The National Girls High School Rankings for January 12, 2018 have been released, recognizing the top high school girl wrestlers in the nation. It is the second ranking of the 2017-18 season.

USA Wrestling, FloWrestling and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum have partnered to create national rankings for high school girls wrestlers.

For the first time, the National Girls High School Rankings has been expanded to 15 wrestlers in each of 14 weight classes. Previous rankings listed 10 athletes in every weight.

The ranking list indicates what the athlete’s previous ranking was for the October 2017 Preseason Rankings.

The release dates for the rest of the high school rankings have been finalized. The other rankings for 2017-18 are scheduled for release on January 31, February 21, March 14, April 11, May 23 and July 11.

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 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.

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
