USA Wrestling, FloWrestling and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum have partnered to create its preseason national rankings for high school girls wrestlers for the 2017-18 season.

The staffs from these three leading wrestling organizations are working together to strategically publish this ranking throughout the year. The girls high school ranking will appear on the websites of all three organizations, and be promoted through each of their different media platforms.

This new program was launched this summer, when a final National Girls High School ranking was released for the 2016-17 year.

This ranking will evaluate all girls enrolled in grades 9-12, and include athletes from all 50 states. There are six states which sponsor official girls state high school championships, while many other states are also developing their girls high school program.

The preseason ranking evaluates success from the summer USA Wrestling schedule and other post-season competitions, where top high school girls from across the nation face each other.

The ranking list will indicate what the athlete’s previous ranking was in July’s final 2016-17 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, please send it by email to
