Nathan Shearer is entering his 10th season as the head wrestling coach at Washington and Lee University. Although this season promises to be a unique experience, the Generals have a strong team that is looking to improve on the results of even last year’s excellent season. Last season the Generals won the Centennial Conference for the first time in school history, took a team best 2nd in the NCAA region, and won a school record 16 dual meets.

Nathan Shearer was named VASID wrestling coach of the year following the 2019-2020 season and three Generals were named to the NWCA All-American team: seniors Rexx Hallyburton and Shane Conners, and sophomore Ryan Luth.
