2022-23 National Girls High School Rankings

144 pounds

USA Wrestling, FloWrestling and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum have published its May 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 reflects the results of the major post-season competitions held since the end of the regular high school season.

Two major USA Wrestling events held considerable weight, the USA Wrestling Women’s National Championships in Spokane, Wash. in early April, as well as the Girls National High School Recruiting Showcase in Las Vegas, Nev. in late April. Another big event that had impact was the NHSCA Nationals in Virginia Beach, Va., in late March.

There was considerable change in all of the weight classes due to the final results of these important competitions. In fact, there are seven new No. 1 ranked athletes in May: Kiely Tabaldo of California (112), Karlee Brooks of Arizona (117), Virginia Foard of Virginia (122), Hayle Jaffe of Pennsylvania (132), Lilly Luft of Iowa (138), Piper Fowler of Tennessee (164) and Ciara Monger of Colorado (225).

Shelby Moore of Washington, who was No. 1 at 122 last ranking, has moved up to 127 pounds, where she is ranked No. 1. The other top ranked wrestlers who repeated at No. 1 were Morgan Turner of Illinois (100), Audrey Jimenez of Arizona (106), Maddie Kubicki of Missouri (144), Destiny Rodriguez of Oregon (152), Sabrina Nauss of Michigan (180) and Savannah Isaac of Ohio (200).

The Pound-For-Pound (P-4-P) rankings also saw a major overhaul. The top five ranked wrestlers were unchanged, with Audrey Jimenez of Arizona continuing as the No. 1 P-4-P wrestler in the nation. However, there were nine new athletes added to the P-4-P in May: No. 11 Virginia Foard of Virginia, No. 13 Piper Fowler of Tennessee, No. 14 Rose Cassioppi of Illinois, No. 15 Haylie Jaffe of Pennsylvania, No. 17 Lilly Luft of Iowa, No. 20 Ciara Monger of Colorado, No. 23 Zao Estrada of South Carolina, No. 24 Rianne Murphy of Indiana and No. 25 May Prado of Georgia.

The final National Girls High School Ranking for the 2022-23 season will be published in late June or early July, prior to the annual USA Wrestling Junior/16U Nationals in Fargo, N.D. in mid-July.

The most impactful event prior to the final ranking will be the USA Wrestling Junior National Duals in Tulsa, Okla. in late June. The committee will do a deep dive into all of the major post-season events leading up to the publication date of the final ranking.

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.
