BELFAST — Nothing like an early-season, mid-week, multi-team high school wrestling meet to unpack the holiday athletic spirit as five squads — one from Aroostook County, 220 miles and four-hour trip away, and others, essentially, by comparison, neighbors — converged on the mats.

The Belfast Lions hosted the Medomak Valley Panthers of Waldoboro, Oceanside Mariners of Rockland, Bucksport Golden Bucks and Fort Kent Warriors on Wednesday afternoon and early evening, Dec. 21.
