In one of the most dramatic moments in the storied history of the Lehigh Valley Athletic Club founded in 1999, Jeff Buxton becomes Director of the LVWC and coach of its freestyle team.
The announcement comes after a unanimous vote by the LVWC Board of Directors in a move considered vital to its dynamic Mission Plan.
A science teacher at Parkland HS beginning in 2009, Jon Trenge remains a part-time participant in LVWC workouts and activities and is one of the three most active coaching mentors in the Club’s 10-year history. His 5th place finish at the 2004 Olympic Trials is Lehigh’s highest since Bobby Weaver in 1984. One of Lehigh’s all-time best athletes, Trenge ranks 1st in LU career wins (133), third in bonus wins and 4th in falls.
Under his quiet exterior lays a background of intensity and great success as a wrestler and coach. A classic late bloomer, Santoro earned one medal at the PA States for Bethlehem Catholic, third as a senior in 1984. He then won a National Prep title and Outstanding Wrestler award presented to him by Olympic Champion, Bobby Weaver, a good omen for his future.
