Women’s Wrestling Club in the Works at OU

Last week we did a story on the “Cowgirl Wrestling Club”, a grassroots effort by some students at Oklahoma State to establish a wrestling club team with hopes of eventually becoming an official part of the Oklahoma State Athletic Department.

This week, we’ve learned that a few students at OU are looking to do something similar.

Maureen Manzon, the treasurer of the University of Oklahoma Women’s Wrestling Club wrote the following on the group’s GoFundme.

“I hope this message finds you well. My name is Maureen Manzon, and I am reaching out on behalf of Leslea Helm and a group of fourteen determined young women, including myself, at the University of Oklahoma. We all share a collective dream of establishing the Women’s Wrestling Club on our campus.

Leslea Helm, our passionate leader, is driving this initiative with a vision to create an empowering space for women in wrestling. We’ve launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for essential needs like equipment, uniforms, practice space, coaching, and potential travel costs for competitions.

Your contribution, no matter the amount, will be instrumental in turning our dream into reality. It will not only support Leslea and our team in pursuing our passion for wrestling but will also contribute to fostering women’s sports at our university.

To express our gratitude, we’ve set up various reward tiers for our donors. From personalized thank-you notes to exclusive team merchandise and the opportunity to attend our first match as a VIP guest, there are different ways for us to show our appreciation.

Please consider making a donation to our GoFundMe campaign and sharing our story with your network. Your support will play a crucial role in helping us establish a lasting legacy for women’s wrestling at the University of Oklahoma.

Thank you for considering our cause and supporting women in sports.

Boomer Sooner,

Kudos to these girls for their work in establishing this. Interestingly, we could soon see “Bedlam” in women’s wrestling while we will soon be losing it in many other sports as OU heads to the SEC.
