High School

Drawing and Seeding

A seeding committee will determine the seeds at a meeting on Tuesday, February 12. Please submit as much information as possible on your seedable wrestlers on the Track Wrestling site, including significant wins and losses. If you know there is going to be a difficult seeding situation, please speak to a member of the seeding committee ahead of time and explain your wrestler’s situation. The seeds will be emailed out or available on Track Wrestling to all coaches by Wednesday morning and can be appealed up until Thursday at 12:00 PM. If a seed is not appealed prior to that time, then the seedings will be final. The Seeding Committee will review all appeals and make final decisions. No appeals will be heard after Thursday.

We will seed 8 wrestlers and one alternate per weight class. Byes will be randomly drawn by the computer. If a seeded wrestler is scratched, all seeded wrestlers below the scratch will move up and the alternate will become the 8th seed.

Length of Matches

All championship round matches shall be 2-2-2. All consolation bouts will be 1-2-2.

Order of Bouts

All matches will be given numbers and called in numerical order based on mat availability. Be aware of your number and be ready to wrestle when called. The tournament is double elimination.
