The United States Olympic Education Center’s Greco-Roman team is hosting a camp with the U.S. Marine Corps this week and next.

The Marine team makes the 23- hour drive up to Marquette from their base in Camp Lejeune, N.C., at least once a year to train at the Olympic Education Center.

Amongst the USMC team will be ranked athletes, including Donovan DePatto at 60 kg and Steve Forrest at 74 kg. Both ranked top seven in the U.S. Wrestling February Greco-Roman releases.

In the top fourth and fifth rankings are senior Paul Tellgren (55 kg) and sophomore Kendrick Saunders (74 kg).
