Take a look at the national Top 20 in college wrestling most years, and you'll see many of the names you'd probably expect to see when it comes to big-time college athletics.
You'll see Penn State and Ohio State, Iowa and Oklahoma State, Michigan and Nebraska. You'll see blockbuster programs backed by multi-million dollar athletic departments. You’ll see some of the most lucrative brands in all of college sports.
And standing right alongside the rest of them, you’ll see the Lehigh Mountain Hawks.
Since the inception of the program all the way back in 1910, the wrestlers of Lehigh have stood toe-to-toe with some of the most powerful athletic departments in the nation. In all, Lehigh wrestlers have won 28 individual national championships and 214 individual league championships, and have earned All-America honors a total of 150 times. With decades of success and a proud legacy dating back more than 100 years, Lehigh enjoys a much-deserved reputation as one of the finest programs in the history of the sport.
