Quick update. Just wrapping up finals, rankings will be completed this weekend, right in time for the season.
I agree P4P should not be touched. Class ranks need to reflect current wrestlers that are active. No one is advocating for removing people every week for a injury lol what I think we are saying if you go a period of time say 3 to 4 weeks with no activity then a removal or a drop in ranking is merited. As far as Sung or Adams no one is trying to take anything away from those to phenomenal wrestlers but with no activity yet I believe once again Class should reflect what is happening currently and is relevant to this moment in time.
So with that P4P and I think Open should reflect our best wrestlers. Should the time come when they are verified to be out for the entire season then removal from Open ranks seems fitting while leaving P4P as is.
My comment was not meant to address anything you wrote about pound for pound. I was thinking about the HS season.
Sung is out with a knee injury and it appears Adam's is out due to being academically ineligible. Until when and if if they return they should be removed from rankings till such time.
Guilford is listed as LL in the tournament team rankings. They are M
Sung tore something in his knee hope he gets better but i would cast some doubt on returning this year. Hopefully he rests up and heads off to college no need to risk injury coming back to early when his ride to Lehigh is on the line.
Sung is recovering from surgery and will likely be back in late January or early February. Heard he'll be wrestling for Lehigh. Congrats.
I heard Sung is injured, not sure how bad.
I heard Adams has been ruled academically ineligible this season.
I have noticed two wrestlers on the P4P with no activity so far this early season: a) Tyler Sung, & b) Hunter Adams. Any status update on these two (or have I missed something)?
Lots of corrections needed! Kids who cut down hard for a certain weight last year aren’t going to be at the same weight this year. So many kids at wrong weights Across the board!
Class S and M has been filled in. Ranking errors such as the one noted above will be corrected soon
Agree that a ton of these kids will be moving around in weight class and things won't settle until after the 2 pound allowance. However, the pre-season ranking for 106 is a bit off for Class S. Being from the ECC part of CT I know that Doran finished 4th in M's and also beat Chapman, Hines and Christie last year who currently are ranked higher.
Definitely don’t plan on making weight changes until at LEAST the first week of competition. The next update will be Wednesday. Where I will fill in all the holes and confirm all teams are in the right division. I know I had a member tell me RHAM is in M’s which needs to be fixed! I have 3 guys helping this year, so rankings should be much more accurate and updated more frequent. Thanks for your patience everyone.
Correct stall, the 18th will show 106,113,120,126,ect , then after Christmas will bring a whole other change. I know a bunch of kids who will be wrestling up a weight until the 2 pound allowance, and then come down as you’re aware. I was just stating kind of a few weights off the top of my head from knowing the kids and where they plan on going . Excited for another fun year guys! Let’s kick it off right.
I wouldn’t put too much into these initial rankings. Until the first few events come in, a better understanding of where some wrestlers end up based on changes in weight would be justified. Like Sweep the Leg! indicated, Jack Ryan is much bigger than last year, thus will not be at the same weight as last year. These initial rankings are just where the returning ranked kids remain. I would expect big changes after the 18th and the first set of weekend tournaments...
Lots of updates needed. Odell is 113, knight is 120, Rapuano 113, currier I believe is 120 minimum most likely 126, I believe Thompson is 113 but that can be confirmed soon.thats just what I saw real quick. Jack Ryan is much bigger this year so prob 132.
Class S Nick Glynn from HK placed 6th at 145 last year as a freshman. He is now a sophomore and should be on the 145 rankings. Matt Carson is a junior at 182 in class s.
