2023-24 National Girls High School Wrestling Rankings

235 pounds

The high school regular season has ended. All of the official and unofficial girls state high school championships have been held, finishing off in March with the Ohio and Pennsylvania state meets. This ranking was heavily influenced by the results of those state championship events, which led to considerable changes in every weight class. 

Also influencing the selections was the first of the major post-season events, the 2024 USA Wrestling Folkstyle National Championships for high school wrestlers in Cedar Falls, Iowa. The first of the USA Wrestling Regional events has been held, as well as some all-star competitions.

There are three new No. 1 ranked wrestlers in the March rankings: Aubre Krazer of Pennsylvania (130), Bella Williams of Oklahoma (135) and Sydney Perry of Illinois (145). 

One of the No. 1 wrestlers changed weight classes, and remained at No. 1, Taina Fernandez of Maryland, who is now ranked at 125 pounds.  

The No. 1 ranked athletes who remained at the top of their weight class are Jaclyn Bouzakis of Pennsylvania (100), Morgan Turner of Illinois (105), Audrey Jimenez of Arizona (110), Isabella Marie Gonzales of California (115), Everest Leydecker of Arizona (120), Kaidance Gerg of Idaho (140), Eduarda Rodrigues of California (155), Piper Fowler of Tennessee (170), Sabrina Nauss of Michigan (190) and Gemma Templeman of California (235). 

There are only a few changes in the Pound-For-Pound (P-4-P) rankings. No. 1 Audrey Jimenez of Arizona remains on top. The only new athletes added to the list are Jordyn Fouse of Pennsylvania, who comes in at No. 24 in the P4P and Molly Allen of Iowa, who is the new No. 25.

The next National Girls High School Ranking will be in early May, which will feature many of the large post-season events held in April, including the USA Wrestling Women’s Nationals in Spokane, Wash., the USA Wrestling Girls National High School Recruiting Showcase in Las Vegas, the NHSCA Nationals in Virginia Beach and many others. 

The next rankings may include the re-introduction of the 95-pound weight class, which was not posted during the regular season, because no state associations use that weight class during the regular season. 

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 or updates on their achievements, please send it by email to girlsrankings@usawrestling.org. The quality of these rankings continue to improve as people choose to share updated information.
