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.

rubbing their eyes last night during the 96-pound championship bout at
That was when Wayland-Cohocton's Tim Page was meticulously doing
something probably no other Section V wrestler has done in the
Page was defeating Holley junior Ashley-John Grillo 5-2 for a trip to
the state tournament. That followed a semifinal match in which he beat
Lyndonville sophomore Tom Russo by technical fall.
It wasn't that people couldn't believe Page, an eight-grader, was
winning against wrestlers with a little more experience. But Page beat
two wrestlers with state tournament experience.
Grillo and Russo each finished fifth in the New York State Public High
School Athletic Association championships at 91 and 98 pounds,
"It's probably never happened," Section V wrestling chairman Don DeBadts
said. "At least not in this tournament."
Page's win highlighted the early bouts at the SuperSectional, which is
the state qualifier for next week's state tournament at the Onondaga
County War Memorial in Syracuse. Hornell had a pair of champions in
91-pound freshman Kory Holland and 105-pounder Otto House. House beat
last year's state runner-up Charlie Voorhees, in the semifinals, then
pinned Canandaigua's Wes Bennett in 1:18 of the championship. The Red
Raiders, ranked second all season in the Democrat and
Chronicle/Times-Union large schools poll, also had 132-pounder Matt
Drake and 167-pounder Jeff Green each reach the championship. Each
reached the state tournament last year but did not place.
Monroe County champion Spencerport had three wrestlers reach the final:
112-pounder Billy Jacoutot, 126-pounder Jason DeBruin and 138-pounder
Jacoutot lost by pin in 3:39 but DeBruin beat Webster senior Pete Fox,
last years champion, 5-2. Ventress was scheduled to meet Greece
Olympia's Don Carlo-Clauss in a later bout.
But Page was the early story last night.
The Class B champion had lost in last year's semifinals to Grillo.
"I made it this far, so I figured I'd just keep going," said Page, who
is 35-0 this season and 63-3 in his two-year career. "It's hard to
believe it, but it's been done now."
He may have been an unknown commodity in Monroe County until last night,
but this isn't the case south of Rochester.
"Being down in the Southern Tier we don't get a lot of press," said
Way-Co coach John Pangia, who shares coaching duties with Paul Welytok.
"People who had seen (Page) knew he had a lot of talent. He's always had
a lot of natural ability, but I think he really matured this year."
Page also beat East Rochester senior Ryan Wilson, the runner-up to
Grillo in last week's Class C meet, in the quarterfinals.
"I was just thinking to wrestle with my heart and to give it all I've
got," said Page, the Class B champion the past two years.
