After the First Tournament for the 2011-2012 Season
(Amanda Walker)

The first tournament of the year for the CU Wrestling team, and the first college-level tournament for many of the wrestlers, was the Cowboy Open at the University of Wyoming. This tournament is well known for its large attendance and difficult division one wrestlers. And the competition did prove tough for the nine wrestlers competing. There were many wins and losses, but each wrestler can proudly say they gave it their all and competed with class. If you would like to see records for the competing team members, visit the Roster page.

Now, the coaches will work with the wrestlers on the mistakes they made in order to improve their performance. The coming week will be a difficult one as they come off this learning experience and work to prepare for the UNC open on Saturday November 19 in Greeley, Colorado. These wrestlers would love your support when they compete, and if you cannot make it, another great way to show support is to donate to the CU Wrestling team. Wish the CU Wrestling team luck on Saturday!

Anticipating Success for the 2011-2012 Season - October 25, 2011
(Amanda Walker)

Wrestling practice began at the end of September, nearly a month ago, and is in full swing now. Armed with returning members and many new, promising members, the CU Wrestling Club is working hard to prepare for the season ahead and the first tournament. Our wrestlers will be attending the Cowboy Open on November 12, 2011, at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, WY. This all day event will challenge the wrestlers both physically and mentally as they put forth their best against many worthy adversaries.

In addition to the difficult yet rewarding practices is active fundraising. The club does not receive any money from the university despite the talent and promise of the club, so the burden of paying for gear, travel, and tournament fees falls solely on the members. The members are thus working hard in passing out donation letters and engaging in work through the university. It is from people just like you that help to support these dedicated men fulfill their goals. If you or someone you know would like to donate, you can securely do so through this website on our “Donate Now” page. They appreciate every dollar that comes in!

The CU Wrestling club is anticipating success in this 2011-2012 season!

Looking Forward to the 2011-2012 Season - May 9, 2011

The CU Wrestling team plans on working hard in the upcoming season to bring a new pride to the CU Wrestling name. In addition to the practices each week, the team plans on fundrasing as much as possible and asking for donations from the generous Boulder community. Plans to volunteer in the community are also underway as it is a good chance to give back to our community and grow as people and a team. One of the other main goals is to add new talent to the team, so if you or anyone you know is interested in trying wrestling for the first time or continuing wrestling, please contact the president, Adrin Linan. The practices will prove difficult but rewarding, and it is a great way to get to know other students and become a part of the CU Campus. CU Wrestling hopes to see many new faces on the mat this upcoming year!

A Summary of the 2010-2011 Wrestling Season - May 9, 2011

CU Wrestling recently completed their 2010-2011 season with some great success. After starting from scratch at the beginning of the year with a new coach and new president, the team showed dedication and heart by practicing long and hard each week. The Wrestling team competed in one dual against Colorado State University and in tournaments at Ft. Hays State University in Kansas, the University of Wyoming, the University of Northern Colorado, and Colorado State University in Ft. Collins. The greatest success came at conference in Texas when the three wrestlers that competed qualified for nationals in Georgia. Adrin Linan, Casey Myers, and John Combs gave their best and showed what it is to be a Colorado Buffalo. John Combs walked away with fourth place and became the first All-American wrestler CU has seen in many years. Off the mat, the team worked together on academics, raised some money, and volunteered in the community. With this successful season at a close, the team looks forward to more success next year and the hard work it will take to get there. Go Buffs!
