King University News :: King Holds at No. 2, Revelle Races into Rankings

Heading into the weeks that lead toward the 2012 WCWA National Tournament, the latest Women's College Wrestling Association rankings have been released revealing 13 team members in the top-8 of their respective weight classes, including newcomer Krista Revelle. The Lady Tornado also retained their No. 2 rankings in the team national poll.

Revelle, native of Meriden, Kan., burst onto the scene notching a 3-0 record at last weekend's NCWA National Duals in her first collegiate action. She surrendered just two points in her three wins and earned a number-two ranking at the 136-pound weight class in just her first week of action. Revelle joined the Tornado as a first-year student this January after graduating from her respective high school early.

Three King wrestlers took top-ranked spots in their respective weight classes, including Alli Ragan (Carbondale, Ill.) at 143 pounds. Emily Martin (Frisco, Texas) kept her No. 1 rankings for the fifth consecutive month at the 109-pound division and Julia Salata moved up to the 170-pound division where she resides atop the poll.

Kayla Brendlinger (Slippery Rock, Pa.) went from being No. 6 at 123 pounds to the No. 3 spot in the 130-pound weight class. Shannon Constantine (Haverhill, Md.) made a huge jump from the unranked to being named No. 2 at 109 pounds. Samantha Klingel (Kresgeville, Pa.) was tabbed third in the 116-pound division. Complete rankings are listed below.

King remained at No. 2 for the fourth month in a row after moving up two spots in the mid-October ranking. The Lady Tornado will host the 2012 WCWA National Tournament at the Student Complex Center on Saturday, Jan. 28.
