With the 2023 14U National Duals competition starting on Thursday morning, USA Wrestling releases the pre-ranking seeds of the teams that are registered to compete.

These reflect the combined point totals for all the individual athletes on each team roster, with points given for past achievements at the national and regional levels.

Illinois has the most points heading into tonight’s weigh ins with 28, followed by Pennsylvania Blue with 22. Team Maryland is next with 21 points, followed by Team New York and Ohio Scarlet with 20 points.

New Jersey, which won the 2022 14U National Duals in Greco-Roman, has 10 points, in the middle of the pack in these rankings.

These point totals will be used to break the tournament into the initial pools. For teams tied with the same number of points, their draw at weigh-in will be used to place them in pools.
