Will only be open to coaches. When preliminary results have been calculated, they will be placed on the front table in the tab room.
When the last round of finals begins, we will close the tab room, so we can get to awards assembly quickly and efficiently.


A lounge for coaches, judges, and bus drivers will be located in the FCCLA room. A concession stand will also be provided for your students.


Our school administration allows us to host this tournament.
Therefore, in order for us to continue to do so, please instruct your students to be respectful of our school and our classrooms. Also, Mounds is a tobacco-free and vape-free campus.
