KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Southern Oregon remains the leader in the second regular season NAIA Women’s Wrestling Coaches’ Top 20 Poll. Grand View (Iowa) moves up one spot into second place, Life (Ga.) moves two spots to third, Campbellsville (Ky.) drops a pair of places, and Texas Wesleyan joins the Top Five. Doane (Neb.) is back into the poll after one cycle receiving votes and Waldorf (Iowa) makes its first appearance in 2022.

Poll Methodology

➤ The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the five conferences.

➤ Two days prior to the national poll, each qualifying group rater submits the top six 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 20 individuals in each weight class is based on how each voter ranks the best individuals. An individual receives 20 points for each first place vote, 19 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

➤ Teams that receive only one point in the ballot are not considered “receiving votes.”
