Richard M. Teitelman Junior High School

For junior high school, I attended Richard M. Teitelman. My first girlfriend was nicknamed Zagnut. My second girlfriend was Kathy Buganski.

I continued wrestling here. In seventh grade I weighed 119 pounds. In eighth grade I grew. I began wrestling at 126 and ended up at 135. I finished fourth in the regional tournament; David Craig finished first. That tournament was held at Vineland High School. In one of the preliminary matches I was rolled on my right shoulder. I let out a shriek that stopped all matches. I was taped up and went out and pinned my opponent. Ha!

The first time I paddled the Batsto was during these years. Our class trips were spent here. I recall purposely tipping our canoes frequently.

One thought on “Richard M. Teitelman Junior High School”

  1. Well, my memory has failed me. As one can see from the certificate at the wrestling tournament, I wrestled 120 that year. Perhaps the weight gain was when I wrestled in ninth grade. That must be it.

    Ah, my memory fails as I age.
