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.

received fresh impetus in the high schools this year. Although there
was no loop last year, Coach "Pete" McKay had boys working out all

The East matsmen breezed through more than half of their schedule
with wins, but tough breaks near the end caused them to end up tied
for second place with West. Tech occupied the top rung.
Oriental grapplers showed their worth when they copped three of nine
championships in the Interscholastic Individual Wrestling
Tournament. Tech men won four titles; Charlotte and West, each one.
East matmen crowned champions in their respective classes are:
Morris Shapiro, scrappy 105-pounder; Anthony Mitrano, 147-pounder;
and Norman Millard of the 175-pound division. (The Orient,
