Gardner-Webb, Campbell and Southern Illinois-Edwardsville will join the league beginning with the 2011-12 season. The addition of the three programs, in conjunction with UNC Greensboro’s discontinuation of its program following this past season, will bring the Southern Conference’s wrestling membership to eight schools. The move will provide the Runnin’ Bulldogs with a chance to compete for a true conference crown for the first time in the program’s 22 years.
