A Message from Coach Conkwright

As you know, varsity wrestling is in the process of being resurrected here at Hampden-Sydney College. I am proud to be a part of getting this program up and running and bringing it to a level that we can be very competitive on a Division III level.

We have a very strong nucleus with very enthusiastic and well-disciplined student-athletes. This core of wrestlers is setting a good foundation in attitude and work ethic that will form a great basis for future programs.

Our immediate goal is to fill the roster with 30-40 wrestlers. From this point, we anticipate the quality of the program to steadily increase. To reach this goal, the help from alumni and fans of wrestling is instrumental. Any help that can be given to our program is greatly appreciated. 

Please feel free to contact me at any time. I enjoy meeting with alumni; it is one of the great benefits of this new position. Thank you in advance for all your support and help, it is greatly appreciated. We look forward to you becoming a member of the wrestling family here at Hampden-Sydney.
