MARQUETTE - Led by Max Nowry's No. 2 ranking, 15 U.S. Olympic Education Center Greco-Roman wrestlers are ranked in the top 10 in the nation by TheMat.com, the official website of USA Wrestling.

The rankings feature athletes in the seven World Championship weight classes, of which the USOEC has at least one wrestler in each.

Nowry is second ranked at 55 kilograms (121 pounds) after winning the University World Championships in October.

"Moving up to No. 2 is nice," he said. "My goal is not only to be No. 1 in the country, but in the world."

"Being ranked is a good confidence boost for the athletes," USOEC Greco-Roman coach Rob Hermann said. "We have a good group of athletes here.

"Our goal is to keep progressing to become world and Olympic champions."

Here are the other USOEC wrestlers in the top 10:

55 kg - Isaiah Varona, No. 7; Dmitry Ryabchinskiy, No. 8
