                                                                 @ Bloomsburg State College
                     Pocono Record 11/19/73  ▪ ESSC senior Bill Luckenbaugh (158)
              and freshman
Don Lehman (heavyweight)... won all three of their matches
              to highlight East Stroudsburg State College action in the Bloomsburg quadrangular
              wrestling tournament Friday.  The Warriors defeated Trenton State 25-13, but lost to
              Bloomsburg, 25-16, and to Slippery Rock, 33-11.  Luckenbaugh (7-0) scored two
              pins over Bill Pasukinas of Bloomsburg in 3:27 and George Davenport of Trenton State
              in 3:46 to give him five pins for the season and 34 for his career.  The ESSC
              All-American also defeated Angelo Natoli of Slippery Rock, a Penn State Invitational
              Champion last week, for the second time this season, 4-0.  He had beaten Natoli
              in the finals of the Coast Guard Invitational, 6-0. Lehman (6-1), only a freshman
              from the same high school (West York) as Luckenbaugh, registered one of the
              night's surprises by pinning John Hohman of Bloomsburg State, a Coast Guard
              190lb. Invitational champion, in 4:30.  The Warriors' heavyweight also decisioned
              previously undefeated and current National Greco-Roman Wrestling Champion,
              Mike Dumin of Trenton State, 3-2 on riding time, and Frank Kuhl of Slippery Rock,
              9-1.  Gary Kessel (134) and Gene Ulrich (142) each won one match and tied one
              for ESSC, who are now 4-3 on the season.  Kessel (3-3), a freshman, demolished
              Rich Hicks of Trenton State, who had beaten Kessel in last season's New Jersey
              High School Regional Tourney, 12-2.  ESSC's Eugene Ulrich (2-4) gained a tie with
              Chris Messina of Slippery Rock at 142lbs.
