Wrestling Excellence Fund
The Wrestling Excellence Fund serves as an avenue for individuals to directly invest in the needs of the Jackrabbit Wrestling program above and beyond our traditional operating expenditures. Your support of the Wrestling Excellence Fund is essential to our growth and will help us in our quest of being a perennial top-10 program nationally. All funds raised through the Wrestling Excellence Fund will go directly to projects and needs identified by our coaching staff.
The Wrestling Excellence Fund will position Jackrabbit Wrestling for greater success by providing additional resources to enhance the overall Jackrabbit student-athlete experience. With the combined dedication of our student-athletes, coaching staff, past letterwinners, and donors, there is no doubt in my mind that we will be a perennial power both in the Big 12 and nationally. You will find a detailed listing of our excellence fund goals below. I hope that I can count on you to continue to elevate our program.

Wrestling Excellence Fund Initiatives
In order for us to be able to compete with the best and be a perennial top program in the country, we need to be able to offer the NCAA maximum allowed scholarships. We are not quite there yet, and your support of the Wrestling Excellence Fund will allow us to offer the full 9.9 scholarships.
When our student-athletes come to SDSU, we want them to compete with the best and have a first-class experience. Enhancing our team travel budget allows us to compete on a national level with the best in the country while doing so with a true Division I experience.
Supplement Recruiting Budget
In order for us to find the best student-athletes possible and grow the South Dakota State University name, we need to be able to recruit outside our region, on a national level. Enhancing our recruiting budget will help us reach those regions and student-athletes.
