"Coaches Association 5A Rankings"

I looked at your rankings that were dated 12/20/10 and noticed quite a few errors with wrong weights and placings. I know that the season is still early and it is always difficult to rank kids; not to mention you don't have all the info about tournaments and weekly duals. So I will fill you in on what I know, and the mistakes that I have noticed.

  • Brody Quintana is not at 130 lbs, he has been wrestling 140 all year, and dropped to 135lbs for the Viewmont tournament.
  • Chaz Lavato wrestled 140 lbs at the Viewmont Tournament, and 135 lbs at Layton Tournament, not sure what weight he will go this year.
  • Young at135 lbs from Lone Peak is JV, and should not be ranked, you are getting him confused with Cory Hancock from Lone Peak. Hancock placed at 135 lb at Layton Tournament but has switched permanently to 140 lbs, where he has been much stronger.
  • Kendrick Roberts is not 135, he is 152lbs, and has never wrestled lower than that weight.
  • Bryce Boyer is also not 145, but has been 152lb all year, and beat Roberts at the Viewmont Tournament.
  • Nick Pappas also wrestled at 152, taking 5th at Viewmont.

He has also beaten Nick Runyan 9-1, Nate Lamb 4-2, in Region Duals. Beat Cody Bunderson 4-1, Tanner Merkley 8-5 in the Wasatch Duals Tournament (where Hancock placed first). He pinned Chaz Lavato and the South Summit kid, and has only one loss at 140 lbs, (to Brandon Lloyd, whom he beat 11-5 the next day at the Viewmont tournament). You have him ranked 4th at 140 but he has beaten the kids ranked higher than him, with no losses.

Not sure if your rankings have a bearing on the All-Star Tournament choices, but if they do, you are going to want to change some of your rankings. Hope this input was constructive, thanks for all you do.

Editor's Response

Thank you for the kind words.  But I do not do the UWCA rankings, I just post them.  I will forward this message along to the man who does, though.

Thanks for taking the time to contact UtahWrestling.org!
