Falconer Picked Team of the 1980s

The Falconer Golden Falcons have been selected as the varsity wrestling “Team of the 1980s” by the “Teams of the Decades” Committee.

Using a wrestling tournament style scoring system, in which points are awarded for finishing in first place, second, third, etc, the committee reviewed the final top ten rankings from the 1980-81 season to the 1989-1990 seasons. Total points were then added up to come up with a list of overall points leaders from one to ten. Unique to the 1980’s team selection was the fact there was no distinction between division one and division two schools in the Section Six rankings until 1988.
