NCAA Wrestling Championships: Iowa State's David Carr continues torrid run, reaches national finals

ST. LOUIS, Mo. — David Carr has heard all the stories about his dad's legendary Iowa State wrestling career. He's heard about the tough practices and life around Ames. He's heard about the three-straight NCAA titles, and the Olympic bronze medal.

Carr has always viewed his dad's wrestling career as something worth chasing — and, really, as something he wants to ultimately surpass. And this week inside the Enterprise Center, he took a giant step toward authoring his own legendary career.

David Carr, Iowa State's talented sophomore, reached the NCAA finals at 157 pounds, defeating North Carolina State's Hayden Hidlay, 6-4, in the semifinals on Friday night.
