ST. LOUIS, Missouri (KCRG) - Iowa advanced three wrestlers to the championship round on Friday. Spencer Lee (125 pounds) will compete for his third NCAA championship. He’s hoping to becomes just the sixth wrestler in program history to win three national titles.

Also wrestling on Saturday night for the Hawkeyes will be Jacob Eierman (141) and Michael Kemerer (174).

Iowa State’s David Carr also advanced to the championship round at 157 pounds after defeating Minnesota’s Brayton Lee 6-4 in the semi-finals on Friday. Carr is hoping to become a national champion just like his father, Nate, who won three national championships at Iowa State from 1981-83.
