Park extended his streak of wins by fall to five straight on Saturday, pinning opponents from both VMI and Davidson as Clarion improved to 5-3 on the season. He started by flattening the Keydets’ Clifton Conway just 39 seconds into their bout as the Golden Eagles claimed a 30-12 team victory.

More impressively, Park opened Clarion’s 36-3 decision over Davidson with a record-breaking pin of Michael McLellan. He defeated McLellan in just 12 seconds, setting a new program record for fastest win by fall. The previous record was 13 seconds, set by Jack Campbell during the 1976-77 season.

Park has won six straight bouts with the last five all coming by fall. He owns a 14-7 overall record as Clarion goes into EWL competition this weekend against George Mason.

MRAZ NAMED FR. OF THE WEEK FOR SIXTH STRAIGHT TIME
