Inductee ... Lincoln McIlravy, a Philip High School graduate, now lives in Iowa City, Iowa. McIlravy won a 2000 Olympic bronze medal, a 1999 World silver medal and 1998 World bronze medal in freestyle wrestling, and was a three time National Collegiate Athletic Association champion for the University of Iowa.
Lincoln McIlravy, Olympic bronze medalist and past Iowa wrestling star, was inducted as a distinguished member into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame on June 5 in Stillwater, Okla.
"When I was wrestling, I basically stayed focused on my next opponent," said McIlravy. "This honor is something out of your hands. It's a nice finish to my wrestling career."
McIlravy related that Lisa, his wife of almost 17 years whom he met in high school, said this indoctrination was a tremendous honor, a cap to a memorable career.
