Foxboro High senior Vic Avery claimed the state title in the 189 lbs. weight class at the MIAA All-State Wrestling Championships at Salem High's Veterans Memorial Field House last night.

Every match, but two was decided by pins, but it was Foxborough who ended up with more than the Tigers with a 48-31 win. The loss dropped the Tigers to 7-7 on the season. “That happens when you have seniors and freshmen in the lineup,” said Foxborough head coach Jim Fraser, whose team honored former Warrior standout Jeff Parker, who died at 25 last May before the match. “The seniors going to go out and get the pins for you.” Foxborough improved to 9-5-1 with win over the Tigers. “I knew it was going to be a close match,” said OA head coach Adam Pomella. “We match up pretty well against them.” Pomella was pinning the loss on himself…
