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 smell of sweat and sounds of a thrilling
match fills the gym with excitement. Quick moves, a squirming mass
of two bodies against each other. That is part of wrestling. This
past year without any assistance, Coach McMaster trained a team
consisting of one senior Kip Falkner, and the rest underclassmen,
Jeff Bailey, Walt Shearing, and Harry Mattingly were tri-captains.
The team had little experience, but they were great in trying to
achieve their goal. Letchworth had wrestlers in a Le Roy Tournament.
They competed against one of the best teams in the state. (Legend,
