YORK — In the world of professional golf, Tigers Woods took over the No. 1 spot in June of 1997 and held that position for 281 consecutive weeks.
Centennial sophomore Doyle Trout was rated No. 1 from the start of the 2012-13 wrestling season (11-weeks) and continues to hold that position though the district tournaments.
Trout is the No. 1 rated wrestler in Class C at 113 pounds and holds that rank among area wrestlers.
However York junior heavyweight Ronaldo Trevino is creeping up the charts and looks to be a favorite to make the finals at 285 pounds in Class B. Trevino steps up from the No. 7 position all the way to No. 3 this week.
