South Paris — The regular season has concluded for the Medomak Valley wrestling team and the Panthers can turn their eyes — and full attention — to the postseason.

The Panthers traveled to Oxford Hills on Wednesday, Jan. 30, for their final high school regular-season dual-match, as the visitors fell to the home-standing Vikings 54-26 in a makeup meet.

Gardiner also was scheduled to participate, but opted not to compete.

The Panthers finished the regular season with a 26-9 dual-match record, along with a bundle of strong in-season tournament finishes. Medomak Valley appears to have the talent and depth to challenge for league, regional and state titles.
