Track Seeding Procedures 
Seeding  - Only schools participating with teams will be seeded. Schools with individual entries will be assigned to a district tournament section.  NOTE: Division II girls and Division III boys and girls schools will not be seeded as they will compete in one district tournament respectively qualifying the top four in each event to the regional tournament.
 
Vote on Seeded Teams 
1.      Each school shall complete the online seeding procedures. www.ohsaa.org/cdab.
2.      Ties in seeds will be broken as follows:  The team that receives the most individual votes at the tied position or above shall receive the higher seed.  If a tie still exists, the tie will be broken by a coin toss. The school to call the toss will be the first one to appear in an alphabetic listing of the schools without the use of the respective city name unless the city name is part of the official school name.  Selection will go from A-Z in even numbered years; Z-A in odd numbered years. 
 
Regional Qualifiers: 
The number of regional qualifiers is determined by the procedure stated in General Sports Regulation 16 and adopted by the OHSAA Board of Directors.
 
Placement of Schools in Each District Tournament Section
1.      The last seeded school shall select first. Site selection will continue in reverse order until 
2.      The remaining schools, representing the number of Regional Qualifiers, shall then select by rank order, starting with the #1 seed. The highest seeded team may choose to pass.  When the next seed has selected, it becomes the higher seed’s selection again.  
3.      When a section is full, the selecting team may bump the lowest seeded school to an alternate section.  A school that is bumped may then choose a site of their choice that is open or occupied by a school that has a lower seed. 
4.      Schools absent from the draw will be placed, by the draw meeting coordinator, according to seed.   If multiple schools are absent, the meeting coordinator will alternate placement of teams between the District sites. 
5.      The Tournament Manager shall rule on any procedures not covered in this policy. The manager is not permitted to change procedures covered in this policy.
