1971 Sectionals Article by Larry A. Hicks YSN
           ▪ York, Pa -
WRESTLING, a sport that goes back to the arenas of the ancient Greeks,
       has proved that it is firmly installed in the hearts of many York County fans as the
       West York High School gymnasium was "filled to capacity" to view the York County
       Sectional Wrestling Tournament Saturday afternoon and evening.  High school
       wrestlers from all York County Wrestling League members put their heart and soul into
       their maneuvers with the result being several upsets and quite a few heart-breakers.
       Randy Miller, York Vo-Tech trounced previously unbeaten John Stough, Dallastown 6-1,
       in the 145lb. class.  Bill Trostle, heavyweight of South Western, lost to Jeff Mitchell of
       Dallastown, 7-4.  In the finals, Dallastown and West York dominated the championships.
       Six of the Wildcats and five of the Bulldogs won titles.  Next in line was Spring Grove
       with three. There was no official team champion in this year's sectionals since two
       men in each weight class advance to the Districts.
