Representatives: Gary Wise, AJ Bey, Chris Switzer

Review:

  1. Division I tournaments went well.
  2. Recommendation. In the event that a coach does not show up, the manager should place that team at a site based on seed rather than place at end.
    a. Absent team is drawn into a sectional site with fewest number of teams when it’s their turn to
    choose.
    b. Absent teams drawn into a sectional site by flip of a coin.
  3. Divisions II and III went smoothly.
  4. Alternates get free admission in first round.
  5. Coaches’ dress code much better.

Review:

  1. Division I Girls like a more southern sectional.
