Clare Nicholas & Mitchell Evans
For our first Student Athlete of the Week segment, we jump over to Medina County and meet two Wadsworth Grizzlies.
Clare Nicholas is a junior on the Wadsworth cross country team, and has already made an impact her first two years. She has been a two-time league MVP as well as a state qualifier for cross country, and even placed in the top twenty overall in Ohio. Also in her first two years, she set both team and league records. Academically, Clare maintains a 4.357 GPA.
Senior Mitchell Evans is a big target for the Grizzlies football team, and at 6’7 and 245 lbs., he is literally a big target. In his junior season in 2019, Evans caught 19 passes for seven touchdowns, and he even carried one in as a running back. He took home an honorable mention last year as a tight end. Mitchell carries a 3.5 GPA and has committed to Notre Dame.
