What makes this even more impressive is how the wrestling alumni brought
Princeton wrestling back from the dead

It is great to see our Ivy wrestlers compete and win at a national level.

Good post, M3. The story continues from there. A varsity program was restored, and wrestling alumni have remained huge, key supporters of the program.

But it was initially restored tepidly, without admissions slots. We would yearly forfeit 3, 4, 5 weight classes per contest. After his hiring Ayres -- who is outstanding -- and Walters huddled with Admissions and wrestling was given admission slots like other varsity programs. Not as many perhaps as some other League competitors, but a viable number.

Ayres still has the usual Admissions office travails. His range of recruitable wrestlers is less than at least a few of his Ivy competitors, as of about 3 or 4 years ago and probably still true today. But so long as he does well within the academic range where he can recruit, we can be competitive. He has done a pretty good job doing so though it is never easy and he has lost guys who want to come but wind up elsewhere in the League. That scenario varies, I assume, among our programs. We are fortunate to have Ayres.
