Golden Eagle $99 or More Scholarship Initiative 2018
Student-athletes need a lot of support to be successful in their sport and in the classroom. Faced with this challenge last year, the Golden Eagle $99 or More Wrestling Scholarship Initiative was created. Our wrestling supporters greeted this effort enthusiastically, and donations exceeded our expectations. Together we raised over $38,000 in scholarship money, and I thank all who made it possible. Based on the generosity of our donors last year, we are raising the goal to $40,000 this year.
Maintaining our scholarship commitments is vital to our success, so I invite you to join this year’s $99 or More Scholarship Initiative. My staff and I are committed to building a NCAA top-25 contender, and last season's individual and team successes testify that we are moving in a positive direction:
- 10-7 dual record – first winning season in 15 years
- Four NCAA Tournament qualifiers
- Carlson Cup Team Award for academic excellence
- Two 2018 NWCA Academic All-Americans
- PSAC team runners-up
- Final NWCA Mid-Major ranking – #19 nationally
The 2018 incoming class boasts 20 individual state place winners; seven individual state champions; three NHSCA All-Americans; three Flo Nationals All-Americans; and one Super 32 place winner.
Your donation of $99 or more (more maximizes your impact) will be used to award scholarships to deserving student-athletes. As a thank you, donors receive a membership card good for admission to all home, regular season wrestling contests, valued at $35. You can decline this benefit to make your entire gift tax deductible.
