Conor Douglas (145) (red & black) is locked up with Joe Pellitteri of Milford, however the Cougar sophomore needed only 33 seconds of the match to pin his opponent
by Marc Ayotte The Campbell wrestling team got off to a busy first week of action, opening up the season with a quad meet against Souhegan and Sanborn at host Windham. Three days later, on Saturday, December 10, the Cougars battled Milford in a dual meet, as they hosted the Spartans in their home opener. In the season opener, Campbell defeated Souhegan (46-27) and Sanborn (18-12) in non-divisional matches. In the match against Souhegan, the Cougars received wins from 8 wrestlers; Jack Tremblay, Kian Fuertes, Ben Billings, Connar Quigley, Connor Perry, Conor Douglas, Craig Schultz and Jared Saunders. However, in their lone intra-division match of the evening, a very deep and strong Jaguar squad spoiled the Cougar team’s hopes of a road sweep on opening night. Despite wins by Douglas, Billings, Saunders and Ricky Baril, the Cougars were unable to hold off a very talented Windham team, going down in team competition by the score of 57-24. On the evening, multiple match winners included Jared Saunders (3) along with Billings, Douglas and Connar Quigley with two apiece. Coach Bob Gannon reflected on the Cougar’s first regular season meet; “(we) had some strong matches from the returning wrestlers as well as freshmen Jack Tremblay and Connar Quigley.” In a separately held exhibition match, Campbell sophomore Jeff Avitabile had a very strong showing. The first year wrestler scored a takedown with just 16 seconds remaining in the match, as he defeated Graham Smith of WHS by a score of 7-5. Things did not get any easier for Campbell when the faced a very strong Milford team in the Cougar Den. Still licking their wounds

Entrenched in paperwork all day, Bonney sent out kudos to Pelham head coach Bob Riddinger; “he was a huge help to me” adding that Londonderry’s Coach Jimmy Marron was also helpful. With another Bronco Invitational in the books, Bonney summed up the event; “I’m pleased – giving the kids an opportunity to compete is what it’s about.” In the overall team competition, the Londonderry Lancers (202.5) used seven individual first place finishes to run away with the victory. Timberlane finished a distant second with 118.5 points, while Exeter was right on Timberlane’s heels with 114.0 points. Host Alvirne finished in fourth with a team total of 85.5, followed by West (81.0), Pelham (77.0) and Keene (16.5).

Silence of the Rams continued from page 16
“when it does happen, it is fun to watch” adding specifically; “tonight, they just exploded in the first quarter.” The Rams were led by senior guard Danelle Sullivan who tossed in 19 points, with fellow guard Bobbi Olivier contributing10 points. Earlier in the evening, the Cougar JV’s suffered a dry spell in surrendering a fourth quarter lead. The visiting Rams went on a 12-0 run to vault into the lead. With the Cougars trailing 37-29 with 1:24 remaining in the game, Kali Trunka brought her team back to within two points, compliments of back to back triples. Trailing 38- 35, Campbell’s Carly Mosnicka was fouled on her 3-point attempt with just 2.2 seconds left. Mosnicka returned from the time out to valiantly nail her first two attempts from the charity stripe, but the third free throw was unsuccessful, as the Rams escaped with a 38-37 road win. Leading scorers for Campbell were Trunka with 13, Rebecca Landreau with 12 and Carly Mosnicka with eight. In his first year at the helm, Cougar’s Bobby Allan has been pleased with his team’s early season effort; “as a new coach you cannot ask for anything but the hard work they show day in and day out.” Boys Defensive Effort Leads to Win While the Lady Cougars were back in Litchfield enjoying their offensive explosion, the boys’ varsity squad traveled to Raymond for what turned out to be a tough defensive battle in its season opener. According to Coach Roye, it was the Campbell defense which held the high scoring Rams to only 14 first half points, while forcing numerous turnovers that served as the impetus to the Cougar’s hard fought 53-42 victory over the pre-season top five ranked Raymond team.
Trailing early in the second quarter, Campbell gained control of the lead and never looked back. Junior Jacob Morgan and Senior Mike Vigeant combined to play tough defense on Raymond’s leading scorer, All-State Joe Morin, by keeping him in check with 16 points. Aiding in the shutdown of the potent Ram offense was Campbell’s ability to limit second chance points. Roye cited the rebounding strengths of recent transfer Caleb McKearin (13 rebounds) along with sophomore Jesiah Wade (eight rebounds) as key elements in the Cougar’s domination of the defensive boards. Offensively, CHS used a well-balanced attack, featuring three scorers in double figures. Jesiah Wade led Campbell with 15 points while Jacob Morgan contributed 14. Caleb McKearin recorded his first double/double in a Cougar uniform when he chipped in with 11 points. The JV boys’ basketball team won their season opener at Raymond on Friday night with an impressive 56-35 victory. Trevor Duquette, Cam Viola and Connor Sahlin led the way offensively for Campbell as each player recorded double digit entries into the scoring column. The boys return to action this Friday when they host Mascenic at 5:30. The boys return to action this Friday
when they host the Mascenic Vikings in the home opener. The varsity game tip-off is at 7 p.m. in the Cougar Den, with the JV game scheduled for a 5:30 start.

Cougar Wrestlers Take to the Mats
from the Jaguar matches, the Cougars with only two victories, could not overcome the talented Spartan’s army of wrestlers, falling by the score of 58-9. Shining for Campbell were sophomores Ben Billings and Conor Douglas, as each of them picked up victory number three on the season. Billings (126) fell behind 2-0 early in his match but rebounded to take a 5-2 lead in the second period. With Billings seemingly ‘hanging’ on to the lead, Coach Gannon tried to revitalize his wrestler; “you gotta wrestle, you’re just holding on” was the advice that came in from the side. Although he received a subsequent one-point penalty for stalling, Billings used all the time allotted on the clock to ultimately defeat his opponent (Thomas Scannell) by a score of 10-5. Meanwhile, Douglas, wrestling in the 145-weight class, traveled a different and more direct road to victory. Douglas used up just 22 seconds to take a 2-0 lead and then eleven ticks later, he ended his match with a win by fall over Joe Pellitteri.
Despite the lopsided score in the team competition, Bob Gannon said his team “wrestled well and showed great improvement and heart from its new wrestlers, especially Jack Tremblay, Connar Quigley and Keegan Tanguay.” In the 106 classification, Tremblay battled J.T. Bellantoni in the day’s highest scoring match. Within two points at 13-11 after two periods, Tremblay was outscored 6-0 in the final period, ultimately losing by a major decision. In another exciting match, Keegan Tanguay took a third period, 5-3 lead against his opponent Caleb Wright in their 138-weight class match. A strong final period by the Spartan allowed him to tie the score at five and eventually win the match by fall, with 56 seconds remaining.
