Welcome To The Nittany Lion Wrestling Club

The Nittany Lion Wrestling Club's goal is to be the premier wrestling club in the United States! Based on the results of the past two years, the NLWC is well on its way to achieving this goal. 

The designation of the the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club as an U.S. Olympic Regional Training Center with practices held in the Penn State Wrestling Room in the Lorenzo Wrestling Complex has enabled the NLWC to expand its reach, and the results have been impressive.
