When it comes down to it, I donít see a bunch of schools jumping to the forefront to suddenly add wrestling in the northwest junior and community colleges. Whatís holding them back? Now all the sudden because a few guys got together and talk about dropping to NWAAC from NJCAA , all these college presidents and boards are going to sign up? If they have been paying attention anytime in the last few decades they would know that wrestling is a huge sport in raw numbers of youth and high school. All sizes, shapes, socioeconomic status backgrounds, races and ethnicities are heavily represented in the sport. All the boxes that academics and scholars of this sort of thing like to check. And now young women, too!
Wrestling makes too much sense not to have, and Iím glad the topic is being discussed. To me itís always be a colossal failure and injustice for a state like Washington to not sponsor at the college level. (Iím very aware of HCC) hanging on as our lone representative. Itís amazing to me that it has been tolerated and accepted for so long. I am more than likely a bit biased when it comes to wrestling, but if someone was to tell me that not one 4 year college in the state, and only 1 community college overall.... had a baseball team, a girls volleyball team, basketball- men / women, soccer- boys or girls, not a single womenís track team etc etc. I think people would rightfully be up in arms and something could get done to remedy the situation. My two cents for the day.
Real name as always, hopefully this doesnít qualify as harassment or cyber bullying.😁
