GAFFNEY, S.C. - Limestone College officials have announced the addition of women's wrestling as a varsity sport, with 2019-20 expected to serve as the inaugural season.
The addition of women's wrestling comes on the heels of Limestone announcing earlier this year that it is adding an Acrobatics & Tumbling squad that will begin competition in February of 2019. Limestone Athletics now fields 25 intercollegiate sports at the NCAA Division II level.
"The addition of women's wrestling will be a tremendous asset to the College and this region," said Limestone President Dr. Darrell Parker. "We have wonderful facilities already in place. We are proud to be among the pioneers who are offering collegiate women's wrestling in South Carolina, and we believe this will encourage other schools in the area to add the sport as well. The addition of women's wrestling enables Limestone to continue to be a leader in higher education and Division II athletics."
