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.

SYRACUSE ― Tim Page and Bill Payne won 40 wrestling matches this season, but the state titles they won last night were the most stirring and rewarding.

Page, a Wayland-Cohocton eighth-grader, scored a sudden death victory over Phil Mansueto of Section IX's Middletown in the 98-pound class at the Onondaga County War Memorial yesterday.

Payne, Geneva's 155-pounder ranked tops in the state, scored a climactic takedown to defeat Chris Roggie of Beaver River of Section III.

The third Section V wrestler to reach the finals ― Hornell's Otto House ― lost his 105-pound match by a pin to Brandon Lehman of Ithaca (Section IV).

Page held nothing in reserve, saying "I gave it all I had. I was going to do anything I could do to win."

After a scoreless first period, Page scored a reversal 32 seconds into the second period. Mansueto scored a reversal with 27 seconds left, but Page escaped with 15 seconds left to lead 3-2 entering the third period. With Page on top, Mansueto almost escaped twice, then tied the match with 22 seconds left when Page was called for stalling.

After a scoreless two-minute overtime, Page began the 30-second sudden death overtime in the bottom position. His reversal with 14 seconds left won the match.

"I'd seen a little more of (Mansueto's) earlier matches and knew he was good on top," said Page (40-0). "I just got hand control and did a switch."

Payne (40-1) trailed 6-4 entering the final period but escaped and scored a takedown for a 7-6 lead with 33 seconds left. Roggie escaped with five seconds left to tie the match, but Payne struck for a takedown with two seconds left.

"When Roggie got the escape, I don't know where that came from," said Payne's coach, Bill Hadsell. "I thought it was overtime. Guts got him that takedown."

House (36-5) held a 13-9 lead entering the third period before Lehman surged. He scored a takedown 19 seconds into the period, then pinned House seven seconds later.

Coach Matt Sheldon said he spent the first two periods telling House "to slow down and stay calm."

But when Lehman took down House, he "slowed down so much that he hesitated too long on the bottom and let the kid lock him up in a cradle."

 

The most successful Monroe County wrestler was 126-pounder Jason DeBruin of Spencerport, who finished sixth after losing a 6-5 decision to Dylan Urban of Union-Endicott (Section IV) in the consolation finals.

DeBruin lost his opening match to Urban, who was the state champion at 119 pounds last year, 15-4. After a first-round bye in wrestlebacks, he won three matches: 6-1 over Edgar Rodriguez (Fulton-III), 4-3 over Ryan Cook (Messena-X) and by pin in 1:26 over Greg Schneider (Suffern-I) to earn the rematch with Urban.

Two Section V wrestlers reached the semifinals before losing, dropping their wrestleback matches and wrestling for fifth place.

Steve Lacagnina of Penfield beat Jason Peryea of North Adirondack-VII in a rematch 3-1 to finish fifth at 112. Lacagnina beat Peryea 3-1 in overtime in his opening match at 112 and then pinned Eric Siegel of Clarkstown North-1 in 5:12.

After a semifinal loss by 9-7 to Paul Paquin of Cornwall-IX, Lacagnina (37-5) lost 3-0 in wrestleback semifinals to Jody Avery of Morrisville-Eaton-III.

Mark Schermerhorn (40-4) of Hilton beat Jamie Gilmore of North Adirondack, 7-2, for fifth at 177. Schmerhorn beat Walt Henry of Pine Bush-IX 5-2 after a first round bye, then lost to Julian Cover of Freeport-VIII in the semis. He then suffered a 5-0 loss to Joe Downey of Norwich-IV in wrestlebacks.

91: Kory Holland beat former Falconer teammate Ryan Fralick 6-2 in the opening round before losing 12-3 to Greg Parker of Shenendowa-II in wrestlebacks. Holland pinned Carlos Rodriguez of Newtown-PSAL in 2:06 and lost to Mike McCann of Mepham-VIII 8-6 in overtime to finish 36-3.

119: Coddie Bissell of Bolivar-Richburg opened with a bye before losing to Brad Rowe of Ripley-VI 12-0 in wrestlebacks. Bissell pinned Brad Nichols of North Adirondack-VII in 3:21 and lost to Jim Powderly of Newburgh-IX, 9-6. He ended up the season at 39-7.

145: Pavilion's Jeremy Flint (23-4) took third after beting Eric Roggie of Beaver River-III 6-3. Following a first-round bye, Flint pinned Rob Relinger of West Islip-XI in 5:04 before losing to Ian Kaplan of Southside-VIII 5-4 in the semis. He then outscored John French of South Glens Falls-II 6-2 in the consolation semifinals.

215: Perry's Jake Swyers (40-1) won 3-1 over Dale Griffith of Canastota-III for third place. Swyers beat Griffith 6-3 in his opening match, then pinned David Warner of John Jay-I in 5:49 before dropping a 5-2 decision to Morton Greenwood of Freeport-VIII in the semis. Swyers beat Joe Bushey of Peru-VII 11-0 to reach the consolation finals.

132: Hornell's Matt Drake lost to Ryan Bernholz of Mt. Sinai-XI 8-0 in the first round and after a bye in the opening round of wrestlebacks lost to Greg Bently of Ripley-VI 5-2.

138: Spencerport's Adam Ventress opened with a 7-2 win over John Ashline of Peru-VII before losing to Stan Greene of Vernon-Verona-Sherrill-III 11-4 in wrestlebacks. Ventress (37-6) topped Ron Lorenz of Lancaster-VI 6-1 before falling to Cartney Curnuck of MacArthur-VII 13-11.

167: Geneva's Anthony Boultron (34-7) defeated Emmanuel Jean-Pierre of Mr. Vernon-I 8-3 but lost to Jason Kenul of Patchogue-Medford-XI 6-3. In wrestlebacks Boultron was pinned by Mike French of Queensbury-II in 2:20.

250: McQuaid's Jason DiCesare (33-3) lost to Thomas Marrero of Wyandach-XI 4-2 in overtime after a first-round bye and pinned Lou Addazio of Chaminade-CHSAA in 1:36 in the first round of wrestlebacks. He completed a 33-3 season after a 10-3 loss to Brad Tanton of Vestal-IV.
