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.

The IHS wrestling team, best in the school's history, finished third in the
County Wrestling League with a fine 10 win - 4 loss - 1 tie record. Pacing the
Indians in point scoring was Tom Borshoff in the 95 lb. weight class. Bob
Steihler and Jay Whipple, in the 103 and 138 lb. weight classes respectively,
ran their consecutive win streaks to over twenty in league action. Other
standouts on the team were Dick Clintsman, Dick Steihler, Brian Kaiser, and Dick
Seely. Brian Kaiser captured the championship in the county matches in the 115
lb. weight class at the end of the season. Irondequoit also took the team title
in the county, beating powerful East Rochester and Webster by placing several
grapplers in places third through fifth.
Another highlight of the year was the 48-0 rout of Fairport, a rare shutout
where IHS swept all matches. We salute Coach Arthur Connorton and his standout
team on the fine season.
