USA Wrestling, FloWrestling and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum have partnered for three seasons to create the national rankings for high school girls wrestlers.
This first-ever National Girls High School Team Rankings will be for the 2019-20 season were released this week. Miyamura High School was ranked #23 in the nation. Miyamura won the state’s first-ever Girls Wrestling Team Championship this past February. Miyamura junior Yele Aycock took top honors in the 132 pound division at the state meet. Other Miyamura state placers included Lorianna Piestewa (2nd at 100), Nancy Rodriguez (2nd at 160), Shandiin Largo (2nd at 182), Auriana Lehner (4th at 106). Aycock is ranked 20th nationally in the 132 pound classification.
“It is very humbling to see our team recognized on this level,” said Miyamura wrestling coach Nate Sellers. “It is exciting to see what the future holds for these young ladies as they continue to put in the work that is required to be successful.”
The ranking is heavily influenced by the results of the girls state high school competitions held across the nation over the last two months. Another factor considered by the committee is the national individual rankings, and teams which have athletes recognized nationally. Dual meet records were not a major factor for this selection.
