Rocky ' s ' 59- ' 60 matmen, after a late- season spurt of improvement, took second place honors in the District, third in the Sectional and wound up sending five of their members to the State Finals at Champaign Pacing the Varsity Wrestling " five " was middleclassman Tom Miller, who emerged with 3rd place state honors. Jerry Shefren, Chuck Phillips, Ken Hill, and Tom Davis contributed valuable tournament points as the Rocks amassed ten points to rank in the upper quarter of the eighty competing schools. Although a 6-6-1 record isn ' t a very im¬ pressive one on the surface, looking deeper into the team scores of each meet and going further yet to the individual scorer we dis¬ cover tense and extremely close competition in each weight class. As in the case of Moline, where the scoring line was drawn so fine that a pin rather than the decision accomplished by heavweight Bob Hannes would have been necessary to collect a win for the Rocks. In the Mississippi Valley Conference, the intense competition in Wrestling is strong¬ er than in any other prep sport, says, Coach Schultz. Area sports fans are beginning to realize that a wrestling meet can furnish as much excitement as other more widely ac¬ claimed sports. The top five point scorers during the year were: Chuck Phillips 86, Jerry Shefren 85, Tom Miller 85, Ken Hill 66, and Jack Masters 61. Only Miller will return next year as Masters will move away and Phillips, Shefren, and Hill will graduate. A large scale rebuilding program will have to go into effect next year, but with the junior high program beginning to produce experienced youngsters, and with outstanding prospects on the " B " team, the Rocks can be expected to field a representative team.
