    I agree with the other poster, Kato should have remained No. 1, No. 2 Corbett, Corey Cabanban No. 3 (who also is undefeated and beat out the returning State Champion at 113 probably the deepest and most experienced weight class), No. 4 Terukina (only loss to Kato), No. 5 Pascua (only loss to Corbett), No. 6 Nakasone (dominated and competed in a very deep and experienced weight class), No. 7. Sullivan (undefeated), No. 8 Ilabon (only 2 losses to Terukina and another deep, super tough and experienced weight class), No. 9 Villarmia (reward for 2X State Championship), No. 10 Micah Tynanes. I don’t agree Stevenson is in the top 10 because Stevenson loss to Pascua and ran from the competition to get his State Championship, if Pascua bumped up to 160 Stevenson would be out.

    No. 2 (No change) Corbett
    No. 3 Cabanban (Up from No. 7)
    No. 4 Terukina (No change)
    No. 5 Pascua (Down from No. 3)
    No. 6 Nakasone (No change)
    No. 7 Sullivan (Up from No. 9)
    No. 8 Ilabon (Down from No. 5)
    No. 9 Villarmia (Previously unranked)
    No. 10. Tynanes (Previously unranked)

    Other consideration:
    No. 11 Stevenson
    No. 12 Yamashiro
    No. 13 Cooper
    No. 14 Garcia
    No. 15 Gallarde
    No. 16 Cardus

    Kevin had the best robe after his win at states. That’s why he’s the top wrestler. If Kato had done something better then he would have kept his ranking.

    Just having fun!
