Arkansas Baptist College has announced plans to add wrestling and softball to its lineup of collegiate sports.
The school, a Region 2 member of the NJCAA, will fill a void among colleges offering wrestling which are Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU).
The last HBCU to field a wrestling team on any level was Delaware State, which cut the sport a few years ago.
College President Fitz Hill and athletic director Charles Ripley said in a news release that both sports will begin competing in the 2011-2012 academic year.
Roosevelt Hadley has been chosen to coach the wrestling team while Ronald Roland will coach softball.
Hadley has served as a volunteer wrestling coach at the Arkansas School for the Blind and at Central Arkansas Christian School. Roland is a former assistant softball coach at J.A. Fair High School.Comments Off on Arkansas Baptist College Adds Wrestling!

The AWA would like to express their condolences to the family of wrestling legend Doug Blubaugh who passed away Monday the 16th from a motorcycle accident in Tonkawa, Oklahoma.
Disheartened New Jersey attorney Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti) struggles to keep his wife Jackie (Amy Ryan), their two young girls, and himself happy while moonlighting as a wrestling coach for New Providence High School. The team has developed a losing streak, and together with co-coach Vigman (Jeffrey Tambor), Flaherty is trying to fulfill the school’s motto as “The Home of Champions”. Through some questionable business dealings with older client Leo Poplar (Burt Young) Flaherty stumbles across a star athlete in the form of troubled teenager Kyle Timmons (Alex Shaffer), much to the delight of coach Vigman, as well as buddy and former high school wrestling partner Terry Delfino (Bobby Cannavale). The stage is set for Flaherty to get a double payday and a long-awaited winning wrestling team. Then Kyle’s mom Cindy (Melanie Lynskey) shows up—fresh out of rehab and flat broke, threatening to derail everything.Comments Off on WIN WIN Now Playing Nationwide!
