grapplers pin down a good season Snow was the big winner in the wres¬ tling circles this season for the Rock Island High School wrestling team Along with the weather, lack of the lighter weights gave the edge to all of Rocky’s opponents this year. The loss of 112 pounder Allen Speed due to a temporary paralyzing neck injury at the Palantme Tournament together with returning letterman Enrique Diaz leav¬ ing were key factors making the grapplers fall in the losing column. Despite the set backs. Rocky had three outstanding wrestlers. They are Todd Griffith. Don Gerber, and Randy Swan¬ son. Griffith, with a 14 wins and 1 loss record, was selected as 3rd in the state of Illinois by the “Word” news. Swan¬ son along with Griffith were nominated as prep of the week for back to back pins over Quincy and Galesburg. Se¬ lected as the outstanding wrestler was Don Gerber. Heavyweight Roman Bates was tabbed as an outstanding wrestler on the sophomore levpl. Leading Rocky ' s wrestlers, pictured with their coach, are seniors Todd Grif¬ fith. Don Gerber, Coach Walt Gerber, and Randy Swanson. Determined Nick Pappas continued to wrestle for the mighty Rocks even though suffering a broken nose early in the season. " Rock a bye baby” is demonstrated by grappler Don Gerber. 26 Varstiy Wrestling
