Senior wrestler Drake Kendrex will be attending West Liberty University to study nursing and continue his wrestling career. During his time at Mt. Vernon, Kendrex was a two-time Hoosier Heritage Conference Champion (2018 – 160lbs, 2019 – 170 lbs.). In addition, Kendrex qualified for semi-state during both his junior and senior seasons, falling in the ticket round this year to the eventual 3rd place finisher at state. Kendrex has played an instrumental part in the resurgence of wrestling at Mt.
