To date the wrestling
team has suffered five losses to one win. The losses were handed out in the
Edison, Madison, Charlotte, Jefferson, and East matches, while the win was
achieved in the Franklin meet. To four of the team go special recognition for
their mat ability. Steve Constantine, undefeated this year, is a favorite for
the 175 lb. class championship. Lou Baxter last year held the heavy weight title
and is favored to repeat the feat. Jack Otto and Bernie Frati are noted for
their speed and deception on the canvas. (Monrolog, 1947)
