Cheatham County Wrestling Club (CCWC) took 10 wrestlers to Bettendorf, Iowa July 17 - 20, 2022, for the "Train Like A Norseman Wrestling Camp." At the camp, wrestlers received instruction from Olympians and NCAA Champions, Miles Amine from Michigan and Keegan O'Toole from Missouri, along with other college wrestlers and coaches.


During the first three days of the camp, the wrestlers competed against teams from IA, IL, MN, and WI in team building games, wrestled in 10 dual meets, and trained in exercises the Luther College wrestlers do regularly.


The CCWC team finished in 10th place out of 14 teams. Luke London and Sumner Boyd earned "Wrestler of the Day" honors; London also took first place in the best wrestling throwing contest, and Tyler Knight took third.


On the last day of the camp, the wrestlers competed in an individual tournament. CCWC wrestlers (pictured above left to right): Daniel White 4th place, Adan Alvarez- 3rd place, Landon Morris - did not wrestle, Tyler Knight - 3rd place, Andrew Pate - 6th place, Sumner Boyd - 4th place, Luke London - 1st place, Justin Andrews - 6th place, Ethan Steele - did not wrestle, and Caden Ospina - 5th place.


"Wrestlers enjoyed the camp, learned new wrestling techniques, made new friends, experienced new things, and had fun," coaches say. "We are extremely proud of the accomplishments and hard work these young men are doing in the off season."
