Roanoke College announces addition of NCAA wrestling program

SALEM, Va. -- Roanoke College Director of Athletics Scott Allison announced Wednesday the addition of wrestling as the College's 22nd NCAA Division III sponsored athletic program. The Maroons will begin competition in the Fall of 2021 with a search for a head coach beginning immediately.

"We're pleased to add wrestling to our listing of men's intercollegiate athletic offerings," said Allison. "Our first challenge will be to find the right person to lead our program. Once we have our coach in place, it'll be time to hit the recruiting trail…hard. We think we can build a quality NCAA Division III wrestling program, one that can show evidence of success on the mat and in the classroom. We couldn't be more excited for the challenges that lie ahead."

While wrestling is not currently a sponsored sport by the Old Dominion Athletic Conference, Roanoke joins Ferrum, Shenandoah (2020) and Washington and Lee as ODAC schools that sponsor the sport.

There are many sporting events in college, but I have never seen wrestling. I know that athletes always do not have time to write an essay, and I would advise them to read this is a really cool article in which you can give tips for crafting the best essay. You as a student will definitely appreciate it

I will try to help with just how easy it is now to find people who can help each student with writing. It is not difficult and everyone can. Just be sure to contact the professionals here . For example, I found here a great resource, which helped me to solve problems even with thesis theses, which is even cooler. So I hope that they can help you as well. Good luck, I hope that I really managed to help someone with this!
