Rockland — The Oceanside wrestling team hit the road for two recent mat battles, including a quad-meet Dec. 22 in Thorndike with host Mount View, Belfast and Nokomis of Newport, as well as a tri-meet Dec. 19 with host Gardiner and visiting Oxford Hills of South Paris.

Both meets saw the Mariners, a first-year team, forced to forfeit a multitude of matches against opponents, which hampered Oceanside's team success. However, individuals again performed well for Oceanside.
