CMSV adds wrestling to varsity sports lineup

THE BRONX - The College of Mount Saint Vincent (CMSV) is getting set for its first season of wrestling.

The small campus in Riverdale has made wrestling its 15th varsity sport in an effort to take advantage of a new facility and attract more students, especially men.

The school has about 1,500 students, two-thirds of which are women. Officials say about 20 percent of the incoming freshmen class is made up of athletes and administrators are looking to new sports to help boost numbers.
