GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College will offer women's wrestling as a varsity intercollegiate sport beginning in Fall 2020. It will be the first college or university in North Carolina to do so.
The announcement comes on the heels of the NCHSAA Women's Invitational Tournament which drew over 180 competitors in only its 2nd year.
"This is a great opportunity for young women wrestlers, especially in the state of North Carolina," said head wrestling coach Kevin Birmingham, who will coach both the men's and the women's teams. "The sport is really taking off at the high-school level, and where are those women going? I want them to come to Greensboro College."
