As a manager: Matmen has noticed Clouse’s work ethic for the past three seasons at events where Nease has competed. She has been, effectively, the lead manager for at least the past two years, handling scoring, event administration and both basic and advanced tasks for the coaches with flawless efficiency.

Favorite wrestler: Sean Arnold.
Favorite athlete (non-wrestler): Dak Prescott.
Best tournament/dual experience: “One of the other managers and I were talking, and I commented on how jacked one of the 170s from another school was, and she thought I said ‘Indian’ and his name was ‘Jacked.’ We went back and forth for five minutes going, ‘Indian?’ ‘Jacked.’ ‘Indian???’ ‘JACKED’.”
Favorite thing about managing: “Meeting all the new amazing people.”
Least favorite thing about managing: “Early mornings, but I know I will miss them.”
Something we think we know about wrestlers but we really don’t is: “Some of them are actually really smart.”
When not running this sport, I am most likely… : At the beach with friends, or asleep.
Coach Craig Muckle on Clouse: “Cayse is a wild child, but she works hard. I have had Cayse for three years and she has been dedicated to the team! I have a great team of managers, and she is the senior of the group.”
