Valley Sports Report
STATE COLLEGE - It was a reunion of sorts here Sunday at Rec. Hall as a trio of former NTL wrestlers were in action during Penn State's 23-16 win over Lehigh in a battle of nationally-ranked NCAA Division I wrestling teams.

Athens grad A.J. Burkhart, a senior at Lehigh, dropped a 5-3 decision to Penn State's Donovan Ball in their 184-pound match-up that put the Lions ahead 17-10.

At 133 pounds, Penn State's defending national champion Roman Bravo-Young forged a 19-7 major decision win over Troy grad Sheldon Seymour to tie the match at 4-4.

Later in the match, Wyalusing grad Creighton Edsell tied the match for Penn State with a 2-1 win over Brian Meyer in the 165-pound bout.

On Saturday, Burkhart posted a 9-3 win over Lock Haven's Thomas Dressler as part of the Mountain Hawks' 37-3 win.

Lehigh returns to action at the Collegiate Wrestling Duals in Niceville, Fla., Dec. 20-21. Lehigh will face Central Michigan and No. 1 Iowa on Dec. 20 and will face an opponent to be determined on Dec. 21.
