Pontchartrain Center to Host LHSAA 2012 State Wrestling Finals

Posted: 12-07-2011 | Categories: Wrestling, Brackets & Results, Wrestling

The Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) announced today that an agreement has been made for the Pontchartrain Center to host the 2012 State Wrestling Finals on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 11 – 12, 2012 in Kenner, La.

“The LHSAA is delighted to bring the 2012 State Wrestling Finals to the Pontchartrain Center and look forward to welcoming spectators from around the state to Kenner for two thrilling days of wrestling,” said LHSAA Executive Director Kenny Henderson.

Originally, the city of Shreveport was awarded the wrestling championships when the Shreveport Regional Sports Authority (SRSA), who was authorized to officially represent and make commitments for the Shreveport region in the area of sports marketing and recruitment, made proposals to host the event at no costs to the LHSAA and its member schools. 

Due to internal changes within local government, SRSA was replaced by the Shreveport Bossier Sports Commission (SBSC) who informed the LHSAA that they were unable to honor the original 2010 contract.
