Sophomore Nathan Tomasello of Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy (OH) finishes No. 1 in the nation after an undefeated 2010-2011 season.* Nathan?s key win came in the finals of the Walsh Ironman Tournament in December, riding out No. 3 Darian Cruz in the ultimate tiebreak period to help solidify himself as the top 103 pounder in the nation.

Joey McKenna, Blair Academy?s phenom freshman, kept improving each month, climbing up the rankings to finish the season with the No. 2 ranking.* Pinning his way through the National Prep Tournament, expect McKenna to be back next year with the confidence he can beat anyone.

Darian Cruz had high expectations after winning the preseason Super 32 tournament in October, taking down Nathan Tomasello in yet another close battle between the two this year.* The Super 32, an open preseason tournament, didn?t quite have the implications of the in-season battle between Tomasello, but would put Darian Cruz in the spotlight to start the season.* Cruz, the only wrestler in the Top 15 not to win an individual state championship, still grabs the No. 3 rank this season as we fully expect Cruz to come back next season with some extra motivation.
