I was wrong on the placement points -- see below for corrections. ----------- I'm working on a spreadsheet (not sure I'll get it done before nationals). I want to confirm scoring (I always have trouble finding the placement points etc.). 1 bonus point for major decision and tech. fall without back points. 1.5 bonus points for tech. fall with back points. 2 bonus points for fall/forfeit/DQ (but NOT for a bye). You only get the advancement/placement points from a bye if you win your next match, unless it's the last match (one of the 4 placement matches). Actually, I'm not sure what would happen with a bye in later rounds. 1 point for advancement in championship bracket *until* you get to guaranteed placement. 1/2 point for advancement in consolation bracket *until* you get to guaranteed placement. Placement points (they get awarded as you earn guaranteed spots): 1st 16 2nd 12 3rd 9 4th 7 5th 5 6th 3 7th 2 8th 1 If in the Championship bracket you win: Pigtail Round 1 -- 1 point (most wrestlers have a bye and need to win round 1 to collect this point). Round 1 -- 1 point (plus most wrestlers get to collect the 1 point from the pigtail round bye). Round 2 -- 1 point. Quarterfinals -- 3 points (guaranteed 6th (and All American)). Semifinals -- 9 points (guaranteed 2nd). Finals -- 4 points. If in the Consolation bracket you win: Pigtail Round 1 -- 0.5 points (most wrestlers have a bye and need to win the next round to collect). Round 1 -- 0.5 points (most wrestlers will also collect the 0.5 points from the pigtail round bye). Round 2 -- 0.5 points. Round 3 -- 0.5 points. Round 4 -- 1 point (guaranteed 8th (and All American)). Quarterfinals -- 2 points (guaranteed 6th). Semifinals -- 4 points (guaranteed 4th). Finals -- 2 points (3rd place). 5th place match -- 2 points (5th place). 7th place match -- 1 point (7th place). Never realized that the semifinal match (as a single match) is worth more than double any other single match.
