PHOTOS: Young wrestlers learn skills
Thirty three young wrestlers got an introduction to the sport during a three-day clinic at Solanco’s wrestling building.
The clinic was held July 18 through 20. Varsity and junior high coaches helped the young wrestlers, as did Lock Haven wrestlers Chance Marsteller and Thomas Haines.
The camp is the idea of junior high coach and former varsity assistant coach Tony Mendez.
PHOTOS: New instructor at Rubicon
Dan Neff came to his first Rubicon summer program as a very young wrestler.
Last Thursday, he returned as a guest instructor.
Neff, one of Solanco's most successful wrestlers, spent the day working with younger matmen.
"It's a big transition, teaching kids how to compete at different skill levels," he said. "When you teach, it shows you the mistakes you have been making."
