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.

GENEVA - More than 850
fans jammed the Mynderse Academy gym in Seneca Falls Saturday evening to watch
Waterloo win the Wayne-Finger Lakes wrestling title.
Gilfilian's Waterloo mat team scored 75 points to
nose out Mynderse Academy, which netted 68 points, and Geneva High, which
finished with 64 points. Other scoring, Canandaigua Academy 45, Wayne Central
12, Newark 12, Phelps 10, Union Springs 0.
"Any team could have won
the meet, which I think was the best we have held here in my eight years of
coaching the sport," commented Pete De Bottis,
Mynderse Academy grappling coach, whose unit won the regular season pennant.
In the feature, the
154-pound class, Dick Atkinson of Geneva
and Bob Lynch of Waterloo wrestles to a
no-score tie. After two overtimes without an advantage, officials awarded the
match to Atkinson. Under tournament rules, according to De Bottis, a match
cannot end in a draw.
Sectional champs had
little trouble maintaining their winning steaks. Dick Marchionda
of Penn Yan copped the 95-pound title and Mel Brinson,
a teammate, got the best of his rival in the 133-pound division. Brinson
defeated Bill Jackson of Mynderse, a
Finger Lakes titleholder.
In a match that brought
every one to his feet, Ron Hooper of
Mynderse wrestled Geneva's Dick Griffith
to a 3-1 decision to maintain his crown.
Despite the 6-0 result,
Bob Buchwald of Mynderse had a tough time
of things before he subdued Geneva's Jay Covert.
De Bottis commented,
"Everyone sensed that Covert was fighting with all his heart. It was a thrilling
victory for Bob."
In a close contest,
Bob Domm of Canandaigua upset Nick
Barbi of Seneca Falls, 8-5. The other winner from
Canandaigua was John Scammell, who downed
Walt Snyder of Waterloo, 7-0.
