Otterbein wrestling’s return season followed by CityScene magazine and Jan. 10 fundraiser


Otterbein University saw the return of its wrestling program after the sport was cut from competition in 1974. Brent Rastetter was hired from Lexington High School in Lexington, Ohio, as a highly decorated and experienced coach. The Cardinals are off to a hot start, winning their first six dual-matches in a row and currently boasting a 7-1 overall record. CityScene magazine profiled the returned program, capturing the excitement and commitment of the coaches, athletes and Otterbein community.
