The Open Mat has released full NCAA Women’s Wrestling Rankings. Iowa is ranked #3 in both the Tournament and Team Dual Rankings.

The Hawks have twelve wrestlers ranked in the top seven in the country. Nanea Estrella (136) and Ella Schmit (143) are ranked #2 and Resse Larramendy (143) and Kylie Welker (170) are ranked #3. Iowa has twelve wrestlers ranked at eight weight classes.

Iowa does not have a wrestler ranked at 123 and 130. 

I still believe that Iowa is underrated individually and as a team.  The Hawks have a young team and will have the opportunities to prove it in competition.

It is great to be an Iowa Wrestling fan.
