2018 Shore Conference Tournament


I have received plenty of questions in regards to the seeding process and how certain wrestlers were seeded in certain spots. First off, here are the tournament regulations which explain the nuts and bolts of the tournament and how it is seeded. Information on NJSIAA quality points and prestige points can be found here on pages 7-10.

The cutoff for the SCT was Saturday, Jan. 20, so matches wrestled on Monday, Jan. 22 do not count toward seeding. Results entered into TrackWrestling.com are used to seed the tournament. This is the same way the NJSIAA does it for its district tournaments. Coaches are responsible for having that information entered and up to date, as noted in the tournament regulations.

The top 24 wrestlers based on quality points were placed in their respective weight classes, then prestige points were used to form a pre-seed for each weight class. Ultimately, head-to-head results were used to determine the final seeds. As always, triangles, quadrangles, etc. get thrown out of the equation.

Hopefully this helps alleviate any confusion.
