KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Grand View (Iowa) takes over the top spot in the latest Yes! Athletics NAIA Women’s Wrestling Coaches’ Top 20 Poll. Life (Ga.) also moves up one play while former top ranked Southern Oregon sits third. Cumberlands (Ky.) leaps four spots into the Top Five while Menlo (Calif.) remains fifth.

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.”
