"COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference has announced the adoption of women’s wrestling as the 22nd conference-sponsored sport, the league announced Thursday. The RMAC mandates that a minimum of five member institutions, including associate members, sponsor a sport to earn conference-sport sponsorship from the league. The announcement comes during the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the enactment of Title IX."
"Prior to the start of the 2022-23 academic year, 54 NCAA member institutions self-reported sponsorship of women’s wrestling as a sport. Of those 54 institutions, 20 are active, reclassifying or provisional members at the Division II level. The National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) lists an additional 11 women’s wrestling programs that either currently or will soon be sponsored by active, reclassifying or provisional members in Division II. The RMAC will begin sponsoring women’s wrestling in the 2023-24 academic year with five inaugural members, Adams State, Chadron State, Colorado Mesa, Simon Fraser and Texas Woman’s.

With its five inaugural members, RMAC women’s wrestling will serve as the first NCAA Division II conference to solely sponsor the sport. Upon the conclusion of regular-season competition in the 2023-24 season, RMAC women’s wrestling institutions will advance to the National Collegiate Women’s Wrestling Championship (NCWWC) due to the NCAA’s classification of women’s wrestling as an “emerging sport.”
