Wrestling brings rivals Lisbon and Oak Hill together

...The schools formed a cooperative program after numbers dwindled in both programs in recent years, as they have throughout Maine high school wrestling.

Five wrestlers from Oak Hill and 10 from Lisbon have joined forces on the mat, with Oak Hill coach Schyler Gagnon and Lisbon’s Ted Albasini teaming up as co-coaches. The team, which hasn’t officially adopted a nickname but generally refers to itself as LisOak, is not only glad to have a full roster with which to compete in duals and big meets, but more ways to prepare for that competition.

“Having people to practice with is big,” Gagnon said. “It’s tough to run a practice with three or four kids.”

“Variety is the spice of life,” Albasini said. “You’ve got to change it up in wrestling.”

Practice variety is important for a number of reasons, including helping wrestlers adapt to different styles they will face over the course of the season. It also breaks up the monotony that settles in after wrestling the same teammate day after day.
