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.

Three wrestlers -
Harry Leary of Charlotte, and
Ben Miles and Don Haefle
of Marshall - successfully defended their Interscholastic League
individual titles at Monroe High School last night.
The only other
defending champions in the field were eliminated in the final round,
while four losers in last year's finals came through in the title round
Peter Tabone of East, Bob Alman
of Marshall, Jim Fardette of
Charlotte and Frank Bianchi of
Monroe. For Fardette, last night's win was even bigger than it was for
most of the others. He had bowed in the finals for the last two years.
Marshall each had three champions, with Jefferson, Monroe and East each
titlists will compete in the Section 5 Class A finals at the Rochester
Institute of Technology tomorrow night starting at 7:30.
