One of the greatest wrestlers during the golden age of wrestling at Washington and Lee was Tom Fuller '42.
Fuller went undefeated during his varsity career as a standout in the 136-pound class. As two-year captain, Fuller was the last captain for a team coached by W&L legend and Hall of Fame inductee Archie Mathis. Fuller was a two-time Southern Conference individual champion, winning titles in 1941 and 1942. There was no meet during his sophomore season, but he won Virginia's AAU Championship that season.
Fuller's 28-0 record during his career included 17 pins. Fuller helped lead W&L to team success as well. The Generals compiled a dual meet record of 17-2 during his career, including a perfect 6-0 mark during his senior year. The only losses during his career were in 1941 to the University of Illinois and the University of North Carolina, but the Generals later avenged the loss to UNC by winning the Southern Conference championship.
Extremely active on campus, Fuller was inducted into Omicron Delta Kappa, was editor of the Southern Collegian and served on the athletic committee.
