Eastern Oregon University adds men's and women's wrestling
« on: January 12, 2016, 02:05:32 AM »
Eastern Oregon University in La Grande Oregon is adding a Women's wrestling team and reinstating their Men's team beginning next season.  They plan to hire one coach for both teams.  This is great news as it brings the total count to 7 colleges in Oregon with wrestling.
1. Oregon State--Corvallis
2. Pacific (Men's and Women's)--Forest Grove
3. Southern Oregon (Men's and Women's)--Ashland
4. Warner Pacific (Men's and Women's)--Portland
5.  Clackamas Community College--Clackamas
6.  Southwestern Community College Men's and Women's)--Coos Bay
7. Eastern Oregon (Men's and Women's)--La Grande

Here's a link to the official EOU article.  I'm probably more excited about this addition than any other I've seen.  Eastern is my alma mater and serves an area of the state that produces a lot of high quality wrestlers but has zero wrestling opportunities for people after high school.
