|Senior Ahrayah Saintius|
Though the Lancer wrestlers came away from Saturday's quad meet at Plymouth No. disappointed to lose 41-24 to perennial local power No. Attleboro, they were proud of beating Plymouth No. 48-33 and Newton No. 54-27. For a small D-3 school, Norton stood tall all day against these D-1 and D-2 programs.
Several Norton boys went undefeated against this tough competition. Ahrayah Saintius went 3-0 with 2 pins, while JT Taylor and Alek Donovan each went 3-0 with 3 pins. Aidan Kahn, Deven Schuko, Myles McAlpine, Elliott Johnson and Mike Travers each went 2-1 on the day. McAlpine's only loss was an 8-7 decision.
The JV team lost 26-17 in their competition and now hold a record of 1-1. Anthony Cardone, Kyle Pereira, George Reese and Kaelan O'Neill remain undefeated at the JV level.
The team will work hard this week to prepare for the 32-team Marshfield Holiday Tournament which will take place on Friday-Saturday, 12/27-28 (varsity) and Sunday, 12/29 (JV).
