Wrestling returns to Fresno State

Wrestling returns to Fresno State (FOX26)

Troy Steiner had been waiting for this day for a long time. So were his student-athletes.

More than a decade after the program was disbanded, wrestling returned to Fresno State.

Tuesday marked the official first day of the season for the Bulldogs.

Steiner, their head coach, is in charge of rebuilding the program.

With a roster of local recruits and transfers, Fresno State expects to be competitive in the Big 12 Conference.

Steiner says his wrestlers already had high expectations when they signed on, and he hopes to help them meet their goals.

Fresno State's first wrestling meet in more than a decade will be on November 4th.

The first home meet, against Illinois, is set for the Save Mart Center on November 17th.
