Alternate Question

Recommended Posts

What are the stipulations in which an alternate is used? 

 

And if an alternate is used  do they replace the exact seed or does everyone move up a seed?

At the regional the 5th place from the replaced wrestlers sectional is the first alternate. If that wrestler is unavailable then the next alternate is the 6th place wrestler from that sectional. They do not replace the exact seed. Everyone moves up from that sectional.

and regionals is the only level where an alt can be used I found out a few years ago.

Semi-state used to or at least I’ve seen them allow alternates in at that level before.  Did they adjust that rule recently?

isn't there an alternate at State (loser to eventual SS champ who doesn’t place top 4)?

That is interesting to hear.  A son of a friend of mine was told to show up early at Bankers Life the last two years as a possible alternate ... just in case.

I have personally inputted alternates into the New Castle Semi-State and at Banker's Life. I do this if not every year at the SS, it is every other year. Whoever told you otherwise is incorrect. The ADs are involved as are the other Tournament Directors at each site.

I would have to go back and find emails from IHSAA there might be more to the story than my old brain can remember.  Maybe I am not remembering this situation correctly which wouldn't be the first time that happened....lol

I wouldn't doubt that you were told by ADs or the IHSAA something contradictory. I seem to have noticed a pattern with that over the years. ; )
