Nazareth, Becahi win District 11 championships

Nazareth beat Parkland on a tiebreaker, while Bethlehem Catholic beat Saucon Valley in a rout in the District 11 dual meet championships Saturday night.

The Blue Eagles claimed the 3A title with a thrilling 29-28 win over Parkland.

A Parkland pin in the last bout forced a tie score at 28-28, but Nazareth was declared the winner because it had won more bouts.

Becahi won its fourth consecutive 2A District title with a 70-3 demolition of Colonial League champ Saucon Valley.

Saucon Valley and Parkland both won their ultimate qualifier matches though, which earned both teams a berth in their respective PIAA state tournaments.

Nazareth and Becahi will both wrestle in Hershey starting Thursday.

Also on Saturday, Easton coach Steve Powell collected his 500th career win.
