From the Desk of Tom Borrelli:
Championships are the standard for Chippewa Wrestling. This team has
national championship expectations, and I firmly believe that we have never
been closer to accomplishing this goal. In order to do so, we need to
expand on the financial resources available to our program, and we need
your help. Championships are a direct result of the financial commitments
that our former letter winners, parents, fans and friends make to our
Chippewa Club and Championship Fund accounts.
Below are three objectives that will contribute to achieving our goal of a team national championship. I hope you will take a moment to review this material and seriously consider contributing to our Championship Culture. Every penny of every gift goes directly to Chippewa Wrestling, and a gift of any size will get us one step closer to a national championship.

Signage and Decor for Wrestling Room/Locker Room
Through new signage and decor in the wrestling room and updates to our locker room, our facilities will emulate the championship level of our program. We aim to make our locker room into an inviting space where our student athletes can unwind after a long day on the mat or in the classroom. We also want to display the history of our program through various pictures and plaques that capture the true essence of CMU Wrestling. The Chippewa decor will inspire current athletes and entice recruits to want to become a part of our rich history, which includes past Olympians, national champions, all-Americans, and conference champions.
Annual Cost: $2,000 or Cost: $10,000

To ensure a safe training environment for our student-athletes as well as a championship environment that will help them to flourish, the general upkeep of the exercise equipment and mats is essential to taking the next step toward the coveted national title.
