Clovis Wrestlers Eye State Three-Peat

The Clovis High School wrestling team is setting its sights on a piece of history.

The Cougars hope to become just the third team in California ever to win three straight State Championships.

The tradition-rich program boasts 21 Valley Championships and ten state titles. That success has been earned by hard work and dedication.

Steve Tirapelle, in his 16th season as head coach, is hesitant to use the word dynasty to describe his program. But his wrestlers do know there is a tradition to uphold and standards to meet.

After winning their fourth straight Doc Buchanan Invitational, the Cougars have a meet in Temecula this weekend before returning home for next week's showdown with rival Buchanan.
