where are latest rankings for duals? what site? Would be difficult to have sites based on rankings in case top 6 or so all on Eastern or all on Western side of state correct? It would be ideal in and great if all 8 were ranked and spread out across state. Most cases 3-4 on each side though . Just saying that could happen and then no way could have sites based on ranking
The champion and runner-up from the same sectional may, or may not, be assigned to the same regional dual. The regional semifinal pairings will place the highest ranked team at a regional dual team site against the lowest ranked team and the second highest ranked team against the second lowest ranked team, according to the mid-January IWCOA Dual Team Rankings. If there is a tie in the rankings the higher seed goes to the team with the best win-loss percentage. Each class 1A/2A regional meet is a double dual.

The Missouri Valley host site confuses me...especially when you have Logan Magnolia just a few miles away with a higher ranking. I-35 makes sense geographically because there isn't another school in the rankings South of I-80 or East of I-35. Let's face it....there aren't any top 8 ranked teams South of I-80....so geography comes into play. Since they have Regional Duals on a week night....travel time is a issue.

I can't believe that #7 Woodbury Central #8 MFL #9 Logan Magnolia #10 Underwood and # 12 Central Springs would all decline or have other things scheduled. The AD has to put into the state to be a host site in advance.
Just an fyi, remember regionals are on tuesday night. Typical basketball night. Top of Iowa conference has their cross over games that night, this year is in the east. So that would put a home game at central springs.
Regional duals is a joke. State does not do a good job of keeping the top 8 teams as host schools. Coaches aren't knowledgable or take the time to vote on the top 8 teams. Teams that qualify and don't have much of a chance lose a night of practice, and coaches don't end up wrestling their studs, prime example this year was Underwood. Not to mention that just because you are a top two team at sectionals doesn't mean you are a good dual team.
