The Lehigh Wrestling Tradition and the Club
Lehigh opens its 2016-17 season with a line-up that will likely feature a combination of experience, with 3 returning All-Americans, and rising talent from some exceptional recruiting classes that are sure to excite our fans. The club exists for you as a vehicle to help support one of the winningest collegiate programs in the history of this ancient sport. Ranking 6th all time in NCAA individual titles, Lehigh is also in the National Top Ten in All-Americans and attendance. This year's home schedule will be highlighted with visits from traditional rivals Bucknell, Drexel, Penn, Princeton and Army along with clashes with Top Ten teams Cornell and Virginia Tech. The club is planning numerous social events before and after many of these matches, along with the Annual Club Picnic on September 11th, bus trips to several away matches and dinners both at the EIWA and NCAA tournaments. Assistance in obtaining rooms for the tournaments is provided. The Club is one of the largest and most vibrant in the Nation with over 1.000 members last year. It is only with your suport that we can continue to promote and build upon our great tradition.
