Wrestling 1970

The 1969-70 wrestling squad

On this day 48 years ago, the wrestling squad won the Ivy League Championship. The win brought them their second title in three years, their seventh overall, and began a run of three straight championships between 1970 and 1972.

Here is the recap of the match from Newsday:
