Seeding Procedures

Participating teams, 2A and 3A, will be seeded by their won/loss percentage in matches wrestled on or before Saturday, January 27, 2024.

If participating teams have the same won/loss percentage, the higher seed will go to the team who won the dual meet between the two teams involved.

If participating teams have the same won/loss percentage, the higher seed will go to the team with the greater number of victories.

If participating teams have the same won/loss record and did not wrestle each other, the higher seed will be determined by a flip of a coin.

If the number of participating schools is not a power of 2, the highest seeded teams will receive byes in the quarter-final and semi-final rounds as necessary to complete the bracket to a power of 2. (Highest seeded = #1, #2, etc.)

**NOTE** District team championship bouts do count on an individual wrestler's overall record, but DO NOT count toward individual seeding points for sectionals or districts.
