Certificates will be awarded to the top 100 point achievers
Also, if enough donations are received through the
"Team of the Month"
The annual Top 100 list is not meant to imply one wrestler is better than another
(I realize there are many future PIAA State Champs that are not, or will not, be on any of the PYW lists).
Its purpose is to recognize the accomplishments of these outstanding Pennsylvania youth wrestlers.
The hard work all of them have put in, deserves the recognition.
We also hope to inspire & motivate those who do not make one years list to go the extra mile to make the next years edition.
In the end, may Pennsylvania wrestling be the beneficiary.
Picture of certificate below.
(PYW will keep everyone posted on the donation status)
Certificates will be awarded to the top 100 point achievers

The following rules will apply to the 2004 Top 100 List.
Pennsylvania wrestlers that do not turn 15 before January 1st will be eligible for top 100 points at all the 2004 Top 100 tournaments.
Any tournament that would be cancelled, or not provide results will not be included.
Any tournament not including full names & home states of place winners will not be included.
Any tournament taken from the list will not be replaced with another tournament.
One score per tournament (highest finish)
13 & 14 year olds will be the only place winners from the Ring Gold Rams Tournament to earn points (in place of S.S.Beaver's non-13 & 14 year old division tournament). Ring Gold will be listing the age of each place winner. NO 12 or under wrestlers that wrestle up in division & place will earn points at Ring Gold.
Points given to only those recognized as a place winner by the tournament (only top two for PJW Area Tournaments)
Any wrestler originally in the top 100, but bumped off by a later correction is still eligible for the certificate & possible tee-shirt.
In case family, medical, or financial emergencies would force the cancellation of the 2004 top 100 list, Pennsylvania Youth Wrestling or Wayne Beaver can not be held responsible for any costs incurred while traveling to and from said tournaments, or costs incurred while participating before, during, and after said tournaments. Pennsylvania Youth Wrestling or Wayne Beaver also can not be held responsible in case of any injury incurred while traveilng to and from said tournaments, or while participating before, during, and after, with or in said tournaments, in any event.
With the exception of minor adjustments, which may needed to be made,
PYW plans on staying with this format for future Top 100 Lists.
PYW will do their very best to have the 2005 list completed before October 2005.
PYW wishes the best to all the wrestlers who shoot to be on the 2005 Top 100.
Improvement made while goin for it,
makes you a winner whether you make the list or not.
Keep in mind the real goal - Making yourself the best you can be for the true list
The PIAA Sectional, District, Regional, & State Championships!
