“All of the kids at this camp seemed like they were having fun,” said former Bears great and instructor Carson Gracia. “We showed them some advanced stuff and they caught on very fast.”
Another instructor, Sonora Wildcat graduate Jordan DePaoli who finished 10th in the 2006 State Meet, said, “I was impressed with how eager this group of kids were to learn. Camps like this are excellent because kids get to learn various styles from different teachers.”
“What I was most pleased with is all the individual attention each of the kids received,” said Bears head coach Dave Gracia. “All the kids were serious about wrestling and it all worked out very well.”
