Rockport — Noah Lang will be remembered in Windjammer wrestling circles as a young man who, day in and day out, came to "work" prepared and ready to improve. In the end, he consistently demonstrated unparalleled determination, perseverance and excellence on the mat.

Lang's final season with the Camden Hills mat program officially ended with tremendous record-setting statistics.

The team's annual banquet was on Thursday, May 9 and Windjammer mat athletes were recognized, including Lang, a senior.

Lang finished as a two-time state Class A individual champion (he is the only one in school history to accomplish that in Class A) and four-time state placer, finished fourth at the New Englands and ended with the most career wins of any Windjammer wrestler at 210 and most career pins at 134.

He also was awarded two national honors. First, he was the Dave Schultz award winner, an honor from the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. The NWHOF selects one high school wrestler from each state based on wrestling, academics and community involvement. Lang was chosen as Maine’s 2019 wrestler.

Lang, who plans to wrestle and study engineering at the University of Maine in Orono, also was selected an alternate All-American by Wrestling Magazine USA and will appear in the next issue of that publication.
