Getting a Load of Rich-Orr
Referee Ralph Lulowski at Vestal takes a long look at Windsor farmer Richie Kohlbach and his attempts to fend off Cornell frosh Carlton Orr of Greene, then appears to caution Kohlbach. Orr, who followed three Section 4 titles with a sensational first Cornell season, won the 147-pound final, 11-3, in the first Binghamton YMCA Open last night.
