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.

Since last year, the varsity wrestling squad has shown improvement and can boast
two outstanding wrestlers on this 1977-78 roster, co-captains John Scalzo and
Ray Watt. Scalzo was names outstanding wrestler at the Webster and Newark
tournaments this year, the first time ever a GHS wrestler has won that award
twice. He has won the Webster tournament three years in a row, never giving up a
point in that competition. In fact, John RARELY gives up a point. To date this
year, he has yielded a total of only four, being undefeated in duals 11-0 and
having an overall record of 17-1.
Ray Watt also won the Webster tourney in his class and placed first in last
year's Newark competition. Ray is 11-0 in duals and 16-2 overall. Both Ray and
John hope that their hard work this year will end in sectional titles.
Other wrestlers who did well in 1977-78 include Jack Augustine, Tom Moses, Tom
Moracco, and John Consentino. (Seneca Saga, 1978)
