PRESEASON STATE RANKINGS – Part 4 of 5

 

New rankings will be released in batches starting November 13 (106, 113, and 120) to the end of the week. Wrestlers will be placed at their projected weights using feedback from over 100+ coaches – so please hold off on inquiring “where is …?” until the full rankings are provided. Starting December, I will try to update the rankings every week (Thursday) so expect plenty of changes as the season wears on, head to head results flood in, and competitors begin to settle.

 

The California Wrestler (www.thecaliforniawrestler.com) prides in providing the most comprehensive and transparent rankings in the country – the underlying process has been time-tested and proven over many years. For those who argue that “rankings don’t matter” we’d be the first to agree. However, sports and rankings often go hand-in-hand so it’s important to have a centralized, data-driven resource that accurately tracks the top individuals. It may not be a perfect system but it’s a good, consistent one – covering a state that has 27,000 wrestlers from 900 wrestling programs.

 

Preseason rankings criteria will generally bias returning state medalists/qualifiers with the understanding that the various sections vary in strength and depth (ie, placing at the previous year’s Masters event does not guarantee higher ranking over a competitor who did not place in a different, stronger section). Offseason results will also be considered but again, a win over a competitor at a preseason event does not guarantee a higher ranking.

 

For the rest of the year, rankings criteria will be consistent with those applied at most tournament seeding meetings – among them, (1) head-to-head results; (2) returning state medalist or qualifier; (3) returning section medalist; (4) common opponents; (5) tournament strength/quality. Another important component will be body of season work as discretion must be made when conflicting results occur (ie, Wrestler A beats Wrestler B, Wrestler B beats Wrestler C, but Wrestler C beats Wrestler A).

 

There is a predictive nature to these rankings – over the past five years, using the final rankings released prior to the state meet, over 90% of eventual placers were ranked in the top 12 and 97% were ranked in the top 16. So if you’re on the list, you’re obviously doing something right!

 

I welcome all feedback, questions, or corrections at castateranker@gmail.com.
