@Breif.Head:Hluschak gets win in regularseason finale at East Stroudsburg
ESU senior Adam Hluschak, posted a win in his final action at Koehler Fieldhouse in Kutztown's 28-14 dual win over East Stroudsburg University on Monday night.
The Northern Lehigh graduate posted a 7-4 decision at 141 pounds for his 11th consecutive win - all in duals - and 15th in his last 16 matches. He improved to 28-6 on the season, 12-2 within DII, and was 16-2 in duals this year and 38-14 in duals as a three-year starter.
Hluschak used a 7-1 first period, with two takedowns and three near-fall points, to post his 78th career win for the Warriors. Ritchie did all of his scoring in the second period, getting an escape, takedown and two-point turn for his five points.
The Warriors completed their dual schedule and will prepare for the Division II Super Region 1 Championships on February 24-25 at UNC-Pembroke. ESU has had four individuals qualify for the NCAA Division II Championships, including Hluschak (2010) in its first two seasons in Division II.
