INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA has announced the qualifier allocations for the 2015 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships as listed in the chart below.

Each qualifying tournament was awarded spots per weight class based on current year data. Each wrestler was measured on the following: Division I winning percentage at the weight class, rating percentage index (RPI) and coaches ranking.

For each wrestler that reached the threshold in at least two of the three categories, his qualifying tournament was awarded a qualifying spot in that weight class. Each qualifying tournament, with automatic qualifying status, was awarded a minimum of one wrestler per weight class, which will go to the tournament champion, even if they did not have any wrestlers reach at least two of the three thresholds. NCAA tournament spots for each qualifying event will be awarded at the tournament based solely on place-finish.

After all of the qualifying events have concluded, the NCAA Division I Wrestling Committee will meet in-person to select the remaining 70 at-large qualifiers, which will be announced on March 11. All weight classes will consist of 33 wrestlers. The at-large selections will be made based on the following criteria: head-to-head competition, qualifying event placement, quality wins, results against common opponents, winning percentage, RPI, coaches ranking and the number of matches contested at that weight class.

Week in Review 12/7

EWL Athletes/Freshman of the Week (Dec. 8)

Edinboro’s Schopp, Port & Habat named EWL Athletes of the Week; Clagon named EWL Rookie of the Week

EWL Wrestler of the Week – A.J. Schopp, Mitchell Port & Dave Habat (Edinboro)

The redshirt senior trio of A.J. Schopp (133 lbs.), Mitchell Port (141 lbs.), and Dave Habat (149 lbs.) won their fourth consecutive individual PSAC titles on Saturday. It marks the first time in PSAC history that a team has had three four-time champions in its lineup. When the day started just 14 former wrestlers had won four conference crowns. This is an impressive feat by these three gentlemen and therefore all were honored as EWL Wrestlers of the Week. No. 13 Edinboro won the PSAC team title.

EWL Freshman of the Week – BJ Clagon (Rider)

Clagon continued a strong freshman campaign by leading No. 22 Rider to upset win over No. 10 Lehigh. Clagon’s 16-5 win over Lehigh’s Drew Longo was the key for Rider’s upset. This match proved to be the difference in the dual, as both teams won five bouts and criteria was used to determine the winner. Rider won the criteria on total points, 46 to 41, 16 of which were scored by Clagon. The last time Rider won at Lehigh was during the 1993-94 season.

Clarion, Cleveland State, Edinboro, and many unattached wrestlers scheduled to compete

125: Right out of the gate an interesting weight. Sean Russell (Edinboro), Kory Mines (Edinboro), Dalton Macri (unattached). Russell won the wrestle off bout against NCAA qualifier Mines already.

133: Scott Delvecchio (Rutgers) and Jade Rauser (Utah Valley) look to be the guys to beat here. Chase Zemenak and Zach Valley could have an impact as well.

141: True Frosh Alfred Bannister will make his D1 debut unattached for the Terps. Rutgers Tyson Dippery and Brock Zacherl of Clarion are likely the front runners along with Baby J (Bannister) to win this weight.

149: Edinboro AA Dave Habat, Clarions Sam Sherlock and Cornell recruit Joey Galasso look like the guys to beat here.

157: PSU True Frosh Jason Nolf makes his D1 debut at 157 against the likes of Austin Matthews of Edinboro. They look to be the class of this weight.

165: Jon Jay Chavez, a Cornell recruit and Kasey Davis of Edinboro look like the guys to beat at a cursory glance.

174: Bo Nickal is entered here for PSU unattached! Another Cornell commit, Dylan Artigliere is in this field as well as Patrick Jennings of Edinboro and Jarred Lux of Buffalo round out the field here.

184: Edinboro’s Vic Avery will be the man to beat here at this weight.

285: Adam Fager of Utah Valley and Joe Stolfi of Bucknell seem to be on a collision course for a battle in the finals here! Also keep an eye on Jeramy Sweany, a Cornell commit as well as Dawson Peck of Maryland.
