That date can't get here fast enough. The gym at NMHS is functional, but too small for the needs of the school. This became apparent during the Hawkins Memorial Wrestling Tour- nament on Saturday. The Bulldogs hosted 17 teams for a four-mat varsity tournament. Although the wrestling part of the tournament was great, I saw three problems that I haven't seen at any other tournaments. The first was the layout of the gym. To accommodate the four mats, the gym's visitor bleachers were moved to create an L-shape with the home bleachers. The four mats were then laid out side-by-side in a square. In order to provide a walkway, two of the mats were right up against the brick wall, so parts of mats were placed against the wall to prevent out-of-bounds wrestlers from hurting themselves on the wall. Now, H1 mention the walkway. Ab)ut 2 feet of space was between the bleachers and the two other mats. And this apparently wasn't enough space. During the tournament, I saw spectators walking on the edges of the mats to avoid bumping into people. And I also saw some spectators walk across the mats. In one case, spectators walked on a mat during a match between the ring and the coaches. "There's a match going on!" one of the coaches exclaimed and I agreed with him, since they'd walked in front of my camera also. Finally, the By EMILY mats were so close HANSON together that out- of-bounds wres- tlers sometimes landed on a mat that wasn't theirs. During North Mason senior Chase Davis' quarterfinal match, his team- mate, senior Victor McIntosh, was wrestling on the mat next to him. When McIntosh and his opponent went out-of-bounds, they landed in the circle of Davis' mat during Davis' match. Luckily, Davis and his opponent were close to the center of the mat, so the two pairs didn't collide. That's closer to a collision than there should have been, however. I asked North Mason Athletic Di- rector Mark Swofford what the maxi- mum occupancy of the gym was and he said about 800, so the tournament wasn't above capacity, but there just wasn't enough space for everything that was going on. When the new school opens, the gym will seat about 1,500 people. Considering how much room would be required for that many people, I can only imagine how much larger the gym itself will be. And I can't wait to see it. Scoreboard BASKETBALL Boys' basketball Shelton Saturday -- Aberdeen 57, Shelton 47 SHS..13 7 10 17--47 AHS .... 8 23 12 14--57 SHS: T. Speaks, 21 points; C.
