Duxbury defeats Randolph 53-5
Wednesday, December 12, 2001
Duxbury soundly defeated a less experienced Randolph wrestling team this evening 53-5. The match started with a forfeit at Heavyweight to Duxbury freshman Greg Herrman. Sophomore Adam Johnson made a strong effort at 103 pounds, but was caught in the second round for a fall. From that point on the match was all Duxbury. Jeff Byron (112), Kevin Donoghue (119), Ian McConnaughey (125), and Kyle McCarthy (130) all scored pins. Junior Topher Bell (135) was mistakenly matched against Spencer Lee of Randolph at 140 pounds, but Topher managed to win a major decision (17-4). Scott Klebanoff (140) wrestled up at 145 pounds and won by a fall. At 152 and 160 pounds Duxbury did not take forfeit points, although Randolph did not have wrestlers at these weights. Junior captain Matt Lanuto, wrestling at 171 pounds, won by fall as did Elmo Roberts (189). A tough evening for Randolph was made a bit tougher when a member of the Randolph team gave in to frustration and lost a team point for an instance of unsportsmanlike behavior.

Following the varsity match, Duxbury's Junior Varsity wrestlers showed some of the team's depth; winning four out of the six matches with Randolph Varsity wrestlers by fall. Freshman Eric Sheridan (103) and Sophomores Greg Woods (125), Scott McConnaughey (130) and Nick Petrocelli pinned their opponents.

Duxbury Hosts Scrimmage with Carver, Hanover, Tabor
Saturday, December 1, 2001
Duxbury coaching staff and wrestlers hosted a multi-team scrimmage at Duxbury High School this morning. Warmup exercises were led by Duxbury's four captains: Seniors Josh Caldwell, Kyle McCarthy and Ian McConnaughey and Junior Matt Lanuto. Wrestlers from the four teams broke into groups by weight and drilled takedowns, moves from referees' position and did some live wrestling. This was a good chance for the wrestlers from the four teams to practice drills and get in some live wrestling with members of other area teams without the stress or competition of a dual match or tournament.

Duxbury Head coach Bob Watts and assistants Chris Caldwell and Sal Lanuto are preparing the Dragons for another winning season.
