A regular season to remember

(Continued)

While Triton’s state championship run came to a halt in the semifinals round against Norton, losing 51-19, it capped off an unforeseen year of success and program progression.

“It was a great run,” McElligott said. “Nobody would have predicted that we would be in the state semifinals except the kids. I said it many times: They are a very close group that feed off each other and believed in each other. I am very happy how we ended our regular season with a 21-6 record and fourth place in Division III.”

All that remains on the 2014 campaign is the Sectionals Tournament, which will take place this weekend at Danvers High School.

When it is all said and done, Triton’s seniors will be bid adieu. The mats will be rolled and stowed and the sights will set to what awaits — likely a program wealthy in athletes, new records to be broken and a new practice room.
