    Posted: Mar 03 2023 at 8:32pm
Towards the end of the first round of matches tonight (the first quarterfinal was on the mat), Souderton HS lost power due to a down transformer.

According to the local authorities, the power would not be restored this evening.  So the decision was made to resume wrestling at the regularly scheduled time of 9:30 AM Saturday morning.

Wrestling will resume with the 4 matches on the mat that were interrupted, so we'll wrestle with a shorter break before the finals.

Check the PIAA District 1 website (https://www.piaad1.org/) for updates tomorrow in case there are still issues with the power in the area.

Thanks for the update GOE, appreciate it.  Yep, assuming everything can start at 9:30 tomorrow, should be able to complete the tournament.  There's that break before the finals that will be used to completed the matches.  My guess is the finals might be pushed back a little but shouldn't be much.

If I get any updates, I'll be sure to post something here.

Everything appears to be good to resume as planned at 9:30 this morning.

The new estimated time for the semis is approx 12:30-12:45.

The plan is to run with limited breaks today until prior to the finals.  A break will be needed there to setup for the finals.  Finals might start a little later than the original plan of 6 PM.
