ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – Men’s and women’s wrestling is coming to Elmira College.

The Soaring Eagles announced the addition of men’s and women’s wrestling as intercollegiate programs that will begin competition during the 2020-2021 academic year. EC will be the first college to have an NCAA Division III women’s wrestling program in New York. The men’s program will be the 12th Division III program in the state. The addition of the two programs expands Elmira College’s varsity sports offerings to 20 intercollegiate programs. Elmira College briefly had men’s wrestling as a collegiate sport during the 1970s.

The Soaring Eagles will now search for a head coach for both teams.
