Re: Division II Sectional Seed Meeting and Tournament


Your wrestling team has been assigned to participate in the Division II Sectional Wrestling Tournament at Napoleon High School on February 19 & 20, 2016.  The OHSAA has posted revised Individual Tournament Regulations on the OHSAA website.  No tournament meeting will be scheduled on Thursday.   Rosters must be submitted online by 7:00 PM on Thursday, February 18; wrestlers are locked into their weights at that time.  The seeding meeting will be Friday at 2:30pm, ½ hour before weigh-ins.  Brackets will be drawn, but will not be official until weigh-ins at 3:00pm are confirmed.      

Please make sure that the following actions are taken and that I receive the following items prior to weigh-ins on Friday:

            1. Official Eligibility list

            2. Alpha Master report and the wrestler weigh-in sheet


Roster and seed information will be submitted online at www.baumspage.com prior to Thursday, February 18 at 7:00 p.m. The window opens on Sunday, January 17 at 8:00 AM.


Seed criteria is uniform statewide and may be found in 10.6 of the 2016 OHSAA regulations.  Criteria will include returning 2015 state placer (1-3), returning 2015 state placer (4-8), district placer (1-6) and current record by percentage with a minimum of 12 matches.  Freshmen with 25 or 20 wins who have defeated a criteriaed wrestler also may be considered for a seed, by criteria. 


Individual tournament regulations were adopted on October 22; the NWDAB managers meeting was on January 6.  We may receive further guidelines as the tournament approaches.


If you have questions prior to February 19, please contact me at the numbers below.
