(February 2, 2001) -- No Wacky "Wrestling" Federation antics or acrobatics. No creepy Vince McMahon-types spewing hype.

The dual meet between Spencerport and Canandaigua won't need any of that to generate excitement when they meet tomorrow at 7 p.m.

Canandaigua (16-0) is ranked No. 1 in the state and has beaten several of the other top-10 schools to get there. A win over No.6 Spencerport (9-1), Section V's top team the last 12 years, eliminates any doubt which team is the area's best.

At least until the Section V Class A championships Feb. 16-17 at Fairport.

"This is for bragging rights," Spencerport coach Bill Jacoutot said.

The Braves, in 1994, were the last team from the section to beat Spencerport in a dual. They get another shot at the Rangers in their own gym.

"They've always been good," Canandaigua middleweight Eric Mullen said. "You always say maybe we'll get them next year but they always have JVs that step up.

"They've basically whipped us the last few years and this year we want it to be different."

Jacoutot said that this is the most anticipated dual between area teams since 1984 when East Rochester and Brighton met with the state's No. 1 ranking on the line. All 1150 tickets for the Canandaigua-Spencerport meet have been sold. Cananadaigua sold 800 on Saturday alone and Spencerport's share of 250 were gone in 20 minutes.

Spencerport's wresters are saying, at least publicly, that it's just another meet. They do acknowledge that they are a slight underdog.

"We wrestle the same no matter who our opponent is," Spencerport lightweight Jared Moreland said.

The Rangers are facing a Canandaigua team that has defeated five of the state's top 10 large schools in duals.

Canandaigua also won tournaments in Huntington (Long Island) and Jamestown, where Braves won 5 of 7 head-to-head matchups with Spencerport wrestlers.
