The Caledonia High School wrestling team recently participated in the 2013 Luther College Team Wrestling Camp in Decorah, Iowa.

The 2013 Luther wrestling camps, directed by Luther head wrestling coach Dave Mitchell, have grown into some of the largest and most recognized camps in the Midwest. In 2013, more than 1,000 athletes participated, representing nearly 70 teams from seven states.

Recent clinicians have included several Olympian, NCAA champion and All-American wrestlers, including Cale Sanderson, Brandon Slay and Brent Metcalf.

Campers at the 2013 event participated in team building activities, intensive “Train Like a Norseman” sessions, technique sessions and live wrestling sessions. The camp closed with an individual tournament.

Eli Craig and Justin Stemper, members of the Warrior wrestling team, earned Wrestler of the Day honors from Luther camp counselor Corey Day.

Day served as Caledonia’s Camp Coach, providing wrestlers with written and verbal feedback throughout the camp.

The Caledonia wrestling team is coached by Head Coach Daniel Goergen and Assistant Coaches Roger Holland, Jeff Winjum and Tanner Benson.

This is the Warriors first time at team camp.
