Windjammers split with four foes in regular-season finaleCamden Hills eyes fifth straight defense of league championship
Bar Harbor — The defending state Class B champion Camden Hills wrestling team competed in its final regular-season matches on Saturday, Jan. 25 along with Ellsworth, Foxcroft Academy of Dover-Foxcroft, Piscataquis of Guilford and the host Mount Desert Island Trojans.
The Windjammers, which finished 27-5 in dual-meets this season, went 2-2 on the day, falling 39-32 to the Eagles, lost 34-32 to the Ponies, bested the Trojans 76-6 and defeated the Pirates 78-5.
This season, the four-time defending Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference champion Windjammers lost to Ellsworth twice and Foxcroft Academy of Dover-Foxcroft, Noble of Berwick and Skowhegan all once in dual-meets.
"A solid year for a relatively young and inexperienced squad," said Camden Hills coach Patrick Kelly. "I am pleased with the team's 'give-it-everything' mentality when on the mat."
