Courtesy of the NAIA – Link
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Grand View (Iowa) now leads the NAIA Men’s Wrestling Coaches’ Top 20 Poll for the seventh straight rankings period this year. With the rest of the Top Five remaining the same, the biggest movement comes from Morningside (Iowa) and Cumberlands (Ky.) each leaping four spots. The Cascade and Mid-South Conferences lead the way with five institutions each represented.
➤The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the eight conferences.
➤Two days prior to the national poll, each qualifying group rater submits the top 10 individuals from each weight class in his conference into the system. Only wrestlers listed on a conference ballot are considered for the national ballot.
➤The top 25 individuals in each weight class is based on how each voter ranks the best individuals. An individual receives 25 points for each first place vote, 24 for second place and so on through the list. This same point system is used to determine the team ranking.
➤The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-rating is considered a low rating) is removed and the team’s ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for every ballot
