Other schools that will be at Riverside High School in Oakland on Saturday, Feb. 10 for the IHSAA 1A District 9 meet are AHSTW, CAM, Central Decatur, Coon Rapids-Bayard, Griswold, Lenox, Mount Ayr, Riverside and Southwest Valley.

District Tournament Bracket

  • As per the Wrestling Coaches Advisory Committee recommendation, eight-person brackets will be used for all district meets, regardless of the number of wrestlers competing in a weight class. Wrestlers on championship brackets with less than eight wrestlers and consolation brackets with less than four wrestlers will receive byes until they reach a bracket with an opponent.
  • Weight classes with more than eight wrestlers will require pigtail matches. The first pigtail match would involve the No. 8 and No. 9 seeds. In Class 1A, the second pigtail match would involve the No. 7 and No. 10 seeds, and the third pigtail match would involve the No. 6 and No. 11 seeds.
  • Pigtail match losers are eliminated from further competition. Pigtail match winners are entered into the tournament on the appropriate quarterfinal line. No team scoring of any kind is given to pigtail match winners.
  • If byes are necessary, they will be drawn according to NFHS rule 10-3.

Advancing From District Competition

For each of the Class 1A district tournaments, the champion and runner-up wrestler in each weight class will advance to the state tournament, which starts Wednesday, Feb. 14 at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines. See full schedule here.
