Penn wrestling had an incredibly successful season. Now, they've got an offseason to match.

The Quakers sent all four of their senior captains to the NCAA Championship in Cleveland, OH. One even made it a single win away from the podium. The seniors capped off what were already incredible careers with the program.

Now that they're proudly graduated, another alum of the program is ready to give the program a big offseason win. The Harris Family Foundation, run by Josh and Marjorie Harris, is giving $1 million over five years to the program, including $500,000 to create the Joshua J. Harris Wrestling Assistant Coach Endowment. 

The other half of the money will go towards recruiting, updating equipment and facilities, travel, and other expenditures. Not only will this donation help the bottom line, it will promote the program's ability to grow and recruit top wrestlers for years to come.
