Grand View is a private liberal arts university affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The school offers over 40 undergraduate programs and four master degree programs. Its pre-professional programs include medicine, law, pharmacy and physical therapy. Its 50-acre campus has an academic staff of 90 and a co-ed student body of around 2,000.

We are very excited that we are going to add women’s wrestling as the 26th varsity sport at Grand View

Troy Plummer, Grand View University Director of Athletics

The Vikings will compete as part of the NAIA. There was no mention of a head coach or the search for one getting underway, yet.

The addition of Grand View would mark the 53rd program competing in freestyle for 2019-2020 season. As usual, I wish the Vikings the best as they join this growing sport!
