Decorah High School wrestler Phillip Ihde on Tuesday signed a national letter of intent to wrestle at Upper Iowa University.

Ihde has been a three year letter winner at Decorah High School as well as a two-time state qualifier (in 2015 and 2017).  He also was a Northeast Iowa Conference Runner-Up in 2017.

He told after signing his letter that he chose Upper Iowa University because he visited campus and "everything felt right" about the school.
