TBT: February 13th 1981: Big Day For Big Red Wrestling
Another Big Red Wrestler who swept the weekend was Kevin Troche, who fought in the 158-lb. matches and pinned his Penn opponent. In the 142-lb. weight class, Karl Mulle won two of his matches and drew the third. Although this seems like a dominant performance, going into the final matches against James Madison, Cornell was down 19-15, but Bob Wirth was able to win by default and win nine points. Then Marty Majeski won by a 7-2 decision in his heavyweight match to secure the win for the team. This performance allowed the Big Red Wrestlers to secure a 2nd place finish for the season in the Ivy League. Unfortunately, they were only able to tie for 33rd place in the NCAA this year.
