The final North Dakota Class A wrestling coaches’ poll was released this week, with Gumke ranked No. 1 at the respective weight class. It came as little surprise, as the JHS senior grappler was ranked No. 1 at 195 all season long.

Jamestown also placed three other individuals in the final state rankings, including seniors Caleb Ellingson and Triston Shipley. Ellingson is ranked No. 5 at 170 pounds, while Shipley holds down the No. 6 position at 182.

Jamestown sophomore Paxton Mewes rounds out the Blue Jays’ state-ranked athletes. He’s currently ranked No. 4 at 138.

As far as the team rankings go, West Fargo is tops in the state, followed by Bismarck, Bismarck Century, Turtle Mountain Community High School and Valley City.

Grand Forks Central wasn’t ranked in the state’s top 10, but it is ranked No. 3 in the East Region ahead of Valley City and Wahpeton, who was ranked eighth in state. Dickinson and Bismarck St. Mary’s wrap up the top five in the West Region, following the Demons, the Patriots and the Braves.

The Blue Jays will be in Dickinson today to kick off the West Region tournament. The state tournament will be held next week in Bismarck.
