[ WOMEN’S ] CA wrestlers ranked in NWCA/NCAA and NAIA


Here’s a list of wrestlers with California HS wrestling backgrounds who are currently ranked in women’s college. Some top competitors are not on the list (e.g. from Menlo College, Simon Fraser, Life Pacific, etc.) as their seasons have been delayed or canceled altogether. Both NWCA/NCAA (February 3) and NAIA (February 16) rankings are compiled via coaches’ polls.

In NWCA/NCAA polls, 170-Yelena Makoyed (North Central) is ranked #1 while 101-Pauline Granados (McKendree), 109-Alleah Gould (King), 116-Sugey Ceja (Tiffin), 136-Dalia Garibay (Colorado Mesa), and 191-Tavi Heidelberg (King) have earned #2 rankings.

In NAIA polls, 101-Nina Pham (Wayland Baptist) and 170-Alexandra Castillo (Campbellsville) top their respective weights.
