Class A Wrestling: New coach Kevin Gray aims to keep young Noble in the mix

...Although young, the Knights should be competitive as always in Class A. They were runners-up twice in the past three years, including last winter to rival Marshwood.

Noble’s experience will be in the lower weight classes, led by sophomore Sam Martel at 126 pounds. Martel was a regional champ at 106 last year and a state runner-up.

Junior Duncan McGilvery, who was third at 120 last winter, will move up to 138. Sophomore Jaden Balcewicz gives the Knights a solid wrestler at 113.

Four returning seniors who should have a major impact are John Grenier (152), Joe Pilecki (132), Hil Keisker (160) and Colin Cyr (170).

A fifth senior, Chuck Russell, new to the varsity ranks, could fill in at 152 or 160.

A trio of sophomores are battling for a spot at 145: Matt Beersworth, Logan Rendell and Alex Rachoskie.

Two promising freshmen are Josh Cote (120) and Cody Hussey (106).

Reloading Hawks still top bird in Class A

...It’s a new season, but the defending champion Hawks show no signs of letting down.

Despite losing a solid senior class led by four-time state champion and Maine’s career wins leader Bradley Beaulieu (246-15), the Hawks return a solid nucleus. That core includes six wrestlers who placed in the top three at last winter’s state meet, which Marshwood dominated, more than doubling up runner-up Noble -- 184 points to 80.5.

That group features a pair of returning state champions in the Thompson brothers, James and Matt, as well as juniors Liam Coomey, David Spinney, Dylan Strong and Brandon Sandler.

“We might struggle with our dual meet season,” said Matt Rix, Marshwood’s coach since 1982. “But we should be a decent tournament team.”

Decent might be an understatement.

Led by their cornerstones, Vikings continue to thrive

...“We have a large team this year. We’ve got 31 kids wrestling. That’s a lot,” said Tony Stevens, who is entering his second decade as the Vikings’ coach.

A healthy feeder system, from the youth program up through middle school, sets the foundation. Stevens’ involvement, along with his coaching staff of Nate Danforth, Chris Cobbett, Shawn Dexter and and Jeff Worster, sets the tone and establishes continuity from those lower levels. Team success and a steady stream of individual state champions helps get others interested in the high school program.

The Vikings are coming off another strong season that saw them finish third at KVACs, fourth at regionals and seventh at Class A states. All four of their wrestlers who made the podium at states, seniors Dawson Stevens and Zuka Mabior, junior Jaden David and sophomore J.J. Worster, are back, along with a bushel of seniors and sophomores, and have the Vikings expecting big things this winter.

CM Wrestling preview: A North stacked again

...Six wrestlers who won individual state championships return to defend their titles while providing leadership to their teams this season.

Winslow senior Ryan Fredette goes after his fourth straight state championship. Fredette won more than 50 matches last season in the 182-pound class, with his only loss coming in the championship finals at the New Englands. Fredette’s teammate, Devon Vigue, won state titles as a freshman (113) and a junior (120) and looks to add a third as a senior.

Skowhegan senior Samson Sirois captured his first state title (132 pounds) after finishing second as both a freshman and a junior. Sirois added a fourth-place finish at the New England tournament to his resume.

Bucksport wrestling looks to build on rich tradition

BUCKSPORT - The Bucksport wrestling pipeline runs deep.

“My brother wrestled, my dad wrestled and all my uncles and stuff like that. It’s just something the entire community can have and rally around,” Golden Bucks wrestler Foster Ashmore.

Head coach Dan Ormsby is part of that rich wrestling tradition. The Bucksport alum helped lead the Golden Bucks to a state championship in 2000 and is now molding the future of the program.

PPH Wrestling preview: Opportunities abound for a new wave of champions
With the graduation of five 200-win standouts, the mat is wide open this winter in Maine.

Maine high school wrestling’s Class of 2017 was probably the greatest collection of top-end talent the state has seen.

That graduated group included five wrestlers with over 200 career wins, two New England champions and one New England runner-up.

That means this season – especially in Class A – the mat is wide open for new champions to emerge, some of whom had been eclipsed by the 200-win wrestlers.

“That senior class was so loaded, the best we’ve seen in a long time, probably the best we’ve ever had,” said Erick Jensen, a veteran coach at Mt. Ararat/Brunswick. “It creates a lot of opportunities for these young kids. I just tell them it’s a tremendous opportunity that a lot of kids don’t get to have. It’s a fresh slate, and it comes down to who wants it most, who prepares most.”
