On Friday Augustana University announced that their athletic department will go through the process of transitioning from DII to DI status. Augustana is located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and is currently competing in the DII wrestling Super Region 5. Last season the Vikings sent two wrestlers to the DII National Championships in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Senior Aero Amo came away with seventh place at the 184 lb weight class. Augustana is led by head coach Jason Reitmeier who is in his 16th year at the helm for the Vikings and their all-time winningest head coach at 176-80. The transition is slated to be finalized for the 2021-22 school year. More information is sure to come out in the following months and years regarding conference affiliation and such for the Vikings.
