Fresno State’s wrestling program is being eliminated for the second time in 14 years.
The school announced Friday that the Fresno State wrestling program, which was dropped in 2006 in a cost-cutting move and returned to competition in 2017, will be eliminated at the conclusion of the 2020-21 season, along with the women’s lacrosse and men’s tennis programs.
“Today’s decision is difficult for everyone and yet it is a necessary step to ensure the financial viability of our athletics department,” said President Joseph I. Castro. “We appreciate those who have supported these Bulldogs programs over the years, including coaches, current and former student-athletes, and their families.”
