2022-23 National Girls High School Rankings

164 pounds

USA Wrestling, FloWrestling and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum has published its January 2023 rankings for high school girls wrestlers for the 2022-23 season. This national ranking evaluates all girls enrolled in grades 8-12, and athletes from all 50 states are eligible for selection.

This ranking leaned heavily on the scholastic season, where athletes have been competing for their high school programs. There are a number of major in-season events where teams from a number of states have participated including the FIGHT tournament in Ohio, the Dan Gable Donnybrook in Iowa, the Women’s West Coast Tournament of Champions in California, the Wonder Woman in Missouri, the Holy Angels in North Carolina and many others. 

Some of the traditionally strong high school boys tournaments are now having strong girls divisions, including the Reno Tournament of Champions in Nevada, the Beast of the East in Delaware, the Powerade in Pennsylvania and others. So many strong holiday tournaments were held in numerous states. 

The first of the annual state high school championships was held in Alaska in December. 

In the January rankings, there were only two new No. 1 athletes since the November selections: Emily Sindoni of New York (132) and Mishell Rebisch of Michigan (152)

Destiny Rodriguez of Oregon, who was No. 1 at 152 last ranking, moved up to 164 pounds, and is now No. 1 at that weight class.

Repeating in the No. 1 positions are Gabriella Gomez of Illinois (100), Audrey Jimenez of Arizona (105), Alex Szkotnicki of Maryland (112), Elena Ivaldi of California (117), Everest Leydecker of Arizona (122), Shelby Moore of Washington (127), Valerie Hamilton of Illinois (138), Maddie Kubicki of Missouri (144), Sabrina Nauss of Michigan (180), Savannah Isaac of Ohio (200) and Kiera Ganey of Illinois (225).

There were only minimal changes in the Pound-For-Pound (P-4-P) rankings. The two new athletes in the P4P rankings are No. 24 Mishell Rebisch of Michigan and No. 25 Haley Ward of Missouri.

The next National Girls High School Ranking will be in February, after a number of state championships have been held.

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.
