State wrestling tournament

Billings Senior's Charlie Klepps, top, wrestles Helena's Ching Man Chan in a Class AA 132-pound first-round match at the state wrestling tournament at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark on Friday.

BILLINGS — Charlie Klepps paced the edge of the mats, walking up and down watching the action unfold before him. The Billings Senior star was on deck and would be wrestling next.

Most in the stands probably weren't watching Klepps at that point as 12 matches were going on, but when he took the mat, undoubtedly many fans at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark gazed that way to capture the match.

Klepps is trying to become the 32nd wrestler to win four state championships at this weekend's 29th Montana High School Association State All-Class Wrestling Tournament.
