The first NCWA Individual and Team Rankings are finally out! It's probably no surprise that the team title in the Men's Division looks like a 2-team race between Liberty and Apprentice while the Women's Division is up for grabs between 4 teams.
Despite the year off for Covid, the men's division still has 3 returning champions and an additional 3 national finalists amongst the returning 27 All-Americans. Many individuals will look for redemption as they were pulled out of title contention in the Spring of 2020 during the national tournament. The women's division has only 10 returning All-Americans including 6 previous national finalists.

Before working out with the wrestling team last week, Erin Aragon sat down and told a childhood story that was difficult to believe.

She was maybe 10 or 11 years when she forced herself to order a meal in a restaurant — out loud, by herself — for the very first time. “I cried when I did it,” she said. “It was really, really bad.”
