Take a peak at the 152s returning in 2021-2022

2021-2022 Previews

Over the next several months, we will begin to release preview information as we ramp up to the start of another school year and another season of GHSA Wrestling.  

First up will be weight class previews, we will release one weight class per day (hopefully), starting at 106.  We will list and rank the top 15 returning wrestlers from each classification at each weight.  Obviously, many of these wrestlers will be changing weight classes for the upcoming season, but this should give you an idea of who all should be returning this season.  Information on a wrestlers grade level was taken from whatever was listed in Trackwrestling, we are sure that there may be some errors, and we apologize in advance.  We are also unaware of any transfers at this time, so it is entirely possible that wrestlers could have moved on to another school.  June 21st-July 16th

Towards the end of July we will begin our Area/Region previews.  We will cover four Areas/Regions in a classification each day, breaking down the favorites to advance to the state duals.  This set of previews will end with our projected State Duals Brackets, assuming the GHSA releases this information sometime in July.  July 19th-August 13th

Hope you enjoy the previews!!
