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.

WRESTLING AT ONONDAGA VALLEY ― MARCH 10, 1926

High School News, Vol. XXX, No. 2, Geneva High School
May 1926

The Geneva High wrestling team lost its initial match of the season to the powerful Onondaga Valley team in the latter's home port by a 26-5 score. Price, 118 lb. star for Geneva, was the only one to score for his team, getting 5 points on a fall. Onondaga won 4 falls and 2 decisions from the inexperienced Genevans. In scoring, 5 points are awarded for a fall and 4 for a decision. Onondaga was unable to produce men for the 105 and 175 lb. weights but agreed to have an extra bout in the 120 lb. class. For this bout, Ungerer was taken along for Geneva. The summary of the match:

In the 112 lb. class, Price of Geneva won a fall from Strait of Onondaga in 5 minutes and 15 seconds.

Connely of Onondaga did double duty for his team, taking the 125 lb. weight from Cook and the 135 lb. class from Wagner. Cook's shoulders were pinned in 4 minutes of fast play after Connely had thrown Wagner.

In the extra 120 lb. class Anderson of Onondaga threw Ungerer of Geneva in 4 minutes with a wrist lock and head hold.

In the 145 lb. class, Howard Johnson, the other veteran on the team, lost a decision to Dyer of Onondaga at the end of 6 minutes.

Lastly, in the 160 lb. class, Tom Baroody of Geneva lost a decision to Pierce, the full-blooded Indian with Onondaga. This bout also went the limit only to be won by the superior experience of the Indian.

The Geneva High wrestling team lost its second and final match of the season to the strong Onondaga Valley High School team at Geneva by a 18-9 score. This was a much better showing than the one Geneva made at Syracuse the week before, when it lost to the same team by a 26-5 score. Howard Johnson secured a fall and Price, a decision, to make the total points for Geneva. The best Onondaga could secure was two falls and two decisions.
