Wrestlers Just Outside Top Ten

The Mountaineer wrestling team is ranked 11th in the latest Intermat wrestling poll.

West Virginia also continues to be well represented in the individual rankings. Six Mountaineers are rated in the top twenty, led by freshman Greg Jones, who is third in the nation in the 174 pound weight class.

WVU's ranked wrestlers,including their weight class and ranking, are:

Shane Cunanan (141-15)
Billy Smith (149-20)
Joe Carr (157-10)
Tom McMath (165-6)
Greg Jones (174-3)
Ryan Kehler (HWT-20)

WVU remains the highest rated Eastern Wrestling League squad in the Top 25. Other league opponents that are ranked include Edinboro at 17, Lock Haven at 19 and Pitt at 23. Cleveland State is among the others receiving votes.

All four of the EWL's Top 25 teams are still undefeated in league matches, which means there will be plenty of fireworks and showdowns for top rankings in February. The Mountaineers face Lock Haven on Friday, February 8 at the WVU Coliseum.
