WH Wrestling Competes in Duxbury Tournament

The Whitman-Hanson Wrestling team travelled to Duxbury this Saturday to compete in a rare team tournament with 7 other squads.The Panthers drew a tough Methuen team in the first round, much of the match saw things stay close with the score being 24-18 after 8 of the 14 matches. Methuen's upper weight classes proved difficult to beat as they eventually pulled out a 51-21 victory.

The Black and Red moved on to face local rival Hanover in thier second match where W-H fell behind early before Junior Tyson Plouse (132 lbs.) turned things around, pinning his opponent in an exciting back and forth match. W-H came back to post a 48-27 victory when it was all said and done.

The final matchup of the day was Masconomet for W-H. This too was a close match for most of the meet, before Masco pulled away 45-27 at the end with some solid performances from thier lighter weight categories.
