Order of Events:
8:00-8:20 Coaches Meeting
8:30 Wrestling Begins
The McGee Wrestling Tournament is designed to offer a competitive tournament
for middle school students. The tournament will host some of the best wrestlers
in New England.
The fee per competitor will be $15.00. Any team with more than
20 wrestlers may enter for a team price of $250.00. Please make any checks
payable to Catherine M. McGee Middle School.
Note: All wrestlers must be paid for before they are able
to participate in the tournament.
Participants must currently be enrolled in middle school, grades 6-8, or
attend a middle school as a fifth grader.
Number of participants:
Each school may enter as many wrestlers as it wishes. Because weight classes
will be determined on exact weight, one or more wrestler of the same weight
Each coach should make a list of wrestlers entered in the tournament. Place
an asterisk next to 15 wrestlers who will be allowed to earn team points
in the sixth grade division, and an asterisk next to the 15 wrestlers you
wish to earn points for the seventh and eighth grade division. Place another
asterisk next to the 3 wrestlers you wish to seed in the sixth grade division,
and 3 wrestlers you wish to seed in the seventh and eighth grade division.
For the good of the tournament please seed your 3 best wrestlers.
Weight Classes & Brackets:
All wrestlers will be weighed the night before the tournament and arranged
by order of weight from lightest to heaviest. Wrestlers will then be separated
in groups of eight according to their division and these will be the various
classes. This year we expect around 400 wrestlers and approximately 40
weight classes. Seeded wrestlers will be placed away from each other by
draw. For instance if two wrestlers are seeded in a weight class, by chance
one will be selected 1st seed, and the other 2nd seed. All non-seeded wrestlers
will then be placed by chance in the remaining six spots. Every effort
will be made so wrestlers will not have to wrestle their own teammates.
Order of Wrestling:
Round 1 Quarter final matches- 6 mats - (1.5-1.5-1.5)
Round 2 First round consolation matches - 6 mats - (1-1-1)
Round 3 Semifinal matches- 6 mats - (1.5-1.5-1.5)
Round 4 Second round consolation matches- 6 mats - (1-1-1)
Round 5 Consolation finals- 3 mats - (1-1-1)
Round 6 Championship finals - 3 mats - (1.5-1.5-1.5)
If a wrestler loses their first match they will be placed in the consolation
bracket for their weight class.
If a wrestler should win the first match and then lose their second match,
they will then be placed in the consolation bracket.
The two wrestlers who win their first two matches will wrestle for the
championship of their class. We plan to wrestle the finals on two mats
in an effort to save time.
By the normal process of elimination, the consolation winner or third place
finishers will be decided. This will mean as many as four matches during
the day for some wrestlers. We will note the time each match ends in order
to insure at least 45 minutes between matches.
All matches in the championship bracket will be (1.5-1.5-1.5) . In the
consolation bracket the matches will be (1-1-1).
In the event of an overtime situation, we will start both wrestlers in
the neutral position and the first wrestler to score a point will be declared
We will follow National Federation rules.
Each team may have 15 wrestlers earning team points in the sixth grade
division, and 15 wrestlers earning points in the seventh/eighth grade division.

third, and 1 for fourth. (The most points a team could earn would be 60.)
In case of a tie, the team with the most wrestlers earning points would
