Frank Vulcano, Sr passes away
« on: May 22, 2018, 10:08:00 PM »

The wrestling world lost a giant today as Frank Vulcano, Sr. passed away today on his 89th birthday.  Senior was the founder of what is now the PowerADE Christmas Wrestling Classic, one of the top three schoolboy wrestling tournaments in the nation.  When Mr. Vulcano was head coach at California State Teachers College (now CalU), he started the tournament, ran it there until CalU dropped wrestling, then handed the reins over to Frank Jr. who has run it ever since.  Condolences to the Vulcano family on this loss and a huge THANK YOU to Frank Vulcano, Sr. for his dedication to and vision for the sport of high school wrestling.
