2023 Wilmington Div II District Ranking


Well-known member
Below is the early Div II Wilmington Rankings.
As you can see, I've copied off of Borofan's rankings and included only the ones that will attend this district.
I'm sure that I have missed someone, so make a note and I will correct/update.
Some observations of mine ...
* It looks like the team championship is between DeSales and Graham (9 DeSales & 8 Graham wrestlers ranked).
* 113 & 190 seem to be light (only 1 ranked in the top 12).
* 120, 165, 175 & 285 have 4 ranked in the top 12 (a bad draw is real).
* 138 & 144 have 5 ranked in the top 12 (138 has 1, 2, 3, and 4!!! ouch!!)
* 150 has 6 ranked in the top 12 (Loaded!!! Wow!!! 157 might be an option).
* Of course it's early!!! I know this!!! But I'm watching the World Series and bored!!!

Do some of the Central sectionals have a choice in where they go? Thought that was an option this year.


Supposed to be 2 Central sectionals this year. Might have the option to select a sectional / districts or they realign the WCH sectional back to Wilmington district.

Division II
Central - 2 sectionals (one to the NW district, one to the SW district) ... this is a PICK UP of one sectional
Northwest - 3 sectionals (host district with 1 C)
Northeast - 4 sectionals ... this is a LOSS of one sectional
Southwest - 3 sectionals (host district with 1 C)
East - 2 sectionals (hosts district this year)
Southeast - 2 sectionals (hosts district in 2024)

So, 1 central sectional goes to the NW district, 1 to the SW district. Seems like it would affect these projections quite a bit.
