Misericordia University will add two more sports to its vast array of varsity sports offerings, Daniel J. Myers, Ph.D, university president, has announced.

In addition to the recent addition of men’s ice hockey and STUNT, Misericordia will field varsity teams in men’s and women’s wrestling.

“Misericordia University is committed to expanding opportunities for students to be challenged academically, socially and athletically,” said Myers. “The addition of men’s and women’s wrestling allows more students the opportunity to engage in our university’s culture, one focused on student success, mutual support, and service to others.”

Misericordia expects to begin intercollegiate competition with the 2024-25 season.
