No. 1 Blair Academy (Blairstown, NJ) put itself in perfect position to defend its USA TODAY/National High School Coaches Association Super 25 national championship by advancing all 14 wrestlers to this weekend’s Prep Nationals at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The Bucs crowned 12 champs last weekend, plus had two runner-ups at the regional qualifier that was held at Blair.

The Bucs will be challenged this weekend by No. 6 Malvern Prep (Malvern, PA) and No. 9 Wyoming Seminary (Kingston, PA). Both teams qualified all 14 wrestlers at last week’s Pennsylvania regional qualifier. Wyoming Seminary had 8 champs with six runner-ups, while Malvern Prep crowned five champs with six runner-ups.

The top twenty teams in last week’s rankings held their spots in the latest rankings. No. 21 Pomona (Arvada, CO), No. 22 Pueblo County (Pueblo, CO), No. 23 Southeast Polk (Pleasant Hill, IA) and Lockport Township (Lockport, IL) all moved-up one spot this week.

New to the poll is Montini Catholic (Lombard, IL) at No. 25
