There are conferences that have been doing this for years.  Those with small teams have been doing their entire conference duals in one evening.

We do it too...5 meets in one day but thereís 11 schools so canít get it done in a day.

This is just better for wrestling, and not just the wrestlers. We'll see more action as fans, better opps for coaches. Finally, a common sense move.
If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

Agreed!!!
For the coaches that enjoy being strategic its a lot more fun being able to line up duals and tournaments that are designed to get your wrestlers seeded at state.
Trackwrestling seeding weigh's previous state placement at the highest points with head to head competition next and how you place at section's last. So if you come out of a crappy section and you have no head to head wins over the other guys in your bracket you will most likely not get seeded/or seeded very low. So coaches get out and book good competition for your guys, it will pay dividends at the end of the year with the new rules and less restrictions. Another tip in the future with the new system is don't book your entire season leave one or two events open based on the in season needs of your team. Example you may have had a state caliber team headed into the season but with injury's it may fall apart on you or maybe you have a young team thats exceeding all your expectations and they may need a challenge (or a snow cancelation). This is a whole new game and a great step in making Wisconsin wrestling more competitive.

Is this official for this coming season?   The rules and regulations area on wiaawi.org still references the 7x7 rules.  Does anyone have a link to a document or wiaa reference to the new guidance?
