COLUMBIA, Mo. - Fresh off becoming the first individual state champion in Blair Oaks history, Craig Clark dashed into the stands and covered a sizeable portion of Mizzou Arena. He eventually found members of his family and the celebration was truly under way.
"They were all here, a lot of the family," said the senior, who wrapped up his career Saturday night with a Class 1 championship at 170 pounds.
And while it was an individual title, Clark wasn't about to characterize it as an individual accomplishment.
Clark's effort was part of a second-place team finish for the Falcons, as Blair Oaks took another step toward its eventual goal of a state title.
