Olympic gold: ‘Keep Stanford Wrestling’ aims to save program

Shane Griffith recently captured the 165-pound title at the NCAA wrestling championships wearing a black singlet minus the Stanford logo. This was his way of making a statement after the school announced in July that wrestling and 10 other sports would be dropped to save money. In an open letter sent to the school community, Stanford leaders announced  they face “the reality that significant change is needed to create fiscal stability for Stanford Athletics.” Many in the community questioned the legitimacy of the administration’s arguments. The group “Keep Stanford Wrestling” has organized fundraising efforts to help save the program. It’s raised about $12.5 million so far.
