Drury to add Wrestling

Drury University will add intercollegiate men's wrestling to its list of available NCAA-II sports programs starting with the 2016-17 school year, Director of Athletics Mark Fisher announced on Wednesday.

The university is in the process of accepting head coaching candidates for the inaugural wrestling Panthers program, which will play its home matches in Weiser Gym on the DU campus.

"We're very excited to announce the addition of wrestling as another alternative for Drury students to compete at the intercollegiate level," Fisher says. "We believe a Drury wrestling program will help fill a need for a potential college destination for a southwest Missouri area that's rich in wrestling tradition and talent at both the high school and youth levels. It will provide many of  those student-athletes with another opportunity to further their careers and get a great education at Drury while doing so."

Drury will become the sixth Great Lakes Valley Conference member to field a wrestling team - joining Maryville, Truman State, Indianapolis, McKendree and Wisconsin-Parkside - which also will put the GLVC at the required six member schools in order for the league to hold a conference championship event in future years.
