Fourteen members of the Sharon High and Junior High wrestling team attended the USMC Sports Leadership Academy’s “USMC Built to Lead Wrestling Clinic” hosted by Mt. Lebanon High School recently.
The clinic included more than 80 wrestlers from western Pennsylvania and and eastern Ohio.
The day rotated between four wrestling technique sessions with area coaches, including Sharon’s David Ciafre and Jordan Templeton. The other four sessions were leadership talks by U.S. Marines.
At the end of the day, the Marines selected a seven-member All-Leadership Team and 4 Sharon matmen were selected: Luke Gaston, Sully Allen, Cameron Bliss, and Sam Stephenson. In addition, the area coaches selected Gaston as the MVP Wrestler.
