Spartans make Coaches’ poll

SM-Tn Sports

Summit is listed among the teams in the initial Tennessee Wrestling Coaches Poll, coming in at No. 9.

Now in its 29th year, the poll is primarily a measure of dual-meet strength with some consideration given to individual tournament strength. Votes are cast by a statewide panel of high school coaches and are based on a maximum power ranking of 144.

The Spartans improved to 11-0 on the season with a 36-30 district win Tuesday at 12th-ranked Brentwood. Thursday’s scheduled match against Green Hill has been canceled, as has a weekend trip to Cleveland for a duals tournament. Currently, their next match is set for Dec. 18 against visiting Riverdale.

This week’s poll, with power ranking points, follows:

  1. Baylor 131
  2. Cleveland 129
  3. Wilson Central 118
  4. Christian Brothers 103
  5. Bradley Central 98
  6. McCallie 83
  7. Dobyns-Bennett 72
