Research by Robert F. Bonar has once again filled in some missing history of Calhoun County High School sports.

Bonar has spent considerable time to compile records of the Red Devils’ wrestling history from the 1963-64 season to the 1979-80 season.

Coaches during that period were Donald Weaver, John Porterfield, Chuck Mills, John Newsom, Larry Chapman and Lee Evans.

“These records are from confirmed sources, no undocumented sources were used,” said Bonar.

Additional information includes the following:

--The State Wrestling Tournament was not divided into its AAA and AA/A format until 1976.

--From 1964 to 1975, Calhoun participated in regional tournaments with larger schools, like Parkersburg and Moundsville, and in State tournaments with the likes of Charleston and Huntington.                        

--Since the division of AAA and AA/A in 1976, Calhoun has amassed a 42-20-2 dual record against AAA schools. Since 2000, Calhoun has won 19 such duals, while losing only two (Nitro and Ripley in 2003).

--Calhoun dropped wrestling for the 1973-74 season.        

--Calhoun was one of the original members of the Little Kanawha Conference in wrest-ling, along with Wirt County, Harrisville and Cairo. 

--Calhoun has wrestled in every LKC Tournament except 1974.

--The Red Devils are tied for second in LKC tourney participation with Williamstown. Wirt County has participated in every LKC tournament to date.

The following statistics were compiled by Bonar for CHS teams from 1964-1980:
