Mark Lewandowski, a former three-time NCAA division one national qualifier, will join Brian Tucker as the Griffin's assistant wrestling coach.
"We are very excited as a program to be able to announce the hiring of Mark Lewandowski," said Head Coach Brian Tucker. "The skill set and experience he brings to the table will only help this program continue to grow and achieve the success we have set out to accomplish."
As a collegiate wrestler for the University of Buffalo, Lewandowski was a 2011 top twelve finisher among his three trips to the national tournament. He was also named the 2012 National tech fall leader finishing with 11.
His career of success started all the way back in high school, where he was a four-time state place winner in New York out of his home town of Lancaster. He also earned NHSCA Junior National All-American honors in 2007.
While at the University of Buffalo, he wrote his name throughout the program's record book. He won the 2011 MAC Championships. He set a program record with 21 two point near falls in 2011-12, and sits fifth all time in career wins (111).
At Seton Hill, Lewandowski will work primarily with the middleweight wrestlers, while also assisting in recruiting and additional team functions. He graduated in June from the University at Buffalo with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. He will pursue a MBA in sports management while at Seton Hill.
