Former Iowa Hawkeye wrestler Topher Carton has been named as an Assistant Wrestling Coach at the University of Mary. Carton began his new position on August 1 at the University of Mary, a D-II college in Bismarck, North Dakota.

Carton was an NCAA National Qualifier for the University of Iowa in 2017 at 141 lbs. and was a four year varsity letter winner.

It is always great to see the Iowa Wrestling Coaching Tree grow.  I am confident Topher Carton will be successful at whatever he pursues.

Best of luck to Topher Carton.  An Iowa Hawkeye.

It is great to be an Iowa Wrestling fan.

Go Hawks!
