Blair Academy (NJ) returns to the top of the latest NHSCA/USA TODAY Super 25 High School Wrestling Rankings

Blair Academy

There’s a new No. 1 in the USA TODAY/National High School Coaches Association Super 25 High School Wrestling Rankings.

Blair Academy (Blairstown, NJ) climbs to back into the top spot after defeating former No. 1 Wyoming Seminary (Kingston, PA) 35-20 on Sunday.  Blair began the season ranked No. 1 in our preseason Top 25, but dropped to No. 2 after Seminary won the season-opening Walsh Jesuit Ironman Tournament. SEM has held the No. 1 ranking over the last six weeks.

The two will get another shot at each other in the season-ending National Prep Wrestling Championships at Lehigh University at the end of February.

Also this coming Sunday, SEM will have a chance to rebound from the Blair loss when it hosts No. 5 Bergen Catholic (Oradell, NJ) in a dual meet.

The only change in this week’s rankings is Malvern Prep (Malvern, PA), whose only dual meet loss has been to Wyoming Seminary, returns to the rankings at No. 24. All of the other Top 25 teams held their spots this week.

Aside from the SEM/Bergen match, Thursday’s California showdown between No. 6 Buchanan (Clovis, CA) and No. 9 Clovis (Clovis, CA) will shape next week’s rankings.
