|Progress selects Wrestler of the Year|
It takes a lot of hard work for any high school athlete to qualify for a state tournament as an individual, something only one Paulding County freshman had ever accomplished in wrestling.
Wayne Trace’s George Clemens became the second freshman to do so this year and was selected as the Paulding County Progress 2012-13 Paulding County Wrestler of the Year in voting by the county coaches and media.
Clemens posted an impressive record of 46-3 on the season and set school records in victories, consecutive wins and best season winning percentage.
“There has only been one other freshman to accomplish this in Paulding County,” noted Raider head coach George Clemens. “His goal is to be a four-time state qualifier. It’s pretty phenomenal for him to be able to qualify as a freshman.”
