2011 UP Wrestling Rankings

Postby shrek1 » Fri Oct 29, 2010 1:35 pm

It's that time of year again. My annual team rankings for UP teams. Looks like I was pretty close last year based on the UP Finals scores.

1. Escanaba - This will be a close one with Iron Mountain again this season, but I think Esky pulls it off in 2011.
2. Iron Mountain - They don't re-build, they reload.
3. Ishpeming / WW - The WW portion of this co-op team seems to be coming on strong.
4. Marquette - Lots of work over the summer, saw a couple guys at a 28 day intensive camp, should pay off.
5. Gladstone - Always bring in a talented freshman class from their youth program, this year is no exception.
6. Menominee - Looked impressive last season with their new coach, should be solid.
7. Munising - Always in the mix, solid freshman group coming up.
8. Kingsford - New coach this season, don't know what to expect.
9. St. Ignace - Phenomenal freshman class last year. If they can build around that core, they will surprise alot of teams.
10. Manistique - Nearly won the district last season, we'll see how they look moving up to D3 this season.
11. Newberry - Good numbers last year, seem to be improving each season.
12. Sault - Del Craven back at the helm, expect the unexpected.
13. Rudyard - Graduated one heck of senior class.
14. WIC - Always a scrappy team from the west end.
15. Negaunee - Big group of young grapplers last season. Should pay dividends this year.
16. Gwinn - Football team is improving, does that hold true for the wrestling program?
17. Norway - I really hope they can keep the program afloat. Great group of youth wrestlers coming up.


Let me know what you think.

Ken Graber duals in Munising-Mqt.took 1st with a well balanced line up, tough kids at most wt classes. I think their 140 was voted co- O.W. Their 160 looked solid and could make waves at the U.P. championships depending on where Willey Ishp. and Johnson Esky. wrestle.
The dual of the day was for 2nd place between St. Ignace and Gladstone the winner being decided on the last match at 112 both kids were frosh i believe and after an exhausting 6 min it went to overtime 3-3 St Ignace kid won. The 171 from Iggy was the other co- O.W.

not sure where the iron mtn boys will weigh in at but carr, ritzenheim, and gendron will probably all be on the podium between 130-145. I think kymes from the soo is in there. radecki from iggy will be there.edmark from ishpeming, taylor from mqt, damitz from gladstone, all could place at the up finals. havent seen many of the west end teams yet but after the esky elk tourny it will be easier to make a good guess
