SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Spartanburg Methodist College announced the hiring of Robbie Higdon to coach the men's wrestling team.

Higdon plans to build on the successes the Pioneers have made during their first three seasons of intercollegiate wrestling and to seek higher national rankings.

He was also on the wrestling team at UNC-Pembroke, where he was a two-time qualifier and All-American.

Higdon has a Masters Degree in Teaching from Carson-Newman and a Bachelor's Degree in Health and Physical Education from UNC-Pembroke.

He currently teaches physical education at Holly Springs-Motlow Elementary School and resides in Spartanburg with his wife Carmen and their three-year-old son Robert Paul "Bo."

SMC has 13 intercollegiate athletic teams and has had athletic representation at National Championships, Regional and divisional Championships and World Series Appearances. Now in its 95th year of providing a quality education to students in a Christian environment, SMC is the only private two-year residential college in South Carolina.
