The top 20 Nassau county wrestlers have been identified using a power ranking formula to compare performance across weight classes. No subjective information was used to rank the wrestlers except for arriving at the power point system which was applied the same for each wrestler.
The formula weights the following factors for each wrestler:
- Points are awarded for performance in county and state tournaments only.
- Last years performance is more heavily weighted than performance in previous year’s.
- Weight classes are weighted differently based on strength of weight class in states over the last 10 years. Generally, lower weights have less weigthing than higher weight classes.
