    West Virginia sports

    WVU expected to add men's golf * - WVU Sports - Charleston Daily Mail - West Virginia News and Sports -


    As far as the Big 12, gymnastics and wrestling are conference sports, but we won't be traveling (to the Midwest) for dual meets. The same with swimming and diving, women's track and field and cross country, rowing.

    "In those sports, we'll only go to Big 12 Championships - and we'll have an opportunity to host some of those championships here, I think, which we want to do.

    "The sports where we will go (and Big 12 visitors will come to Morgantown) will be volleyball, women's tennis, women's soccer, baseball, both basketballs (men, women) and football, of course.

    "There has been some confusion about that. In wrestling, for example, we won't be able to be in the Eastern Wrestling League anymore, but I'd imagine in dual meets we'll still face a lot of those same teams we do now."

    Really looking forward to a road trip to Morgantown, though I'm assuming getting football tickets there may be tough.

    Re: West Virginia sports

    That is terrible to hear, especially for wrestling and gymnastics, which are counting on WVU to replace Missouri. How can they not be willing to fund one, at most two, trips to the Midwest a year? If they are full conference members aren't they obligated to compete in the conference?

    I certainly hope they are never allowed to host a championship for any sport they don't actually participate in.

    I agree, if they aren't going to wrestle in season duals, they should not host Big 12 tourney.
