MINNEAPOLIS — Augsburg University Women’s Wrestling Head Coach Max Mejia has submitted his resignation, after leading the Auggie program for the past two seasons, the university announced on Tuesday.
Mejia helped to launch the Auggie women’s wrestling program in 2019, coaching the team through its first two seasons. The Auggies finished fifth at the 2021 National Collegiate Women’s Wrestling Championships (NCAA schools) on Saturday, the best finish among all NCAA Division III teams at the event.
“I have appreciated my time here in the Augsburg Athletics Department,” Mejia said. “It has been a blessing to be involved with a university with such a strong wrestling culture. It was special to be a part of the process that led to establishing the only women’s wrestling program in the state of Minnesota.”
