2x State Champion Noah North has been named the 2017 South Carolina recipient for the Dave Schultz Award for Excellence. The award was established in the mid-1990’s and is voted on by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame each season to honor one senior wrestler from each of the 50 states. The award is in recognition of superior wrestling accomplishments, outstanding academic performance, as well as valued community service. In addition, Lugoff-Elgin becomes the first school in SC to have four winners of the award! This breaks a previous tie with Eastside and Summerville, who have each had three winners of the award. Previous L-E wrestlers to win were Ben Connell (2000), Ryan McClester (2001), and David Catoe (2005).
