KERRVILLE, TX: The Schreiner University Athletics Department has named Mario Vasquez as the new Head Coach of the Schreiner University Men’s Wrestling team.
Coach Vasquez will be coming to Schreiner as a former collegiate wrestler at the University of the Ozarks and Ferrum College. During his time at the University of the Ozarks he became a 2-time Conference Finalist and competed in the Lower Midwest Region. At Ferrum College, he finished his career being a 4-time Conference Finalist, Southeast Regional Finalist, and received All-American Honors with an 8th place finish at the NCAA National Championships in 2019.
“We are very excited with the evolution of our wrestling programs. We are transitioning to the NCAA Division III which will align this program with majority of our athletics programs. With the hiring of these two coaches, Madison Angelito for Women’s Wrestling and Mario Vasquez for Men’s Wrestling and moving Coach Jewell into the role of directing our wrestling programs, we get the best of both worlds. Coach Jewell will focus on wrestling and mentoring the two new coaches while Coach Angelito and Coach Vasquez will focus on the day-to-day operations of the programs on campus. I believe that this will be a win-win situation for our student-athletes and our programs.” – Bill Raleigh, Director of Athletics.
