Seeding through digital tournament manager TrackWrestling is coming to the Iowa High School Athletic Association’s state traditional wrestling tournament in 2019. In a unanimous decision Monday morning, the Board of Control approved a wrestling advisory committee recommendation to build brackets with criteria that seeds the top eight wrestlers in each of the 14 weight classes across all three classifications.  The online formula will replace the random draw the IHSAA previously used, which paired district champions with district runners-up for the first round of the three-day event. Now, wrestlers are compared in a pre-tournament scoring system against every other qualifier in their 16-person bracket, with the top eight wrestlers receiving seeding and the other eight drawn in at random, while separating qualifiers from the same district tournament.  The IHSAA joins approximately 30 other state associations utilizing TrackWrestling for state tournament seeding.
