Moreover, this year's club placed three wrestlers | Miguel Guzman, Franchesco Ortiz and Chris DelaRosa | at the New England Tournament.

Senior heavyweight Chris Sharpe is understandably one of the overlooked members of the Greater Lawrence wrestling team.

His 23-6 record is more than respectable, but it doesn't match up with the likes of unbeaten Miguel Guzman (35-0 at 112), Franchesco Ortiz (35-0 at 119) or Chris DelaRosa (34-0 at 152), or even Matt Buco (35-1 at 103), Brian Nadeau (25-4 at 125) or Saul Orellana (32-2 at 135).
