There is going to be some great wrestling this weekend, as the nation’s best young women and girls come together for a major USA Wrestling competition at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City.

The events on tap include:
• U.S. Marine Corps Girls Folkstyle Nationals
• U23 World Team Trials
• Junior Girls Folkstyle Duals

In reviewing the list of those who registered online, as many as 81 nationally ranked high school girls have signed up. There could be more who decide to walk up and register on site. These athletes are spread across three different tournaments, the Junior Folkstyle Nationals (grades 9-12), the Cadet Folkstyle Nationals (Ages 15-16) and the U23 World Team Trials (ages 18-23). Some are competing in more than one tournament.

Based upon this strong turnout, we are certain to see many ranked wrestlers competing against each other, as well as many other talented athletes who are not yet ranked. This weekend’s results will be important in the next National Girls High School Rankings, which will be published on April 11.

We list these ranked wrestlers, along with the tournament and weight class where they have signed up. This could change, as more athletes could enter, plus athletes could change weight classes and tournaments.

It is expected to be the most competitive event held yet, with over 1,000 athletes entered in the different competitions at all age levels.

Athletes who have not registered on line can still register on site. See the official website for more information on the schedule, including onsite registration, at:

FloWrestling will broadcast the action in Oklahoma City this weekend.
