Thread: Best Wrestling in the Nation

  1. #1

    Default Best Wrestling in the Nation

    What state now has the best high school wrestling in the country? Back when I was wrestling 10 years ago everybody said Pennsylvania. Any stats on the number of college AA's from each state where they went to high school?

    It's pretty dead even between PA and Ohio, Ohio had 9 AA this year, PA had 8.

    Cali, PA,Ohio are back and forth every year, NY and Nj have there years as well. But the 1st 3 are the cream of the crop and that shouldn't change anytime soon

    California is only "good" because of their huge population... per capita, they are not nearly as impressive

    Hold on...you got to put Illinois in the mix as well. Last year they dominated the off season events in Fargo with 3 of the 4 titles. and they were good the year before as well. Definetley a top 5 state...
