This afternoon, Ursinus College in Collegeville, PA announced that they were starting a women's wrestling program. Ursinus competes at the DIII level and is the eighth school in Pennsylvania to sponsor women's wrestling.
The program will reportedly begin competition in the Fall of 2022 and hire a head coach for the women's program.
Ursinus is no stranger to women wrestling in college. Two women were on the Bears roster for the 2021-22 season. One of them, Sydney Bowman, went 5-1 competing in exhibition matches last season.
With Ursinus' addition, there are now 114 intercollegiate women's wrestling programs in the United States.
Here's more information on the Ursinus announcement.
