Huge thanks to Mr. Clapp for getting some awesome pictures of Jaden during his finals match and Dean (I think?) for throwing him his headgear after Jadens broke. Awesome team culture in Norton, Pat has always been one of the most helpful coaches to me. Thanks, see you guys at All-States, good luck!

A few more Lancer Legends added to the banner.  A lancer legend is an individual who during his four years as a wrestler has accumulated 100 victories or more.  100 victories in a four year career is very difficult to achieve but when you have amazing talent and the best coaches in the world, anything is possible.  congratulation to all the new inductees🤼🥇🏆

[05/27/21]   Our wrestlers were on fire beating Norwood 60-18 in a critical Tri-Valley League meet. A tremendous team effort led to a lopsided victory for the undefeated Lancers! Both Nate and Anthony Tripolone pinned strong opponents as did Ben Khokhlan, Danyel Ayala, Ryan Browne and
Jason Winston. Rocco Tarantino, Steven Chaffee and Jace Lunn were the other winners for Norton.

The team faces defendingTVL champions
Holliston next Tuesday at home.

A win will clinch the league championship
for the Lancers!

Our JVs remained undefeated with an 18-18 tie with pins by Brendon Lasker, Jace Lunn and Nolan Winfield.

Go, Lancers!

[05/20/21]   WOW...JUST WOW‼️

In a nail-biter this evening, the Lancers prevailed against a strong Ashland team 40-33. The contest came down to the very last match where sophomore Danyel Ayala, giving up 60 LBS‼️to his Clocker rival, clinched the victory for Norton with a last minute pin! Other Lancer winners included sophomores Jason Winston and Gabe Thomasson, juniors Rocco Tarantino and Anthony Tripolone, and seniors Steven Chaffee, Ryan Browne and co-captain Nick Andreasen.
The team, still undefeated, travels to Norwood next Wednesday for another challenging Tri-Valley League meet.

Go, Lancers!

One of my friends asked "Why would you pay so much money for your kid to wrestle”?

Well I have a confession to make; I don't invest the money for my kid to wrestle.
So, if I am not paying for them to wrestle, what am I paying for?

- I pay for those moments when my child becomes so tired they want to quit, but doesn't.

- I pay for those days when my child comes home from school and is "too tired or too sore" to go to practice, but goes anyway.

- I pay for my child to learn to be disciplined, focused, and dedicated.

- I pay for my child to learn to take care of their body and their equipment.

- I pay for my child to learn to work with others and to be a good team mate, gracious in defeat, and humble in success.

- I pay for my child to learn to deal with disappointment, when they don’t get that win they hoped for, but my child goes back week after week giving their best shot.

- I pay for my child to learn to make and accomplish goals.

- I pay for my child to respect, not only themselves, but other wrestlers, officials and coaches.

- I pay for my child to learn that it takes hours and hours, years and years, of hard work and practice to create a champion and that success does not happen overnight.

- I pay for my child to be proud of small achievements, and to work towards long term goals.

- I pay for the opportunity my child has and will have to make life-long friendships, create lifelong memories, to be as proud of their achievements as I am.

- I pay so that my child can be out on the mat instead of in front of a screen...

. . . I could go on but, to be short, I don't pay for the matches; I pay for the opportunities that Wrestling provides my child with to develop attributes that will serve my child well throughout their life and give an opportunity to bless the lives of others. From what I have seen so far I think it is a great investment! (Borrowed and Adapted)

[11/22/20]   Wrestlers and Families -

The MIAA met yesterday and approved moving wrestling to the spring rather than canceling or starting later this winter due to Covid. Though there are many details to be worked out, it looks like we will have a season!

The season will run from April 26 - July 3.

We have the potential to be among the best ever! So keep your grades up, stay healthy and fit and start setting
your personal and team goals for the season ahead.

This has been a difficult year for all of us and it is a great relief to look forward to having the opportunity
to be a team again and to compete!

Go, Lancers

A note from Coach Coleman:

Many of us are biding our time and I, for one, think back often to our wrestling season. Today I am writing about individual highlights and there is
nothing more satisfying in our sport than avenging a previous loss and the Lancers this season did a lot of that!

Here are a few examples:

Steven Chaffee lost twice to the Holliston wrestler, once in the TVL dual meet early in the season and again at the D-3 State Duals, but came back to beat him in the State consolation finals to take 3rd place!

Dean Santangelo lost to the B-P wrestler in the sectional finals but came back to beat him twice, once at States to advance to the consolation finals to place 4th and again at All-States!

Dan Clapp lost to the Sandwich wrestler at Marshfield but came back to beat him in the sectional semi-finals to advance to the finals!

Gabe Thomasson got pinned by the Hingham wrestler at Marshfield but came back to beat him one week later in the dual meet!

Nick Andreasen lost to the Hingham wrestler at Marshfield and came back to pin him one week later in the dual meet. Even better, Nick lost three times to the Hanover wrestler, once at Scituate, once at Marshfield
and again in the sectional finals. But he figured him out and finally beat him at States to place 7th!

Nathan Arduino was pinned by the Hollston wrestler in the TVL dual meet but came back to pin him at the D-3 duals in a key victory for the Lancers as we went on to avenge our early season loss to the Panthers!

Coach Francis’ highlight moment:

My highlight of the season is when our boys took down Cohasset and Wayland back to back. Our Norton tough blue collar team would not be denied, the coaching staff was especially proud of the effort and results of that day.

These are just a few of the individual highlights this season. I'd love to hear from wrestlers and parents telling of their best victory, whether it was a JV or varsity match.

Go, Lancers!

named Tri-Valley League all-stars:

Steven Chaffee (106), Dean Santangelo (120), Alex Turcotte (126),
Dan Clapp (138), Nick Andreasen (170) & Nathan Arduino (182)

Six Norton all-stars is more than any other Tri-Valley League team and a credit to the hard work and toughness that our team is known for.

Very proud of these wrestlers and the success of our program this season.

In addition, Norton was recognized by the TVL coaches for outstanding sportsmanship!

Go, Lancers

One of our mightiest little Lancers Jr at his last practice of the season tonight at Bristol County Agricultural High!

5 years old and in his first year of wrestling with Dighton-Rehoboth Youth Wrestling!

He has earned 8 medals, one trophy and a lot of new friends.

The coaches, Jacob Bettencourt, Matt Oldmixon, Tom Ranley and Adam Weafer did an incredible job with the team.

Mom and Dad are beyond thankful and proud of their boy, as are we all and what he has accomplished in such a short period of time.

Gaining experience to pave the way to someday becoming a Norton Lancer Wrestler!

Congratulations JR!!

👏👏...WHOOSH

This was a message from a great full parent of a wrestler from another team. Just shows how much Norton parents help and are involved in the programs success. Sometimes it’s just a little things.

Huge thanks to Mr. Clapp for getting some awesome pictures of Jaden during his finals match and Dean (I think?) for throwing him his headgear after Jadens broke. Awesome team culture in Norton, Pat has always been one of the most helpful coaches to me. Thanks, see you guys at All-States, good luck!

[02/23/20]   Wrestlers & Families -

The Lancers battled hard and finished 5th at D-3 States behind Melrose,
Wayland, Taconic and Holliston and well ahead of D-3 South sectional rivals
Cohasset (14th place) and Foxboro (19th place). Steven Chaffee was our
highest place winner (3rd), followed by Dean Santangelo & Alex Turcotte
(both 4th) and Dan Clapp, Nick Andreasen & Nathan Arduino (all 7th).
Rounding out the team scoring, Calvin Lyons & Ray Rodriguez both won
matches but didn't place. Of note, Chaffee avenged two losses to his Holliston
opponent with a 7-6 decision in the consolation finals! Santangelo avenged
his sectional finals loss to the Bristol-Plymouth wrestler as did Andreasen
who avenged his sectional finals loss to the Hanover wrestler! And Arduino
was the only Lancer to score three pins in the tournament!

The team has much to be proud of. We placed higher in this tournament than
any other D-3 South team and close behind two teams from D-3 Central that
we beat in dual meets (Wayland twice and Holliston). Now on to All-States
(D-1, D-2 & D-3 all together) at Methuen next weekend. Three Lancers have qualified for this prestigious event ( Chaffee, Santangelo & Turcotte) and three
others are first alternates ( Clapp, Andreasen & Arduino).

Go, Lancers!

On the heels of an amazing day of varsity wrestling at the D3S competition in Foxboro yesterday, two of our Lancers Daniel Baez & Jacoby Flynn who compete in our junior program (4th & 5th graders) left it all on the mats and take 4th @ 5th place respectfully in the states competition. Both have advanced to the New England’s competition in a few weeks. Congratulations to both of you! Enjoy the ride home...you earned it! 👏👏..whoosh

[02/16/20]   Friends -

Though we were disappointed to finish 2nd to Foxboro by only
one point (220 - 219) at today's D-3 South Sectional championship tournament, we should be very proud about beating out Cohasset who was favored to win and bringing home the runner-up trophy.

It is important to give credit where credit is due and the Warriors showed up ready to wrestle and earned their championship.

Steven Chaffee was the sole weight class champion (106) for the Lancers.

Dean Santangelo (120), Alex Turcotte (126), Dan Clapp (138), Nick Andreasen (170) and Nathan Arduino (182) made finals and finished as runners-up.

Rounding out Norton's place-finishes were Ray Rodriguez, (3rd at 220), Cal Lyons (113), Ian Barker (145), Ben Khokhlan (160), all 4th at their weights, Nate Tripolone (5th at 132)
and JD Artz (6th at 195). Though they didn't place, both Danyel Ayala (285) and Gabe Thomasson (152) won matches to score team points.

As a result, Norton qualified 10 wrestlers (1st - 4th place finishers) for D-3 States next weekend at Wayland with one alternate (5th place).

That in itself is quite an accomplishment!

Go, Lancers!

02/16/2020

While the D3S Sectionals are finishing up, the Norton Lancers are proud to introduce the first confirmed sectional champion of the 2019-2020 season. Steven Chaffee in the 106lb weight class! Hopefully more to follow! GO LANCERS!!

Great food..great time!

Home Plate in Norton will once again let us take over their establishment on Tuesday March 3, 2020 from 11:30am to 9:00pm and hold our annual Wrestling fundraiser. As in the past, Home Plate will graciously donate 20% of ALL food sales on the day to the FONW.

As in previous years, Rob, the owner has agreed to showcase our very own signature menu item the “Coleman Club” to this years fundraiser as well.

The Coleman Club is a turkey sandwich with havarti cheese and avocado on a roll! The sandwich is a favorite of our very own Coach Coleman and we added it to the menu to honor him for all he does for us. Along with the 20% we receive from the sales on the day, the sandwich will remain as a menu item until the end of April with the same 20% of sandwich sales coming back to FONW!

We are looking for raffles, liquor and volunteers to make this a success again this year.

Please share the ticket any way you can, email, text, print..whatever. When you get your check that day, show the wait staff the tickets (print or phone is acceptable) and they will add your receipt to our totals.

Come eat and drink with friends and family!!..and don’t forget to bring your 💰!..lots of great prizes!!

Thank you,
The Friends of Norton Wrestling Boosters Club
