During the 19th century wrestling gained in popularity throughout the United States of America via exhibitions and festivals. It became organised and emerged as a distinct sport, finding its way into the university system, with the first intercollegiate meet taking place between Yale and Columbia University in 1903. This led to collegiate wrestling teams competing in the NCAA Wrestling Team Championship with the first championship taking place in 1928. The championships are held annually and Oklahoma have dominated proceedings and lead the way in title wins, with Iowa and Penn State making up the chasing pack.
The competitive nature of wrestling alongside the high levels of skill, commitment and determination needed to be successful make it a compelling sport to watch, with the NCAA events representing the pinnacle of wrestling for up and coming wrestlers. The rivalries between teams and individuals also add to the intrigue with new wrestlers keen to add their names to the record books and do their teams proud.
