IOWA – According to the officials, there are more than 40 NCAA programs.
Right now, four schools offer women’s wrestling at the Division I level.
After adding women’s wrestling, Iowa will offer 22 sports, including 14 women’s teams and eight men’s teams.
Iowa head wrestling coach Brands said:
“This is important to a lot of people for a lot of reasons. This is historic. This needed to happen and it’s appropriate that it is happening first at the University of Iowa.
There is no greater place in the world to wrestle than Iowa City, Iowa, and with our new wrestling facility we are prepared to offer world-class training for both our Hawkeye men and women.”
