Thread: Jamestown College to add women's varsity wrestling team

    Default Jamestown College to add women's varsity wrestling team

    I was just made aware of the following news release. Great news that another college women's wrestling program is on the horizon.

    http://www.themat.com/index.php?page...rticleID=18115

    Jamestown college is in North Dakota, and it looks like it's a 4 year college that competes at the NAIA level.

    It's another great step, but I'm still waiting for a Division I school to step up and make a move towards adding a women's varsity program. (Arizona State has a "club" that currently consists of one female... again it's progress so I'm not complaining, but it would be nice for a DI school to sanction a whole competitive squad).

    Thanks, DH, for the link. This is good news.

    Here's a screwy idea I've had for a couple of years. Why couldn't Mark Cuban fund both a men's and women's program at one of the Texas Big XII schools? Now that he is actively involved in MMA this would seem to make more sense than when he just owned a basketball team. I've posted emails at the "email Mark" section of his website 3 or 4 times, but have gotten no response.

    Interesting idea.

    You should email him at mcuban@hd.net or send him a PM on Sherdog since he posts on there a lot.

    This is nice to see!

    I would like to see some Division 1 schools step up to the mat now. With their enrollment numbers it should be even easier to start some programs!
