Senior John Sughrue is a three-time Division 1 state champion and is 149-5 for his career. ... Four-time New England Champion Matt Smith of Timberlane has joined the staff as an assistant coach. ... Assistant coach James Sheehan was New England Prep champion for Phillips Exeter. ... John Sughrue and Andrik Cruz were "All-Americans" at the NHSCA championships last spring. ... Senior Mario Wiggins is back after missing last year with an injury. ... Eric Buonagurio, Steve Saba and Andrik Cruz were sectional finalists last year. Cruz was third in the Division 1 state meet.

Coach Bill James (6th year, 93-35): "We lost six seniors last year and will be looking for different wrestlers to fill in six or seven weight classes. The postseason tournaments should be exciting because individually we have wrestlers who are capable of placing at States, All-States and New Englands."
