“It was a very good start of the season,” said Triton coach Shawn McElligott. “The kids have gone through some adversity the past few weeks, but they really pulled it together today and wrestled well.

“I’m very proud of their effort, especially with the win over Dean Tech; one of the better Divison III schools from out West. I was also very pleased with Clay Bruneau today. Today was the best I have seen him wrestle, especially with his 4-2 win over Will Dario of Wellesley, an athlete who wrestled in the States last year.”
