Ben Brooks, Tack Chace, and captain Fred Pereira won their first round matches yesterday in the Eastern Inter-collegiate Wrestling Association Championships at Franklin and Marshall, but all three dropped their second round contests to alien mat opponents.
The Crimson's three first round victories topped the performances of all the other Ivy League schools except powerful Cornell.
Brooks (191) won by default over Joel Raichlin of Syracuse, but dropped his next bout to Army's Jake Abraham. Chace pinned Columbia's Bruce Sargent, but was pinned in his second outing by Syracuse's Jim Nance, last year's NCAA heavyweight champion.
Pereira (171) decisioned Ron Geiser of Rutgers, then lost to Cornell's Fran Ferraro.
