In a memorable three-year run, the Geneva High Wrestling teams captured an amazing 18 out of 36 individual sectional titles between 1948 and 1950. Under the guidance of Coach Ed Cuony, the Panthers captured team sectional titles in 1948 and 1950. What makes this feat even more remarkable is the fact that Geneva only began its wrestling program in the 1948 season. They were led by a core group of wrestlers who anchored the team for three seasons. Francis “Chico” Moracco, Richard Pollard, Francis Tandle, Mel Dickinson, Patrick Paone each won two sectional titles while William Baroody, James Bradley, Robert Neilson, Elmer Rossi, and Jamie Deuel won one title apiece.
