Three Clear Lake wrestlers have advanced to the District wrestling meet this Saturday at Forest City. Ryan Schmalen (106), Matt Bieber (120) and Logan Kellogg (182) will all compete for the chance to go to State. The top two finishers from Saturday’s Sectional meet at Algona qualified for Districts. Action will begin at noon in Forest City.
