Lowell Ledger Excerpt – The Canadian All-Stars – “This week is one of the most important weeks for the Lowell Wrestling team. Not only do they wrestle Sparta for the league Championship. both teams being undefeated so far. but the team will also sponsor the Canadian All Stars. The Canadian Exchange program started 6 years ago. Since then they have alternated years for this International competition . The Lowell wrestlers competed in Canada last year and won the Kitchner and Waterloo tournament.” – January 20th, 1982 – Grand Valley Ledger – No author found.
