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.

"Stay off your backs!" That was the call that lead the Viking Grapplers to their record of 4-7-1. With Fly and Slip (the blonde bomber) contributing their brotherly talents, the Vikings were sure to conquer.

Hey coach Swimlar, when ya going to come to practice before four o'clock? Although he didn't always show up on time, he still was there when the team needed him.

With Big Bad Gus and his fantastic profile, there was enough beauty in the team to cardiac arrest any opponent. Grab for it Vikings. (Skj÷ld, 1978)

JVs Pinned

Maybe pinned isn't exactly the term we should use, but the J.V. wrestling squad ended their season 4-7-1.

You couldn't classify them as heavy――not with "Breeze" (the hunched gorilla that took control of his man).

Although they always showed up at the mats after stepping off the scales, you could call them camera shy. Four on a J.V. team? (or is it that there are only four photogenic grapplers?) "You want it, you can get it," according to Coach Stever. (Skj÷ld, 1978)
