NCAA WOMEN | Pre-Season Poll

Manheim, PA – On Monday, the National Wrestling Coaches Association announced the pre-season individual and tournament team rankings for the NCAA Women. This is the second season that the NWCA has sponsored a poll for the NCAA Women’s division. 

INDIVIDUAL RANKINGS

Freshmen are not included in the preseason polls. Of note, many athletes are coming off redshirt years.

With NCAA women competing in freestyle competition, it has been determined that results from sanctioned freestyle events such as USA Wrestling’s U23 Championships will be factored into the individual rankings throughout the season.
