Cougar Wrestlers Fall Short Against Stark Senior Tyler Coughlin racks up an impressive 11-1 win by decision
behind in the late matches to squeeze out a 41-34 team road win over the Cougars. The evening started out promising for the host Cougars, as they were victorious in three of the first four individual matches. Jared Saunders (CHS, 171) picked up a win in the first match of the evening when he defeated Kyle McHugh with a win by fall with just 22 seconds left in the second period. Next on the mat was Tucker Dalbec (189), who, after being up 6-2, also pinned his opponent—this one coming at 3:05 into the match. In the heavyweight division, the ’Big Mak’ attack gave the Cougars a three-to-one lead in matches as tri-captain senior Dan Mak made short work of Ben O’Donal by pinning him after just 53 ticks of the first period. One of the most exciting and

certainly highest scoring matches of the night featured Lady Cougar Courtney Gannon and John Wilcox in the 103 weight class. An impressive showing by Gannon saw her with leads of 10-6 and 12-11 before she eventually lost by pin with just :56 left in the match. Ben Billings (119), who Cougar head coach Bob Gannon said “wrestled really well,” chalked up another victory for CHS. Leading by a thin 2-1 score after the first period, Billings began to run away with points, opening up a 10-3 lead after two periods on his way to a 15-8 win by decision. The next two Cougar wins came compliments of Connor and Conor. The ’two-n’ Connor Perry (125) built a first-period lead of 6-2 and a second-period lead of 9-3 before having his arm raised with a 10-5 decision. The win was Perry’s 15th on the season. Moments later, the ’one-n’ Conor Douglas (135) took only 1:03 to pin his opponent Greg LoFaro. The victory gave Douglas a team- leading 20 wins on the year (not including forfeit wins). Coach
Alvirne Wrestling Gears Up for Championships
by Sue LaRoche First-year Head Coach Tom Jackson is pleased with the efforts that his young wrestling squad has put in over the season. With only one senior on the team, the juniors and underclassmen have stepped up in a big way to lead the Broncos to a 6-7 record in dual-meet contests. The Alvirne squad also captured first place at the Winnisquam Holiday Tournament.
Alvirne will take part in the Division 2 Championships on February 19 at Merrimack High School. With only two meets remaining between now and then, Coach Jackson feels that “working
hard on our conditioning and technique and staying healthy and focused” will be key to having success in the Championships. The Broncos have been led by senior Cody Anderson (15-7), juniors Tyler Burgess (11-7), Mike Meli (10-8), Sean Melanson (13-3), Josh Metivier (18-10), John Roark (11-9), Taylur Herbert (3-3), and Steve Litchenberg (7-11). Underclassmen Evan Bowen, Kraig Hoag, Pat Morse, Mike Phillips, Tyler Rhine, Matt Richardson, and Brenden Smith have also had key victories to help the team during the season.
Gannon has been very impressed with the season-long progress of both Perry and Douglas: “They practice hard, they work hard.” Gannon was also enthusiastic in pointing out the recent second- and third-place finishes by Douglas and Perry, respectively, in the recent Franklin Tournament that featured some 12 area teams. After losing three consecutive matches late in the meet, the final

bright spot on the evening for the Cougars was senior Tyler Coughlin. The first-year wrestler, who Bob Gannon says “ is strong as nails and has a heart of gold,” cashed in with an impressive 11-1 win by decision over John Stark’s Alex Lavalliere in the 160 weight class. With continued praise for his senior, Gannon added, “He’s a good kid, great teammate, good leader.”
