Shortt adds to lengthy list of victories


WARWICK — Shane Shortt scored a pair of wins by pin and Westerly split a three-team Division I-South meet on Wednesday at Warwick Vets.

Shortt opened his night by pinning Johnston’s Jesse Ribezzo in the 152-pound match in 3 minutes. He came back later and pinned Warwick’s Owen Amirault in 5:28, also at 152 pounds.

The Bulldogs opened the meet with a 39-21 loss to Johnston (6-5-1, 6-5-1 Division I-South) but came back to defeat Warwick Vets (1-12, 1-12 Division I-South) by a score of 32-20.

Westerly, which hadn’t won a Division I match since beating Woonsocket on Jan. 20, improved to 3-15 overall and 2-10 in Division I-South.

Shortt improved to 31-3 overall this season. The junior has 20 wins by pin and has posted a 15-1 record in league meets. In the 15 dual meet wins, 11 have come by pin fall.

Westerly posted two other victories by pin fall in the loss to Johnston. Jaime Ramirez pinned in 2:52 at 145 pounds and Marco Bonanno ended the 132-pound match with a pin at 1:02.

Ian Rose downed Johnston’s Scott Fang 8-3 in the 120-pound match to account for the other Bulldog scoring against the Panthers.

Shortt’s pin was the only one Westerly had in the win over the Hurricanes.

Westerly’s other points came from a couple of decisions and three forfeit wins.

Dante Turano downed Warwick’s Nick Thompson 8-6 in the 106-pound match. Drew Widdifield (138) earned a 15-0 win over Warwick’s Davin Lourenco.

The Bulldogs are scheduled to have a match at home against Mt. Hope today at 7 p.m. The freshman and JV state meets are this weekend.
