Tournament Scoring

Tournament Scoring

POOL PLACEMENT
There is no seeding in the tournament. We have placed the wrestlers into the pools, working to separate the best wrestlers into different pools. The pool placement was based on national ran kings, national tournament results, prior state tournament results in your home state, win-loss records, and head-to-head competitions when known. Additionally, we have tried separating in the pools all wrestlers that could possibly meet each other at any time during the regular season. Placement was based on information provided from each head coach.

BRACKET PLACEMENT
Wins will be the deciding factor in placement of 1st & 2nd, and 3rd & 4th. In case of ties, the order of tie-breakers will be: most wins, head to head, most team points scored, most falls, most tech falls, most majors, least total fall times, least tech fall time, and most match points scored. In a case where three or more wrestlers are tied, once a wrestler is eliminated from the tie, the criteria process begins over, back at the first criteria and this process is repeated until all ties are broken. The 1st & 2nd place wrestlers from each pool will be placed into the Gold Bracket with 2 points being awarded at that time for sixteenth place. Place points will be given for 1st thru 15th place when they are determined, thereafter. The 3rd & 4th place wrestlers from each pool will be placed in the Silver Bracket. Both Brackets will be wrestled out to sixteenth place. Also wrestlers who lose in the Semifinal will stay to the front side of the bracket to wrestle for 3rd Place.
