Let Them Wrestle
We the parents of the Bloomsburg Wrestling Team have been following the developments involving this year's wrestling season. We have seen all the major conferences, universities and colleges commit to having a wrestling season this year including our own MAC conference. We also see that less than 25 miles away at Bucknell they have committed to wrestling a modified schedule and even the state's largest university at Penn State has continued to move forward safely with this year's wrestling season.
We understand the concerns and safety that Bloomsburg University has with the spread of COVID-19. Most colleges and universities have put plans in place to keep all the athletes and coaches safe. The athletic departments can test, they can isolate and they can follow all the NCAA protocols, these plans and protocols have proven to work as most schools have continued to compete, throughout the fall and winter at their own wrestling clubs and regional training centers.
We the parents ask that the BU administration consider starting this year's wrestling season following all of the NCAA D1 guidelines and allow these athletes to make the choice to wrestle or not this season.
