The ECAC lists Bloomsburg as the champion, but contemporary news reports list the above score. Obviously, something is incorrect; either Cheyney is the champion, the score was reported incorrectly, or this result was later vacated. The 1976 NCAA Guide is no help, as it does not list scores for either school.
