Wheeling Jesuit Wrestling Program Coming Together

The Wheeling Jesuit University wrestling program is taking shape, and will begin competition in early November.

First-year head coach Sean Doyle, the former head coach at Wheeling Park High School and Cornell University wrestler, has assembled a recruiting class of 30 wrestlers, 26 of which are freshman, and four transfers.  Doyle has recruits from seven different states, including West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, North Carolina and Maryland.

The new wrestling room is taking shape on the second floor of the Alma Grace McDonough Center on the WJU campus.

The Cards first match is November 2 at the Citadel, in Charleston, SC.  The first home match is November 8.
