Five of the team were named all American and all seven girls placed all-American: Shay Workman, Biri Mendoza, Hannah Moon, Caroline Crawford, and Hannah Francis. National Champions: Biri Mendoza, Hannah Moon, and Caroline Crawford.

The wrestling program at Southwestern began as a varsity program this year (2012) and this is Bo’s first year as coach.  Kyle Croy began the program two years ago as a club sport when Kendra Nelson won an Individual National Championship in 2011 and through his efforts was able to convince the college to support Women’s Wrestling as a varsity program.
