East Penn Conference Duals.... 1/30/2016 - Thoughts?

The inaugural East Penn Conference Team Dual Championships... held at Easton's Middle school January 30, 2016.

With 18 teams in the EPC, members are split into "A" and "B" divisions, with 'power' teams split between the divisions - as a result Parkland and BeCa didn't face Easton and Nazareth during the season - with a unique format - #1 "A" vs #1 "B", #2 "A" vs #2 "B", etc...

I like the concept of these matches, assuming that we’re NOT going to have a single conference but 2 divisions…
However, I’d have preferred to see the Liberty-Emmaus (#3) and Parkland-Easton (#2) matches separately from each other, and from the BeCa-Nazareth (#1) match.

i.e: given a choice, I’d have scheduled as follows:
11am - #3 A v B, #6, #9
1pm - #2 A v B, # 5, #8
3pm - #1 A v B, #4, #7

That both maximizes the ability to see/broadcast THE most competitive matches, AND brings the most fans into the venue throughout the entire day/afternoon.

As it was, we had a choice of which match to really pay attention to…
