A power ranking of the top 25 New York State Division I high school wrestlers for the 2009/2010 season. A power ranking formula was used 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 at state tournaments only.
- 2009’s state performance is more heavily weighted than performance in previous years.
- A formula is used to weigh the strength of each weight class. Weight class strength varies from year to year. Weight classes have different weights, but generally, lower weights have less weigthing than higher weight classes.
- Only wrestlers who have placed in state tournaments earn points.
