On Saturday, the Franklin wrestling team added a team title at the Hockomock Championships to the league title that the Panthers had earned during the dual meet season. Franklin had five individuals bring home Hockomock titles and garnered 256 points as a team to hold off rival North Attleboro (225 points) to win the team crown at the meet, which was held at Oliver Ames.

Stoughton finished in third place with 167 points and was the top Davenport team, beating out the host Tigers by 13 points. 
Franklin head coach Carmine Callace noted that the Panthers had 13 of their 14 entrants place. The lone Franklin wrestler not to place was Pat Glynn, but he also picked up two wins by pin to help the team’s overall score. 
“We do have a lot of depth; we do and that really helps,” Collace explained. “Today was a real team effort because we had some tough matches in the semis, but nobody got down on themselves and they all battled back.”
