NorCal Wrestling Team Rankings-Feb. 13

NorCal Wrestling Team Rankings

Gilroy Still Holds The Top Spot By More Than 25 Points, But It’s Vacaville That Suits Up The Most Ranked Wrestlers Heading Into Sections •

All year, SportStars will align the best of each weight class, and the top teams in Northern California into lists of the 15 best.

This year, our team rankings are calculated by the cumulative “power points” of each ranked wrestler, with 15 points awarded to the top wrestler in each weight and one point given to the wrestler at No. 15. Only one wrestler can earn “power points” in each bracket, but we will rank multiple wrestlers from the same team, if necessary.

These rankings go hand-in-hand with our weight-by-weight wrestler rankings.

Wrestling Team Rankings 

1. (1) Gilroy (11 ranked, 143 power points (-9))

NorCal Wrestling Rankings, Wrestling Team RankingsCCS — A hole at 113 will hurt Gilroy in CIF scoring, but the Mustangs are bound for another CCS championship and could easily send 12 wrestlers to state

2. (2) Vacaville (13-115 (+6))

SJS — The Bulldogs now sport more ranked NorCal wrestlers than Gilroy, and should thrill SJS wrestling fans with a dominant performance at the Masters Championships. A massive battle with Oakdale looms.

3. (3) Oakdale (9-101 (+10))

SJS — Oakdale looks more and more like a serious challenger to Vacaville’s throne. The Mustangs have favorable positions in SJS brackets and can steal the Masters from Vacaville by winning some key weight classes. Oakdale has five wrestlers in the top two in NorCal.

4. (4) De La Salle-Concord (9-83 (-3))

NCS — The Spartans should do well in the NCS, but stiff competition across the 14 weight classes could thin De La Salle’s depth before the CIF tourney even begins.

5. (5) Del Oro-Loomis (7-75 (-1))

SJS – Eli Blake can bring his team a little more prestige with an SJS Masters title, but he will have to overcome the adversity that left him runner-up at Div. I last week.

THE NEXT 10

6. (6) Pitman-Turlock (7-64)

7. (8) Sutter (5-48)

8. (7) Franklin-Elk Grove (5-47)

    Evergreen Valley High School placed 3rd at Overfelt. Silver Creek placed 4th and San Benito placed 5th. Seven of our wrestlers medaled there as well. The reason I mention that is because you mentioned that Silver Creek had 7 wrestlers had medaled.

    Have you heard what Evergreen Valley Cougars been accomplishing in the CCS? They are seeded #2 behind Gilroy, and defeated Silver Creek on their dual match 48-30 in January 30. Its time to do your research about Evergreen Valley.

      Ray & Rollie,
      Thanks for the feedback. Evergreen Valley is on the bubble of being ranked in the top 20, with six ranked wrestlers for 29 points. Our rankings award “power points” for for kids listed higher, imagining the way they would score in a mythical NorCal championship tournament. Silver Creek made the cut despite having just five ranked wrestlers because three of those wrestlers are ranked eighth or higher in their weight class. We do acknowledge that one Evergreen is one of NorCal’s deeper teams, and they could easily pop back into the Top 20 when we release our next rankings on Feb. 9.
