Tech Places Highest
Of P.I.L. At State
"We're going to crush next year in the P.l.L.." stated
varsity heavyweight Chris Wright 1111 as he surveyed
the results of the season. The team coming off the
highest placing inthe state by a P.l.L. team is losing
only four varsity wrestlers. Coach Ken Surbrook said,
"l'm really pleased with the results of the season
considering how young the team is."
Coach Surbrook has a right to be pleased with a
young team that compiled a league record of 7-2, a tie
for second place at the P.I.L. dual meet, third place at
the P.I.L. District Tournament, and the highest placing
of any P.l.L. team at the State Tournament. When
asked what he thought of the teams placing at state
1241, Coach Surbrook replied, "There are seven other
P.I.L. teams that would be glad to trade places with us."
Grant, the P.l.L. champs, finished 25 one half point

T. West Is Benson's
With 26 Iettermen this year and 21 returning J.V. and
varsity wrestlers Coach Surbrook looks for a team that
will dominate the competition. Next year's team will
receive a lot of help from a frosh team that took third in
their city meet.
Some of the more outstanding performances came
from Travis West 1121 the state champ at 123. Travis
was the first Benson wrestler to take three state titles.
His freshman year he placed fifth in state at 98 pounds
and his sophomore year saw him capture the crown at
98. Grade 11 was another outstanding year for Travis.
As he moved up in grade level he also moved up in the
weight classes and a new title was captured,State
Champ at 106.As Travis continued things started to get
routine. After a giant move up in the weight classes put
him at 123 pounds, Travis went on to post a record of
zero losses, and, of course, a state title at 123 pounds.
Another outstanding wrestler was Carl Waller 1101.
Carl, one of two varsity heavyweights took second in
the district finals. Besides West and Waller five other
wrestlers qualified to go to State. They were Mike
Middlestead 1101 98 pounds, Pat Willis 1101 115
pounds, Scot Thorburn 1113 148 pounds, Robert Meek
1121 168 pounds, and Scott Burke 1121 198 pounds.
Two of the better matches came against Madison
and Franklin. By the time Benson was through with
Madison the Senators were impeached with a 63-3 loss
to the Techmen. The team that placed second in the
city, Franklin, did a little better but the Quakers were
quaking in their boots at the sight of a 40-24 loss to the
North Bend Tournament
