CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Another standout Burns athlete officially found their home to compete at the collegiate level. On Thursday wrestler Baylen Smith signed to continue his athletic career at Waldorf University.

Smith competes in the 126 pound weight class, and compiled a record of 25-16 last season against 3A competition. He also netted a third place finish in the 3A East regional back in February.

Smith said the family atmosphere at Waldorf is what drew him to the program.

“Mainly the coach, good environment there. Felt like home, small town. The coach seems like a second dad to me, I can talk to him about anything. The wrestlers, they’re great there. [They] act like a family, they’ll always be there for you. That’s really it,” Smith said.

Congratulations to Baylen and good luck to him moving forward in his college career.
