1970 - 71 Season

8th Season 10-3-1 (82-20-2 career record);

Team Captain Jack Miller

From the Comet yearbook:

Wrestling, the oldest sport in history, has gradually found its way in Nazareth as one of the most popular spectator sports. With a temporary home in Holy Family gymnasium, the grapplers posted a 10-3-1 record, good for a tie for second place and gave the enthusiastic fans a real show for their money.

In the opening match against Southern Lehigh, Coach Nunamaker's gang showed everyone that they were once again in the race for the LNL champions as they whipped the Spartans 38-9. In the next match agaist ever tough Phillipsburg, the Eagles put up a good showing but lost 25-16. They came back and beat East Stroudsburg 39-13 but against Easton the team lost 21-15 with the final outcome uncertain until the last match. From that point on the Eagles poured it on and showed brute strength as they destroyed six teams in a row. Nazareth overpowered Pen Argyl 39-12, surprised Northampton 39-9, whitewashed Bangor 52-0, beat tough Parkland 41-9, and trounced Palisades 49-6.

After a real heart-pounding tie with Wilson, 20-20, the Eagles lost to eventual champion Hellertown 24-12. The Eagles rebounded and won their final two outings, beating Northwestern 39-9 and tripping Pocono Mountain 31-11.

Even though the Blue Eagles had three league winners, we failed to send anyone through districs. Both Coach Nunamaker and Coach Lewis are looking forward to another successful year with new teams being added to the schedule.
