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.

With only a few of last year's squad returning, the wrestling team had a rather
poor season this year. The Raiders won three matches and lost seven. Ken Lewis,
Leroy Brenner, and Melvin Perry sparked the team's hopes by becoming Bi County
champions. With the young squad shaping up well, we expect a very successful
1957 season. (Maple Leaf, 1957)
ARMDRAG NOTE: This
info is from the 1957 Maple Leaf but, judging by that last sentence, might be
for the 1956 team. Perhaps that's why some of the team members mentioned in the
write-up aren't pictured in the associated photo.
