I know this was brought up to some extent when sectionals and districts were released, but it was a joke to have this sectional at a middle school gym. Nothing against Spencer here, as they ran a fine meet (there were some technical difficulties, but that could happen at a high school as well); but it was one-sided set of bleachers and rather crowded. I realize Spencer had state speech at the high school and it probably should have been there, but then have one of the other schools host the sectional. Okoboji and Spirit Lake both have fine facilities that would have been great to host the sectional. ELC and Cherokee have older gyms, but also suitable to host a sectional meet. Not sure the capacity of Ridge View gym, but couldn't be worse than the Spencer Middle school.
