Coach Logan Register on Clark: “Tanner Clark had an awesome season this year; he finished with a 34-9 record. He is an extremely hard worker in the wrestling room and in the classroom. When he puts his mind to something, Tanner can achieve anything. He was one of the team captains this year and showed great leadership. Every time he stepped on the mat this year, he gave it his all and with so much aggression. Clark only wrestled for three years, and in those three years he qualified for the state tournament twice.”
Parents: Chris & Katie Clark, Live Oak.
The Pacesetter feature will return after the first week of wrestling has concluded in December. Thank you for your support!
