I love the coverage, but could we get individual weight rankings please?!

If these rankings are not subjective–the number of grapplers a school sends to the traditional finals probably should have some significance (in additional to the way the teams finished in the State Duals).

AAAAA Classification–The number of participants for each shcool is:

Pope 13
Ware 9
Whitewater 9
Creekview 8
Effingham 8
SW Dekalb 8/7
Woodland 7
Flowery Branch 7
Lee 7
Allatoona 6
Loganville 6
Richmond Hill 6
Clarke 6
Harris 5
Spalding County 5
Union 5
Ola 5
Rome 5

You can find some individual rankings on the Georgia National Wrestling Alliance site under the forum section for High School Wrestlings. The last individual rankings came out just before Traditional Area/Regional tournaments. While there are issues–they really are useful indicators for the time and information it probably takes to individually rank 14 weight categories for all 6 classifications. gnwa.org
