Boyle at 100

Triton junior gunning for school record in wins

(Continued)

Boyle has increased his strength and stamina each of the last two offseasons. Two summers ago, he trained at Jimmy Pedro’s Club in Wakefield. Last summer, he trained at BrickHouse Wrestling and Fitness in Lowell.

“There’s a big difference in my physique and size,” Boyle said. “Obviously, I’m getting bigger each year. I never experienced winning so much at the youth level. I’m not going to say I lost all the time, but I wasn’t winning as much as I am now. All of those losses helped me. I learned from my mistakes.”

Triton coach Shawn McElligott believes Mark is hitting his stride just in time for the Division 3 and All-State meets, and potentially New Englands.

“He is peaking at the right time,” McElligott said of Mark.

Triton placed fifth as a team. Luke Boyle also earned a sectional title at 138 pounds. Cody Nixon placed second at 132 pounds. Victor Ramirez (120 lbs.) and John Boyle (126 lbs.) placed third.

Pentucket had the surprising performance of the day by placing third as a team. The Sachems were paced by champions Josh Wesolowski (132), a rising sophomore, and junior stalwart Sean Clohisy (195). Senior star Tom Funk settled for second at 120 and Mike McCarron was second at 170.

For Georgetown, Derek Chamberlin was runner-up at 195.
