ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - Northern State University says it’s reinstating its wrestling program after receiving an outpouring of financial support from across the country.

The American News in Aberdeen reports (https://bit.ly/1FCVyeB ) that school officials announced Wednesday the program would be brought back immediately.

The school suspended the program in March and said it wanted to review the long-term viability and financing of the program for two seasons.

Director of Athletics Josh Moon says the school has received pledges of more than $70,000 per year for five years. That funding will directly support athletic scholarships, the program’s operating budget and the hiring of an assistant coach.

Moon also credits Mike Moyer, with the National Wrestling Coaches Association. Moyer met with school officials in March to map out a plan to save the program.
