For current standings
This list contains all wrestlers with 7 or more points

This list contains all wrestlers with 6 or less points

The annual Top 100 list is not meant to imply one wrestler is better than another (Many future PIAA State Champs are not, or will not, be on any of the PYW lists).
Its purpose is to recognize the accomplishments of these outstanding Pennsylvania youth wrestlers. The hard work all of them have put in, deserves the recognition.
We also hope to inspire & motivate those who do not make one years list to go the extra mile to make the next years edition.
In the end, may Pennsylvania wrestling be the beneficiary.

PYW will be using the 31 tournaments for the 2005 Top 100
(I still need to contact Harborcreek)

The following rules will apply to the 2004 Top 100 List.
Pennsylvania wrestlers that do not turn 15 before January 1st will be eligible for top 100 points at all the 2004 Top 100 tournaments. Only PA residents are eligible for Top 100 points. (All tournaments are open to other states except PJW and PJW Qualifiers)
Any tournament that would be cancelled, or not provide results will not be included. (PYW can not be held responsible for tournament results)
Any tournament not including full names & home states of place winners will not be included.
In case of tournament cancellation or withdrawal from the Top 100 PYW will not replace the tournament.
One score per tournament (highest finish)
Wrestlers can score a maximum of 40 points from Out of State tournaments.
Points given to only those recognized as a place winner by the tournament (only top two for PJW Area Tournaments)
Any wrestler originally in the top 100, but bumped off by a later correction is still eligible for the certificate & possible tee-shirt.
In case family, medical, or financial emergencies would force the cancellation of the 2005 top 100 list, Pennsylvania Youth Wrestling or Mark Morris can not be held responsible for any costs incurred while traveling to and from said tournaments, or costs incurred while participating before, during, and after said tournaments. Pennsylvania Youth Wrestling or Mark Morris also can not be held responsible in case of any injury incurred while traveling to and from said tournaments, or while participating before, during, and after, with or in said tournaments, in any event.
PYW wishes the best to all the wrestlers who shoot to be on the 2005 Top 100.

Certificates will be awarded to the top 100 point achievers

Important Top 100 information
Every wrestler deserves to be listed for their accomplishments and hard work.
In an effort to keep things manageable I am requesting the following help.

If you know of someone who is not listed please email me the following information.
- Wrestler name,
- Tournament name,
- Division and weight, and what place they took.
- Birthday of the Wrestler. (If the division they wrestled included 15 year olds)

Please continue to be patient with this process as we strive to make this as accurate as possible.

I want to thank everyone who has sent in corrections.
Your help makes the list more complete and accurate.

If you have any questions please email me. Mark Morris

Improvement made while going for it,
makes you a winner whether you make the list or not.
Keep in mind the real goal - Making yourself the best you can be for the true list
God's List

I Cor 9:23    I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings. 24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. 27 No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
And don't be afraid to set your heart on the

The PIAA Sectional, District, Regional, & State Championships!
