LinksSIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Augustana wrestling head coach Jason Reitmeier announced the signing of Steven Hajas Jr. to the 2018 recruiting class. The addition of Hajas Jr. brings the class to 13 total signees which includes 12 high school students and one junior college transfer.
Hajas Jr., a Delano, Minnesota native, will wrestle at heavyweight for the Vikings and was a three-year letterwinner at Delano Senior High School. As a senior, he compiled a 33-3 record, with 22 of those victories coming via the pin. Hajas Jr. won the Findley Invite, the North Branch Invite, and the Section 2AA championship. He earned a second place finish at the Minnesota High School State Tournament and earned Academic All-State 2nd team honors.
“We are excited to sign another big guy with Steven’s ability. Steven has had a lot of high school success and we feel he will carry that over into his college career,” Reitmeier said. “Steven is what I would call an Augie kid. He’s super bright and motivated to succeed both athletically and academically. Steven adds to an already talented group coming in this fall.”
