Four-time defending national champion Oklahoma City University holds the No. 2 spot in the Women's College Wrestling Association rankings entering the WCWA Championships this weekend. The event takes place this Saturday in Bristol, Tenn.

Simon Fraser (British Columbia) is ranked No. 1, while national tournament host King (Tenn.) stands third. Jamestown (N.D.) is fourth, and Lindenwood (Mo.) rounds out the top five in the team ratings.

Simon Fraser boasts of five No. 1-ranked individuals – Vicky Anthony at 109 pounds, Helen Maroulis at 130, Danielle Lappage at 155, Justina DiStasio at 170 and Jenna McLatchy at 191. The Clan ended OCU's dual winning streak at 75 and unbeaten string at 90-0-1 with a 22-10 victory Nov. 17 in the Harry Giese Duals in London, Ontario, Canada. Simon Fraser also captured the NWCA National Duals title Jan. 13 in Springfield, Ill., defeating the five-time defending tournament champion Stars 27-13.

In the 2012 WCWA Championships, Simon Fraser finished third place while DiStasio won the 170-pound title. The Stars won the national championship behind six individual national champions, while King finished runner-up.

OCU put two individuals at the top of the rankings at their weights. Emily Webster of the Stars has the No. 1 rating among 101-pounders, while OCU's Joey Miller is top-ranked at 116. Both Miller and Webster will aim to defend their individual national titles from last year.

The other No. 1-ranked individuals are Rachel Shannon at 143 of Lindenwood (Mo.) and Sarah Hildebrandt at 123 and Alli Ragan at 136, the last two from King (Tenn.).
