National Girls High School Rankings (Jan. 31): No Changes At The Top

The national girls high school rankings for January 31 have been released, recognizing the top high school girl wrestlers in the nation. It is the second ranking of the 2017-18 season.

USA Wrestling, FloWrestling, and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum have partnered to create national rankings for high school girls wrestlers.

It is currently the busy part of the annual high school wrestling season, when high school girls are competing on their school’s team. The high school postseason will be coming up within the next month in states across the nation.

All of the #1 wrestlers in the 14 weight classes from the last ranking have retained their #1 statuses. However, there has been some active movement within many of the weight classes, as a number of athletes have emerged through the high school season so far, including a some talented freshmen starting to make their mark.

The ranking list indicates what the athlete’s previous ranking was for the January 12 rankings.

The release dates for the rest of the high school rankings have been finalized. The other rankings for 2017-18 are scheduled for release on February 21, March 14, April 11, May 23, and July 11.

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. 

Coaches, parents, and athletes are encouraged to continue providing 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 girlsrankings@usawrestling.org
