The National Wrestling Hall of Fame, USA Wrestling and FloWrestling are again partnered to create preseason national rankings for high school girls wrestlers for the 2020-21 season.
This ranking evaluates all girls enrolled in grades 9-12, and athletes from all 50 states are eligible for selection.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the last National Girls High School Rankings were published in March 2020. The committee chose to publish the 2020-2021 preseason ranking earlier than last year, due to the changes in the sport which have occurred because of this historic international challenge.
Almost all of the major national and international events which are used to evaluate performance were either cancelled or postponed in the spring and summer. There were a limited number of competitions for high school girls in the last few months, and a number of the nation’s best athletes did get opportunities to wrestle. These events were researched and used as part of the preseason rankings.
