March 20, 1976 — Northwestern’s Chris Wentz finishes in second place while Lehighton’s Rick Koch places fourth at the PIAA State Wrestling Class 2A tournament. Wentz earns a pin of Williams Valley’s Dane Willard in 3:22 of the semifinal round, before falling to Jan Clark of Northern Bedford, 8-5, in the finals. Wentz rallies from a 6-0 deficit, but his comeback attempt for the gold medal comes up just short. Koch ends fourth after dropping a 5-2 decision in the semis and a 5-3 decision in the consolations.
