Indiana Tech adding women’s varsity wrestling

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – Women’s wrestling will be added to the roster of varsity sports at Indiana Tech, the Fort Wayne university announced on Monday.

It will be the first time women’s wrestling has been part of a collegiate athletics program in the state.

The sport will debut during the 2020-21 academic year. The search for a head coach will begin immediately.

“We are excited to offer this emerging sport for women and look forward to building a winning program,” Warren said. “The opportunity to compete for an NAIA national championship is something we think will make us competitive right away.”

The women wrestlers will compete in the NAIA, which is the only intercollegiate athletics association to sponsor women’s wrestling, officials said.

Women’s wrestling will become the 26th varsity program at Tech and the 12th sport to be added to the Warrior Athletics Department since 2005.
