Louisville Fields Wrestling Program for 2017-18 Season.

September 13, 2017 | Chase Giunta

The University of Louisville announced the founding of their first ever college wrestling program this September. The new team coached by NAIA National Qualifier Mike Clark will hit the mats this fall with a full roster that will include Southern High Schools' Kentucky State Champion Thomas Noe and All-State wrestler Alex Olvera of Pleasure Ridge Park. Coach Clark said he was excited for the new opportunity given him by Louisville and anticipates a great first season. “We are in our first year with a young program and our guys will need to gain valuable college experience before we can make any grand claims, but we expect to make our presence known in the Mid-Atlantic conference this year”. Coach Clark hopes to qualify 3 or 4 athletes to the National Championships in Texas and believes that Noe has a shot at an All-American spot.
