The second round of rankings from Wisconsin Wrestling Online are out and six Spartans find themselves ranked.  Of the six ranked Spartans, three are in the top three of their weight class.  The high individual rankings combined with Sparta’s team success last year has propelled the Spartans to be ranked 5th overall in Division Two.  Ahead of the Spartans are Oconto Falls, Two Rivers, Ellsworth and Luxemburg-Casco.

On the individual side, here is how the Spartans stack up…

At 126 pounds, Tristan Zurfluh dropped out of the rankings.  He was an honorable mention when the first rankings came out.  It definitely wasn’t anything he did since he hasn’t wrestled this year yet due to an injury.  On the team side, the Spartans dropped one spot in the rankings.

The MVC has 17 ranked wrestlers and Sparta leads all teams with six.  Holmen has five followed by Tomah and Aquinas at three and La Crosse Central with one.  La Crosse Logan and Onalaska do not have any wrestlers currently appearing in the rankings.  On the team side, Holmen comes in ranked 8th in division one  Lancaster, who the Spartans hung with despite missing a number of key wrestlers, holds down the top ranking in division three while Weston/Ithaca, a team the Spartans beat at Reedsburg, are ranked 6th in division three.  Below are the ranked individuals in the MVC…
