"It is a positive sign for the college that we continue to grow our enrollment through increasing athletic opportunities," said Mark Perdue, Lincoln College's athletic director, in a release from the school. "The addition of new programs was part of the charge I was given when hired as AD, and I look forward to seeing these new teams form and add to the Lincoln College tradition of athletic excellence."
Lincoln College also added archery to bring the total number of intercollegiate sports and clubs offered by the school to 25.
The program has already begun to recruit athletes under the direction of current men's wrestling coach Jordan Bakely and assistant coach Sam Recco.
The search for a women's wrestling head coach has started with the goal of having someone in place by the spring of 2020.
