Intermountain Conference Under the new format in 1959, Redmond became the first A-1 state championship team. Redmond also became the first team from eastern Oregon to win a state title. The team did it with three champions. Clarence Seal won his second of three titles in 1959. Marvin Gage and Jim Ricci also won individual championships. There might have been four Redmond champions if Ken Stanton hadn't lost in the finals to Milt Fyre of Portland's Cleveland High. Stanton was a two-time state champion, having won titles as a 98 pound fresh- man and as a 123 pound junior. As a senior wrestling at 136 pounds, up two more weight classes from the year before, he had to settle for second place. Redmond's performance at the state tournament was the best any Intermountain team has had. It was ten years before another eastern team won the state title. In 1969, Crook County of Prineville did it beating out rival Redmond for top honors at both the district and state meets. Both teams had a state cham- pion, but Crook County had two runners- up. Redmond's state champion that year was Jerry Corwin who won his second state crown at 123 pounds. Crook County won another state title in 1975, but it was at the Double-A level. In 1978, La Grande won the state crown, beating out defending champion Estacada 94.5-90.5. They did it with one champion, Dave Long, one other finalist, and three other placers. At this same tournament, Lance Wilson of Pendleton won his first of two state champion- ships. La Grande did it again in 1996, beating out Newberg and Eagle Point who tied for second. From 1980-1982, the league was at it's strongest in state competition. No state team titles were won during this time, though. Pendleton took a second and La Grande took third all three years. Two of those year, the league had four individual champions. The 1982 league showing was among the best ever among Triple-A schools. With four champions, a like number of seconds and ten others making the top six, the league had placers in every weight but one. Ed Woodburn of La Grande was one of the champions, taking his second crown at 98 pounds.In 1988, the league was again the strongest in the state with six finalists, two of them champions. Triple Crown winners from this league have in- cluded heavyweights Richard Chandler, Redmond; Dave Maley, Crook County; and Dave Boor, Pendleton. Some outstanding wrestlers not previously mentioned have been Curt Berger, Crook County; Mark Woosley, Bend; and Miles Hancock and Randy Schimmel, Pendleton.
