02/06/13 – Wrestling State Notes 2

February 6, 2013 Wrestling Blog Updates

Today Coaches, I want to send this reminder of how important the 5th place finisher in regions can become. Should a school have an athlete finish 1-4 in the region and he/she is unable to compete in the state tournament due to schedule conflicts, injury or other documented reason; the remainder of the bracket will be “rolledup”, and the replacement wrestler seeded fourth. If a bracket position is vacated and unable to be filled by an alternate from the region, the option will roll in random order to another region. Coaches are advised to weigh-in any fifth place regional wrestler in case of replacement the day of the State Tournament. If any of you have a wrestler pull out, please contact this office ASAP so that we may call the next school inline, so that their 5th place finisher may enter the tournament.
