2022 Mat Classic Brackets
The Mat Classic on February 19-20 brought a close to the end of the 2021-22 high school wrestling season. So nice to be able to complete the season and have a state championship after the Covid issues the past two years. Many wrestlers were able to fulfill their goals/dreams this weekend and many more came up short. There can only be one winner per bracket so the most important thing to to wrestle to your abilities, leave nothing on the mat and then whatever happens…happens.
All the separate divisions (B,1A,2A, etc) have been decided at the Mat Classic so the divisional rankings are done for the year but that does leave one final ranking for the All-Class division. We have compiled the results and come up with a final All-Class rankings of all the wrestlers in one pool. Lots of great wrestlers in the group and not always easy to decide on an order. None the less, we have consulted with all the rankers for input on the rankings and here they are for the year. Enjoy!
The high school season for wrestlers culminates with the Mat Classic in Tacoma on Friday and Saturday of this week. For some wrestlers their best hopes will be fulfilled this weekend while others will have dreams crushed. Just the nature of the beast. The objective is to do your very best and leave no regrets on the match. It is the chance for a few overlooked wrestlers to have a breakthrough state tournament and finish higher than anyone had them ranked. It happens every year and every wrestler, except the top ranked one, should be looking to finish above their ranking. Don’t worry about where you are ranked, instead focus on exceeding that. Be ready, physically and mentally to battle for three straight weeks with little room for error.
This year has been a little bit of a trying season for getting published results, cancelled tournaments, bringing on new rankers, etc. The wrestling community has persevered and here they are standing up in the face of the Covid adversity and looking forward to the post-season after last years season was cancelled. Work hard, stay safe and follow the rules so we can take this season to the conclusion at the Mat Classic that it deserves. My hat is off to all the wrestlers, coaches, fans, officials, managers, etc that allow this great sport to continue. LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE!
Brackets are located on the High School Page. The Rankings Page link is at the top of this page along with a link to the High School Page for 2021-22. Remember to have tournament directors email the completed brackets of their tournaments to be posted on the site and to be reviewed for ranking changes. Also remember to email any input on rankings to me at Info@Washingtonwrestlingreport.net so I can analyze them and then forward them to all the pertinent rankers for review on a class by class basis.
Once the high school season gets underway the brackets and rankings will being updated regularly. As always, feel free to comment on the rankings on the message board as the rankers do read those and use the information in addition to what they are able to review from the data on the WWR web site.
To see quick update of which rankings have been updated simply go to the “Categories” drop down arrow in the upper right hand of the screen right over the ads on the right. Click the arrow and chose “Rankings” and it will lists ALL the rankings by most recent date. Try it and let me know what you think on the message board.
Hard to believe but it seems that not everyone in wrestling is aware of this site and the effort we make as a group to get the information in one central location for all the wrestling fans to see. We need folks to write down my email address (email@example.com) and make sure they hand it to the tournament directors at ALL tournaments and ask them to email the completed brackets to us for posting. The more people we have talking to the administrators that have the data, the more results we will see on the site. Keep the requests going so we can all see what’s happening!
