ELLENSBURG, WASH.- CWU Wrestling is beginning preparations for the 2012-2013 season and expectations have been rising after a successful 2011-2012 campaign. Coming into the season, they have added a new head coach, Eric Idler, who formerly coached the CWU Varsity Wrestling squad before being cut in 2004. Idler currently helps out at Ellensburg High School as well. CWU also will host the NCWA Northwest Regional Tournament which will be the qualifier for the National NCWA Tournament in Allen, TX.
Central Wrestling has also added a new wrestling mat to their collection. The new mat is made by ResLite and will be much safer than the old mat that was used by the varsity program. “The mat will allow our club to grow and bring in new members” Club President Steven Alfi said . The mat will be used at all future home competitions. The Schedule can be found at the NCWA website.
