This pretty much sucks IMO.
It's possible. Title IX restrictions make programs like wrestling difficult for colleges to keep, especially because they are costly. And with other sports - particularly lacrosse - growing for both men and women, don't be surprised to see a lot of college wrestling programs fold in the coming years.
It's unfortunate, but I think wrestling is a bit of a dying sport.
