Fourteen Plebes Join Wrestling Program
Army West Point head wrestling coach Kevin Ward has announced the addition of 14 freshmen to his program in preparation for the 2021-22 season.
The group is made up of cadet-athletes that represent 10 different weight classes and will join a program that sent seven wrestlers to the 2020 NCAA Championship, marking the team's third-consecutive year of achieving the feat.
“Overall, I think we are just really excited to finally get this recruiting class on campus and in the wrestling room,” Ward said. “This is a group of guys that showed tremendous belief in our program by committing to us through the lockdowns and all the strict COVID protocols. And from what we've seen out of them already they are worth the wait. They are hard-working, eager to learn, and ready to contribute. No one should be surprised to see a few freshmen in our lineup this season.” Read more.
