Varsity Bows To Gymnasts In Wrestling


By the scant margin of 26 seconds, the varsity wrestling team lost its second meet of the season on the I.A.B. mats last evening. With the score of 14 to 11 in favor of Springfield, Gymnast heavyweight George Benedict clapped a figure-four on Al Clubert and rode him for a one minute, 25 second, last period time advantage, to take a 5 to 4 decision, and give Springfield the match, 17 to 11.

The varsity had fought back from a 14 to 3 disadvantage with the aid of an 8 to 5 decision by undefeated Bob Foster over Springfield's previously unbeaten Vic Lewin. Foster combined two take-downs, a reverse, an escape, and riding time, as he controlled his man for nearly the entire match.

Captain Bob Gilmor then went out and took his man down picked him up and carted him back to the center of the mat so that he could not crawl off, and calmly proceeded to pin him in two minutes flat with a half-nelson and crotch. This set the stage for the heavyweight match.


123--Ed Amerantes (S) d. Dave Skeels, 2-0; 130--Bill Chassey (S) pinned Mike Abramowitz in 7:58 with a body press; 137--Dick Dickey (S) d. Bob Crook, 7-3; 147--Joe Noble (H) d. Frank Mieliniki, 8-1; 157--Burt Berger (S) d. Jack Eastling, 4-1; 167--Bob Foster (H) d. Vic Lewin, 8-5; 177--Bob Gilmor (H) d. Buddy Woelfel in 2:00 with half-nelson and crotch; Heavyweight--George Benedict (S) d. Al Culbert, 5-4.
