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.

Chris Sherry gave the team unexpected help.
Like so many other Arcadia teams this season, the Titan Varsity Wrestling Team
was plagued by injuries and never got untracked. The team was dealt its severest
blow early in the season when senior Brian Needler had to undergo surgery and
was lost for the year.
Seniors Mike Palumbo, Paul Brigandi, and Mike Fitzgibbon led the hard-working,
spirited squad, but they were unable to overcome the obstacles confronting them.
A strong contigent of underclassmen, especially in the lower weight classes,
improved through the season and give Coach Paul Meges confidence that Arcadia
will return to the ranks of county wrestling powers in the near future. (Arcadia
Freshman John Brigandi made a strong showing.
Mark Kastner controls an opponent.
