Easton lost two state champions and five other starters after the 1973-74 season, and Saucon Valley returned a strong group of upperweights. The Rovers and Panthers had 34 and 17 match unbeaten streaks, respectively, as the season began.
Bethlehem Catholic flexed its muscles in an early season match up with Saucon Valley as they ended the Panthers unbeaten streak at 20 by defeating them 26-18. Mike Brown won his first match in a series of four classic bouts with Gary Albright by a 7-4 score. Liberty established itself as a team to be reckoned with as they handled Phillipsburg 32-17 in another December match.
Easton extended their unbeaten streak to 39 with a much bigger than expected 35-14 win over Bethlehem Catholic. But as they had done in seasons past, Coach Frank Gutierrez’ Liberty squad proved to be the “Streak Busters” as they defeated the Rovers 21-15 ending the streak at 41. In a mid-January “shocker”, Dieruff beat Phillipsburg for the first time in 15 years 24-22.
Liberty had all but wrapped up its first East Penn League title ever and was seeking an undefeated season. Saucon Valley had other ideas and ruined the Hurricanes’ chances 21-20. Liberty would go on to win the East Penn League and finish 12-1 overall.
Saucon Valley again won the Lehigh-Northampton Northern Division going 6-0 in the league and finishing 13-1. In the Southern Division, upstarts Pocono Mountain and Northwestern battled for the league title with Pocono Mountain triumphing 25-24 winning the division and finishing with a very good 12-2 record.
Lehighton won the Lehigh Valley League for the 2nd straight year. The Indians had an outstanding 11-1-1 record.

The Class A Districts would see the regular season trio of Easton, Liberty and Saucon Valley battling each other. The Rovers advanced six wrestlers to the finals while Liberty and Saucon Valley each advanced five. The Hurricanes had six more wrestlers in the consolation finals. The final round featured many close bouts including Freedom’s Mike Zito winning his 3rd District title by defeating 3-time District champ, Greg Shoemaker of Easton, 5-3. The Hurricanes clung to a 3.5 point lead entering the heavyweight bout and had Scott Schneider facing Easton’s Jim Palmer. With a final score of 4-4, 3-3, referees’ decision, Palmer won the bout, and Easton won the District Team title by ½ point. Final standings were as follows:
|District Class A - Team Scores|
|Saucon Valley||72||William Allen||12|
|Bethlehem Catholic||45.5||Allentown C.C.||11|
The Class B Districts saw Lehighton ride very successful quarterfinal and semi-final rounds to crown 4 champions and win the District team title.

|Notre Dame||28||Pine Grove||4|

District XI thoroughly dominated the Class A Northeast Regional action one week later with 9 champions, 9 runners-up and 10 consolation winners. Saucon Valley crowned 4 individual champions.
In Class B, Lehighton continued its strong performance with three champions to lead the District XI contingent who won 8 titles and advanced a total of 21 wrestlers to the PIAA State Championships.
The Morning Call’s Paul Reinhard summed the 1975 Class A state wrestling championship up best by writing District XI wrestlers won “an unprecedented four championships.” Easton’s Bob Weaver (98), Freedom’s Rich McIntyre (145), Liberty’s Brian Statum (155) and Saucon Valley’s Gary Albright (185) were won titles. Albright upset Bethlehem Catholic’s Mike Brown who had beaten him in their three previous meetings. Northampton’s Rick Billy and Easton’s Greg Shoemaker both lost very close decisions and finished 2nd. Easton finished 2nd in the mythical team standings.
The Class B Championships saw North Schuylkill’s Bob Harris win a state title at 138. Northwestern’s Chris Wentz finished 2nd at 98.
