Winchenbach pins down 100th career win in MDI meetWindjammers perform well in unique regular-season tourney
Bar Harbor — The Camden Hills wrestling team participated in a unique six-team meet hosted by Mount Desert Island on Saturday, Jan. 12 in Bar Harbor.
The Windjammers, along with Hermon, Fort Kent, Penobscot Valley of Howland, Mattanawcook Academy of Lincoln and the host Trojans competed in the tournament-style meet, which saw Camden Hills junior Connor Winchenbach earn his 100th career victory with a win over Mount Desert Island's Wilder Young.
Windjammer coach Pat Kelly said he thought the tourney would be a dual-meet format with each team facing other squads on the day in dual formats. It turned out to be more of a tournament so, in an effort to get his wrestlers more mat time, the coach mixed and matched many of his athletes in different weight classes.
