The national praise continues to roll in for York County wrestlers Chance Marstellar and Brooks Black.

This time, the honors come from The Open Mat, a website dedicated to covering amateur wrestling and MMA (mixed-martial arts) news. The site recently released its rankings of the top high school wrestlers in the country.

Marstellar, who is about to enter his freshman season at Kennard-Dale, was rated the fifth best 145-pounder in the country. Yes, as a freshman.

Black did him one better. The Dover native, who wrestles at the prestigious Blair Academy in New Jersey, was ranked the No. 1 high school heavyweight. He's about to start his sophomore season.

Safe to say, we'll be hearing plenty from Marstellar and Black in the future. We've written recently about both: You can find a profile on Marstellar here, and a feature on Black here.

A third York-area wrestler was also included in The Open Mat's rankings. Dallastown's rising senior Phil Sprenkle was slotted 13th in the country among 189 pounders.
