Las Vegas, Nev. - The Western Junior freestyle competition concluded Saturday morning at The South Point Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Western Junior Regionals is an automatic qualifier for the Cadet/Junior National Championships in Fargo, N.D. on July 12-20.

Among those winners is double champion Drew Bennett of Iowa, who got a decision over Jack Huffman of Nebraska, 13-6. Bennett won the Western Regional Greco-Roman championships early in the week as part of the U.S. Open Championships.
