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.
