    Sectional Seeding Criteria Question

    But back to original question- does being a quarterfinalist in semi state in previous season automatically seed you higher than your winning percentage? The way I read seeding criteria in our trackwrestling information was 1. Does wrestler have 10 matches? 2. Was wrestler quarterfinalist? 3. Winning percentage record 4......so on and so forth.

    Sectional Seeding Criteria Question

    Thanks. I’m a second year parent in high school wrestling and just trying to educate myself on the technical aspect of wrestling, seeding, brackets, and this whole weight rules and seeding criteria from IHSAA. Appreciate it!

    Sectional Seeding Criteria Question

    I questioned that weight loss too, but if that’s true, that he wrestled up, what’s the reason behind why someone would do that? Or why a coach would do that? Is there a good strategy for that?

    Sectional Seeding Criteria Question

    That too makes sense, I wouldn't even have thought of it that way. Thank you. This is why I asked, to see if I was looking at it wrong. In our case, we know that the 3 wrestlers with better records have not had a "easy" schedule, but it does make sense to prevent that.

    Event Changes for 1/14-1/19

    Tri- Eastern Conference rescheduled to Friday 5:00 PM
  6. Trying to understand this and may be reading it wrong, if someone can explain: Example: A wrestler wrestles 160 all season. Come sectional he wrestles 145. There are 3 wrestlers with much higher winning percentage and better records than him, however because he was the only one out of the 145's who made it to the Quarterfinal round of Semi-State he automatically gets #1 seed? Is that accurate? And if it is accurate, is that a broken system or criteria? Trying to understand it is all and decide in my head if that's shady or fair. Not that it would give him much advantage if the other 3 are truly better wrestlers, but trying to see that thought process through IHSAA rules, if it is indeed correct. Thanks guys.

    How about those wrestlebacks?

    Hey open your eyes we aren't saying kids didn't deserve to advance. We aren't saying that kid didn't earn his spot or do what needed to be done to go. We are saying that you should not have two top seed wrestlers wrestling in the ticket round. Restructure those brackets and those two would both be advancing! Get an open mind and quit reading to respond; read to listen to the other side!

    It's sad when you see two top seed wrestlers wrestling each other in the ticket round. When they both deserve to be advancing!

    Frosh/Soph State questions

    Ahhh I hate this daylight savings time! LOL!

    How about those wrestlebacks?

    Agree! I'm not trying to knock any wrestler, but there were quite a few clearly qualified State wrestlers who did not advance. For 138 example, a few greats would have been better off placing 3rd at Regionals rather than winning. They would have been a shoo in to State. Start seeding them! Surely we can come up with clear criteria?!

    Frosh/Soph State questions

    Are they not updating brackets on trackwrestling this year? Wrestling was scheduled for 10:00 but I see nothing updated on trackwrestling.

    Good example for your wrestlebacks. Go see 138 bracket at Fort Wayne, need I say more? Rutter, Fiechter, Jamarri, Wells, all good wrestlers. Clearly Rutter should be state bound!

    Fort Wayne Semi-State gets a POUND

    Right, school was closed today and if anything like our school, we aren't allowed to practice if school is closed. So they didn't practice because school was closed.

    Fort Wayne Semi-State gets a POUND

    The reason is because more than half the schools closed due to the weather today.

    East Chicago weather report

    Our supertindent once forbid our Coach to take the Regional Qualifiers to Regional due to the snow. He asked if parents could drive them as an option and she said if you show up at Regionals, you'll be fired. I guess schools take this stuff pretty serious! I'm sure it is hard to reschedule an event this size. However, safety should always be first in the parents' and coaches' mind. A title isn't worth a life. If you don't feel comfortable, don't go. Hopefully though all meteorologist are wrong again, and smooth sailing for all the boys!
