Support NU Wrestling

Northwestern wrestling is surging. In the most recent campaign, the Wildcats sent five wrestlers to the NCAA Championships and secured an All-American in the process. Leaning in to the challenge of competing in the toughest wrestling conference in the nation, Northwestern set dual records in 2017-18, thanks to the leadership of Matt Storniolo and his assistant coaches, who combined for 13 All-American honors in their collegiate wrestling career.
