He's a senior

We have some really good freshmen who will compete for titles down the line. Our second best kid would be going for placement but he let freshmen nerves hit him hard at the qualifier.

So far 9 of the 11 kids advanced.  One was a bye and thus his points have not scored yet.  The 220 lber isn't wrestling, not sure if it's injury, illness, or disciplinary.  So far Pomona is ahead by 6 points but it is very early.

Final tally for Pomona, 1 champion, 2 runners up, 2 thirds, a fourth, a fifth, and a sixth.  Oh and a class 5A team title.

First time in 5 years Moore doesn't have a kid on the podium. Our senior had a tough draw and nearly had his last match until he made a mistake at the very end. The kid he beat in the region finals made the podium, and the two kids he lost to finished 3rd and 4th. It was probably the toughest weight class in the state. We only had two seniors on the team this year about 11 of our starters were freshmen or sophomores, we will back soon.

Kentucky as a whole probably had our worst run state tournament in years. A lot of the bad stuff about it didn't even come out until the last second when it was too late to change anything. They changed the finals format to have the placing matches occur basically the same time as the finals which caused the tournament to not be over until about 11 at night. This was also the first time in years that the finals weren't streamed online (they couldn't "afford it") and they didn't tell anyone until I was already back in Louisville. I could go on about it but I think you guys get the picture. It's bad enough they make these kids wrestle in a horse park

Sounds like a complete cluster****.   The place matches are in the morning and early afternoon in CO.  With 4 classifications there is no way we could run the place matches at the same time.  It would be too unwieldy and unfair to the finalists.

Do you think thats too many, just right, or not enough?

Right now, with the way they have the numbers broke up, we could go back to 3 and still be alright. We could combine 6A/5A, then 4A and then combine 3A/2A/1A. We might end up combining the bottom 3 but who knows.

6A-4A have 16 man brackets, 3A has a 12 man and 2A has an 8man. Our biggest issue is that our private schools pretty much don't support wrestling and the bulk of them are in the 3A division. So we only have like 30 teams for wrestling, but have like 42 teams in 3A. 2A/1A are very small programs with 190 kids or less, but the bulk of them have over 100 or so kids, while 3A consists of schools with only 280 or less, with a few with over 300. And that's boys and girls combined.

However, despite the 5 classes, we have a well attended state tournament with over 9000 fans annually.

My problem with CA's system is, they literally have no small schools with wrestling. Their idea of a small school in CA is 1000 kids or more, when the bulk of the top teams have 2000-4000 HS kids.
