NCAA Rankings 2018-19

157 Jason Nolf

Unlike the lighter weights, there was plenty of movement here at 157. Tyler Berger beat Ryan Deakin, which, when coupled with his earlier victory over Hayden Hidlay, is good enough to earn the #2 rankings despite a loss to Griffin Parriott at the CKLV. 

Larry Early lost to Logan Parks, the former debuting at #17 in the rankings. Early only falls one spot thanks to his strong resume this season which includes wins over #4 Hidlay and #11 Zach Hartman. 

Alec Pantaleo bounces back up to 157 after a brief sojourn down at 149, but lost to Christian Pagdilao, dropping to #14 in the rankings, while Pagdilao climbs to #13. 

Paul Fox and Columbia's Dan Reed had rough Scuffles, with the former dropping to #20 after a loss teammate Dom Mandarino (for the second time this season) and Zac Carson. Reed drops out of the top 20 after losing to Fox and Penn State's backup Bo Pipher. The aforementioned Carson makes an appearance in the top 20 at #16 thanks to his strong season so far. 

Oklahoma State's Andrew Shomers has been out due to injury and gets squeezed out of the top 20, as does Army's Luke Weiland after taking a loss to North Carolina's Josh McClure.
