Wrestling 1933

The 1933 wrestling squad

On this day 85 years ago, the wrestling team topped Bay Shore, 26-10, after winning six of the eight matches.

Aertsen Keasbey (105 lbs) pinned his opponent with a “crotch hold,” according to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, in 5:23, John Smart (115 lbs) used Keasbey’s method to win by pin in 1:33,  Lane Patterson (125 lbs) used a headlock to pin his opponent in 1:37, Edward Randolph (135 lbs) pinned his opponent with a half-nelson in under four minutes, and Philip Voegelin (155 lbs) and John Harmon (165 lbs) each won by “time advantage.”

The team would go on to finish 7-1 in 1932-33 and a year later won the school’s first Suffolk County Championship.
