EAST STROUDSBURG – Seventh-ranked Mercyhurst improved its record to 8-3 overall, 4-0 against Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference foes with a sweep of Kutztown and East Stroudsburg.
Originally scheduled as Friday/Saturday dual meets, winter weather forced the matches to be rescheduled as a doubleheader at East Stroudsburg Friday night.
Seven of 10 Mercyhurst wrestlers were undefeated on the night, including six who scored bonus points in the team scoring.
With his two victories, August Mizia, a Bentworth graduate, moves into third place on the all-time wins list at 108, surpassing 2009 165 lbs National Champion Josh Shields.
He is now one win shy of tying Zack Schafer (109) for second place and 11 wins from tying the all-time mark held by Andy Lamancusa (119).
