Sandwich Wrestling @ Panthers Invitational — January 5, 2020

Sandwich wrestler Connor Coutinho joined his teammates with a seventh-place finish in last weekend’s Panthers Invitational at Whitman-Hanson Regional High School.

Junior Kevin Keegan rolled through every wrestler that stood in his way to be crowned the 138-pound champion in the 16-team Panther Invitational.

He was joined by CJ Aycock, who placed as runner-up in the 182-pound division, in helping the Blue Knights wrestling team to a seventh-place finish January 5 at Whitman-Hanson Regional High School.

Keegan won the title by going 4-0 on the afternoon. He defeated Haverhill’s Jackson DiFloures, 3-2, in the championship match after passing by Andover’s Miles Fraser via medical decision prior to building up a 20-7 lead on the scoreboard. He breezed by Bristol-Plymouth/Coyle-Cassidy’s Christopher Morse and Weymouth’s John Amaral to reach the semifinals.

Aycock nearly went the distance, finishing the day with a 3-1 record and coming up just shy against Xavier’s Korey Holmes in the championship match. He advanced by defeating Barnstable’s Sean Hanson, Weymouth’s Danny Douglas and Andover’s Connor Sheehan.

Senior co-captain Connor Keegan finished third in the 126-pound division while classmate Tanner Davison earned fourth at the 145-pound level. Connor Coutinho also just made another top-five finish for the Blue Knights in the 220-pound weight class.

Sandwich (2-1-1, 0-0 C&I) travels to Hingham Saturday, January 11, to compete in a tri-meet with the Harbormen and Oliver Ames at 10 AM.
