Thomas More to Add Wrestling and Dance Programs

Thomas More College President David A. Armstrong, J.D. and Athletic Director Terry Connor announced on Tuesday that the college will expand its highly successful and competitive athletics and co-curricular programs to include both wrestling and dance teams beginning in the fall of 2016. The new programs will give both incoming and current students increased opportunities to enhance their student experience.

According to the National High School Federation of Associations, wrestling ranks sixth of all boys' sports in terms of participation at the high school level. 

“With many successful wrestling programs in the Greater Cincinnati area, wrestling is a natural addition to our NCAA athletic program,” said Connor.

The Saints Dance Team will give students the opportunity to experience TMC athletics at its finest while offering leadership opportunities, competitive dancing, and the opportunity to build spirit on campus. 

“Thomas More College’s mission encompasses helping students examine their place in the world and their responsibility to others,” Armstrong said. “By providing additional opportunities for teamwork, competition and leadership, Thomas More College will continue its long-standing tradition of preparing the best and brightest students for future success in the world beyond our campus.”
