USA Wrestling releases its Grappling rankings for May 2008

USA Wrestling has published a May ranking for its Grappling programs, featuring the top men and women Grapplers in the nation.

A committee of Grappling leaders has developed these rankings, which will be published monthly during the USA Wrestling Grappling season. The rankings are based upon the FILA rules of Grappling, as conducted in USA Wrestling sanctioned events.

USA Wrestling has already conducted three of the 12 events in the Grappling World Team Trials Qualifying Series. Two more events are set for this weekend, the Northeast Regional Qualifier in Phoenix, N.Y. and the Southern Plains Regional Qualifier in Fort Worth, Texas.
