IOWA CITY, Iowa – The University of Iowa women’s wrestling team is set to host its first ever home dual inside of Carver Hawkeye Arena on Sunday, November 12 at 11 a.m. CT. The Hawkeyes will welcome Presbyterian, Lindenwood and Sacred Heart for the “Trailblazer Duals” presented by Riverside Casino and Golf Resort.

“Being within a 15-minute drive from Iowa City, Hawkeye Nation is part of our DNA and we are very excited about being the presenting sponsor of the Hawkeye women’s wrestling program and the upcoming Trailblazer Duals,” said Riverside Casino & Golf Resort General Manager Damon John. “Our customers are passionate about the Black and Gold, and any avenue to support new opportunities for girls and women is something that Riverside Casino & Golf Resort can get behind!”

The four schools competing are the first schools to have NCAA Division 1 women’s wrestling teams. Iowa announced in September 2021 it would become the first Division I Power Five school to add women’s wrestling.

“I am super excited for the opportunity to showcase women’s wrestling inside of Carver Hawkeye Arena. Carver is such a historic place for the sport of wrestling and for our women to have the opportunity to put on the black and gold and compete will be unforgettable.”

Head Coach Clarissa Chun

Ticket information for the Trailblazer Duals will be released at a later date. The women’s wrestling full 2023-24 schedule will be released next week.
