Rogers State University President Would “Like to Add Men’s and Women’s Wrestling”

A review of the June 14-15th Oklahoma Board of Regents Meetings Minutes reveals that the President of Rogers State University, Dr. Larry Rice, would “Like to Add Men’s and Women’s Wrestling”.

When addressing the Board of Regents, Dr. Rice said the following.

” I’ve said this before, but I would sure like to add men’s and women’s wrestling, that would also help drive some of our enrollment. And I would like to add indoor volleyball that, that mirrors our MIAA conference. But we just don’t have a building for the wrestlers to practice or a building tall enough for the indoor volleyball to make it work. But someday.”

This would be a big boost for Oklahoma wrestling to get it’s first Division 2 Women’s program and first NCAA Women’s program.

Rogers State University is a regional university, located in Claremore Oklahoma, governed by the Board of Regents of the University of Oklahoma within a state system coordinated by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. They became a Division 2 school in the summer of 2012 and compete in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association alongside UCO.
