Weak. Now wrestling gives out participation medals? Yeah we recognize the effort and hard work, since they were 5! Earn the status not guess who woulda placed.Sometimes bad things happen and you dont get the reward-no different than an injury that so many wrestlers have dealt with that kept them from the show. Pitiful culture today

Shakur Rasheed not even being listed as an honorable mention shows just how dumb you guys are. Awful and I haven'y even looked at any others.

They just used the NCAA seeding.
First Team AA's were the top 8 seeds; Second Team AA's were the 9-12 seeds; and the Honorable Mention AA's were the 13-16 seeds
Shakur was seeded 21.
