Wrestling takes center ring - By Michelle Libby

Windham High School wrestling finished up its regular season at home on Saturday with a tri-meet against Kennebunk and Westbrook. There were a lot of empty weight classes, but the athletes were excited to get on the mat. Senior captains Eric Cash (5-2) and Sam Frank (22-5) said that the team works well together. 

“There were a lot of growing pains with what the kids are used to with the old coach,” said first year coach Jason Dryburgh. “The bonding experience has been good. The kids are great.” 

Some of the standout competitors for this year have been Jesse Malier, Brandon Huntington and Dominick Cancelarich. 

“Dominick has come into his own. He is the glue that binds the team together. He’ll make a fantastic senior wrestler,” said Dryburgh. “The chemistry will be there next year.”

The final meets for this season are the regionals at Mt. Ararat High School in Topsham. The top four in each weight class will advance to the state meet at Noble High School at the end of the month.
