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.

East Rochester's wrestling Bombers, deprived last week of winning the Monroe
County League mat championship by losing a thriller to Eastridge, captured the
Monroe County Tournament last night in high style at Webster High.
Coach Don Quinn's western division champions collected 83 points to 76 for
runnerup Rush-Henrietta and 71 for third place Brighton, Webster finished fourth
with 55; Irondequoit, fifth with 53, and Eastridge, sixth with 51.
Three wrestlers completed unbeaten seasons ― including East Rochester's Jim
Tortorici who at the 123-pound level was voted the tournament's most outstanding
performer by the 16 coaches.
Tortorici, Gary St, James of Irondequoit (at 141 pounds) and Roger Bubel of
Spencerport (at 106) each ended the year with perfect 20-0 records.
Brighton's Pete Lewis scored the biggest upset with an 8-6 decision over
previously undefeated John Olesiuk of Irondequoit. Olesiuk, defending county as
well as sectional champion, had won 20 in a row.
Gary Harvey of Fairport, champion in the 168 class, won the tournament's
aggregate pin award with pins of three opponents in the shortest times.
Winners of each class will represent the county circuit in Saturday's Class A
Section 5 tournament at Brockport State College. Quarterfinals get underway at
11 a.m., semifinals follow immediately and the finals begin at 7 p.m.
