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.

Angelo DeAngelis was not overconfident when he stepped onto
the wrestling mat last night. He said he
felt like the underdog.
But the 132-pound Spencerport senior knew he could beat
Penfield’s John Leone.
The match breathed life into a capacity crowd estimated at
2,400 at Fairport High
School and it earned DeAngelis
a trip to the state meet next weekend in Syracuse. He is one of 14 high school wrestlers who
will represent Section 5 in the state tournament.
DeAngelis decision Leone, 7-4, for
the 132-pound Super Sectional honor.
Leone, also a senior, beat DeAngelis, 7-5,
last Saturday in the Class A tournament final.
“I was way overconfident last week,” said DeAngelis, who has a 30-1- record. “I thought I could throw him around like
everybody else I wrestle. I
underestimated him last week... he’s definitely tough.
“It probably won’t sink in for a couple of days,” he
added. “It’s the dream of my life to go
After a scoreless first period, Leone scored one point for
an escape with 1:23 left in the
second period. DeAngelis
then took down Leone for a 2-1 edge with 1:00
left in the second period.
Leone tied the match, 2-2, with an escape left in the second
DeAngelis escaped to open the
third period, then took down Leone for a 5-2
lead. Leone was destined to suffer his
first and only loss of the season. He
“Leone was ready for him last week mentally,” said
Spencerport Coach Bill Jacoutot. “But
we worked on the mental approach this week.
Leone didn’t get the same Angelo he got last week.
“We gave him Frank
Gifford’s book on courage and told him to read the chapter on Dan Gable (A
1972 Olympic gold medalist),” Jacoutot added. “we showed him films
of his brother, Frank, too. We told him,
‘You’re just Frank in another body’.”
Frank DeAngelis was a 138-pound ate champion in 1974 and ’75.
Another wrestler attempting to duplicate his brother’s
accomplishments is Canandaigua’s Marty
King (36-0-1) earned his fourth consecutive state berth with
a 7-0 decision over Batavia’s Scott Riggi
in the 119-pound weight class. The
Canandaigua junior finished second in the state at 91 pounds as an
eight-grader, third at 91 as a freshman, and fourth at 112 as a sophomore.
“I feel stronger at 119,” said King, who weighs about 140
pounds in the off-season. “I’m not
cutting too much.
“It’s down to the nitty-gritty now,” he added. “And I’m not going to lose this time.”
Marty’s older brother, Matt
King, was a state champion two years ago as a senior. Matt currently is
wrestling in college at North Carolina.
Matt was a four-time Section 5 champion who finished his
high school career with a 152-14-1 record.
Marty, also a four-time sectional champ, has a career record of
King is one of four Canandaigua wrestlers bound for the
states. The others are: sophomore Butch Hibbard
(29-0), sophomore Paul Lamphier (29-5), and senior T.J. Mincer (21-4). Hibbard and Lamphier
were Class A tournament champions last weekend, while Mincer
was a runner-up.
Hibbard defeated Shawn
Gregor of Wayne,
17-3, in the 98-pound weight class; Lamphier pinned
John Young at 1:58 of the 105-pound match, and Mincer
decisioned Avoca’s David Moose, 8-3, at 138 pounds.
Canandaigua had five wrestlers in the finals of the Super
Sectionals. The other was John Bradshaw who lost a 5-2 decision
to Pittsford’s John Brennan in the
250-pound weight class.
While Canandaigua placed four wrestlers on the state-bound
team, Spencerport, East Rochester, and Brighton
each have two representatives.
Spencerport’s John Suhr will join teammate DeAngelis
in Syracuse. Suhr, an unbeaten
senior (30-0), edged Brockport’s Phil
St. George in overtime, 4-0, at 145 pounds.
ER junior Tim Quinn
(29-5) captured the 126-pound honor with a 7-0 decision over McQuaid’s Mike Scott
and sophomore Chris Schojan
(32-1) decisioned Geneseo’s
Mike Hughes, 7-4, at 177.
Brighton junior Brian Kurlander (32-1) pinned
Jerry Walter of Fairport at 5:03 of the 155-pound match and Steve Salzman
(31-3) decisioned McQuaid’s
at 167 pounds, 7-4.
Also winning Super Sectional honors were
Bob Zoeke of
McQuaid, Ted Pittinaro
of Webster Schroeder, and LeRoy’s Steve Matthews.
Zoeke, a junior with a 34-2
record, defeated Wayne freshman Ron Gross, 13-0, in the 91-pound weight
class; Pittinaro, a senior with a 29-2 record, decisioned Letchworth senior Tony Vallance
at 112 pounds, 7-3, and Matthews (34-2), also a senior, was a 9-5 decision against
ER senior Tony Rossi at 215.
