LARP wrestling team participates in Luther's Team Wrestling Camp

The LARP High School wrestling team participated in the 2019 Luther College Team Wrestling Camp in Decorah, Iowa.

The Luther wrestling camps, directed by Luther Head Wrestling Coach Dave Mitchell, have grown into some of the largest and most recognized athletic camps in the Midwest. More than 800 wrestlers from 8-plus states attended the 2019 Luther College Wrestling Camps throughout July, making the series of camps some of the biggest camps in the country.

Drew Foster, NCAA Champion wrestler from the University of Northern Iowa, and Lee Fullhart, NCAA champion and four-time All-American from the University of Iowa, served as clinicians for Team Camp II.

Campers at the 2019 camps wrestled 10-plus matches and also participated in team building activities, and intensive "Train Like a Norseman" sessions.  The camp closed with an individual tournament, where tournament champions who went undefeated throughout camp were given a ‘Luther Wrestling Camp Outstanding Wrestler’ singlet. 

Christian Mejia, Ross Herber and Carter Jonsgaard members of the Screamn' Eagles LARP wrestling team, earned Wrestler of the Day honors after being nominated by Luther camp coach Christian Mejia.

Mejia served as the LARP Camp Coach, providing guidance and coaching for campers throughout camp giving campers quality feedback.

The LARP wrestling team is coached by Tim Tekautz and Darrin Hegland. The team has been attending Luther wrestling team camps for 13 years.

13 national championships, 12 NCAA runner-up honors and 98 All-American honors have been earned by Luther student-wrestlers.
