Also: Wrestling is a big draw in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley, and Satruday's match between No. 9 Nazareth (8-0) and Northampton (11-0) will be no exception. Nazareth is ranked No. 1 in the state in Class AAA by Keystone Wrestling Rankings. Northampton is No. 3.

Nazareth coach Ray Nunamaker, whose gym holds 1800, says everybody who comes might not get a seat, but still should see the match.

"The last time Northampton was here, we piped closed-circuit TV in the cafeteria," he said. "We had another 200-300 in there."

Northampton defeats Nazareth in the dual meet 33-25 for Nazareth's only loss of the season. The Blue Eagles win in the semi-finals of the District Dual Meet Tournament 34-20.

Nazareth defeats Northampton for the Christmas City Tournament (226.5-188), District Individual Tournament (201.5-186.5), and finishes 2nd to Northampton's 3rd at the Northeast Regional Tournament (86-85).
