Inaugural National Girls High School Rankings

John Sachs McKayla Campbell

USA Wrestling, FloWrestling and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum have partnered to create regular national rankings for high school girls wrestlers, starting with its July 2017 ranking.

The staffs from these three leading wrestling organizations will work together to strategically publish this ranking throughout the year. The girls high school ranking will appear on the websites of all three organizations, and be promoted through each of their different media platforms.

The first ranking released today is prior to the U.S. Marine Corps Junior and Cadet Nationals in Fargo, N.D., July 14-22. The final ranking for the 2016-17 season will be published shortly after the U.S. Marine Corps Junior and Cadet Nationals in Fargo.

This ranking will evaluate all girls enrolled in grades 9-12, and include athletes from all 50 states. There are six states which sponsor official girls state high school championships, while many other states are also developing their girls high school program.

Currently, according to the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), there were 13,496 girls who wrestled nationally on the high school level, representing 2,000 different high schools. Girls high school wrestling participation has grown for 27 consecutive years, and is expected to continue this growth well into the future.

Coaches, parents and athletes will be encouraged to provide information about specific athletes and their achievements throughout the year for the committee to consider. If they have information on specific girls who should be considered for ranking, please send it by email to
