In the late 1950s and early 1960s interest arose in starting a wrestling team. There were even a few students who competed at area matches as a sort of unofficial team. Finally in the fall of 1962 a team was formally established, with newly arrived Tom "Lefty" McIntyre as coach. A few years later Don Murray, a successful wrestler in high school and the military, came to Brockport. After his graduation in 1969 he became the coach for the team, a role he is still carrying out now, fifty years later!

Following are some scrapbooks and other materials that will help tell the story of this team. For current information on the team please see the College Athletics page.
