BUTTE, Mont. — A bout of mono two years ago cost Michael Godfrey some success at the Western Regionals Wrestling Tournament.

"I didn't do very well. I was two and out," Godfrey said this week while preparing for this year's tournament in Butte. "I was sick, though. I had mono. That didn't help."

Godfrey, wrestling in the schoolboy class for 13-14-year-olds, will compete at the Western Regionals this week with younger brother Andy and John Tuck. Michael will wrestle at 140 pounds in both Greco Roman and freestyle classes. Andy is a 105-pound novice in freestyle, while John is a 90-pound novice in freestyle and Greco.

Tuck competed at regionals last year and fared well. He was fourth in freestyle in the 87-pound midget division and fifth in Greco.

He doesn't know if he will do as well this year.

"Maybe not because I'm on the younger side" of the novice division, he said.

About 2,300 wrestlers from 10 Western states compete at the tournament, billed as the largest youth wrestling tournament the world, according to Chris Tuck, John's father and a coach for the La Grande Wrestling Club wrestlers.

By contrast, 300 wrestlers competed at the state meet earlier this year. John won state titles in Greco and freestyle, and Michael won a state Greco championship. Michael was fourth in freestyle, while Andy was third in freestyle at state.

The top six in each division qualified for regionals.

The Greco wrestlers will compete Wednesday and Thursday, while the freestyle competition is Friday and Saturday.
