The West Chester Wrestling program finished their season recently, ending with great success. The program finished with a National Champion, an All-American, and six Academic All-Americans. At the end of the season the West Chester Wrestling program was deemed 15th in the nation.
West Chester crowned a national champion in Kimberly Spiegel, becoming the first-ever Women’s Champion since the Wrestling Program at West Chester began.
