Lowell Ledger – 1959, Bob Thaler

 

The winter of 1958-1959 was the first season of wrestling at Lowell High School. Other teams in the area had wrestling teams prior to this season, but it was a new sport growing in popularity in the United States at the time. Lowell’s first win came against Belding.

Ken Spooner placed 4th at regionals at 138 pounds to become the first Red Arrow to advance to state competition. Spooner was a senior who played halfback for the Lowell Football team.
