Schuko Wins Marshfield Tournament 132 pound Title

The Lancers put in a terrific team effort to finish in 6th place in a very strong field of 34 teams
(from all divisions) at the Marshfield Holiday Tournament this past weekend.  Topping the list of Norton placewinners was junior Deven Schuko who went undefeated, upsetting the top seed 15-9 in the semi-finals and going on to win the 132-pound championship with a hard-fought 5-3 decision in the finals.  Congratulations to Deven who became only the 4th Lancer to win a title in this prestigious event! 

Other Norton placewinners included Aidan Kahn (5th, 120 lbs), Adam Marcon (5th, 220 lbs.),
Jake Burgess (6th, 182 lbs.) and Russell Hansen (6th, 138 lbs.).  All four wrestled tough and put in a terrific effort!  Eight other Lancers won matches and contributed team points but did not place.  Among them were Devin Santangelo, Jordan Dowdy, Anthony Cardone, Kyle Pereira and Lucas Lavallee.  These five wrestlers, along with Burgess, competed for the first time in a varsity tournament and displayed real poise, determination and skill.  

Not to be outdone, the JV Lancers competed in the Marshfield JV tournament on Monday and 6 of them went 3-0 on the day.  Brendan Merriott, Johnny Rahwan, Scott Albert, Robert Smith, Connor Merriott and Kaelan O'Neill all were winners of their 8-man tournament brackets.

Quad at No. Attleboro / Opening Home Dual Meet

It was an exciting day of wrestling on Saturday as the Lancers started off with a convincing 46-21 victory over Warwick, R.I., Veterans HS.  And though we finished strong in the second meet, it wasn't enough and we lost a heart-breaker to local rival No. Attleboro 36-33.  However, it was the last meet of the day against Plymouth No. that proved to be the most thrilling.  Tied 33-33 going into the final match, Johnny Rahwan, wrestling varsity for the first time, showed true grit and hung on to win a 4-3 decision that brought every fan to his or her feet and clinched the victory for the Lancers!   

Triple winners on the day for Norton included Andy Murphy, Deven Schuko, Russell Hansen and Alek Donovan.

Earlier in the week the Lancers downed Newton So. 53-15 for their 26th straight
home victory!

The team is now 6-1 and competes next weekend in the Marshfield Tournament.

2014 Opening Quad at Home

What an exciting day of wrestling at NHS yesterday as our defending state champion Lancers got off to a perfect 3-0 start to the new season!  Our boys overpowered Norwell 
54-22 and Nauset 55-23 before being challenged by a tough and competitive Taunton team.  That meet went down to the final few matches and in the end Norton won 44-29.  

Juniors Aidan Kahn (126), Deven Schuko (138), Anthony Cardone (160), and Lucas Lavallee (195) along with senior co-captains Russell Hansen (145), Elliott Johnson (170) and Alek Donovan (285) went undefeated for the day with Schuko winning pinning all three of his opponents.  Cardone and Lavallee are new to the varsity line-up and showed outstanding poise as "rookies".  In fact it was Lavallee's overtime victory that clinched the victory over Taunton.

Our JVs had a very good day, too, winning 16 or 21 matches wrestled.  Freshman Patrick Feeney and junior Taylor Lucero led the way with two pins each.

And then today, our new middle school wrestling team traveled to Dighton Rehobeth where they won handily over a young, start-up D-R team.  These youngsters are the future Norton High wrestler and showed much promise. 

The Lancers will face Newton South at home on Wednesday evening and then will travel to No. Attleboro on Saturday where we will compete in a quad there against the Red Raiders as well as Plymouth No. and Warwick Vets.  This will be a good test for our boys as we prepare for a challenging season ahead.  

Many thanks to all the parents and guardians who helped make our concession stand so successful yesterday!

Go, Lancers!
