The wrestling team got off to a strong start at home Saturday with a clean sweep of its first quad meet, defeating Norwell 54-24, Nauset 70-9 and Taunton 57-9.  Triple winners for the Lancers included sophomores Aidan Kahn and Deven Schuko, juniors Elliott Johnson, Adam Marcon and Alek Donovan as well as senior captains JT Taylor, Myles McAlpine and Mike Travers.  Freshmen Andy Murphy and Ben Combs showed real promise, too.  The team takes on Hopkinton at 7:00 Wednesday evening

at home in its first Tri-Valley League contest.




Prior to the start of Saturday’s meet time was taken to honor the 2012-13 wrestling team which went 27-3 and set a new NHS record for most wins in a season.  In the process the team captured its second D-3 Central Sectional championship and finished as runners-up in the D-3 State championships.  Captains Jack Cuneo (106) and Stephen Hudson (132 with 104 pins) both went over 100+ career wins to become the 5th & 6th members of the elite NHS "Century Club".  In addition, Stephen along with JT Taylor, became the 10th & 11th individual sectional champions in NHS history.   Mike Travers set team records for most wins (45) and most pins (35) in a season.  Two new team banners were raised and additions were made to two individual banners.
