Lehigh Mountain Hawks Wrestling TicketsThe Lehigh Mountain Hawks have one of the oldest and most storied programs in NCAA wrestling. The Mountain Hawks played their first season back in 1909-10. Billy Sheridan, originally from Canada, coached the Hawks from 1912-1952 and helped Lehigh wrestling create a long-lasting culture of winning. Among other innovations, Sheridan started some of the first wrestling camps and clinics during the 1930s. Lehigh was a wrestling powerhouse during the Sheridan years. During his tenure as coach, the wrestling team made it to the NCAA final once and hosted it five times. Over the years, Lehigh has been a part of rivalries with Cornell and more recently, Pennsylvania State. Before re-igniting their rivalry in 1996, it had been almost 40 years since Lehigh faced Penn. Today, the Lehigh Mountain Hawks are still a competitive team. Recent NCAA individual titleholders like Zach Rey and Darian Cruz are currently Mountain Hawks wrestlers.
