Springfield Duals

The Rocketeers of NORTH ATTLEBORO suffered their first defeat of the season, despite having a huge day including three victories in the Springfield Central Wrestling Festival.

"It was a good day overall for the team," said North Attleboro coach Wayne Griffin. "As a team, we had a chance to wrestle and improve our skill set as the season progresses."

With the first three matchups being uneventful, North Attleboro focused on getting some necessary experience for its younger wrestlers.

The Rocketeers had four of their wrestlers go undefeated on the day. Nick Gould (145, 3 pins), Collin Fiske (152, 4 pins), Jack Donahue (170, 2 pins), and Brennan Sankey (275, 2 pins) all posted 4-0 records for North Attleboro in the meet.

North Attleboro's captains Mike Gould (2 pins) and Nick Morrison (1 pin) both finished 3-1, and a pair of sophomores - Jake DiRenzo and Brad White - also went 3-1 with three pins in a solid performance.

In the final matchup of the day, North was dealt its first loss of the season by Mount Anthony.

"Competing against New England caliber teams help us to identify our flaws and improve as a squad," said Griffin. "Teams with the caliber and history of Mt Anthony can only help us improve and prepare for the remainder of the season."
North Attleboro (19-1) will host Taunton for a dual meet on Wednesday.
