LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ – Ahead of next weekend’s NCAA Championships in St. Louis, the Rider Wrestling Team is ranked No. 20 in the Intermat Tournament rankings, the top ranking of all New Jersey Division I programs. Local rival Princeton is ranked 21st, while Rutgers comes in at No. 25.

Rider will send four wrestlers to NCAA’s, three of which appear in the national rankings. B.J. Clagon (Toms River, NJ/Toms River South), Chad Walsh (Cherry Hill, NJ/Camden Catholic) and Ryan Wolfe (New Castle, DE/Caravel Academy) each earned automatic qualifiers with individual EWL Championships and rank in the Top 20 in at least three of four national rankings. 

Walsh headlines the group, ranking No. 5 in the Intermat, TheOpenMat and Amateur Wrestling News rankings, while taking the sixth position in the FloRankings. Wolfe is ranked No. 9 by both Intermat and TheOpenMat, while slotting in 10th in the FloRankings and Amateur Wrestling News poll. Wolfe’s position moves up with West Virginia’s Jake Smith being out for NCAA’s due to injury.

Clagon ranks as highly as No. 12 by Intermat, while also taking No. 13 in the FloRankings and No. 18 in the Amateur Wrestling News poll.
