King Holds at No. 2, Revelle Races into Rankings

BRISTOL, Tenn. – Heading into the weeks that lead toward the 2012 WCWA National Tournament, the latest Women's College Wrestling Association rankings have been released revealing 13 team members in the top-8 of their respective weight classes, including newcomer Krista Revelle. The Lady Tornado also retained their No. 2 rankings in the team national poll.
 

Revelle, native of Meriden, Kan., burst onto the scene notching a 3-0 record at last weekend's NCWA National Duals in her first collegiate action. She surrendered just two points in her three wins and earned a number-two ranking at the 136-pound weight class in just her first week of action. Revelle joined the Tornado as a first-year student this January after graduating from her respective high school early.

Three King wrestlers took top-ranked spots in their respective weight classes, including Alli Ragan (Carbondale, Ill.) at 143 pounds. Emily Martin (Frisco, Texas) kept her No. 1 rankings for the fifth consecutive month at the 109-pound division and Julia Salata moved up to the 170-pound division where she resides atop the poll.

Kayla Brendlinger (Slippery Rock, Pa.) went from being No. 6 at 123 pounds to the No. 3 spot in the 130-pound weight class. Shannon Constantine (Haverhill, Md.) made a huge jump from the unranked to being named No. 2 at 109 pounds. Samantha Klingel (Kresgeville, Pa.) was tabbed third in the 116-pound division. Complete rankings are listed below.

King remained at No. 2 for the fourth month in a row after moving up two spots in the mid-October ranking. The Lady Tornado will host the 2012 WCWA National Tournament at the Student Complex Center on Saturday, Jan. 28.
