Marty Loy Classic


Saturday, December 21, 2013
Fond du Lac High School (Fans enter through door #14)

UPDATE: Burlington HS is closed today/Friday due to incelement weather, thus all varsity wrestlers will receive a 1-lb allowance at weigh-ins on Saturday morning

We will be running a one-day tournament with 24 teams participating. We will be using a 16-man bracket with rattails to determine our final 16 competitors. We will wrestleback to 5th. All wrestlers will be seeded from 1-24. Those wrestlers seeded 1-8 will be automatically entered and seeded into the 16-man championship bracket. If a bracket has less than 24 wrestlers, the next highest seeded wrestlers will be added to the championship bracket. All lower seeds will wrestle in rattails to get into the scoring 'championship' tournament. Rattail matches will not count for team scoring. Winners of the rattails will be seeded into the 16-man championship draw. Losers of the rattails will be placed in a non-team scoring 'consolation' bracket so that they may get additional varsity matches.

This format allows us to hopefully seed well and decrease the chances that the WIAA daily 5-match rule will come into effect. In the case that a wrestler who competed in a rattail match does wrestle back to the 5-8th places, that would be his 6th match of the day and he would not be able to compete. Thus those 2 wrestlers would share the placement and split the team points.

We will also be hosting a JV tourney simultaneously. JV's will be pre-weighed in by coaches and weights submitted prior to tourney. JV bracket will be 8-man champiosnhip format with hopefully three matches for all wrestlers. Winners of each bracket will win a medal and wall chart.
