Final 2017-18 National Girls High School Rankings

The National Girls High School Rankings for July 3 have been released. It is the seventh and final ranking of the 2017-18 season.

The National Wrestling Hall of Fame, USA Wrestling and FloWrestling have partnered to create the national rankings to recognize the top high school girl wrestlers in the nation.

There are some changes in the top-ranked wrestlers since the last ranking on April 25.

Macey Kilty of Wisconsin has moved up to 152 pounds, and takes over the No. 1 spot in her new weight class. She was No. 1 most of the year at 144 pounds, but was No. 2 at 144 in the April 25 ranking.

Other new No. 1 ranked wrestlers are Alexandria Liles of Texas at 132 pounds, who was the Texas and Central Region winner of the Hall of Fame’s Tricia Saunders High School Excellence Award in 2018, Tavi Heidelberg of California at 200 pounds and Gabi Holloway of Texas at 225 pounds. Liles was No. 1 at her weight class most of the past season, but had dropped to No. 2 in April. Heidelberg and Holloway are at No. 1 for the first time this year.

Tricia Saunders national winner Alleida Martinez remains the top-ranked wrestler at 112 pounds. Other Tricia Saunders award winners from 2018 who are ranked No. 1 are Jayden Laurent (Wisconsin and Midwest Region) at 144 pounds, Sydnee Kimber (Alaska) at 164 pounds and Kenya Sloan (Tennessee and Southeast Region) at 180 pounds.

The events which had the biggest impact on the rankings were the USA Wrestling Women’s National Championships in Irving, Texas in May, and the Women’s National Duals in Tulsa, Oklahoma in June. In addition, high school girls who participated in the U.S. Senior Open and other Senior-level events were also evaluated based upon their performances at that level. Other post-season events were also included in the evaluation.

The next ranking with be created after the U.S. Marines Junior and Cadet National Championships in Fargo, North Dakota in July. It will be the preseason ranking for 2018-19 and will not include graduated seniors.

The staffs from these three leading wrestling organizations are working together to strategically publish this ranking throughout the year. The girls high school ranking will appear on the websites of all three organizations, and be promoted through each of their different media platforms.

This ranking will evaluate all girls enrolled in grades 9-12, and include athletes from all 50 states. Starting next fall, there are 12 states which sponsor official girls state high school championships or have started that process, while many other states are also developing their girls high school program.

Coaches, parents and athletes are encouraged to continue providing information about specific athletes and their achievements throughout the year for the committee to consider. If they have information on specific girls who should be considered for ranking, please send it by email to
