May 5, 2013
Legendary wrestling tournament director Ron Mauck has been selected by Wrestling USA Magazine as the 2013 West Virginia Wrestling Man of the Year.
He joins two other upper Ohio Valley mat personalities who were past recipients of the award - Dr. Vince Monseau (1991 & 1994) and Dr. Bill Welker (2001).
Ron Mauck was the tournament director of the OVAC Wrestling Championships, the largest conference mat sport event in the country, from 1979 to 2010. This highly-regarded competition was renamed the Ron Mauck OVAC Wrestling Tournament in 2006 because of his total devotion to Valley matmen. Although he has retired as the OVAC tournament director, Ron Mauck is still heavily involved with wrestling endeavors as a member of many area mat sport committees.
Ron Mauck was also the tournament director for five West Virginia State Wrestling Championships (1979-82-83-86-87) at the former Wheeling Civic Center.
