Women's wrestling is real, and gaining, starting at SERTC

yesterday we just learned Jenna Burkert will be training there on the VT campus.

In June 2019, the NCAA's Committee on Women's Athletics (CWA) has “recommended that all three divisions of the NCAA governance structure add women's wrestling as an NCAA emerging sport, effective August 1, 2020.”

It's been growing in the Virginia high school and youth leagues as well. I coach youth - our program had 4 girls last year and it seems every program now has at least a couple of girls on their team.

There are plenty of good videos on YouTube of exciting women's matches. One of the most exciting wrestlers of any style from any country has been Helen Maroulis who grew up close to Virginia and competed in Northern Virginia tournaments. I look forward to rooting on Jenna now though Helen will always have that place in our hearts.

Wrestling may survive one way or the other, but for it to flourish as an NCAA D1 sport women's wrestling will NEED to be a part of that.
