LEBANON -- Former Olympic medalist and three-time NCAA champion Nate Carr will be the guest instructor at a free wrestling clinic hosted by Lebanon High School Saturday, July 18.

The clinic will be held between the hours of 9 a.m. - 12 Noon in the LHS wrestling room. Experienced middle school and high school wrestlers are welcome to attend at no charge. Athletes should come dressed and prepared to wrestle.

Carr is considered one of the most revered camp clinicians and coaches in the country.

"This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for wrestlers of all ages to hear from one of the true greats," said Blue Devil Wrestling Coach Kyle Mitchell.

"We're very fortunate to have someone like Mr. Carr who is willing to spend time with our kids."

A native of Erie, Pennsylvania, Carr went on to become an NCAA All-American at Iowa State University where he compiled a career record of 117-20-1 in the 150-pound weight class -- winning two Big Eight Conference championships.

In 1986 he won both World Cup and Pan-American Championships before earning a spot on the 1988 United States team where he won a Bronze medal in the Seoul Olympics.

As a member of the USA World Championship team in 1989, he won his weight class in the Goodwill Games in Russia.

He was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2003.
