The prestigious Marshfield Holiday Wrestling Tournament took place this past weekend and was won by St. John’s Prep of Danvers.  No. Attleboro was a close 2nd, followed by Cumberland, RI, Plymouth South, New Bedford, Barnstable, Walpole, Norton and the rest of the 37 team field.  The Lancers fought hard for their 8th place finish which was well-ahead of any other D-3 schools in the tournament.  With two starters out of the lineup and a third forced to drop out due to injury, Norton showed real potential for another strong season ahead.  The Lancers are currently 5-1.

Senior co-captains JT Taylor (145) and Myles McAlpine (160) were the Lancers’ top performers, each reaching the semi-finals before losing close decisions.  Both finished 4th in their weight divisions.  Juniors Elliott Johnson (182) and Adam Marcon (195) were 7th and 8th respectively while sophomore Deven Schuko (126) was 8th. 

Norton will compete at Sharon on Saturday in a quad with Hingham and Somerset-Berkley.  The action starts at 10:00 AM.
