DONALDSON, IN – Tondrew Tyler, a senior at George Washington High School, recently signed his National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Letter of Intent to wrestle at Ancilla College.
Tyler is a four year varsity award recipient and wrestled in the 125 and 133 weight class. He was an NIC Conference Champion, Sectional Champion, Sectional Runner-Up and Region Qualifier. During his time at Washington under head coach Tony McWilliams, Tyler was also a Semi-State Qualifier.
“I am happy to sign Tondrew to the Ancilla Wrestling Program,” said head coach Steve VanDerAa. “He comes from a solid program and brings plenty of fire to our team.”
“It has been awesome watching Tondrew grow from a middle school wrestler to where he is now,” remarked Washington head coach Tony McWilliams. “He is an awesome student athlete and we wish him the best at Ancilla.”
When asked why he felt Ancilla was the right choice for him, Tyler responded, “I thought it would be a great fit for me because it offers a small, family like atmosphere with the opportunity to be a part of and build a new wrestling program.”
Tondrew is the son of Lakesha Tyler. While attending Ancilla, he plans to study Theology and Sports Management.
