LDS Student Seeks Wrestling Championship (Norton seeks 2nd title) Detroit MI News pgF5 13Jan00 S2 By David Goricki: The Detroit News Former champion at 103 wants to win at 140

ROMEO, MICHIGAN -- An LDS wrestler, state champion at 103 pounds as a sophomore, is now trying to come back as a senior and claim the state title at 140 pounds. Scott Norton lost the state championship title match last year as a junior at 125 pounds, and says that loss is inspiring him to work harder.

Despite an injury in December, Norton is off to a 17-0 start, including 14 pins, "My goal this year is to win state. It's my last chance. Taking second last year makes me want it even more," says Norton.

His coach, Jim Cali of Romeo High School, praised Norton's dedication. "Scott works hard. He's a good leader by example. He's very aggressive. He'll throw the kitchen sink at you. There's not too many people who can go six minutes with him. He'll wear you down."

Norton says that he has been inspired by his brother, Brian, who won a state title three years ago. Now home from an LDS mission in Argentina, Brian "came back and said he wanted to make me be a state champ," according to Scott Norton. "He's been an inspiration to me."
