"2007 Folkstyle Nationals results are NOT RIGHT!!!!"

To whom this may concern:

My son recently competed in the Nationals, and when I went into the 2007 Nationals results to see his name, it was not there!!! He placed 6th and IS FROM UTAH!! So please tell me why his name is not in the results. I know of another boy that took 2nd and is from Richfield and also was not listed. Why is it that only a chosen few get their name listed. If you ask me and others, that isn't very fair. These boys go out there and wrestle their heart out, they deserve to have their names in the results, whether they are ranked or not, they deserve to be on there!!!!

Dakota Olsen-12 & Under, 76lbs, from Hurricane, Utah, 6th place
Chantz Ogden-10 & Under, 76lbs, from Richfield Utah, 2nd place

PLEASE PUT THEIR NAMES ON THE RESULTS BECAUSE THEY DESERVE IT!!!!!!!!!

Thank you

Mandi

The computer system had problems at that tournament. That’s why so many of the kids did not have their teams listed with their names on the brackets. (It listed numbers, rather than team names, as you should recall.) I am all about recognizing the kids for their accomplishments, or I wouldn’t have spent those hours retyping the results to post online. Where I could, I checked the names against my other tournament results, trying to verify which wrestlers were, indeed, from Utah, when the team was not listed. As a result, I found at least 50 that I could not have identified otherwise.

It took hours to do that. And I am more than happy to do it, because that is the purpose in having this site, and I am 100% behind these kids. That said, I am the last person you want to be accusing of not recognizing these kids for their accomplishments. I recognize them locally and promote them nationally. If you want to yell at someone, yell about the computer system not working properly.

As far as the two you pointed out, I will certainly add their names to the results for placing. Because, just as you said, they fought hard for those accomplishments, and deserve their moment in the sun.

Thank you for working to correct this problem, but I can assure you that I was not "yelling" at you. A few parents had called me and brought this to my attention, and I responded. One of the wrestlers that I had listed was devastated to discover that his name was not listed. I will let him know that it is being corrected.

Again, thank you for your help.
