Oregon College Wrestling Mid 1970’s & Today

In the mid 1970’s, Oregon had 23 college wrestling programs. Today, we have only 7 intercollegiate men’s wrestling programs and 5 women’s programs:

Restore College Wrestling Oregon played a pivotal role in Warner Pacific College and Eastern Oregon University deciding to add men’s and women’s intercollegiate wrestling programs to their athletic departments.

These Programs Need Your Support

Visit their websites, look at their schedules, and when they wrestle near you, round up a few kids and go support them. Help keep the programs we have strong by attending their matches and tournaments. And please, answer our call to action. Support wrestling at all levels here in Oregon. Join the team and help RCWOR create more college wrestling programs here in Oregon.

 Why Restore College Wrestling In Oregon?

  • To better serve the interests of the thousands of young men and women who compete each year in Our Sport in Oregon high schools. We now have far fewer college wrestling programs than we did 30 years ago and many more participants at the high school level.
  • To prepare the next generation of coaches to lead wrestling programs at a variety of levels in Oregon.
  • To provide another caring and disciplined environment where college students can set, and work toward, meaningful goals.
  • To provide a college level athletic outlet for aspiring young people where size is not a limiting factor in achievement.
  • To provide an opportunity for people with handicaps to compete successfully beyond the high school level. E.g. the 2011 NCAA Wrestling Champion Anthony Robles, of Arizona State U, who was born with only 1 leg.
  • To be part of an individual college sport where the link between personal investment in physical and mental preparation and success is fairly transparent.
  • To build lifetime memories and relationships.
  • To better promote a sport, which is contested in more countries than any sport, other than soccer.
  • To do our part to add to the legacy of man’s oldest sport.

The National Wrestling Coaches Association has collected some important facts about intercollegiate wrestling. Please read them here.

Good luck to the Oregon Middle School National Duals Team headed right now to Wyoming to compete! #GrowWrestling in #Oregon! #RCWOR #OregonWrestling #CollegeWrestling   www.rcwor.org
Spotted at the NWHOF banquet...
A trio of NAIA National Champions.
L to R: Ed Ritt(Pacific); Rich Edwards(WOU/formerly OCE) and Harold
Weight(Lewis & Clark)
These 3 did more than just win National titles, they dominated:
Ritt, received the Gorrarian Award for Most Falls/Least time in the
National tournament,
Edwards was unscored upon through the National tournament,
Weight had only 2 points scored on him in 5 matches in the National
Tournament. The guy who finished 3rd behind him finished 2nd in NCAA
Div I two years in a row. In those days you could compete in both.
FYI. Harold & Ed were both Sunset HS alums---who both wrestled at Pacific University under Coach Clock.

Harold Weight & Ed Ritt, both got some special tutoring from Garry Stensland & Pat Clock during their formative years. Garry was a coach at SHS and Pat made his contribution at LC and Pacific.
