ArmDrag.com is looking for volunteers to help populate the Archives.
We're not only looking for results, but tournament brackets, photos, and
articles as well. Many college and public libraries have microform copies
of complete newspapers dating back over 100 years. In them, you can find
lots of wrestling results. If you enjoy doing research, and you have some time,

ArmDrag Note: This appears to be an article written the day of the first
ever interscholastic wrestling match in Rochester. ArmDrag has been
unable to locate the results of this meet.
