Grapplers dominated the mats as they won the Oakland Country Wrestling Championship, Dec. 21.
“It’s always a big tournament in Oakland County,” said Joe Wood, head coach for Clarkston Varsity Wrestling. “There’s tough teams in our county. Oxford is always good, Rochester Adams is good. We welcome the competition, and we are excited to be part of such a wrestling rich area.”
