Fowler Named Women’s Assistant Wrestling Coach
Charlotte Fowler has been named the new Women’s Assistant Wrestling Coach at University of the Ozarks.
Fowler was a team captain and three-time Women’s Collegiate Wrestling Association (WCWA) All-American at Campbellsville University in Kentucky. She helped Campbellsville to WCWA national championships in 2018 and 2020.
A native of Texas, Fowler will help lead the new women’s wrestling program that will compete for the first time this spring, according to U of O Head Wrestling Coach LeRoy Gardner.
“I am excited about Charlotte, and the opportunity for her to add and share her championship experience with our student-athletes,” Gardner said. “She’s a fierce competitor, excellent citizen, and just a great person and role model for our student-athletes. I am just really excited for our student-athletes and her to be around one another day in and day out to learn. I am thrilled that we have this opportunity. I am grateful and thankful for the support and leadership shown in adding this program and now Charlotte from our leadership. Thanks to our Athletic Director Jimmy Clark and our administration for their support of our student-athletes.”
Fowler was a 2018 U23 World Team member, where she was coached by Gardner. He also coached her on the club level at the Ruckus Wrestling Club (USA Wrestling) in Texas and on Texas Women’s National Team at the Junior National Championships.
“I have had the privilege to be a part of coaching Charlotte since her first year wrestling, including in her corner in Romania at U23 Senior Women’s World Championships,” Gardner said. “I am thrilled to see her sit in our athlete’s corner to help them grow.”
Fowler graduated from Campbellsville in 2020 with a degree in business administration. She was a member of the honors program, the Omicron Delta Kappa honors society and served as president of the Chess Club at Campbellsville. She has also been a volunteer youth wrestling coach.
