Rock Island Grapplers Reaffirmed Area Power Following a successful rebuilding season in 1971-72, the Rock Island wrestling squad used much of their grappling experience to reinstate the Rocks as one of the toughest competitors in Western Illinois. Head Coach Chester Schultz ' s wrestlers placed third across the river at the Davenport Invitational and fifth out of sixteen teams in the Palatine Tournament, proving that the Rocks are among the top in the area. Besides their great showing in the tournaments, the Rocks used much determina¬ tion and quickness in defeating most of their opposition during the regular season. 1. With his combatant stretched out on the mat, Jerry Vesey ponders how to reverse his opponent to his back. 2. Calvin Bates aggressively puts away another contender. 3. Louis Wells begins to break down his opponent. 4. Finding his opponent reversing on him, Willie Morrow successfully counters. 5. Heavyweight Mark Stevenson awaits the referee ' s signal to continue wrestling. 6. Bradley Payne easily maneuvers another single-leg takedown. 7. Rock Island wrestlers are: FIRST ROW: D. Anderson, G. Stice, J. Lard, W. Morrow, C. Bates, R. Johnson, J. Vezey, W. Each, D. Palmer, A. Rich, L. Wells, T. Golden, Coach C. Schultz. SECOND ROW: S. Thorton, L. Williamson, R. McElrath, G. Van- HoorBeck, D.
