Preseason National Girls High School Rankings Released, Pound-For-Pound Rankings Updated
The National Wrestling Hall of Fame, USA Wrestling, and FloWrestling have released the Preseason National Girls High School Rankings for the 2022-23 season. This national ranking evaluates all girls enrolled in grades 8-12, and athletes from all 50 states are eligible for selection.
Last year’s high school graduates have been removed, and many new athletes have joined the rankings for the first time, including eligibility for incoming eighth graders.
The event which clearly had the most impact on the rankings was the record-setting 2022 USMC Junior and 16U Nationals in Fargo, N.D. in July, which set entry records in both age divisions and featured spectacular competition in all weight divisions. The rankings also included the U17 and U20 World Championships, the U15 Pan American Trials, and the launch of the new season, FloWrestling’s Who’s Number One.
