Eight Hockomock grapplers won state championships on Saturday and three teams finishes in the top 10 in their respective divisions.

Milford came up just 1.5 point shy of the state championship in Division 2 as a team, finishing with 129.5 points which was just shy of Minnechaug’s 131 points. The Scarlet Hawks had three individual champions in Derek Marcolini (113), Mikey Boulanger (138), and Aidan Baum (144).

In Division 1, Taunton earned its two first ever state champions as seniors Ethan Harris (190) and Elijah Prophete (215) earned back-to-back wins within a 10-minute span. That propelled the Tigers to a fourth place finish as a team with 114 points. Haverhill earned the team title with five wrestlers finishing top three for 141 points.

Fresh off a sectional title, Foxboro had two wrestlers reach the finals. While the Warriors didn’t secure an individual champ, they racked up 77.5 points to take fifth in Division 3.

On the girls side, Sharon boasted a pair of individual champions at the MIAA Division 2 meet. Meghan Wiebe (165) and Samantha Rabkin (235) earned state titles to help the Eagles take third overall as a team (56), one point shy of Oliver Ames. Tri-County was first overall with 61 points. Stoughton’s Angie Berry had three wins, including a 3-1 decision in the championship match to win the D2 title at 120.
