Sartor Named Erskine College New Men’s Basketball Coach

Erskine College announced on Monday afternoon the hiring of Lee Sartor as the new head men’s basketball coach. Sartor replaces Mark Peeler, who will become the school’s full-time athletic director. Sartor coached the past fifteen years at Spartanburg Day School where he won three South Carolina Independent Schools Association state championships. Sartor coached the nation’s top-rated high school player and Duke signee, Zion Williamson at Spartanburg Day.

“As I look to the future of our program, I am encouraged that Mr. Lee Sartor has agreed to join the Erskine athletic staff as our new head basketball coach. Coach Sartor brings a great deal of experience from his outstanding coaching career at Spartanburg Day School, and I look forward to the years ahead as he leads Erskine’s basketball program,” commented Erskine College President Rob Gustafson.

Sartor will inherit a team that returns four of its top five scorers form last season.  This includes All-Conference selection Austin Venable who led the team with 15.6 points and 7.5 rebounds per game as well as Jordan Watson who averaged 12.4 points per game.
