Jim Gruenwald wrestled in the Olympics twice. Andy Vogel’s been an assistant coach, head coach as well as an Assistant Athletics Director. Both will join Episode 4 of the Ice Hour, a Division III Wrestling Podcast.
Gruenwald competed for coach Ben Peterson at Maranatha Baptist while Vogel wrestled at Messiah. Now the head coach at Wheaton College in Illinois, Gruenwald’s entering his seventh year of rebuilding the program which as a proud wrestling tradition and hosts one of the monster Division III tournaments each season, the Pete Willson Invitational.
Vogel is in his ninth year at Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania. He’s entering this season with his biggest roster ever and he and Gruenwald will explain the process of building a roster and a team his school and administration can get behind.
Vogel has also run d3wrestle.com for nearly a decade and when we talk about marketing your Division III program, Vogel will talk about the growth of his website and both coaches will talk about their marketing efforts to grow interest organically around campus and with alumni.
