Blanc Selected EWL Wrestler of the Week



LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - Junior Obenson Blanc (Naples, Fla./Lely) has been named Eastern Wrestling League (EWL) Wrestler of the Week for his efforts in the week ending Dec. 17. This is the second EWL honor for Blanc and the third for the Lock Haven University wrestling squad (5-3, 1-1 EWL).

Blanc had an impeccable week started off with the biggest upset of his career. The junior 125-pounder, ranked No. 6, topped No. 3 Mark McKnight 9-8 on a takedown with 13 seconds left. Blanc followed that up with three victories Sunday at the Clarion Duals, beating No. 20 Steve Mytych (Drexel) 7-4 and getting a pair of tech fall wins. Blanc got the mercy-rule victories over Scott Morgan (Pitt-Johnstown) 19-3 and Matt Benedetti (East Stroudsburg)18-3. The last win was the 70th of Blanc's career.

Blanc and the rest of the Bald Eagles are back in action Friday, Dec. 29 at 10 a.m. when they travel to the Southern Scuffle.
