Sheridan Wrestler to Wrestling Team

Kent State University at Tuscarawas is announcing the signing of a Sheridan High School graduating senior to their wrestling team. On May 11, Lane Householder signed a Letter of Intent to wrestle for the Kent State Tuscarawas Golden Eagles Wrestling Team.

Householder was a three-year letter winner for the Generals wrestling team. He was an Ohio High School Athletic Association State Wrestling Tournament qualifier this year, while compiling a 42-11 record and pinning 32 of his opponents during his final season on the mat for Sheridan High School. Householder is a two-time Muskingum Valley League (MVL) Champion and placed second in the district for two straight years. He earned 80 wins over his last two wrestling seasons and 93 varsity wins overall in three years at Sheridan. He was also a MVL First Teamer in football during his senior season after earning an Honorable Mention his junior year. He has made the Honor Roll in all four years of high school and was named Scholar Athlete during his junior and senior years.  Householder plans to earn a Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies with a focus on computing.

“Kent State Tuscarawas is very honored to have Lane coming to represent our campus on the mat and as a student,” said Dave Schlarb, Head Wrestling Coach for Kent State Tuscarawas. “He is very athletic and a real student of the sport. His technique is second to none and his attention to the little things has made him successful in sports and more importantly in the classroom. It’s safe to say that Lane will continue on an upward trajectory and his willingness to be part of a first-year program is evidence that he really loves wrestling and will use this opportunity to advance the sport he loves.”

Kent State Tuscarawas is a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA).
