Cornell College (IA) wrestlers recreate historic team photo
May 19, 2017


Seventy years ago a team from Cornell College upset the U.S. collegiate wrestling powerhouses by winning both the NCAA and AAU national championships.

Their legacy remains to this day, especially with Cornell Head Wrestling Coach Mike Duroe and his team. Duroe and members of the 2017 team recently recreated a 1947 photo of the national championship team departing the Mount Vernon train depot for the AAU meet in San Francisco.
