The Wyoming Wrestling Regional Training Center (WWRTC) bolstered its roster this week by adding former University of Wyoming wrestling standout Branson Ashworth.

Ashworth will begin his journey in senior freestyle competition under the WWRTC banner this fall. In addition to competing, he will serve as a volunteer coach for the UW wrestling program.

Ashworth will be the first full-time resident of the center since former WWRTC athlete Bryce Meredith competed from 2018-19. Meredith joined the New Jersey Regional Training Center in summer 2019.

“I can’t tell you how fortunate we are to have Branson with us,” UW Coach and WWRTC Director Mark Branch says.
