Preliminary rounds are round robins where everyone wrestles everyone else in their pool. The preliminary pool includes 4 to 7 wrestlers each depending on the number of entries. Advancement from the pools into the placing brackets is by record. There will be two to four pools in each weight class with additional rounds in the placing brackets. With this format, all the wrestlers get 4 to 8 matches and we are able to hold a true finals round. Teams are allowed to enter up to two wrestlers in a weight class (one will be non-scoring).

Middlebury Wrestling 2018 Hubie Wagner – A Lot Of Wrestling
Middlebury Wrestling 2018 Hubie Wagner – A lot of wrestling is just exactly that! Because it’s a pool format and a 2 day tournament, wrestlers can get between 5 – 9 matches over the course of both days. When I spoke to Coaches Zack and Rick Sharron from Newport, NH, they were ecstatic over the amount of matches their wrestlers had!
