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,
make a trip to the library and check it out. Ask a librarian how to get
started and how to print out the articles that you find.
Coach: Mr. Emil Hulek
1923-24 West Occidentals Wrestling Team
NAMES UNKNOWN. (SOURCE: Senior
Annual, West High, 1924.)
Wrestling, which is a
new sport in the Rochester Schools, sprung into prominence this year in the
development of a very clever team by Coach Hulek.
In the first meet we
lost to East High by one bout when Shantz
broke his collar bone. After much practice and some real hard workouts the team
defeated Charlotte by eight bouts to none and the following week defeated Kodak
six bouts to none.
There have been many
candidates for the team this year as it is now considered a major sport and
"W's" are awarded to members of the squad who take part in a meet. This sport
should develop rapidly in West High. (Senior Annual, West High, 1924)

wrestlers took the second step towards the winning of the city
championship yesterday afternoon when they defeated West High grapplers
by the score 28 to 16. The meet was close throughout, with first the
East Siders winning a match and then the Occidentals. The outcome of the
meet depended on the final match, which was between Krepeck,
of East High and Bishop, of West.
Krepeck, however, who brought honors upon his shoulders in the first mat
contest of the season by defeating Bartholomeo,
of Technical High, repeated his act yesterday afternoon by throwing the
Genesee Street lad in three minutes and thirty-five seconds.
East High was
handicapped by the loss of two of its men from the team due to sickness.
Paine was unable to wrestle because of the grippe, while Fetterly
was out because of an injury sustained to the head, during the Geneva
High meet. The big fight of the meet was furnished by Captain
Bill Meyers of the Orientals, and
Sandholzer, of West, and extra period
being necessary to decide the winner. Meyers finally gained the fall
from his man when he applied the half Nelson and the crotch hold.
The meet was
witnessed by the largest crowd that has turned out to see a scholastic
mat tournament between two schools. The boys gymnasium of East High
School was filled to capacity and it was required to turn a number away
because of lack of room. Bonifiglio
and Meriano were the new men to
substitute for the sick East High contenders. Dick Daviscourt
acted as one of the judges of the meet.
