Today we honor another inspirational Norton High School Wrestling alum Jacob Burgess. Jacob or “Sunshine” as the wrestling families called him was an outstanding four year wrestler. His positive attitude and smile led to his nickname which he carried proudly. After graduation, Jacob enlisted in the Marine Corp. Jacob became a Corporal with the title of radio communications supervisor. Jacob was deployed to Afghanistan and returned safely after his tour was finished. Jacob left the military after serving 4 years as a Combat Vet and now enjoys life with his beautiful wife and daughter. Thank you Jacob for your service, best wishes always.

Yesterday the team and families gathered for a well-deserved celebration for a state championship team and their loyal fans!

In addition to delicious food and empowering speeches there were numerous awards presented. Congratulations to all!

We, The Friends of Norton Wrestling Boosters Club began a merit award a few years ago asking our graduating wrestlers to turn in an essay on what being a Norton High School wrestler means to them and what have they learned from the experience. The essays are given to numerous chosen staff with the students names blacked out to protect anonymity and are evaluated. The staff then choose two students with the best essays. We are proud to announce this years FONW senior merit awards are awarded to Nick Andreasen and Nate Arduino. They receive $500 each to help with college expenses. Both outstanding student-athletes, team leaders, reliable hard workers and terrific young men!

There was also the “changing of the guards” as you will. New captains are chosen by the wrestlers themselves. These individuals, in their peers eyes exemplify the leadership, dedication and commitment to wrestling that will lead them into battle towards yet another championship season! Next years Co-captains elect we’re announced and with great pride the chosen wrestlers are Ben Khokhlan, Anthony Tripolone, Nate Tripolone (yes brothers!) and Thomas Mulvaney. These young men will provide strong leadership to get the Lancers ready for another exciting season ahead.

As Coach Francis says, the best championship will be the next one!

Enjoy the summer!

Go, Lancers

MIAA WRESTLING CHAMPIONSHIPS
Danyel Ayala’s victory in 285-pound finale powers Norton to Division 3 wrestling championship

A once-imposing 11-point lead for the Norton wrestling team had dwindled to two, and Thursday’s outdoor MIAA Division 3 championship at Triton Regional in Byfield hinged on the outcome of the final match.

The second-seeded Lancers called upon sophomore Danyel Ayala who stepped up to the mat for his 285-pound match with the opportunity to secure the Lancers’ first state championship since 2014.

“As soon as I stepped on the mat, I just felt a wave of confidence,” Ayala said. “You know, it happened earlier this season, and back then I was super nervous and stuff, but as soon as it came here, I knew that I just had to flip a switch and I had to do something great.”

Ayala took a two-point advantage early, but Hayden Delisi tied the match, 2-2, entering the third period.

“To be honest, I got nervous,” Ayala said. “In the middle of a match, I got nervous, 2-2, the second period or something like that. In my head, I’m just thinking, ‘I kind of messed up.’”

In the final period, with the championship on the line, Ayala jumped at an opportunity and secured a 5-2 victory with a three-point fall, spoiling the host’s undefeated season, 35-30.

The South champion Lancers (9-1-1) fell into an early deficit after Finnley Packer (106 pounds) and Lucas Bistany (120) pinned their opponents and Chris Montes (126) won by decision for the Vikings (11-1).

Pins by Steven Chaffee (113), Jason Winston (132), and Nate Tripolone (145) kept Norton’s deficit to three points, and then the visitors went on a run of their own.

Senior captain Nick Andreasen(160) picked up a five-point decision to register a win on his 18th birthday, and Lancer eammate Gabe Thomasson followed with a win by decision in the 170-pound showdown. Ben Khokhlan (182), “the unsung hero” of the day according to North coach Pat Coleman, won his first match of the season with a pin after recovering from a dislocated shoulder.

“We’re confident that we’re a well balanced team,” Coleman said. “We don’t have any superstars, but everybody contributes. And I think our kids did a very good job today all in all.”

The Vikings, one loss away from being mathematically eliminated, won the next match when Hunter Parrott (195) took a three-point decision, questioned by the Norton coaches, as time ran out in the third period. Ashton Wonson (220) followed that up with a pin, pulling the hosts within two and putting Ayala in position to be the hero of the day.

Triton also recorded wins by decision in the 138 and 152 weight classes by Dylan Karpenko, and Alexis Montes, respectively

In an impressive display of skill and toughness the Lancers crushed
D-3 Central Sectional champions Ashland 52-15 to advance to the
D-3 State championships Thursday at Triton Regional HS.

The team wrestled their best of the season winning 9 of 11 matches
wrestled, four by pins. Perhaps the most exciting win of the meet was
Nolan Winfield's hard-fought overtime victory at 126 that set the tone
for the rest of the meet. Jason Winston's pin at 132 with 6 seconds to
go followed by Cal Lyons come-from behind pin at 138 were special
and gave us a good lead. The athleticism of the Tripolones is impressive
as Anthony earned a 10-2 major decision at 145 followed by twin brother
Nathan's pin at 152. Co-captain Nick Andreasen's dominant 7-0 win at
160 clinched the victory with five matches to go! But the Lancers weren't
done and the desire to compete by Gabe Thomasson at 170 who showed everyone in the gym the true meaning of toughness, battling his way to a
16-7 major decision. Co-captain Nate Arduino bumped up to 220, was patient,
kept the score close and eventually got his opportunity, hit his move and
pinned his man. Heavyweight Danyel Ayala took on an opponent 60 lbs
heavier, hung in tough, wore him down and came away with a solid 6-3 win.

Jace Lunn, only a freshman, faced the defending state champ at 120, went right after him, but couldn't match up against his strength and got pinned. No shame.
Ray Rodriguez fought hard as always but ran out of time to win and lost a
5-0 decision. Not getting pinned saved the Lancers 3 team points.

An easy night for both Rocco Tarantino, 106 and Steven Chaffee, 113 who
both collected forfeits important to the team score (6 team points per forfeit).
We forfeited at 182 but plan to have Ben Khokhlan ready for Thursday.

Coach Francis and I are so impressed and pleased by the team's performance
and we have our loyal, loud and proud fans to thank for all their support. And
wasn't that a very special moment before the start of the meet when the
recorded national anthem wouldn't play for an awkward period of time?
I looked at Tricia McGurr and said, "Maybe we'll have to sing" and, what do
you know, she started right up! Peter Wiggins joined in and the next thing you knew, the whole crowd was singing 'The Star-Spangled Banner". It was moving.
A few fans had tears in their eyes. What an electric atmosphere for these
hard-working athletes to compete in!

Go, Lancers

The Lancers started fast and finished strong to upset top seeded,
defending sectional champs Foxboro 41-30 today at FHS. It was another
great team effort by a fearless and well-balanced team!

Rocco Tarantino (106) brought the loud and proud Norton fans to their
feet with a first period pin to get us off to a good start. Steven Chaffee (113)
took a forfeit win and the Lancers were up 12-0. The Warriors came on
strong with a pin over Jace Lunn (120) and a major decision over Nolan
Winfield (126) who refused to get pinned. With the team score 12-10, Jason Winston (132) won by technical fall over a good wrestler and Cal Lyons (138) followed that up with a pin. Nate Tripolone (145) wasted no time scoring a pin to stretch the lead to 29-10. Matt Guiney (152) showed courage wrestling up a
weight class and refused to be pinned by one of Foxboro's best wrestlers.
Anthony Tripolone (160) followed that up with a first period pin and the Lancers were now ahead 35-15. The Warriors were far from done, however, and won three straight, hard-fought decisions over Nick Andreasen (170), Gabe Thomasson (182) and Nate Arduino (195) to narrow the lead to 35-26.
But Ray Rodriguez (220) had fire in his eyes when he stepped onto the mat
and wasted no time clinching the victory for Norton with a 16-second pin!
That allowed us to give Danyel Ayala (285) the day off and forfeit to Foxboro's much bigger heavyweight to make sure that we will have Danyel healthy for
next week's state tournament.

This is Norton's 7th sectional championship in 10 years and the 10th in
Coach Coleman's career (3 at Newton North) tying him for most sectional
championships by a Massachusetts coach! So proud of this program and
this year's team, now Tri-Valley League champions, D-3 South Sectional
champions with a shot at a D-3 State championship next week!
