The 2018 Nittany Lion Wrestling Club Golf Outing has come to an end! Check back next year for date and information on sponsoring the 2019 Golf Classic!

About the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club

The Nittany Lion Wrestling Club’s goal is to be the premier wrestling club in the United States! The NLWC has been designated as a U.S. Olympic Regional Training Center and conducts practices in the Penn State Wrestling Room in the Lorenzo Wrestling Complex.

The goal of the NLWC Golf Classic is to raise money specifically for the Club’s Resident Athlete Program. The Resident Athlete Program is comprised of elite wrestlers whom the NLWC coaching staff has recruited to live in Central Pennsylvania and train at the NLWC Regional Olympic Training Center. This program is designed to provide the coaching, training environment, and financial support necessary for these individuals to compete for and win Olympic and World Championships.

Resident Athletes for the NLWC during the 2018-19 Season are Josh Rodriguez, Jordan Conaway, Zain Retherford, Franklin Gomez, Ben Provisor, David Taylor, and Riley Lefever. These wrestlers are former NCAA National Champions and All-Americans and are some of the top athletes in the world. For the upcoming season, the NLWC may also add some additional wrestlers to the Resident Athlete roster. The NLWC is very proud to be represented by these fine young men, both on and off of the mat!

The above athletes are coached by Cael Sanderson, Cody Sanderson, Casey Cunningham, Jake Varner, Mark McKnight, and Eric Thompson whom comprise the NLWC Resident Athlete Program and U.S. Olympic Regional Training Center coaching staff. These coaches are widely recognized as the best in the world and have done an incredible job of developing the wrestlers in the Resident Athlete Program.
