Wrestling: Power points gaffe surfaces near cutoff

Apparently, the power points used to determine which teams qualify for the upcoming sectional tournaments were even further off than most believed them to be.

An email sent out by New Jersey Wrestling Coaches Association president Dan Smith on Thursday alerted coaches to mistakes in the power point totals which were mistakenly being calculated using last year's points chart.

The top six teams in each section qualify for the tournament that begins on Feb. 9. The cutoff to qualify is Saturday, Jan. 31.

Points calculator Larry McMillan indicated in the first version of the rankings released two weeks ago that the point totals were incorrect due to trouble locating scores on Track wrestling, which has been the bane of writers, coaches and fans this season. The site has proven very unfriendly to users who are seeking the same information that was very accessible on the NWCA Scorebook site, which used to house all dual meet scores and wrestler information.
