Early look at Michigan’s top high school wrestlers heading into 2021-22 season

Michigan’s high school wrestling season begins with its first dual meets on Wednesday, but the state’s best have already logged countless hours preparing their bodies for a shot at greatness. From a team perspective, the state’s four defending champions – Davison, Lowell, Dundee and Clinton – all return loaded rosters that should have them in contention once again, but there are several schools that are eager and capable of dethroning the reigning champs in 2022. Team districts begin Feb. 9, and the individual tournament starts on Feb. 12, and this year’s playoffs include a new MHSAA-sponsored girls division that will see the top female wrestlers crowned alongside the boys at Ford Field on March 5. As usual, those dates will be here before you know it, so check out the links below to get the scoop on the state’s best grapplers heading into the 2021-22 season.
