Below is a segment of a highlight tape that covered the 1996 state wrestling championships. The video features an interview with Spartan cheerleaders before Troy Lietzau stepped onto the mat to defend his 152 pound state championship in that year’s finals. The video was produced at the time by Shockley Communications, which was later bought by Quincy Newspapers, Inc. A big thanks to them for allowing us to use and post the video here.
This is the type of hard-to-find video that I’m looking to bring to Spartanwrestling.com so alumni of all ages can enjoy the content we post here. If anyone has any video from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s or 2000s that they’d like posted here, shoot me an email and we can talk about getting that up here. The more the merrier is what I say.
That being said, enjoy the four minutes of tape below an emotional Troy Lietzau wins his second state championship for the Spartans…
wow I wish I could have watched a few matchs. I can tell u who most of the cheerleaders are!
