((My how kids have changed, hair color is just the beginning. The single and double A state wrestling tournament has kept pace, especially when it comes to keeping score and time of the matches. ((:))
When the tourney first rolled out the mats nine years ago at the Salem Civic Center, time and score were kept with pencil and paper. Now a state of the art timing system monitors each mat. Computers and mouse pads have replaced pens and paper, improvements that ease the minds of coaches.))
