  1. Hi. My name is Anna. I’m a sophomore in high school. I wrestled the past season for the first time. Now, my parents are making me quit because of the risk of injuries. I’m curious as to if I could still do the sport in college if I only did it sophomore year. I’m not sure what my options are now, I’m trying to figure out what possibilities there are to me still continuing the sport once I’m 18 and my parents don’t get a say in whether or not I pursue it in college. Thank you.

  2. I have a senior in high school who just placed 4th in the state. I am trying to see if I can get her into a college for wrestling. This is her first year wrestling too.

  3. Hey guys, My name is Trent Broderick and im a student at Monmouth University. A few friends of mine are trying to start a wrestling club here at Monmouth and could use all the help we can get. We need info such as: National club association, how you got started, funding and so on. Please email me at s1047271@monmouth.edu

  4. Daniel,
    Hello, I am so sorry for the late response to your email, we have been experiencing difficulties updating our site. I am Hannah Koch, the new president of the club, I would love to speak with you more about your interest in Lafayette and our club. Feel free to reach out to me at kochh@lafayette.edu anytime!
    Sincerely,
    Hannah Koch

  5. Mr.Campell,
    Hello, we are very sorry about the lack of updates this season. Due to a retirement in the IT department and position changes in our own personal board we have not been able to access the site. Thankfully our president was finally granted access to the site last week, so updates are in process of being made.
    Thank you for reaching out,
    Lafayette Wrestling Club

  6. Has the Club Wrestling Program been in operation this 2016-17 season? I received a nice letter in November from John with lots of plans, but see nothing on this website that indicates activity this year. What happened?

  7. Jim Greiner, I think you might not understand how club wrestling works. It is a student-run club activity, which means the coaches and educators, even the athletic department, are not the ones responsible for overall operations other than providing a member of the College faculty or staff to act as a moderator/advisor. The student-wrestlers are in charge of reaching out to family, alumni and friends of the program to fundraise with only minor contributions from student government (also at the discretion of fellow students).
    If the “soliciting” bothers you feel free to not make a donation. Or simply request that you be removed the mailing list. Either way, it’s not coaches putting kids up to anything, it’s wrestlers hustling to support a program that matters to them.

  8. A lot of nerve putting the kids up to raise funds for your program. How many emails are they required to send. My wrestling coach never put this type of soliciting bullshit on our shoulders.Talk to your educaters if you need money. Its called tax collection.

  9. Hi Travis,
    My name is Daniel Millspaugh and I will be applying to Lafayette for admission in 2017. I attend Friends School of Baltimore and have wrestled since 6th grade. The ability to continue wrestling at the club level in college is something I am very interested in.
    I will be on campus for an interview tomorrow (11/14/16) and would love to stop by to see the wrestling room if the team is practicing. Feel free to contact me.
    Daniel
