Wyoming Seminary to add girls wrestling club

Wyoming Seminary Athletic Director Karen Klassner has announced that a girls wrestling club will be added to the Sem athletic lineup for the 2017-18 academic school year.

The girls wrestling pilot program will begin in the fall of 2017, and its members will train alongside its championship boys wrestling program. The expansion of the wrestling program to include a girls club is due to the burgeoning nationwide popularity of the sport, particularly after Helen Maroulis won the first-ever U.S. gold medal in the sport at last summer's Olympics. "By adding girls wrestling to the Sem athletic lineup, we will be the only school in the northeast where girls can wrestle competitively. This is an up-and-coming sport and we are thrilled to offer this opportunity to students," said head wrestling coach Scott Green. A coach for the girls wrestling club will be announced soon.
