SECTIONAL SEEDING CRITERIA
Seeding for the Sectional will be based on the following criteria:
Returning state placer (1-3) at any weight class
Returning state placer (4-8) at any weight class. A “New” (freshman or upperclassmen that was not a contender last year) wrestler that has more than 25 wins and has defeated a wrestler listed above him on the list and has a higher winning percentage will be seeded above the returning state place winner at any weight class (4-8). *The coach must e-mail the credentials to the manager.
Returning district placer (1-6) at any weight class. A “New” (freshman or upperclassmen that was not a contender last year) wrestler that has more than 20 wins and has a higher winning percentage than the returning district place winner will be seeded above the returning district place winner at any weight class (1- 6).
The higher placer at each level earns the higher seed. If two or more wrestlers have identical place finishes, the wrestler returning at the same
weight earns the higher seed.
Previous year’s tournament place finish MUST have been at an OHSAA
c. A returning placer can be from Division I, II, or III.
