March 23, 2018


Members of the Eastern Michigan wrestling team will have their voices heard on Saturday, expressing their disapproval of the university's decision to cut the program, along with three others, this week.

In conjunction with the Michigan Youth Wrestling Association state championships, a protest to save the EMU wrestling program will take place at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Wings Event Center in Kalamazoo.

About 7,000-10,000 people are expected to be in attendance for the state championships, said protest organizer David Dean, who also is a wrestling coach at Lowell High School.
