The Third Crow

I’ve felt stuck in a loop of fantasy novels and stories lately, with so many arcs and reviews, guest aricles, and more, that i think it is a time for a pause. It is a humbling and exciting position to be able to hold books before they hit the shelves and/or amazon, but it feels […]

One of the most interesting aspects of the discussion was how crucial trust is for driving transformation and change. We tend to think of trust as static, but Accenture’s research, as well as that of the participants, made it clear that trust is especially important when you need to drive an organization to do something […]

WAKEFIELD – When Zabion Powell walked out of his house for a run at 5 a.m. Thursday, the air was bitter cold, his lungs ached with every icy breath. But Powell was focused on one thing, and one goal alone – becoming a champion. After months of following the same grueling routine, he can proudly call himself one. The senior pinned Melrose wrestling star Stephen MacDonald in the 145-pound match Saturday, helping Taconic capture its first-ever Div. 3 wrestling title at Wakefield High School. “It’s crazy, because you can’t really describe it,” Powell said afterward. “You’re just in the moment. It’s just so much excitement, so much adrenaline. You see pictures of people, they win a state championship, they get up there and they’re like: ‘Wooo!’ They’re screaming like crazy. Then you actually feel it, and you actually do it, you’re like: ‘Whoa…that’s awesome.’ It’s awesome.” For the first time, an MIAA wrestling title will be making its way to Berkshire County. In addition to Powell’s individual title, juniors Dylan Burke (182 pounds) and Shawn O’Shea (195) reached the finals, helping Taconic compile 113 team points, two more than second place Dedham. “It came down to a three-team race at the end,” Braves Coach Jeremy Tetreault said. “It was between Taconic, Dedham and Foxboro. It came down to where after we pinned at the 145 (pound) match, we needed the 220. It didn’t matter what we did at 182, or at 195 in the finals there, we were ahead by so many points. We needed Dedham to win at 220 without a pin, and then we won the championship. If that didn’t happen, we would’ve tied, and would have been co-champs.” Foxboro surged to a third-place finish on the collective backs of Shayne Kerrigan and Tommy Gallagher, who won consecutive finals at 132 pounds and at 138. Gallagher’s victory took an all-out effort, as he went on to defeat Tyngsboro junior Josh Ducharme, 2-0 in a sudden death round. Holliston’s Brian Garry was named Most Outstanding Wrestler for his efforts at 126 pounds, winning the most dramatic match of the day with a last-second takedown of Middleboro’s Jaden Estrada. Wayland junior Cameron Jones finished with the most falls at the conclusion of the tournament, as he racked up five total in the 170 pound class. Some may complain about having to make a long commute. But for Taconic, the 148-mile trek back west on the Pike is one they will cherish for the rest of their lives. “We knew coming in that it was tight,” Tetreault said. “There was a lot of parity throughout Div. 3 like this. We brought five kids back, and I didn’t know if that was enough. But it was, and we are happy with it.” Div. 3 Wrestling At Wakefield High School 106 – Tyler Knox (Pentucket) def.
