NJCAA brackets, final regular season rankings released

Charlotte, NC — The top seven of the final regular season team rankings remained steady after the conclusion of all eight NJCAA District Championships, with Clackamas, Northeastern Oklahoma A&M, and Northwest Kansas Tech heading the poll.

NJCAA TEAM RANKINGS (Final - February 2019)

 A trio of teams were the beneficiaries of a successful district weekend. Barton and Spartanburg Methodist made the biggest jump in the team list, with both qualifying a greater than the projected number of wrestlers to the 2019 NJCAA Championships starting on March 1st. Spartanburg had three wrestlers win individual district titles, led by 125's No. 1 ranked wrestler Tramon Jenkins. Fellow Pioneers Loye Burkhead and Caleb Spears also nabbed individual medalist honors. Barton qualified seven total wrestlers to next week's national finals, highlighted by Gage McBride's district victory over 174 No. 4 Tsogtbayar Tserendagua of Northwest Kansas Tech.

Jamestown also made a significant jump up the latest team rankings. Led by their No. 1 ranked wrestler Cameron Page at 184, the Jayhawks also won district titles at 174 (Daniel Torres) and 285 (Nick Jones) to see their upward shift in the latest rankings.

2019 NJCAA National Championship Brackets (by weight class)

Depth is key to success at the national championships. Seven teams qualified their entire complement of 10 wrestlers to Council Bluffs, giving them a leg up in their chase for the team title in 2019. That includes defending national champion Northeastern Oklahoma A&M. The Norsemen won three individual championships in the very difficult West Central District: Zach Porter (No. 1, 157), Antonio Andrade (No. 1, 285), and Zeke Silva (No. 4, 197). In addition, NEO had five other wrestlers finish as runner-up to set the Norsemen in a good position to defend their title.

No. 1 Clackamas also qualified each wrestler from their district. Zeth Brower (No. 2, 125) earned Most Outstanding Wrestler in the West meet in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Joining him on the top of the podium were teammates Jason Shaner (No. 3, 133), Elijah Ozuna (No. 4, 141), Mason McDaniel (No. 4, 165), Trajan Hurd (No. 2, 174), Trevor Senn (No. 4, 184), and Joey Daniel (No. 3, 197), and Tommy Mommer (No. 2, 285).

Ellsworth, Harper, Iowa Central, Northwest Kansas Tech, and Western Wyoming join NEO and Clackamas as the seven programs with seven wrestlers.
