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.

Under the leadership of a new coach, Mr. John
Palmer, the matmen proved themselves a credit to C.A. The grapplers
went undefeated throughout the season in the Finger Lakes League
until they lost a close one the Geneva putting C.A. in second place
in the league. The boys finished with 7 wins and 1 defeat in league
competition and an overall record of 8 wins, 2 losses.
Individual honors went to: Tony Addante, who won Section 5 honors at
112 lbs., Gary Carpenter winning his second Finger Lakes
Championship at 127 lbs., and Dick Davis and Ron Beaton, who were
Finger Lakes runner-ups.
Our wrestlers, consisting mostly of Juniors, Sophomores, and
Freshmen, should prove to be talk of the league next year. (Academian, 1963)
