Rules of Engagement for Heartland:
All wrestlers must be from the same State. This means the wrestler must reside in the State in order to compete for that State.
Alternates that are brought from States will be put on an Alternate team to the duals and compete within the tournament just like all the other teams. Alternates must be listed on their respective State team for potential use during the event. An Alternate from a State can be used for a different State to fill holes but that Alternate cannot score points in the dual. That Alternate will be counted as a forfeit.
