NDSU All-Access has released the fifth and final episode of “Steven Monk: On the Brink”, a season-long video documentary covering Bison senior wrestler Steven Monk, who finished third at the NCAA Championships at 165 pounds.
The final episode follows Monk in his run through the NCAA Championships in Oklahoma City from March 20-22. He placed third to record the highest national finish in NDSU’s Division I era, capping his career with a pin of No. 2-ranked Nick Sulzer of Virginia.
A three-time NCAA Championships qualifier, Monk went 36-2 this season including a perfect 18-0 mark in duals for the Bison. Monk’s career record stands at 134-24 — giving him the second-most wins ever by a Bison wrestler and the seventh-best winning percentage in school history. He won 90 of his final 100 matches.
All documentary episodes are available on the NDSU Athletics YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/ndsuathletics).
NDSU All-Access followed Monk from preseason drills through the NCAA Championships, as the Wausau, Wis., native captured his first NCAA All-America honor. The documentary delves into all aspects of Monk’s life and provides a behind-the-scenes look at one of the nation’s top wrestlers.
