 THE SUNDAY NEWS, December 18, 1966
                           West York Matmen Bow To CV
         UNDEFEATED in league action, the West York grapplers bowed to a superior Conestoga Valley
     wrestling team Saturday at the Bulldog's gymnasium.
         West York got the match off to an even start, halving the first four events.  But for the remaining
     eight events, the visiting Buckskins walked off with six wins.
         Of the four Bulldog wins, two came on the strength of decisions and two were the results of pins.
     In the 103 pound class, sophomore Bill Luckenbaugh pinned Bob Snader in three minutes and 10
     seconds.  Bill, whose older brother was a former state wrestling champion, is undefeated so far
     this season.  Jeff Linebaugh was able to decision his opponent, Don Knerr by a 5-2 score in the 120
     pound class.  In the 138 pound event, Steve Kunkle decisioned Dennis Kolb 6-0.  In the heavyweight
    
category, Ron Emenheiser pinned Dale Schober in 5:40.
         Conestoga Valley's Allen Uyeda decisioned Ed Mummert 14-0.  Uyeda was a state champion in the
     127 pound class last year.         12/18/66

                                 B
ill Blacksmith Paces Lock Haven To Title!
    EAST STROUDSBURG - Led by Bill Blacksmith, former Cedar Cliff high school grappler who
  captured his fourth straight conference title, Lock Haven took the Pennsylvania State
 
Colleges Conference mat crown here last night.
    Teammate Jerry Swope, also bidding for his fourth individual crown, was outpointed by his
  former high school teammate, Gary Cook, now competing for East Stroudsburg.
    Bill's brother, Jim Blacksmith, former Cedar Cliff athlete and Big 33 footballer, was pinned
  for the first time in the 160-pound finals.  Chet Dalgewicz of East Stroudsburg ended the
  2-2 match at 5:24.
    The Bald Eagles of Coach Gray Simons took team honors with 94 points, 14 more than East
  Stroudsburg.  Lock Haven, Bloomsburg and the host school each crowned three champs,
  while fourth place Clarion had a pair.
    FOUR MATMEN who won titles last year hit the winners' circle again: Blacksmith at 152;
  Ken Warnick, Clarion, 137; Jim Rolley, Bloomsburg, 130; and Tom Vargo, Bloomsburg, 191.
    Dethroned champs were Swope at 177 and Clarion's Frank Grundler*.  Three Shippensburg
  State entries who had gained the finals were thwarted in their title bids.  Lee Miller, 123-
  pounder from Tyrone, lost to East Stroudsburg's Bobby Guzzo, 13-4; Vyn Redden, 130, from
  Central Dauphin, was pinned by Rolley; and Bernie Lomman, 137, from Cedar Cliff, bowed
  to Warnick.

*note: Lock Haven's Tom Elling was decisioned by Clarion's Frank Grundler, 4-0, in the 191-
  pound PSCC 1966 semi-finals.  Tom is the webmaster for PA Wrestling and a contributor to
  the westyorkwrestlingalumni.com website!
