So how did the brackets get paired this year? Here is a look at the pairing system that came out BEFORE postseason wrestling. IAHSAA does not change these pairings after sectionals or districts tournaments.

One thought on “State Tournament Pairing Formula”
  1. So is this the “random” seeding formula that is used every year. With the exception of different district sites? Curious because I’m wondering what’s the purpose of even having Ind State rankings during the season? As they have no input in the “random” seeding formula? Also curious on why you don’t seed the brackets like the NCAA Wrestling Championships do. Works great and there isn’t a grey area for folks to question how wrestlers are getting seeding randomly. And semis-and finals have the a great chance of having best wrestlers left.
