Not Really – an Apology
Okay, Schreiner University isn’t really the latest. They had made an announcement back in the summer of last year. At that time, however, given the amount of information which was provided, I simply did not feel confident enough to add them to the list maintained on this site.
You see, when I first started this site, I would get excited about every announcement that came along and more often than not it would end up in disappointment if I did not thoroughly vet the information. So, I came up with a list of questions that needed to be answered before I post information on the site.
Today, Charles Hueber, Dean of Students, and Troy Jewell, Head Wrestling Coach, have answered those questions and I feel confident enough to share the news of this exciting opportunity. But first, my apologies to Schreiner University for the long delay and thank you for understanding my reason behind it
Located in Kerrville, Texas, Schreiner University will be the second school in that state to join the WCWA. It is a private liberal arts school affiliated with the Presbyterian Church. It offers 27 four-year undergraduate degrees, a master of business administration and a master of education, The co-ed student body is made up of around 1,300 students. In athletics, the school is an NCAA Division III institution.
Coach Troy Jewell stated they are looking to fill the room with as many athletes as possible right off the bat. They will be offering athletic awards of $40,000 (over 4 years) on top of academic and need-based scholarships
” The goal is to create a program with a lot of depth, making it strong and one that will stick around.” – Coach Troy Jewell
If you would like to learn more about the program and maybe start a conversation with Coach Jewell you can use the link to email him.
At this point, the WCWA will start the 2018-2019 season with 43 member schools. I wish the Mountaineers nothing but luck as they enter the ever-more-challenging fray!
