The Glass Eye: Clearfield Wrestling Preview

 

The Bison wrestling team has enjoyed tremendous success over the past decade and particularly over the last six seasons, but 2011-12 unquestionably shapes up as a rebuilding year. However, there is some returning talent – Clearfield returns two district champs in Christian Stone and Nolan Barger, and Dylan Graham also had a strong 2010-11 campaign.

 

The rest of the lineup is extremely inexperienced, and there will be growing pains as the squad grinds through a very difficult schedule. Please watch the video podcast above to hear head coach Jeff Aveni’s thoughts on the upcoming campaign.

 

Clearfield opens their season this weekend in Williamsport at the Top Hat tournament, and their first dual meet is Tuesday, Dec. 13th at D-9 favorite Dubois. You can hear that match and all Clearfield regular-season dual meets on 93.1FM WQYX.
