"Freestyle Bracketing Question"

Hi Bill,

I was wondering how it is determined which kid gets put in which bracket (if there is two).  And how is it determined who gets the bye first?

Thanks,
Melanie Grossaint

Editor's Response

Random draw. The computer generates numbers for each competitor (just like you used to draw out of a bowl) and assigns them. If there is more than one bracket and you have people from the same team in that weight, then those on the same team will be in separate brackets.  At state, if there are wrestlers who have been taking the top places each weekend and they end up in the same side of the bracket, then the pairing room will separate those wrestlers, also.

As far as the bye, it's always the person on the bottom of the list that gets it first round. (And the random draw number determines who is on the bottom.)
