Seeding

Because of the efficiency of Trackwrestling's seeding algorithm, a seeding meeting will not be necessary. Seeding will be conducted in accordance with the following tournament rules and criteria:

  •  Head coaches are directly responsible to ensure their team rosters and all seeding information is entered on-time and accurately! Wrestlers who have no seeding criteria entered may not be considered for seeding. Any disgruntled parents or competitors will be reminded of the policy and will be referred to the wrestler's head coach.
  • Lineup Deadline: Tuesday, December 17th, 7:00 PM: Lineups and seeding information (grade in school, season win-loss record, big tournament finishes, returning post-season finishes, etc.) must be entered before this Tuesday night deadline. See below for seeding criteria.
