LOWELL, Mass. (February 16, 2018) - Fourteen novice division champions were crowned at last night's championship finals of the New England Tournament of Champions, part of the 72nd annual New England Golden Gloves Championships, last night at historic Lowell Memorial Auditorium.

Western New England captured top honors in team standings with eight individual winners, followed by Central New England (5), Northern New England (1) and Southern New England (0).

East Walpole bantamweight Noelle Boran was named Most Outstanding Boxer.

The action shifts next week, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, respectively, to the semifinals and finals of the New England Tournament of Champions at Lowell Memorial Auditorium. See the complete 2018 schedule of events below as well as last night's complete results.

"It was very difficult to select the Most Outstanding Boxer because there were five who could have won," N. E. Executive Director Bobby Russo said. Noelle won but Nelson Perez, Shane Jordan, Kate Zahr and Jessie Batanda were all in the running. We had some great bouts and surprisingly good talent for the novice division.

"I'm really looking forward to next week's All-New England open division semifinals and championship finals. People should buy tickets in advance, so they don't get caught in long lines and miss some early bouts. We're expecting large crowds both night."

Tickets start at $18.00, only $7.00 for students (ID required) and are available to purchase by calling the Lowell Memorial Auditorium box office at 1.866.722.8881 or ordering online at www.lowellauditorium.com. Buy tickets early to avoid long lines the night of the show..

Proceeds from the Lowell Sun Charities Golden Gloves Championship go towards sending the New England Golden Gloves champions to the National Golden Gloves Championship (starting May 14, 2018 in Omaha, Nebraska), in addition to supporting local athletes and area gyms, the Boys & Girls Club, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, cancer funds, scholarships and many other great charitable causes.
