Rockport — Long bus rides for student-athletes are not always much fun, but when a high school team dominates at its destination, the ride home certainly does not last as long.

The Camden Hills wrestling team found that out when the Windjammers wrangled up six victories in two five-team meets, after the squad went up, and across, the state to compete.

Camden Hills bested Nokomis of Newport 42-36, Morse of Bath 48-36 and host Mount View of Thorndike 52-27 on Monday, Jan. 20, while the Windjammers also picked up victories over host Mount Blue of Farmington 52-24, Nokomis of Newport 48-36 and Piscataquis of Guilford 60-15 on Saturday, Jan 18.
