OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City University’s Cody Pfau earned the top spot in her weight class, while OCU landed at No. 3 in the Women’s College Wrestling Association preseason rankings.

Campbellsville (Ky.) and King (Tenn.) share the top position with 107 points, while OCU received 92 points.

The Stars placed six wrestlers in the top five of their respected weight classes. Pfau, the defending national champion, received the top spot at 109 for the second year in a row. The two-time all-American, a junior from Parachute, Colo., finished last season with a record of 34-1.

Returning all-Americans Shelby Morrison, a senior from Amarillo, Texas, and Carla Ponce, a junior from El Paso, Texas, are ranked second at 116 and 130, respectively. Last season, Morrison finished fourth at the WCWA championships, while Ponce placed seventh and compiled a 28-16 record. Also at 116 for OCU is fourth-ranked Marizza Birrueta, a freshman from Grandview, Wash.

Juniors Yvonne Galindo, of El Paso, Texas, and Heiley Garcia, of Carrollton, Texas, enter the season ranked fifth in their weight classes. Galindo finished eighth at 155 last season, while Garcia placed sixth place at 143.

Natalia Hinojo (130), Jackie Quinones (191) and Tatiana Vazquez (170) open the season ranked sixth in their weight classes.

Rachael Butler (143), Margaret Douma (143), Cassidy Jasperson (109), Becka Leathers (123), Monica Mason (191) and Rachel Young (136), all appeared in the rankings in their weight classes.
