|League & State Champions!|
A strong Hopkinton team, undefeated in league meets, came to Norton Wednesday
night determined to win the Tri-Valley championship. But in an impressive display
of intensity and composure, the Lancers won 10 of 14 matches to run away from
the Hillers 47-18 to clinch their 5th TVL title in 8 years!
Leading the way were Norton's three stellar senior captains, JT Taylor (32-3),
Myles McAlpine (30-4) and Mike Travers (28-1) who all pinned their opponents.
Other pins were recorded by sophomores Deven Schuko and Aidan Kahn. In
addition, key wins came from seniors Ahrayah Saintius and Branden Pike and
juniors Russell Hansen, Elliott Johnson and Alek Donovan.
The JV Lancers were also victorious extending their record to 15-1-1.
This was the last home meet of the season and Norton's seniors were honored
for their remarkable achievements including 2 league championships, 2 sectional
championships, 2 state championships and a remarkable record of 81-5!
We are very proud of these fine young men:
