Section 9 Preseason Rankings

S9sitelogoLet’s get the discussions going!!!  Keep in mind that these are preseason rankings.  These rankings are not based solely on past performance.  Previous results are clearly a huge factor but other factors, some subjective and some objective, were considered.  I realize that weight classes may be off, especially at the very beginning of the season.  If you don’t like your ranking, or if you think you were over-looked, prove me wrong….on the mat!!!  That’s enough chit-chat…here they are!

    Mike, I’m glad you are doing the rankings again. Thanks. I hope you update often throughout the season. Keep in mind people – the rankings aren’t official and everyone is entitled to their opinion.

      Thank you and you are correct…rankings are for discussion…what truly matters is determined on the mat, not in a forum of a website!

    Are any rankings ever official?? Rankings and seeding for a tournament are two different things. Great job on these if you ask me, also d2 looks much improved from 5-10 years ago

    • Mike Carey says:

      Very good point and many people do not distinguish between the two. Seeding a tournament is based solely on past performance, it determines where wrestlers should be bracketed at the beginning of a tournament. Rankings, on the other hand, are basically a person’s (or group of people) opinion on where the wrestlers would finish at the end of a tournament. And yes, D2 is definitely improving in S9…great to see! There are some sections in NYS where D2 is actually as strong or stronger than D1!
