Pound-For-Pound and Top 25 Rankings
The National Wrestling Hall of Fame, USA Wrestling, and FloWrestling has published the Preseason Rankings for high school girls wrestlers for the 2021-22 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 USMC Junior and 16U Nationals in Fargo, North Dakota, July 16-23, which set entry records in both age divisions and featured spectacular competition in all weight divisions.
