Lander unveils first wrestling signing class, featuring 10 signees:

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. “We have searched nationwide to find the best student-athletes possible to lay the foundation for the Bearcat wrestling program and I believe we have found them. The future for Lander wrestling looks very bright. As excited as we are about this first group, we are still recruiting hard all the way through the spring of 2019 and are still looking for student-athletes who want to be a part of something special as we build the Lander wrestling program.”
