WILLIAMSTOWN -- The Eagles won more contested matches, but the Mount Greylock wrestling team was able to get pinfall victories from Mitch Graves (152 pounds) and Noah Howard (285) to win their first county dual of the season, 45-30 over Mount Everett.
"We performed a little better technique-wise," Mounties coach Ray Miro said. "We still have a lot of work to do in terms of that, but it’s still early in the season."
Greylock -- missing three of its usual wrestlers Thursday night -- is now 4-0, 1-0 in the county.

Greylock girls’ basketball
NORTH ADAMS -- Lenox’s zone press proved to be too much for an inexperienced Mount Greylock girls’ basketball team as Lenox cruised by the Mounties 59-40 in the early game of the Gene Wein Tournament on Thursday.
Lenox’s experience also gave the Mounties problems as the Millionaires spread the ball around all night. Jaclyn Gigliotti and Hayden Zinchuk both hit double digits for Lenox, and Zinchuk put up a game-high 21 points.
The Millionaires played a heavy-pressure defense the entire night to keep the ball out of Lucy Barrett’s hands. She finished the game with just seven points. Freshman Arianna Walden had 16 points for the Mounties in the loss.
MCLA men’s basketball
NORTH ADAMS -- The Trailblazers placed three players in double figures, led by Kenny Suggs’ team-high 18 points, as they defeated the Southern Vermont Mountaineers 86-63 on Thursday evening to wrap up the fall semester with a 3-6 overall mark.
SVC scored the opening seven points as Taeshon Johnson had five quick points. MCLA responded as Ramon Viches canned back-to-back 3-pointers to get the Trailblazers back in the game. The Mountaineers then extended back out to an eight-point lead on two occasions before MCLA put the clamps on defensively.
With SVC holding a 23-16 lead with 12:03 left in the opening half, MCLA limited it to just seven points the rest of the half. MCLA used a 12-0 run to turn a 25-20 deficit into a 32-25 advantage and led 38-28 at the break.
MCLA scored the first seven points of the second half to grab a double-digit lead at 45-30 and never looked back. SVC never got within single digits in the closing period.
Suggs was a monster off the bench, collecting his 18 points on 8-of-9 shooting. He completed the double-double with 10 rebounds. Joining him in double figures were Viches, who had a season-high 14, while Jones added 11. Bilal Shabazz had a good floor game with six assists and four steals.
