With three weeks remaining in the 2016-17 high school wrestling season, No. 1 Blair Academy (Blairstown, NJ) has its second straight USA TODAY/National High School Coaches Association Super 25 national title well within its sights.  The final test will be at the National Prep Wrestling Championship February 24-25th at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  Blair will be going after its 35th national team title in the last 36 years.

 

Standing in the way of the national title will be No. 6 Malvern Prep (Malvern, PA) and No. 9 Wyoming Seminary (Kingston, PA).  Blair’s only dual loss this year came against Wyoming Seminary back in January.

 

Nazareth (Nazareth, PA) continues to climb in the latest rankings. The Blue Eagles jump two spots to No. 8 after beating former No. 8 Bethlehem Catholic (Bethlehem, PA) for the Pennsylvania Class AAA dual championship.  The match was the rubber-match between the two schools that had split their first two matches this season.  Nazareth captured the state title on criteria by winning eight of the 14 weights. Bethlehem Catholic falls to No. 10.

 

No. 3 St. Edward (Lakewood, OH) strengthened its position in the rankings by winning its second straight Ohio Division I Dual Team Championship last weekend.  St. Ed’s beat Perry (Massillon, OH) in the championship match.  Perry, which was honorable mention last week, flies into this week’s rankings at No. 14, as they beat then No. 14 Elyria (Elyria, OH) in the semifinals.

 

No. 5 Graham (St. Paris, OH) captured its fifth straight Division II title.

 

No. 11 Bergen Catholic (Oradell, NJ) won its sixth straight state team title last weekend.  The Crusaders beat St. Augustine (Richland, NJ) for the Non-Public Group A championship.

 

No. 13 Tuttle (Tuttle, OK) captured its eight straight Oklahoma 4A dual title.  The title was Tuttle’s 14th overall.  No. 18 Sand Springs won Oklahoma’s 6A team title.
