MOUNTAIN VIEW – Saturday afternoon at the WHSAA 3A West Regional wrestling championships in Rees Fieldhouse at MVHS, Mountain View senior Drake Menck was the only valley wrestler to capture a regional championship.

Going into the tournament as the number one seed at 182 pounds with a varsity season record of 39 – 4, Menck pinned Lander’s Jason Hanson :32 seconds into the second round with a head and arm throw.

In the tournament, Menck had a first round bye, followed by a first round pin of Brannen Hedden of Lander. Chris Erickson of Star Valley, the eventual third place winner, injury defaulted to Menck in the semi-final round without stepping onto the mat.
