Thompson, Oak Mountain wrestlers ranked in top 6

In the most recent rankings for Alabama’s 1-7A Classes, Oak Mountain and Thompson were the only teams to garnish the honor of a top eight spot in the rankings. Both represented Shelby County well at the state meet last year as the Eagles brought home a second place finish and although the Warriors were denied their first state championship in six years, they still brought home a third place finish.

This season, both of those teams have picked up right where they left off. In the rankings released on Jan. 8, Tompson came in at the No. 2 spot in Class 7A with 81 points as they trail only No. 1 Vestavia Hills (126 points) in the rankings. Oak Mountain got 66 points, which was good enough for the No. 6 spot
