SHERBURN - Payton Anderson, a senior at Martin County West High School, has signed a letter of intent to attend Augustana University and wrestle for the Vikings.

He is a three-time state qualifier for Fairmont/Martin County West.

Anderson placed second at 132 pounds and had a 39-8 record in 2017; qualified at 138 in 2018 and went 37-7; and finished fourth at 145 last year and had a 45-9 record.

"We are excited to welcome Payton to the Augustana wrestling family," said Augustana coach Jason Reitmeier said. "Payton is exactly what we look for in a student-athlete; smart, athletic and tough. Payton comes from a great wrestling program and is a great leader as well. All the coaches look forward to working with Payton next year."

He is the son of Michele Anderson and Jared Anderson and plans to major in Education.
