Waldoboro — There is a new all-time career wrestling pin record at Medomak Valley High School and the young man who holds that impressive mark is Cyril Miller.

The Panther senior set the new standard at 68 — and growing — during a meet hosted by MVHS on Saturday, Jan. 18, with Oceanside of Rockland/Thomaston, York, Morse of Bath and Winslow.

Miller surpassed the pin mark of Stephen Genthner, who finished his illustrious Panther career at 66 pins. On Saturday, Miller also tied Genthner's school record career win mark of 118. Genthner set his standards during the 2009-10 season.

As of Jan. 18, Miller was 28-2, with 18 pins, this season.

In Saturday's meet, Medomak Valley defeated Oceanside 41-30, Morse 48-36 and Winslow 36-24 and lost to York 48-36.
