Top College Teams by Wins #12–#23 (700+ wins)

Some of the schools with 700 and more wins have sponsored wrestling teams for over 100 years.  When looking at the number of seasons keep in mind that it was common for schools to discontinue teams in times of war and economic difficulties.  Cornell Univ. and Kent State Univ. are both in the top 15 schools and reached their 750th in last  season.  Indiana’s coach, Duane Goldman and Wisconsin’s Barry Davis both increased their totals and are the respective win leaders at each school.  Wartburg, Lycoming and Lock Haven all scored their 700th last season and are in the top 23 schools.

Top College Teams by All Time Wins # 41– # 59

Interesting selection of teams with 545 -599 wins.  Tennessee-Chattanooga, Virginia Tech, Ohio University and Central Michigan all topped the 550 mark in wins. West Virginia’s winning est coach Craig Turnbull finished his career with 287 wins for the Mountaineers.  Ohio Northern’s coach Ron Beaschler continued to increase his highest number of wins with his school with 272 wins.   Nebraska-Omaha has the dubious distinction of having the most win for a discontinued program.  Thanks to Trev Alberts for killing off wrestling and football so the school could lose great sums of money sponsoring a hockey team.  Gee, there are so many high schools in Nebraska that sponsor hockey.  Yes, a totally disgusting decision.
