LIBERTY — William Jewell head wrestling coach Keenan Hagerty announced the signing of the first men’s wrestlers in 28 years and the first signing class of his career. The men’s wrestling program was officially reinstated on June 1, 2020, after being discontinued in 1993.

“I am excited to recognize the first group of men’s wrestlers on our campus since 1993. We have a great group of student-athletes coming in this fall, who are ready to rebuild and create new traditions,” Hagerty said. “This group of young men have embraced the challenge of walking onto a new campus in the fall as the leaders into Jewell’s history of a renewed and reenergized NCAA Division II wrestling program. We are thrilled to get to work and began the journey.”
