Rotert takes on wrestling recruiting role at SDSU

BROOKINGS – Former South Dakota State standout Nate Rotert will continue his long association with the Jackrabbit wrestling team by joining the staff as recruiting coordinator.

“Nate has been an integral part to the success of our program and exudes all that is SDSU,” SDSU coach Damion Hahn said. “He will help with our recruiting efforts immensely, and I am proud to bring him aboard.”

A Spearfish native, Rotert was a four-time NCAA qualifier at 197 pounds while wrestling at SDSU from 2015-18, helping spark the Jackrabbits into a nationally ranked program. He compiled a 99-37 career record, including a 50-14 mark in duals. Rotert won a Big 12 Conference individual title en route to a 28-5 mark his senior season.

“I am excited for the future of this program,” Rotert said. “The team is surrounded by first-class leadership and, more importantly, good people. I can’t wait to help continue to build this program, not as a guy on the mat, but in a different role.”

SDSU is scheduled to open the 2018-19 season Nov. 4 by hosting the Warren Williamson/Daktronics Open.
