Wiscasset Middle High School senior Sam Strozier said Sunday, he was feeling good about his top 12 finish at the New England High School Wrestling Championships March 2 and 3 in Providence, Rhode Island. “I’m pretty sore,” just about everywhere, he added in the phone interview before the family’s next sporting event of the weekend, his sister Anna’s cheerleading competition.

Shelley Strozier reported her son’s wrestling results on her Facebook page Saturday night to wide congratulations.

WMHS’s lone wrestler competed on a Morse-Wiscasset team this season. He went 2-2 in the 182-pound division of the New Englands, with a win and loss each day including a triple overtime win Friday night. Day two marked his last day wrestling for Wiscasset and wearing the Morse Shipbuilders’ blue and white, his mother notes in the post.

She writes, one word sums up her feelings: Pride. “With your drive and determination, Samuel Strozier you’re sure to go far in life.”

Her son said Sunday, his favorite part of the experience was Friday’s win, because it got him through to the next day of the event. He hopes to keep wrestling in college, possibly at the University of Southern Maine, he said.
