2022-23 National Girls High School Rankings


USA Wrestling, FloWrestling and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum have published its July 2023 rankings for high school girls wrestlers for the 2022-23 season. This national ranking evaluates all girls enrolled in grades 8-12, and athletes from all 50 states are eligible for selection. This is the final ranking of the 2022-23 season, and still includes the high school seniors from the year who have graduated. The next ranking will come in the fall of 2023, with all of the graduated seniors taken out.

This ranking is timed just prior to the 2023 USMC Junior/16U Nationals in Fargo, N.D. which will begin next week. The girls competition, which is loaded with ranked wrestlers and up-and-coming talents, will be held July 15-16 and broadcast live on FloWrestling. There are three top-ranked wrestlers who are different in July: Everest Leydecker of Arizona (122), Valerie Hamilton of Illinois (138) and Catherine Dutton of Missouri (225).

Graduated seniors who were No. 1 in the final ranking include Kiely Tabaldo of California (112), Shelby Moore of Washington (127), Maddie Kubicki of Missouri (144), Destiny Rodriguez of Oregon (152) and Catherine Dutton of Missouri (225). No. 1 athletes who completed their junior year this season were Audrey Jimenez of Arizona (106), Karlee Brooks of Arizona (117), Hayle Jaffe of Pennsylvania (132), Valerie Hamilton of Illinois (138), Sabrina Nauss of Michigan (180) and Savannah Isaac of Ohio (200). Only one sophomore during the 2022-23 season is at No. 1, Piper Fowler of Tennessee (164). The two freshmen who finished the season at No. 1 are Morgan Turner of Illinois (100) and Everest Leydecker of Arizona (122).

There were some slight changes in the Pound-For-Pound (P-4-P) rankings. The top five remained the same, with Audrey Jimenez of Arizona continuing as the No. 1 P-4-P wrestler in the nation. There were three new athletes added to the P-4-P rankings, Eduarda Rodrigues of California (No. 21), Alivia White of Washington (No. 24) and Carley Ceshker of Wisconsin (No. 25).

The most impactful event leading up to the final ranking was the USA Wrestling Junior National Duals in Tulsa, Okla. in June, which had many dozens of nationally ranked wrestlers on the mats. The USA Wrestling Regionals were also a series of events that featured top stars. A number of other large spring and early summer tournaments were also included in the review of athletes.

Coaches, parents and athletes are encouraged to provide information about specific athletes and their achievements throughout the year for the committee to consider. If they have information on specific girls who should be considered for ranking or updates on their achievements, please send it by email to girlsrankings@usawrestling.org.

The quality of these rankings continue to improve as people choose to share updated information.
