On Saturday, Nov. 3, Wiscasset Middle High School 2018 graduate Samuel Strozier had his first Division 3 NCAA wrestling match for the University of Southern Maine. In an exhibition match at 184 pounds, at Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts, the USM freshman wrestled sophomore David Wilfredo.

Strozier dominated, beating Wilfredo 10-5. The USM Huskies won the meet 33-7.

This weekend, Strozier will compete in the Roger Williams Invitational in Bristol, Rhode Island. The tournament is considered one of the toughest in the Northeast.

Back at WMHS, Strozier's name now appears on the wrestling 100 wins club banner in Stover Auditorium. Last year's accomplishment was the first in nine years for the school, according to the banner.
