Athletic Director Todd Hibbs previously coached at Olivet College and was the first coach for the reborn Alma College team in 2011. Hiram competes in the North Coast Athletic Conference. Wabash and Ohio Wesleyan are the other schools in that conference with wrestling. The men’s team is set to compete in the 2020-2021 season with the women starting in 2021.
