Eastern Gateway Community College will add another sport beginning next fall with wrestling set to become their third varsity program, joining baseball, which began in the fall of 2017 and women’s volleyball, also set to begin this fall under the direction of head coach Joe Conroy.

Former YSU and Ohio University grappling standout Dom Mancini, long considered one of the area’s outstanding wrestlers and scholastic head coaches during his 20-year run at Boardman High School, has been tabbed as the program’s first head coach.

“As our athletic program continues to grow, we are very excited about the addition of men’s varsity wrestling next fall,” EGCC director of athletics John Zizzo said. “Dom Mancini will lead our wrestling program as head coach, bringing a wealth of wrestling knowledge and experience to EGCC Athletics.

“During his time as head coach at Boardman High School and his involvement with area youth wrestling programs, we felt that he was a perfect fit for starting up and coaching our program, now and into the future.”
