The first installment of the SSN Shore Conference Individual Wrestling Weight Class Rankings is here.

As always, the first set is labor intensive as we combed through results and prior advancement and checked weight classes. Given that we’re just 10 days into the season there is going to be a lot of movement as wrestlers move weight classes and several more wrestlers make their season debuts.

Before you read and react, these are the criteria used here:

1-Wrestlers are ranked at the lowest weight they have competed at, EXCEPT in the case of two ranked wrestlers from the same team. In that instance, we will use our discretion.

2-Prior advancement is weighted heavily for this first ranking

3-For wrestlers who have not yet competed this season, the weight entered by their coaches on is used.

4-Head-to-head wins play a major role

Any corrections, i.e. new weight class or missed head-to-head can be sent to

And a reminder, these rankings are for fun and do not influence any postseason seeding.
