MATTES WINS 100th CAREER MATCH AS ETOWN FINISHES FIFTH AT MAC CHAMPIONSHIPS

ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. --- Senior Art Mattes (Bethlehem, PA/Bethlehem Catholic) became only the sixth wrestler in Elizabethtown history, and the second in the last week, to reach the 100 career victory plateau Saturday as Elizabethtown finished fifth at the Middle Atlantic Conference Championships, hosted by Wilkes University.

Mattes won his 99th career match Friday when he defeated Albright's Ryan Scarduzio 16-6 in the opening round of 197 pound competition. Mattes went on to defeat Delaware Valley's Mika Miller, 3-2, in the semifinal round Saturday to win his hundredth bout. However, Mattes lost the 197 pound championship, 3-2, to Andy Lausier of Lycoming to finish second in the conference.

Other Elizabethtown place winners included 125-pounder Bill Van Winkle (Hummelstown, PA/Lower Dauphin) and 149-pounder Brian Alwine (Hanover, PA/South Western), each of whom finished fourth. Van Winkle lost a 5-1 bout in the semifinal round Saturday but came back to win a 9-1 decision in the consolation, and Alwine lost to number one-seeded Andy Vogel of Messiah in the semifinal and won a 7-3 consolation bout.

Out of eight teams in the MAC, Elizabethtown placed fifth with 21 points.
