Club Wrestling Elevated to Varsity Status in Both Men’s and Women’s Programs

MEN'S and WOMEN'S WRESTLING are moving to the roster of varsity sport offerings. Both teams are currently club sports at the Academy, competing in the National Club Wrestling Association (NCWA). The program will continue in the NCWA for one more year before moving to NCAA competition for the 2024–2025 season.

Last season, the club fielded eighteen wrestlers, including the Academy’s first female wrestler, Jenna Willard. In the 2021–2022 campaign, the team competed in five regular season invitationals before qualifying for the NCWA Northeast Conference Championship. At the tournament, six wrestlers qualified for the NCWA National Championship held in Texas, and Willard was named the Most Outstanding Wrestler in the Women’s Division.
