Senior wrestler Ben Randolph joined the 14 other seniors continuing their athletic career in college, as Tuesday he signed to wrestle at Benedictine. According to Randolph this has been a long process, and a difficult decision to make.
“I’ve been on the fence about them for awhile actually, but I learned they had a lot to offer me academically, and that’s what sold me on it,” said Randolph.
Benedictine is located in Atchinson, Kan. and has been at its current location since 1971. They are only in their second season with a wrestling team, and are looking to get their program up and running. Randolph will be wrestling at 133 lbs, but plans on red-shirting his freshman year. Benedictine has signed a lot of wrestlers from Kansas and Missouri, and Randolph has high hopes for the future.
“We’re going to be the start-up team, which is an experience I’m really excited to be a part of,” Randolph said.
