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.

Tim Quinn recently placed a long distance,
wrestler-to-wrestler telephone call to Marty King in Canandaigua.
The East Rochester senior wanted some information from King,
one of the state’s all-time winningest wrestlers.
In particular, Quinn wanted to know what weight class King
was going to dominate this post-season.
King told him 126.
“Marty and I have been wrestling together since we were
eight graders,” Quinn said Saturday night after both qualified for a return
trip to the state tournament. “We’re
the best of friends.
“We had a talk with each other this year, and we made a deal
to tell each other what we’d be doing around sectionals so we shouldn’t clash.”
It’s not that Quinn and King don’t enjoy battling one
another. It’s just that they could see
no reason for one state-smart individual to stay home while the other went to
Syracuse for the intersectionals.
Paul Lamphier of Canandaigua said Bob Zoeke of McQuaid, two
state runners-up last year at different weight classes, ran into that
problem. Both elected to wrestle at
105, making a confrontation in the sectionals and Super Sectionals inevitable.
Lamphier defeated Zoeke, 6-4, in the finals of Saturday
night’s state-qualifying meet at Brockport State. It was only the second loss of the season for Zoeke, and just the
11th of his four-year varsity career, but it was the McQuaid
senior’s last high school bout.
Lamphier, a junior, will be going to Syracuse Friday to wrestle
in the two-day state meet. Zoeke will
Quinn, ER’s all-time winningest wrestler, felt “sorry” for
Zoeke. “There probably isn’t another
kid in the state who could beat him,” he said.
To avoid such a situation, Quinn worked around King, a defending
state champion and All-America selection.
When he discovered that King was going to pursue his record
fifth trip to the states at 126, Quinn made his way into the 132-pound class.
The payoff came with a 4-0 decision over Fairport’s Tom
Walter in the final of the Super Sectionals.
Walter had defeated Quinn during the regular season, 8-5.
Quinn became one of seven individuals to earn a return to
Canandaigua’s Butch Hibbard (98 pounds), Spencerport’s
John Suhr (145), Brighton’s Brian Kurlander (155), and ER’s Chris Schojan
(177) also will repeat as Section 5 representatives at the 28th annual
Canandaigua placed a record five individuals on the
state-bound team. Included are 91-pound
Mike Locagnato and 112-pound Joe Hibbard.
Here’s a weight-class glance at the state qualifiers:
91 – Locagnato, a junior with a 32-5 season record and a
47-8 career standing scored a 4-0 decision in the final over Savona sophomore
Steve Peterson (31-2, 75-9).
98 – Butch Hibbard (32-3, 98-9-1), a junior who finished
second in the state last year at 98, defeated Lyndonville senior Mike Siebert
in the final, 5-0.
105 – Lamphier (29-4, 102-14) avenged a 4-3 loss in the
Section 5 Class A final with a two-point victory over Zoeke (33-2, 102-11).
112 – Joe Hibbard, senior with a 124-19-4 career record,
handed Greece Athena junior Kevin Bishop (33-1, 88-9-1) his first loss of the
119 – The first non-Canandaigua qualifier appeared in
Brighton senior Jon Blauvelt (32-2, 88-21-2), who scored a last-second takedown
to win a 6-4 decision over Waterloo junior Joel Lamson.
126 – King equaled 1961 Irondequoit
Tony Cotroneo’s state
record for most career victories (164) with a 23-3 superior decision over North
Rose-Wolcott senior Elon Ranks (28-3, 77-13).
King (33-0, 164-11-1), the state champion last year at 119, had a cut
opened above his left eye when he was elbowed early in the third period. He finished the match, then stopped at a
hospital on his way home for stitches.
132 – Quinn (26-4, 115-33-1) handed Class A champion Walter
(28-1, 58-13) his first loss of the season.
138 – Mike Cronmiller, an unbeaten Edison senior (28-0,
50-3-1), defeated Livonia senior Mark Braun in the final, 10-5.
145 – Suhr, a senior (28-2, 112-14) who holds his school’s
career victories record, edged Fairport senior Nick Whitcombe, 6-5. Suhr, second in the state last year at 145,
did not meet Brockport rival Phil St. George as expected in the
semifinals. The junior (31-5-1,
82-19-1) lost to Wellsville’s Darrold Brownell in the quarterfinals, 7-5.
155 – Kurlander, an undefeated senior (33-0, 86-8) who

the state last year at 177, overcame Cadinal Mooney senior Joe Errigo in the
semifinals, 4-3, and Batavia senior Dave Cutitta in the final, 4-0.
215 – C.C. Grant, a once-beaten Williamson senior (31-1) who
last year gave up basketball for wrestling, decisioned Spencerport senior and
Class A champion Steve Vigliotti (29-2, 75-13-1) in the final, 7-2.
