In a closely-contested match, the varsity wrestling team dropped a heart-breaking 14-12 decision to Princeton Saturday at the I.A.B.
Capt. Joe Noble, Bob Foster, Carl Kludt and Ted Robbins posted decision victories for the Crimson. Foster, the only remaining unbeaten varsity wrestler, took his seventh straight, a 5-0 decision over John Wright. Noble, beaten only once, notched his seventh win, by 8-1 over Tag Geer, while Robbins, with a 6-0 victory over Gerry Norton, picked up his sixth straight, after two early losses.
The lone pin of the afternoon, which turned out to be the decisive factor, was scored by Princeton captain Bill Macaleer--perhaps the best wrestler to visit the I.A.B this year--over King Holmes with just 18 seconds remaining in the match. Dave Skeels, John Watkins and Tom Hill all dropped decisions to their Tiger opponents.
Before the varsity match, the once-beaten freshman team easily defeated its Princeton counterparts, 27-3.
