NEW! 2015 SHORT TIME PODCAST with Mat Talk Online. Listen to it here:
The final 2015-16 InterMat rankings featured 97 wrestlers that competed in the 2015 Super 32 Challenge. This includes four wrestlers that ended the season ranked first in the country, all were Super 32 Challenge champions: Adam Buisello (Eastport-South Manor, N.Y.), Nick Suriano (Bergen Catholic, N.J.), Yianni Diakomihalis (Hilton, N.Y.), and Mason Manville (Wyoming Seminary, Pa.). In addition, close to 250 participants from the 2015 Super 32 high school tournament won a state title, New England Regional title, or National Prep championship at season’s end.
At the 2016 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships in New York City, eight of the finalists were wrestlers that competed in the Super 32 Challenge during their high school career. This includes two-time national champion Isaiah Martinez (Illinois), world champion Kyle Snyder (Ohio State), Zain Retherford (Penn State), and Dean Heil (Oklahoma State). Runners-up included Bryce Meredith (Wyoming), Jason Nolf (Penn State), Tim Dudley (Nebraska), and Nick Gwiazdowski (North Carolina State); Gwiazdowski having won NCAA titles in 2014 and 2015. Of the 330 wrestlers to qualify for the tournament, well over one-third were past Super 32 Challenge participants, with 32 of those earning All-American honors.
