You could call it "Wrestling 101".
The Rubicon Introduction to Wrestling Camp, held in the Solanco wrestling room July 23-25, is designed to teach the basics to kids entering kindergarten through sixth grade.
Solanco Elementary Wrestling program coaches served as the lead clinicians for the camp, which is free for Solanco students.
Dan Neff credits the Solanco wrestling program with setting him on a successful course and providing some of his fondest memories.
He's ensuring current Mules have the same opportunity.
Neff, Solanco's first PIAA champion and an NCAA Division I All-American, was a featured instructor at Solanco's annual Rubicon wrestling clinic last Wednesday through Friday.
Four Solanco wrestlers are headed to Hershey.
Dominic Flatt, Chase Charles, Jackson Houghton, and Ronnie Fulton each advanced by virtue of a top four finish at the District III Class 3A Section II tournament at Hempfield High School.
"I was happy to have four guys qualify for districts but was also hoping two or three more guys would have finished higher than their seeds and qualify," Solanco coach Tony Mendez said. "The district tournament will be tough but we're hoping to get one or two guys through to states."
The Solanco wrestling team ended its home and league dual meet season in style.
The Mules mauled McCaskey 52-6 Wednesday night, January 23.

Going into the season coach Tony Mendez knew the season would be a challenge. “We are lacking experience,” wrote Mendez. “We lost seven seniors last year and with that lost a lot of experience. Losing Jackson Houghton doesn’t help as well.” The sophomore was nursing an injured hand and returned later in the week.
