Dual Meet Format
SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE DUAL MEET FORMAT OR MATCHES.
IN A DUAL, TRI OR QUAD MEET
TEAMS COMPETE VS EACH OTHER BY WEIGHT CLASS IN ORDER TO ACCUMULATE TEAM POINTS FOR A TEAM TOTAL EACH INDIVIDUAL MATCH DURING THE MEET HAS THE POSSIBILITY OF GAINING 6 POINTS FOR THE TEAM DEPENDING ON THE OUTCOME.
IN INDIVIDUAL MATCHES:
A WIN BY 7 POINTS OR LESS IS A DECISION WIN AND WORTH 3 TEAM POINTS
A WIN BY 8-14 POINTS IS A MAJOR DECISION WIN AND WORTH 4 TEAM POINTS
A WIN BY 15 POINTS OR MORE IS A TECH. FALL AND WORTH 5 TEAM POINTS
A WIN BY PIN / FORFIET / DISQUALIFICATION OR DEFAULT IS WORTH 6 TEAM POINTS
DURING A TEAM MATCH EACH TEAM CAN USE 1 WRESTLER IN EACH OF THE FOLLOWING WEIGHT CLASSES THAT COUNT TOWARDS THE TEAM SCORE;
55 / 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 / 85 / 90 / 95 / 100 / 107 / 115 / 122 / 130 / 140 / 150
At the end of those weight classes a TEAM WINNER IS DETERMINED BY THE TEAM THAT HAS THE MOST POINTS.
Since we have several wrestlers in each weight class and some that are over 150lbs those wrestlers would compete in individual exhibition matches in conjunction with the TEAM MEET. Remember every match that you wrestle regardless of it being for team points or exhibition counts towards your individual record. So do not think because you may not be the "starter" that your match does not count.
THE STARTER IN EACH WEIGHT CLASS WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE HEAD COACH PRIOR TO EACH DUAL MEET. IN MOST CASES IT IS PRETTY OBVIOUS WHO THAT INDIVIDUAL IS. KEEP IN MIND THAT DURING TEAM DUAL MEETS I DO WHAT I CAN WITH THE LINE UP TRYING TO GET MATCH UPS THAT FAVOR US AND TRY TO WIN THE TEAM MATCH WHEN POSSIBLE. SOME STARTERS MAY BE BUMPED UP A WEIGHT CLASS SOMETIMES IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THIS, I DON'T SEND WRESTLERS OUT THAT I KNOW HAVE NO CHANCE OF SUCCESS SO BE READY TO WRESTLE AT EVERY MATCH.
TOURNAMENTS WHICH YOU ARE PLACED IN AN INDIVIDUAL BRACKET ARE THE TIME FOR INDIVIDUAL ACHIEVEMENT.
