Compound Clothing is stoked to announce our continued partnership with Shorter University wrestling. At the Compound, we are passionately dedicated to two goals: (1) supporting, promoting, and growing amateur wrestling at all ranks from the youth level to the senior circuit, and (2) producing quality, custom-designed gear for wrestlers’ high-performance lifestyle. Our partnership with the Shorter Hawks wrestling team allows us to do both.
Shorter wrestling is a fledgling program embarking upon only the fourth season of the program’s history. Despite it’s youth, Shorter wrestling has achieved considerable success under Coach Josh Henson. Last year, the Hawks won the National Collegiate Wrestling Association (NWCA) Southeast Conference (SEC) tournament, finishing with six conference champs and two runner-ups. Additionally, the Hawks finished 3rd at the NCWA National Championships, with six All Americans, led by two national champions and 2 runner-ups. Compound Clothing is thrilled to support Shorter Wrestling as they pursue continued success while moving to NCAA Division II this season.
The Shorter wrestling roster is comprised of many athletes from Georgia and across the Southeast—a region where wrestling is growing but has historically lacked opportunities at the collegiate level. At the Compound, we are excited to continue to support the growth of wrestling in our own backyard through our partnership with Shorter.
