Teams wishing to qualify in 4A must decide by THURSDAY!


Recommended Posts

If any team in the state with an enrollment under 2000 students wishes to qualify for the 4A Team State finals rather than their assigned class FOR THE NEXT 2 QUALIFICATION YEARS, you must declare your intention by sometime this Thursday, January 30. Please email atroyer@swissmail.org to request your move to 4A

 

No one will be allowed to move classes later than this because the qualification process is a competition. Some have asked if teams will be able to make decisions when they know if they're good enough to qualify in 4A. The answer is "no." They must declare where they want to compete so the competition can proceed fairly with teams clearly assigned to their classes as the individual tournament progresses.

 

If teams are on the fence about your ability to squeeze into the small field of 8 in 4A, I would just remind people that the new 3A division of 8 will be very, very strong. Current IndianaMat #9 Hobart, #10 Franklin, #11 Harrison WL, #14 Mishawaka, #15 Columbus East, #16 Roncalli are all going to be in 3A if they elect to stay. Floyd Central, Bloomington South, Northridge, Plainfield, Mt Vernon-Fortville, East Central, Columbia City (possibly 2A), among numerous others, are all having strong seasons as well. If you're not confident of qualifying in 4A and you want to be at Team State, see how 3A plays out this year and move up next year if you feel 4A is where you belong.

 

See below for enrollment numbers we will be using (all forfeit data here is 2019...2020 won't be finalized until wrestling begins on Saturday). Again, 4A means 2000+ students. The 3A/2A break would have been at 1100+ students this past year with our new 4-class system. The 2A/1A break would have been 522+. Final classification for this year will depend on forfeit numbers of each team on Saturday (only teams with 7+ wrestlers are classified).

@maligned When will we have the new point system? How much will it be different from the past?

I'll post the procedures at the end of the week. The only changes in 3A are 1) to add one extra point to regional and semi-state first round qualifiers for both underclassmen and seniors and 2) to add a full-lineup bonus of 3 points for 14 wrestlers and 1 point for 13 wrestlers.

 

All will stay the same in 2A and 1A since the teams will be virtually the same as in the past. 

 

In 4A, scoring will have a number of minor adjustments to reflect the bigger dual meet impact for the biggest schools of having guys get to semi-state second round, state, and state placement levels.

Thanks! Will the categories for sectional and regional stay the same?

How will you submit for an injured underclassmen?

 

For example, we have a 2x Semi-state qualifier, Will Nix 182,  go down to injury during football season and was unable to wrestle this season. He will be a senior next season. What is the process for this. 

 

Thanks.

We'll publish qualification procedures later this week that will include detailed instructions for sending injury info, and then you'll have until the week before state to get it in.

For clarification: Mt. Vernon (Posey) is listed as having 1 forfeit. We don't have any. 

Antknee is right. That's 2019 forfeit data, but it is the enrollment data the IHSAA and us are using for classification for this year. This season's forfeit data will be finalized after everyone steps on the mat this weekend.
