That was a pretty successful day considering in the past they have usually finished last due to an inability to compete at all weight classes. At this weekends NEC Tournament "Black & Blue" still forfeited 24 points in each match due to a lack of wrestlers because of no one in the class or injury. However they wrestled hard and came in fourth out of seven teams. They lost to the third place team Danvers/Hamilton Wenham 42-36 including 24 points to the winner due to forfeits. Captains Jake Powell (pre-season Masswrestling ranked #2 in Div 3) who had a major decision against Beverly and a pin against Danvers showing his Wrestling knowledge with a variety moves, and Jeff Sherman put in their usual strong performances. Also, not a surprise was Sean Taylor, a 255-pound junior heavyweight from Marblehead, who is also pre-season ranked by MassWrestling at #2 in the state Div 3 Heavyweight class, pinned Beverly's 282-pound "Heavy" in under a minute. He followed that with a 21 second pin of Danvers/H-W's "Heavy" becoming the lead point winner for the team with 12 points. The "Black & Blue" look to do well this season once they get thier injured wrestlers back and fill thier empty classes. Practices are at SHS gym M-F 5-7 when Meets aren't scheduled. Come on down! Join the team!
