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.
