On Feb. 10, the Morse/Wiscasset wrestling team traveled with nine competitors to Oxford Hills High School to compete in the class A North regionals. The Shipbuilders were able to move seven of their nine wrestlers on to this Saturday’s States meet at Sanford High School. Sam Strozier, co-captain and the lone Wiscasset wrestler, took second place at 182 pounds.

Co-captain Isaiah Cogswell took second place at 152. Mason Savary took third at 138. Ihsan Myers took third place at 195. Connor McNish took fourth at 120 and Ben Brewer also took fourth place at 132. Jayce Martin  took fourth at 220. The Shipbuilders finished sixth at regionals. Nokomis won Class A North regionals for the first time. The region is loaded with tough teams and wrestlers. Now it's time to go back and work hard for next week, said Coach Mike Bennett.

There were many great matches wrestled, but Martin's match to make it into the consolation finals stole the show. The eighth-seeded Martin, a rookie wrestler, shocked the crowd when he threw the number two seed in a move called the head and arm. Martin got the pin, making it into the third and fourth place round and guaranteeing him a spot at States.
