Garrett Lischke (106 lbs.) registered his first career pin during the tournament.

Marlboro Invitational

The Triton Vikings competed at the Marlboro Invitational over the weekend and placed sixth out of 18 teams. Wrestling for the Vikings were Brody Johnson (106 lbs.; 0-2), Victor Ramirez (120 lbs.; 3-1; 2nd place), Josh Misiano (126 lbs.; 1-2); Cody Nixon (132 lbs.; 4-2; 5th place), Luke Boyle (138 lbs.; 3-1; 2nd place), Jared Stanley (145 lbs.; 1-2), Tom Howell (152 lbs.; 1-2), Mark Boyle (160 lbs.; 5-1; 3rd place), and Dave Manning (220 lbs.; 2-3; 6th place).

“The kids wrestled well this weekend,” said Triton coach Shawn McElligott. “Victor Ramirez wrestled one of his best tournaments of his career, only losing 9-1 to Peter Robinson of St. John’s of Shrewsbury, a returning All-State finalist. Luke Boyle wrestled a great semifinals match to win 10-7 to make the finals, eventually losing 7-2 to Pat O’Connell of Hudson, a multiple state-placer. Mark Boyle had a long and tough day, but was very impressive when after losing a tight semifinal match 6-4 to Dave Rogers of Hudson, he came back to pin Jared O’Brien of Woburn for third place.”
