I I ' A Fountain of Youth Coach Fran McCann and a talented freshman class led the Irish wrestling team through an exciting season. Notre Dame wrestling coach Fran McCann discovered a fountain of youth during the off-season, and it erupted into one of the most exciting Irish wrestling teams in the school ' s history. McCann had a brilliant recruiting year, bringing in a freshman class which was ranked fourth in the nation by Amateur Wrestling News. Those four freshmen combined with some veteran talent to put together a 7-8 dual meet record and a sixth-place showing in the NCAA West Regionals. Still, Notre Dame ' s sub-.500 team record was not a true indicator of the talent on McCann ' s squad. Perhaps the best example comes in the 134- pound division where freshman Jerry Durso compiled a tremendous 37-8 rec- ord, and narrowly missed a berth in the NCAA national tournament. Durso set a school record for most wins by a freshman and came just one victory short of tying the Irish mark for the most wins in a season. Durso had a lot of help from his classmates. Chris Geneser, wrestling at 167 pounds, posted a fourth-place showing at the regionals after winnig 25 matches during the regular season. Pat Boyd, a 142-pounder, was slowed by injuries early in the year, but came on strong to post a fifth-place showing at the regionals, as did 126-pounder Dave Carlin. When the team needed leader- ship, it didn ' t need to look any further than senior John Krug. Krug, an Aca- demic Ail-American, also managed to earn a top- 20 ranking from Amateur Wrestling News and a fourth-place fin- ish at the regionals. Krug was not the only veteran to help the Irish cause. Other regulars in- cluded Carl Hildinger (118 pounds), Ron Wisniewski (150 pounds), Dan Carrigan (158 pounds), Dave Helmer (190 pounds) , and Spero Karas (heavyweight) . The highlight of the season for ev- eryone came in January, when the Irish claimed the title of the National Catholic Tournament in Cleveland. McCann was named National Catholic Coach of the Year and Duros was named the tournament ' s outstanding wrestler. " I was pleased with our season, " noted McCann. " I think everybody on the squad showed improvement as the year went along, and with the people we have returning next year, I ' m confi- dent we ' ll be successful. " -Chuck Freeby PINNING FOR POINTS. Freshman Jerry Durso sticks his tongue out at his opponent, who is in no position to do anything about it. *Photo by Hannes Hacker 158/Wrestling
