According to OHSAA tournament rules, wrestlers will make scratch +2 LBS for Day 1 of the tournament (Example:  106 weight class = 108 allowed weigh in).  Scratch +3 lbs for day 2 of the tournament.  NOTE: Due to the threat of inclement weather in our region, and for the safety of our athletes and fans, the OHSAA has granted us weigh out procedures.  In doing so, there will be no opportunity for weighs in’s on the morning of day 2.  Wrestlers must make weight during the weigh out period that evening of Day 1.

Freshman / Sophomore 2nd Chance Tournament

This worked out GREAT last year and is back by popular demand of the coaches.  Any Freshman or Sophomore who does not make it to day 2 of the tournament has the opportunity to wrestle in a 2nd chance “quick run” tournament on day 2 in the auxiliary gym.  Matches are 3 minutes and are not “official” so they cannot be counted towards their season record report.  It is considered a scrimmage and gives opportunity for our younger wrestlers to get more experience. More details announced at coaches meeting prior to day 1.


Trophies for team champion, team runner-up, and 3rd place team.
Awards for individual champion, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th place (7th and 8th place newly added).
Outstanding Wrestler of Tournament will be selected by Head Coaches vote.
