Orndorff has won 16 of his last 20 matches. He took second place in the Pac-10 Championships. He won both his matches on the last weekend of the regular season, beating Oregon's Rich Polkinghorn 10-6 and Boise State's Jeremy Clayton 4-0. Orndorff showed he'd recovered from a minor knee injury at the ASICS Oregon Wrestling Classic Dec. 28-29 at OSU, placing third at the Classic, going 3-1 with one match termination. That was his first competition in three weeks. Orndorff placed fourth in the Sheridan Tournament at Lehigh on Dec. 7 with a 2-2 record, but that's misleading. Orndorff was leading in the final round of the third-place match when a knee injury forced him to default. Orndorff won the championship of the non-scoring Southern Oregon Open earlier this year. He was a state champion at Kent-Meridian High School, also an all-state and two-time all-league football offensive and defensive lineman, lettered in track and field and served as student body president. His brother Dave was an OSU All-American.
