Section VIII Preseason Team Rankings for 2010/11

Rank 3 starSection VIII Division I wrestling teams are ranked for Dual Meet and Section Tournament competitiveness. The ranking is strictly formula driven. No subjective information was input to the rank other than developing the formula, which was applied the same for every team. The principle behind the ranking is the accomplishments of the returning wreslters will dominate the team’s performance. Obviously many factors make this ranking error prone. There are primarily 3 factors that are not evaluated: the contribution of new athletes to the program, the growth of individual wrestlers from one season to the next, and finally the growth of the team during the season.

  3. i belive top schools to be expecting great accomplishments are plainedege, wantagh, massepequa island trees, and farmingdale and of course also mcarthur. many underdogs are coming up from these schools and id say those schools are going to do very decent this year. i also thinkin division and uniondale would put up a fight at all times. island trees are underdogs and i belive they will get better as the seaon goes on. they have a few guys that catch my eye. as well as division. a few guys have left but twice the number have stepped up and i belive mccarthur and division will do well as always. and of course uniondale and massepequa. keep your eyes open and watch

  6. Here’s how we did for nassau. Well it’s not as impressive as our suffolk preseason ranking, but it’s still good.

    1 Wantagh -3
    2 MacArthur -2
    3 Plainedge 3
    4 Long Beach 3
    5 Massapequa 3
    6 Division 0
    7 Farmingdale -7
    8 Freeport -8
    9 East Meadow 2
    10 Uniondale 0

    Two wore 100% accurate, 6 were 3 or less away from the final standing, 80% were predicted within the 3 places from their final finish before anyone stepped on the mat, and 2 were 8 and 7 away.

    Farmingdale had zero returning all county wrestlers from 2010 and Freeport had 2 returning sixth place finishers. And freeport had a total of 4 returning top six in qualifier.

  7. Here’s how chris perez did for the top 10. Chris was our only contest entrant.

    1 Wantagh -2
    2 MacArthur 0
    3 Plainedge -3
    4 Long Beach 2
    5 Massapequa 1
    6 Division -1
    7 Farmingdale ?
    8 Freeport -16
    9 East Meadow 1
    10 Uniondale 5

    Chris got 1 100% accurate. 6 three or less away from the final standing for 70%. 1 five off, 1 sixteen off, and one not ranked.

    Good job Chris. Let’s here your thoughts. Is easy to predict the final standings in the preseason? Is lighthouse really that bad at it?

    My goodness Chris. How could you give Farmingdale no chance? LOL…
