NCAA announces first coaches panel rankings
INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA released Friday the first of four coaches’ panel rankings for the 2016-17 wrestling season. The final rankings will be one of the tools used as part of the selection process to determine the qualifiers for the 2016 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. This year’s event is March 16-18 at the Scott Trade Center in St. Louis, Missouri . For more information and to purchase tickets for the championship, visit NCAA.com/Wrestling.
Wrestlers in each weight class will be measured by winning percentage, rating percentage index (RPI) and coaches’ rankings to earn spots in their qualifying tournaments for the 2017 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. The coaches’ rankings are compiled by a vote of coaches representing each qualifying tournament. For ranking purposes, coaches may only consider a wrestler that has been designated as a starter at a respective weight class. In order to be eligible for the rankings, wrestlers must have participated in at least five matches against Division I opponents in the weight class and have wrestled within the last 30 days.
