“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.
