WH Wrestling Wins League Opener

The Whitman-Hanson wrestling team traveled to Duxbury wednesday night to start its 2013/2014 duel meet season off with a league match up.  The young Panther squad started 4 freshman in the line up that spans 14 weight classes. W-H fell behind early in the lower weight classes 18-3 while recording one key win out of the first four matches. That win came from junior Cory Reid in a hard fought 5-0 decision. Starting at the 132 lb. weight class W-H got things going in the right direction with two quick pins coming from Tysun Plouse and Luke Rogers at 138 lbs. As W-H climbed back into the lead they recorded wins from captain Zach Perkins who moved up a weight class and wrestled at 170 lbs., got a pin from Garrett McSweeney at 182 lbs. and another pin from Cole Bertholette at 195 lbs. The night ended up in the Panthers favor as they pulled off a solid 42-36 victory over the Green Dragons. Whitman-Hanson heads to Marshfield this saturday to face Marshfield, Weymouth, Stoughton and Chelmsford.
