USA Wrestling, FloWrestling and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum are again partnered to create its preseason national rankings for high school girls wrestlers for the 2018-19 season.

This ranking evaluates all girls enrolled in grades 9-12, and include athletes from all 50 states. There are 14 states which sponsor official or emerging girls state high school championships, while many other states are also developing their girls high school program. 

The preseason ranking evaluates success from the summer USA Wrestling schedule, other post-season events and some early pre-season competitions, where top high school girls from across the nation face each other.

The ranking list will indicate what the athlete’s previous ranking was in July’s final 2017-18 ranking.

Four athletes who were ranked No. 1 in the final ranking of 2017-18 have returned and received No. 1 rankings: Emily Shilson of Minnesota (100), Macey Kilty of Wisconsin (152), Tavi Heidelberg of California (200) and Gabi Holloway of Texas (225).

The additional publication dates for the 2018-19 season are January 9, January 13, February 20, March 13, May 1 and June 26.

The staffs from these three leading wrestling organizations are working 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.

Coaches, parents and athletes are 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 girlsrankings@usawrestling.org

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The Cliff Keen Wrestling Club/Michigan RTC will host three-time world medalist Bajrang Punia of India for a month-long training camp in December, the club announced Sunday (Nov. 29). Already qualified for the Tokyo Olympics after his bronze-medal world finish in 2019, Bajrang is currently ranked No. 2 in the world at 65kg."We continue to elevate our training environment at Michigan and are excited to have Bajrang here in Ann Arbor," said Michigan head coach Sean Bormet. "I've closely watched his wrestling over the last several years, and I really respect his fierce competitiveness and work ethic. He is highly regarded around the globe and is a world-class training partner. It's an outstanding opportunity for everyone.""I am excited to train with Michigan's Cliff Keen Wrestling Club," said Bajrang. "This will be my first time going there, so I am looking forward to training with the team. They have some great coaches in Sergei [Beloglazov] and Sean, and I hope to get good partners as well. I know it will be cold there, but I'm prepared. The U.S. has been a great destination for me. There are a lot of wrestling fans there who support me, for which I'm thankful. I'll do my best."Bajrang medaled at 65kg at the last two World Championships, claiming silver in 2018 before his bronze finish in 2019, and previously claimed bronze at 60kg in 2013. He also took 65kg silver at the 2017 U23 World Championships.

With those performances, he has assured himself a seeded start at the Olympic Games next summer.Bajrang will arrive in Michigan next week, and while stateside, he will participate in FloWrestling's eight-man 150-pound bracket on Dec. 18 in Austin, Texas.
