Four Big Wins For Lancer Wrestlers

Junior Elliott Johnson
Four wins this week put the Lancers at 18-1 so far this season and tied for first 
place in the Tri-Valley League.  On Thursday Norton traveled to Holliston and 
scored a convincing 46-22 win over the defending league champions.  Though
the Panthers jumped out to a 15-0 lead, the Lancers came back to tie the score
at 15-15.  Holliston again went ahead 22-21 before Norton ran off four straight
wins to close the deal.  Key victories came from Russell Hansen, Zach Scarpetti,
JT Taylor and Alek Donovan. 

In a home quad on Saturday the Lancers completely dominated Cohasset 68-11, 
Dighton-Rehobeth 60-11and Bristol Plymouth-Coyle Cassidy 62-10 on the 
strength of 28 pins and 2 tech falls on the day.  Ahrayah Saintius, Deven Schuko, 
Russell Hansen, Mike Travers, and Adam Marcon all went 3-0.  So did JT Taylor, 
Branden Pike, Myles McAlpine, Elliott Johnson and Alek Donovan who each won 
all three of their matches by pins.  The biggest win of the day was Hansen's 7-6 
decision over his opponent from BP-CC who is ranked 8th in the state.

Norton Wrestlers Sweep Quad at Oliver Ames

Senior Ahrayah Saintius
The Lancers knew that they would face tough competition at Saturday's quad at 
Oliver Ames but rose to the occasion and swept all three meets with wins over 
Weston (51-9), Sabis (53-12), and Oliver Ames (54-26).  Robbie Douglas, Aidan 
Kahn, Ahrayah Saintius, JT Taylor, Myles McAlpine, Elliott Johnson, Mike Travers 
and Adam Marcon all went 3-0 on the day with Taylor getting all three of his wins 
by pin.  JT is now 20-2 this season with 19 pins!

Yet the most impressive performances were put in by Kahn who defeated the
#4 and #6 ranked D-3 wrestlers at his weight class in the state and Saintius
who knocked off the #1 ranked wrestler at his weight.  In addition Elliott Johnson
beat the #3 man at his weight.  It was a day filled with upsets by a high-spirited
Lancer team.

Norton, now 14-1 for the season, will travel to Holliston on Wednesday to face
the defending Tri-Valley League champion Panthers. 

Go, Lancers!

Peckham Championship #5

2014 Peckham Tournament Champs
Following a 73-3 thumping of AMSA-Assabet Valley on Wednesday, the Lancers mounted a strong team effort at Canton High School on Saturday that resulted in a 5th James Peckham Tournament championship for Norton in its last six appearances.  Led by Robbie Douglas, Ahrayah Saintius, JT Taylor, Myles McAlpine, Mike Travers and Alek Donovan who all brought home gold medals, the Lancers margin of victory was 88 points.  It was the second Peckham title for Taylor, McAlpine and Travers.  In addition Taylor was voted the "Outstanding Wrestler" of the tournament and Branden Pike, who finished third, earned the award for "Most Pins".  Aidan Kahn and Elliott Johnson both finished as runners-up while Deven Schuko, Zach Scarpetti, Grant Monast, along with Pike, finished third and Russell Hansen as well as Adam Marcon both finished fourth. 

On Sunday, Kyle Pereira went undefeated at Brookline High School to win the 165 pound
freshman state championship becoming only the second Norton wrestler to do so.

The Lancers, now 10-1, travel to Ashland on Wednesday to face Ashland-Keefe Tech in an important Tri-Valley League meet.

Senior co-captain Mike Travers
What a day for Norton!  Down 27-0 to a young but talented Somerset-Berkley team, the Lancers came roaring back on the strength of six pins to win 36-33.  Sharon took an early 
13-9 lead in the second meet, but our boys won nine straight matches, eight by pins, to win overwhelmingly 63-13.  Hingham finished just three points behind Norton at last weekend's Marshfield Tournament and handed the Lancers a loss last season.  In this third meet of the day the Harbormen promised to put up a tough challenge.  But Norton rose to the occasion, 
took an early 9-6 lead and never looked back as the Lancers ran up a 57-16 win which included nine pins!  

Outstanding performances came from all three senior co-captains JT Taylor, Myles McAlpine and Mike Travers who each recorded three pins on the day, Travers pinning defending state champion John Kay of Hingham.  Senior Grant Monast also had a big day pinning all three of his opponents.  Junior Adam Marcon won all three of his matches as well, two by pin.  Juniors Robbie Douglas, Alek Donovan and Elliott Johnson each won two matches, as did senior Branden Pike.  The JV Lancers improved to 3-1 on the season winning 12 of 16 matches wrestled on the day. 

Norton will travel to Marlboro on Wednesday to face AMSA-Assabet Valley in its first 
Tri-Valley League meet.  

Go, Lancers!
