Munhall boxer wins Eastern Trials


Munhall’s Jesse Lubash won the 152-pound division at the USA Boxing Eastern Trials Saturday in Cocoa Beach, Fla., Saturday to qualify for the U.S. championships next month.

Despite facing a hometown favorite in Orlando’s Robert Burwell, Lubash outscored Burwell, 29-22, in the welterweight division final.

Lubash, 21, a Duquesne University student, qualifies for the U.S. championships June 2-8 in Colorado Springs, Colo. The top eight finishers in each class qualify for the 2008 Olympic Trials box-offs.
