State Tournament, 2nd Place.
Coach George Girardi. Finishing second in the State tournament, U-High’s wrestling team took two firsts, and two seconds out of the five men who advanced to state. Ron Biddle and Tim Hutson each scored resounding first place victories; Biddle winning 12-3 and Hutson scoring 10-0 in the class A finals.
Second place finishes went to Darvin and Dean Miller. Darvin found a second place finish a double disappointment as the loss in the final round was his only one for the season, ending the year with an outstanding 33-1 record. Dean lost in a tight 5-4 decision. Doug McClure, who also qualified for State, was eliminated in the first round.
