InterMat has released their new rankings today after a big weekend of college wrestling. The Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational and numerous dual meets across the country changed the rankings a bit. Iowa is still ranked number one for both the tournament and dual meet rankings but their lead shrunk. In the November 22 InterMat rankings they had Iowa 17.5 points ahead of #2 Penn State (121-103.5). Now it is just a 5 point difference between Iowa and Penn State of 112-107.
The Hawks have nine wrestlers ranked in the top eight.
Compared to the November 22 rankings (1) Lee, (3) DeSanto, (2) Eierman, and (2) Kemerer all stayed the same. Murin went from 12 to 8, Young 6 to 8, Marinelli 2 to 1, Warner 3 to 7, and Cassioppi 3 to 6. Myles Wilson is at 28 and Nelson Brands dropped out the rankings at 184.
Iowa is back on the mat next at the Rokfin Duals on December 20-21 in Destin, Florida.
