Undefeaed TMHS senior wrestler Chris London is putting together a season that compares with the best in school history.
You've heard of super-dedicated high school hockey and basketball players who never seem to stop playing their favorite sports. They call those guys "rink rats" and "gym rats." Well, meet Chris London, the _Tewksbury High_ wrestling team's "mat rat." London, the TMHS 170-pounder who only stops wrestling long enough to play football in the fall, has so far put together an unblemished, 25-0 record during his senior year, ranking him right up there with some of the top names to have worn the Redmen colors over the last three or four decades. Only Tewksbury High legend Dave Shunamon, the two-time New England champion who was undefeated as both a junior and a senior in the late 1990s, has gone deeper into a season without losing a single match…

They won.

"There was no real reason for it," said Tewksbury coach Peter Molloy of the Hogan/Bridle event swap. "We knew they weren't going to lose even if it was the other way around. It wasn't about strategy, it was just flipping them. We just like to give our kids a chance to…

Tewksbury High senior wrestler Chris London captures first place in the 170-pound division at the prestigious Lowell Holiday Tournament.
What a difference a year has made for Tewksbury High's Chris London. At this time last winter, London was still sidelined with stress fractures in two of his vertebrae, and could not even compete in the prestigious George Bossi Lowell Holiday Wrestling Tournament. London recovered in time to qualify for, and then win, the 160-pound MIAA Division 2 North Sectional championship last February, and since then, the TMHS senior captain has not looked back. London has reeled off 15 straight victories without a loss so far this season, and on Thursday evening he punctuated his incredible start by winning the 170-pound championship at the 44th annual Lowell Holiday Wrestling Tournament at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell.
