Cleveland Wrestlers Maintain Top Spot In State Wrestling Poll

Monday, December 11, 2017

The Cleveland Blue Raider wrestling team is still #1 in the latest state coaches poll.   Cleveland won their own dual tournament this weekend.  McCallie is second and Baylor is fifth followed by Bradley in sixth.  

Now in its 26th year, The Poll is primarily a measure of dual meet strength with some consideration to individual tournament strength.

   Votes are cast by a state-wide panel of high school wrestling coaches and are based on a maximum Power Ranking of 100%.
