Wingate will add acrobatics and tumbling as the University’s 25th intercollegiate sport, welcoming inaugural team members to campus in the fall of 2023, with competition to begin in early 2024. President Rhett Brown and Director of Athletics Kelley Kish announced news of the team today.
“It’s always exciting when we’re able to offer Wingate students additional experiences, whether it’s in the classroom or on the field competing,” Dr. Brown says. “Our inclusion of acrobatics and tumbling means more women have a chance to compete in what the NCAA has identified as an emerging sport.”
