The first Montana AA Girls Wrestling Rankings are based on several components, including current records, coach assessments, past accomplishments, and head to head matchups when they exist. Only records against other girls are included in these rankings and, as such, many competitors do not have a record because of limited matches in some communities. The Montana High School Association (MHSA) has tentatively set seven weight classes for girls wrestling competition. These weight classes may change based on future MHSA decisions. The girls state tournament will be an all-class tournament at this time. Team rankings will not be calculated initially, but will become integrated in the rankings after a a few more competitions.
