Ridgewater announces 19 recruits

Warriors Head Wrestling Coach Tom Gruhlke has announced 19 student-athletes that have committed to going to school this fall at Ridgewater Community College.

The Ridgewater Wrestling Program has put together a talented group of wrestlers that are ready to build on the success that last year’s team started under the first year coaching staff of Coach Gruhlke and Assistant Coach Tony Fratzke.

“This group of wrestler’s will give us the depth that we were lacking last season and springboard the program towards competing for the NJCAA State Tournament title and National Placement,” said Coach Gruhlke. “As a coaching staff we hope to elevate their success both on the mat and in the classroom.”
