Post-Fargo high school grade rankings released

The summer wrestling period had three major events -- AAU Scholastic Duals at Disney, Junior National Duals, and Cadet and Junior National Championships that were just held in Fargo, North Dakota -- in which large numbers of nationally ranked wrestlers were participants. These grade rankings of early August "react" and "reflect" what has happened in these tournaments, as well as other events in the period.

The number No. 1-ranked wrestlers remain unchanged in the senior, junior, sophomore and freshman rankings. Anthony Valencia (St. John Bosco, Calif.) is the nation's top prospect in the senior class, and will be competing in Croatia this week at the FILA Junior World Championships. Mark Hall (Apple Valley, Minn.), who won a FILA Cadet freestyle world title in July, stays atop the junior rankings. Fellow FILA Cadet freestyle World champion Spencer Lee (Franklin Regional, Pa.) anchors the sophomore class rankings. Lastly, the freshman class anchor remains FILA Cadet World Championships participant Cade Olivas (St. John Bosco, Calif.).

Two wrestlers moved up 20-plus spots into the top 30 for the senior rankings: Josh Maruca (Franklin Regional, Pa.), third in Junior freestyle at 145 pounds and the Outstanding Wrestler at the Disney Duals; and Chaz Tucker (Blair Academy, N.J.), Junior freestyle runner-up at 126 pounds. In the sophomore rankings, a pair of wrestlers moved up 20-plus spots into the top 20: Cadet National double runner-up Kamal Bey (Oak Park River Forest, Ill.) and Junior freestyle 126 pound champion Mitchell McKee (St. Michael-Albertville, Minn.).

InterMat Platinum is required to view all the rankings. InterMat ranks the top 100 seniors, top 50 juniors, top 50 sophomores, top 25 freshmen, and top 15 junior high wrestlers.
