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.

Getting there, they say, is half the fun. Getting back is twice as hard.

Three Section 5 wrestlers tied for that return trip to the state meet in Syracuse and only Brockport senior Steve Taylor succeeded last night in Section 5's state qualifier at Webster Junior High School.

The state meet begins Friday at the Onondaga County War Memorial, and Taylor found his way back by outpointing Rich Theal of Attica in the 145-pound final, 5-2.

Taylor finished third, behind two seniors, at 145 in the '89 state meet. The doomsayers awaited him when he got back in town.

"Everybody said the hardest thing to do is to get back," he said. "It was pretty tough, but I expected it to be."

Section 5 brought 11 of a possible 14 seniors to the 1989 state meet and came away with a thrid-place team showing with individual titles by Hilton's Andy Antonucci at 119 pounds and Spencerport's Joe LoPresti at 126. But yesterday's matches saw Syracuse veterans Terry Lucero of Bloomfield lose a 167 semifinal and Alex Croog of Brighton fall in the 98 final.

Like the 31-0 Taylor, Lucero and Croog got through the regular season and sectionals OK. Taylor says he found that a challenge in itself.

"You can feel that pressure," he said. "You can feel everyone gunning for you. They have nothing to lose."

Last night's tough-luck match was at 98 pounds as Roy Frey of East Rochester defeated Croog for the sixth straight time in their careers. Call it the non-network battle of the stars: Croog made the state team at 91 pounds last winter as a freshman and Frey came within one victory of making the bus to Syracuse.

"I had to win today," said Frey after is 4-2 decision. "After that devastating blow in Class C (a semifinal disqualification for slamming an opponent), I had to go to states.

Frey noted the irony of the state meet, which brings together representatives from all sections, including some that aren't as strong in the sport as the Rochester area is.

"A lot of time people who make it to states don't deserve to be there," Frey said. "Alex Croog does deserve to be there."

The championship round featured four rematches of Section 5 Class A finals from a week ago. Chris Terrigino of Irondequoit, Bryan Knauss of McQuaid, James Barbato of Gates-Chili and Jason Bovenzi were called upon to prove they could beat their man twice in a row.

At 105 pounds, Terrigino suffered an overtime loss on referee's criterion to Don Spaulding of Rush-Henrietta. Spaulding lost to Croog in the 91 final a year ago.

At 126, Knauss blanked Shawn Bauer, one of Gates-Chili's four finalists, 3-0. Right after that, Barbato pinned Fairport sophomore Matt Logan in the 132 match at 2:53 of overtime. Logan led in regulation, 2-1, when he was hit with a one-point penalty for stalling. He fell behind in OT, 7-2, before the pin.

In the final rematch, at 155, Bovenzi was convincing in raising his record to 34-1 with an 11-5 decision over Kevin Sommers of Gates-Chili.

Four other bouts involved matchups of sectional tournament winners.

At 9 pounds, Pietro Furgiuele of ER improved his record to 34-0-1 when he edged Mark Voci of McQuaid, 4-2.

At 119, Gary DeCarr of North Rose-Wolcott scored a 13-3 decision of Dan Le Roy's Shirley, who came within a victory of making states at 112 last March. At 138, Kenny Porter of Alfred-Almond pinned Tom Foos of Spencerport with :01 left in the third period.

In the 177 final, Brian Marcinek of the host Warriors earned his purple singlet when he topped Mike Uveino of Letchworth, 9-4.

In the other finals, Bryant Ranger of Midlakes improved to 36-0 with a 5-1 decision over Gates-Chili's Rob Giannavola at 112; Brian Gray of Wellsville routed Matt Smith of Addison, 15-4 at 155; Brighton 215-pounder Otha Davidson blanked Kevin Johnson of Rush-Henrietta, 5-0; and D.J. Williams of ER got by Jon Porschet of Midlakes in the 250 match, 2-0.
