After the trials for the University wrestling team held yesterday afternoon in the Wrestling Room of Hemenway Gymnasium, Fiske Brown '22, of Plymouth, was elected captain of the team to take the place of J. A. McDonnell, who is graduating at mid-years. Brown was captain of the 1922 team in his Freshman year, and he is one of the most promising of the University grapplers.
In yesterday's trials three more men were selected to represent the University in the meet with Penn State this week end. On Monday A. B. Walker '22 won in the 115-pound class, and H. J. Freedman '23 was selected from the 125-pounders. In the 175-pound weigh C. A. C. Eastman '23, captain of last year's Freshman team, and University champion in his weight, was awarded the decision, while Fiske Brown '22 was the class of the heavyweights. Yesterday afternoon J. F. Stearns won his bout in the 135-pound group. W. R. Barker '22 showed the best form of the 145-pounders, and Francis Rouillard '23 was chosen to represent the 158-pounders.
Coach Anderson has been coaching the men carefully in general offense tactics, and as all of the men are experienced wrestlers, the chances for a successful season are very bright.
On Friday noon the team leaves for State College, where they will oppose the Penn State wrestlers on Saturday. The meet will be one of the features of the carnival which is going on at State.
