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.

FAIRPORT - Tim Rosa flirted with disaster last night, but the Rush-Henrietta Sperry wrestler lived to talk about it.

 

"I don't believe I pulled that one out," said Rosa, who turned a 4-0 deficit into a 6-4 victory over Penfield's Robin Fluman in the 167-pound class at the Section 5 state qualifier.

 

Rosa, one of two undefeated wrestlers in the section, had every reason to be shaking his head in disbelief after coming back before an estimated crowd of 1,500 at Fairport High.  Entering the third and final period, Rosa, a senior, looked up from the short end of a 4-0 score, and Fluman (25-10) had command of the match from the "up" referee's position.

 

It was hardly a textbook victory, but Rosa made his moves and points when it counted.

 

Seconds into the third period, Rosa recorded a point for an escape.  Midway through the period, he was awarded two more points for a takedown to close within 4-3.  With seven seconds left in the match, Rosa was awarded three points for a near pin of Fluman.  He held on to win, and Rosa will be one of 14 athletes representing Section 5 at the state championships this Friday and Saturday in Syracuse.

 

Rosa admitted he thought about giving up in the third period, "but when I had got to that state (of mind), I thought, what the heck and go for it."

 

"That was one good match," added Rosa.  "The kid's good.  He's tough.  He gave me the best two matches all year.  He's the only one to take me down all year, and he did it twice ... We both tried at the end, but I caught him ... It's a tough way to lose.  I know just how he feels."

 

Rosa wasn't the only wrestler to be grateful to be going to Syracuse.  Bob Brawn of Spencerport was glad just to be in the finals.  Brawn (30-2-1) decisioned previously-unbeaten Van Schirmer (32-1) of York at 126, 6-2.

 

"This far exceeded my goal," said Brawn.  "It seems like a Cinderella season.  This is incredible.  I was hoping for 20 victories and I ended up with 30.  The competition in my class was not as good as last year or as in some of the other weight classes last year.

 

"Back in my mind, I didn't think it would be possible (going to the states).  I thought there would be someone popping up and getting in the way, like Chris Kane."

 

There might have been a Brawn-Kane confrontation, but Brawn dropped down from 132 to 126 for the sectionals.  Kane (33-1) stayed at 132 and won the title with a 24-6 victory over another previously-unbeaten wrestler, Tim Fitzgerald (31-1) of Lyons.

 

Kane, s senior who will make his second appearance at states, rolled off a 7-0 lead in the first period.

 

"He had to start gambling at that point, and that was a turning point of the match," Kane said.  I got him on his back to make it 12-1.  You've got to go for everything in this match."

 

Fitzgerald's defeat left only Rosa and Rich Bottone of Hornell as the only undefeated Section 5 wrestlers.  Bottone (28-0) recorded a 9-3 victory over Rob Evarts of Brighton at 155.

 

Though no team scoring was kept, Canandaigua dominated the qualifier with four individual champions - freshman Butch Hibbard (91), Paul Lamphier (98), and sophomore Marty King (112) and senior Morris White (145) won their respective bouts.

 

Hibbard pinned Kevin Bishop of Greece Athena at 91 in 5:27.  Lamphier defeated East Rochester's John Hanselman at 98, 7-0.  King, a three-time sectional champion, rolled over Mike Hofer of Kendall, 10-1.  And White decisioned John Suhr of Spencerport, 9-6.

 

This will be King's third trip to the state meet (he was allowed to wrestle in eighth grade), finishing second and third.  Did he have any words of wisdom to give his two younger teammates?

 

"They're saying they're glad to go to the states," King said.  "That's what I was saying two years ago.  You can never be satisfied with what you've got.  You're going to regret that later in life."

 

Like King, Mynderse Academy's Steve Siegfried has wrestled on the varsity since eighth grade, but this will be his first trip to the states.  Siegfried, a senior with a 127-13-4 career record, defeated Dan Sacco of Letchworth at 105, 8-4.

 

"I've had close shots at going (to the states) twice," Siegfried said.  "This was my last chance.  My goal was always to make the states.  Not just get there; I want to in it."

 

Caledonia-Mumford's Joe Gustainis was a double winner.  He pinned Phil Weaver of Bath in 1:38 at 215.  Before the meet, he was given the first Scott Trainor award and a $500 scholarship.  The award and scholarship are given to an outstanding Section 5 wrestler.  Trainor, who was a Section 5 champion at Churchville-Chili, died in a car accident Sept. 19. 1981.

 

In other matches, Gates-Chili's Mike Bauer decisioned Phil Conner of Ruch-Henrietta Roth at 119, 11-1.  Cardinal Mooney's Mike Rowntree edged Jim Brown of Pittsford Sutherland at 177, 10-8 and Pittsford Mendon's John Brennan defeated Ken Herbert of Letchworth at 250, 8-3.

 

There was no outstanding wrestler announced last night, but one will be chosen at Section 5's dinner of Champions March 16.
