Preseason State Rankings

I don’t generally like rankings. Let’s face it, the only way to know who’s number one is by having the girls wrestle. But, it is also very hard to deny rankings are fun even if they do make life-long friends season-long enemies. So here are the preseason CIF rankings based on last year’s state championship tournament (SoCal girls in red).

Carlson vs. Miller: Wrestle-off for a Spot on 2014 World Team

Veronica Carlson and Randi Miller will be facing each other in a special wrestle-off to decide who will take the 69 kg spot on the 2014 U.S. World Team. Miller was unable to compete at the U.S. Trials due to an injury but she did win the U.S. Open this year. Carlson, on the other hand won the U.S. Trials at the contended weight. The wrestle-off will be a best-of-3 series. Neither a date nor a location have been announced for the matches, as of yet.

This wrestle-off is a result of Miller’s request to the Women’s Sport Committee for delay of trial and which the committee approved. Click here to read original article
