Summit, Caroline Cutter, Jennifer Nutter and Nikki Samuelson placed second in the 200 medley relay (2:06.30) and second in the 400 free relay (4:07.61).

Wrestling

Georgetown 39, Minuteman 18

The Royals (9-4-1) received pins from Derek Chamberlain (220 lbs.), Carsten LaPlante (113 lbs.), Constantine Galanis (145 lbs.), Mike Gallanar (152 lbs.) and Dan Bennett (160 lbs.). Mason Dalley (195 lbs.) won by decision, 8-4. Charlie Koshivas (132 lbs.) won by forfeit.

“Mason Dalley wrestled the match of the night,” Georgetown coach Ryan Archambault said. “Trailing 3-2 at the end of the second period, Mason rallied to score an escape and two takedowns to secure an 8-4 win.”

Triton 52, Saugus 24

The Vikings continue to roll. Now 12-4 on the year, coach Shawn McElligott’s team benefited from contributions from Josh Misiano, Jake Durkin, Cody Nixon, Luke Boyle, Tom Howell, Mark Boyle and Brody Johnson, all of whom won by fall. Lewi L’Heureux won by forfeit while John Boyle won by decision 14-6.

“You are always pleased with a league win,” McElligott said. “This is the first year Saugus is in the Cape Ann League, so it was a good win. I was very pleased with Luke Boyle’s effort. He pinned Saugus captain Seth Roy late in the second period. Seth is a senior who placed in the CAL’s and Sectionals last year, so Luke bumping up was a good win.”
