On This Day In History | 1954

February 13, 2011

The Blue and White | Stevenson (1st on right)

On this day 57 years ago the wrestling squad vanquished archrival Poly Prep, 23-21, to finish in a 3-way tie for 1st place in the Ivy League.

Brook matmen smash tradition as they flatten Poly in the final match.  Stevie [Captain Bob Stevenson] is the hero of the day.  The wild crowd hits the ceiling as the wrestling crown moves nigh in our trophy case.
