The 1—10 dual meet record does not reflect the ex¬ perience gained by the many underclassmen who wrestled on the varsity squad all year. As many as six of the twelve weight classes were filled by sophomores. Most promising of the soph¬ omores was 103-pounder Ron Banks who advanced to the fi¬ nals of the sectional tourna¬ ment and just missed qualify¬ ing for State when he was 206 defeated in the “wrestle back " round of the tournament. Helping the effort at the sec¬ tional tournament were 145- pounder Rick Bevans, junior, who along with Banks placed first in district competition and 120-pounder Ezell Turner, sen¬ ior, who qualified by placing second in the district. Senior 127-pounder Chuck McDowell was the most suc¬ cessful wrestler in dual meet competition but failed to qual¬ ify for the higher tournaments when he was upset in district.
