Sailor Representation in Pre-Season Rankings
The first round of pre-season rankings have been released, and Sailor wrestlers are well represented. According to the first set of rankings released by IA Wrestle on November 10th, returning district qualifier Gavin Reed will start the season as the 11th ranked wrestler at 113 pounds. Joining Gavin in the rankings is returning state qualifier Sam Hackett. Sam will start the season ranked 7th at 132 pounds.
Freshman Max Magayna also continues to collect accolades. After wrapping up a stellar youth career, Max will enter the season as IA Wrestle's top ranked pound for pound Freshman in the state. In addition, Max is also receiving national recognition. The first poll from the Open Mat has Max listed as the 14th ranked pound for pound Freshman in the entire country, and the top ranked freshman at 160 pounds.
Expectations for this group have never been higher. They are ready to get out on the mat and back up these rankings. Hopefully in a few weeks, a few of their teammates will be joining them in the rankings. Exciting times are ahead for Columbus wrestling.
