a. Wrestle-offs will be held during the first few weeks of practice to establish the Varsity and Junior Varsity line-ups. Once a wrestler wins his weight class that is his position. Another wrestler can challenge the starting wrestler at various times throughout the season but must beat the starting wrestler twice to earn that spot. The starting wrestler only needs to beat the challenger once to maintain that position.
b. Wrestlers must be within five pounds of the weight they are planning on wrestling off the day of the wrestle-off. If a wrestler is challenged at a weight and he doesn’t make weight, he forfeits that match. (Example: If a wrestler wants to wrestle-off at 100, he must not weigh more than 105 the day of the wrestle-off.
