GREENWOOD – The Lander wrestling program celebrated its first National Signing Day with 10 student-athletes in its first recruiting class that will begin competing in the 2019-20 school year.

"I am very excited for the first crop of recruits in Lander wrestling history," said head coach RC LaHaye.

GREENWOOD – The Lander wrestling program will add six more freshmen to its first incoming recruiting class, head coach R.C. LaHaye has announced.

"This group of student-athletes represents some of the best wrestlers not only locally, but nationally," said LaHaye. "I am extremely excited to add this group of future Bearcats to our program. This group represents not just great wrestlers, but great student-athletes who want to join the culture that we are building here at Lander. I am also excited to welcome three student-athletes from our home state of South Carolina to the Bearcat family. The past few years, some of the best local athletes have been headed out of state to compete. We want to be a home for the best kids in South Carolina."
