Early in the morning on Thursday, Sept. 3, 2015, Newman University senior Reece Wright-Conklin died in a motorcycle accident. The 21-year-old member of the Newman Wrestling Team was on his way to a part-time job at PetSmart when the accident occurred. Reece had just recovered from multiple knee surgeries and was excited for his senior season as a healthy athlete. Off of the mat, Reece was always happy and was very driven to accomplish his goals. Reece has touched the lives of so many friends and family members, the Lawrence, KS and Newman University communities, and mostly his wrestling family. Please reach out to Reece's family and help in any way you can to financially support them through this rough time in the coming weeks.
