The Roland-Story High School wrestling team participated in the 2017 Luther College Team Wrestling Camp in Decorah.

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 1,000 wrestlers from 10-plus states will attend the 2017 Luther College Wrestling Camps throughout July, making the series of camps some of the biggest camps in the country.

Max Thomsen, four time Iowa High School State Champion and All-American wrestler from the University of Iowa, Drew Van Anrooy, Luther class of 2016 and 2016 NCAA Champion at 141 pounds, and Dakota Gray, Luther class of 2016 and 2016 All-American wrestler, served as clinicians for Team Camp II.

Campers at the 2017 camps participated in team building activities, intensive “Train Like a Norseman” sessions, technique sessions and live wrestling sessions. The camp closed with an individual tournament.

Koby Hassebrock and Liam Scheuermann, members of the Norsemen wrestling team, earned Wrestler of the Day honors from Luther camp coach Sam Camacho.

Camacho served as the Roland-Story Camp Coach, providing guidance for wrestlers with quality feedback throughout the camp.

The Roland-Story wrestling team is coached by Leland Schwartz and Doug Sargent. This is the ninth year the Norsemen have attended the camp.

Luther competes in 10 men’s and nine women’s intercollegiate athletic programs as a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division and the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Since joining the Iowa Conference as a charter member in 1922, Luther has dominated the championship scene, winning an unmatched 243 IIAC titles.

Twenty-nine national championships and 338 All-American honors have been earned by Luther student-athletes. Forty-two student-athletes have received the distinguished NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship and 68 student-athletes have been awarded a CoSIDA Academic All-America honor.
