The Lancers put up four more victories this week without some key wrestlers
in the starting line-up which is a tribute to the depth and toughness of this squad.
Wednesday was Senior Night and co-captains Russell Hansen, Elliott Johnson,
Adam Marcon and Alek Donovan were honored, along with classmates Jordan
Dowdy and Jake Kent for their outstanding legacy of achievement and sportsmanship.
Over the course of their four years at NHS, the Lancers have won 100 meets and have
lost only 8. During this time Norton has won 2 league, 3 sectional and 2 state titles and
has been awarded the State Sportsmanship Award by the wrestling officials association!
Following the Senior Night Ceremony, the Lancers went on to defeat Holliston 44-25.
The Panthers always are a tough opponent and the win puts the Lancers in position to
challenge undefeated Hopkinton for the league championship if they can get past
Bellingham-Medway this Wednesday evening.
On Friday the team traveled to Cohasset for a quad meet and beat the host Skippers
52-25 as well as Bristol-Plymouth / Coyle-Cassidy 48-10 and Dighton-Rehobeth 33-7.
This puts the team's record at 17-3.
Undefeated through the week were Deven Schuko (132), Jodan Dowdy (152),
Connor Merriott and Lucas Lavallee (splitting duties at 195), Adam Marcon (220)
and Alek Donovan (285).
