Don  Sayenga

Don Sayenga won two straight Middle Atlantic Conference heavyweight wrestling championships while at Lafayette. As one of Lafayette's outstanding wrestlers, he once put together a string of 23 straight victories including 15 pins.

Sayenga's interest in wrestling extends to the history and developments of the sport. He was written on those subjects for the Encyclopedia Britannica and has chronicled wrestling as "The Oldest Sport" for "Amateur Wrestling News." He was named to the Citizens Savings Athletic Foundation Wrestling Hall of Fame. The Bethlehem resident was cited as America's outstanding historian of amateur wrestling.
