BILLINGS — The Montana High School Association is seeking backup bids in case tornado damage at the Billings Metra isn’t repaired in time for the 2011 state all-class wrestling tournament and the Class A boys’ basketball tournament.
Venues have until Sept. 3 to submit bids for the two tournaments. For state wrestling, interested parties will be allowed to bid to host all three classifications in one location, or offer bids that would split the tournaments up.
The bids will be rewarded if MetraPark’s arena isn’t ready to host the events, scheduled for February and March. Currently, the only state championship scheduled for Helena is the state cross country meet on Oct. 23 at Bill Roberts Golf Course.
