Wrestling

In 2011, Maryville added wrestling to its athletic program. Head Coach Mike Denney previously led the University of Nebraska-Omaha (UNO) to Division II dominance with seven NCAA Division II titles before the program was eliminated during UNO's transition to Division I. With the majority of the wrestlers having transferred from the UNO program, Maryville qualified for the NCAA championship in its first season and is consistently one of the top teams in Division II, placing third at the national championships in 2014 and 2015.
