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.

about Edison Tech 145-pounder William Trigg that makes wrestling look
He scored when he wanted to, he was aggressive when he needed to be, no
matter who the opponent was.
Trigg, a senior, had the simple answer to his wrestling style.
"I believe in the philosophy of scoring the most points using the least
amount of energy," said Trigg, who defeated Canandaigua's Andy Bardeen
4-2 last night in the Section V SuperSectional qualifier at Fairport to
earn one of 14 berths in the state meet next weekend.
He was one of 10 wrestlers to earn first-time trips to Syracuse.
"I've always said to myself that I wanted to be a collegiate national
champion," Trigg said. "Getting to the states in one step toward my
This weekend, Trigg (31-0 this season and 119-20 for his career) never
looked to have any trouble with his opponents.
In his first match he recorded a fall over Wellsville's Dan Payne in
3:26. His next two matches leading into the final came by decision: an
11-6 win over Sodus' Dave Lawson and a 13-6 decision over Dave Pickard
In the final against Bardeen, it was a struggle to see who would get
control and ride the momentum from it. After a scoreless first period,
Bardeen scored an escape after Trigg let him up intentionally.
But Trigg took a lead by scoring a takedown seconds later.
In the third period, Trigg scored the next two points, one on a
violation when Bardeen locked hands and the other on an escape.
"I was impressed with him two years ago, I couldn't believe he hadn't
won the states," said Edison coach Leo Fusilli. "My main job this year
was to keep him focused. I got used to his style of wrestling because he
has been with it for a long time. It worked for him so I didn;t change
"It's going to come down to whether I believe in myself," said Trigg on
his chances of winning a state title. "In my mind, I know I can."
On the day, four wrestlers earned a return to Syracuse.
Brian Schaal of Alexander defended his 105-pound title with a 7-3
decision over Ed Schafer of Wayne. Prior to Schaal's final, he pulled
the biggest win of the day be defeating last year's 98-pound state
champion John Gemmel of Hornell, pinning him in 1:21.
Irondequoit's Arkee Allen recorded an 8-6 victory over Jeff Cooper of
Holley to earn a return trip to the states at 126 pounds. Allen, 37-0,
is the top-ranked wrestler in the state at that weight.
Brian Aparo of Victor, second at 132 pounds in last year's state
tournament, will have a chance to pick up that elusive title. Aparo
recorded a 14-5 win over Webster's Matt Jarman and was named the
tournament's outstanding wrestler. In his three prior matches, he
recorded two technical falls and a pin.
East Rochester's Rodney Frey, a four-time Class C champion at 112
pounds, will also make his second trip to the state tournament, although
not in consecutive years. His last trip to Syracuse came in 1991, when
he represented Section V at 91 pounds.
Friday, in his first round match, he recorded a fall before defeating
Dennis Flores of Rush-Henrietta 5-1 in the quarterfinals. He scored a
10-0 decision over Charlie Frificano of Greece Olympia in the
He recorded an 8-3 decision over Pete Fox of Webster in the final.
