Northland to Add Wrestling Program in Fall 2013


Northland Community & Technical College is proud to announce the addition of a men’s wrestling program. The men’s wrestling program will be housed on the Thief River Falls campus. The wrestling team’s inaugural season will begin in the fall of 2013.

The Pioneer wrestling team will compete in the Minnesota College Athletic Conference (MCAC). Northland plans to have 20 to 25 student wrestlers on the team. “We are very excited to start an intercollegiate wrestling program at Northland. Wrestling in northwest Minnesota has a strong tradition of excellence and great fan support in our region. Adding intercollegiate wrestling to Northland will help the college grow and support our current programs,” said Dean of Student Development Steve Crittenden.

Northland plans to begin the recruiting process for student wrestlers by January. The hiring process for the head coach is starting this week. “It is our hope this is the first step in developing more intercollegiate athletic programs for men and women at Northland. We look forward to exploring more athletic offerings in the near future,” added Crittenden.
