TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Terre Haute North senior Sammy Saunders signed with Wabash College on Friday afternoon at North High School. He will wrestle for the Little Giants, following in his father’s footsteps. Sammy was a major contributor to the Patriots squad and recalled his favorite memory while there.
“Winning my Friday morning match at state the state finals won a match to place and that was probably the highlight of my career it’s what I’ve been wanting to do for the past since 2013 I wrote in a book that I was going to be a state placer and just a couple months ago that happened and it was a pretty surreal moment to win that and then the following night stand on the podium on spotlight on TV is pretty cool,” he said. Saunders also has some former teammates who wrestle at the college and will reunite with them next season.
