Windham Middle School wrestling victorious by Matt Pascarella

Ashton Sawyer works to get the win
The Windham Middle School wrestling team took on Kennebunk and Sanford for the last home game and last game of the season on Tuesday, March 27. The match took place at Windham Middle School.

Early on, Windham was off to a powerful start with Scott Ingalls winning a match against Sanford and Jason Hart winning a match against Kennebunk.

Griffin Moreau working to pin his opponent
In his match against Sanford, Griffin Moreau had high intensity right out of the gate. He was working hard to pin his opponent and he succeeded.

If a Windham athlete lost or struggled in a match, they did not let it get them down. Their struggle only made them come out with more ferocity the next time.

After giving strong effort, Ashton Sawyer pinned his Kennebunk opponent.

Jack Elston not giving up, going for the win
Owen McDuffie also pinned his Kennebunk opponent. 

When Windham athletes were paired with opponents, no matter the outcome, one thing shown through each and every athlete was the determination. Windham athletes always give 110 percent.  

This was apparent when Jack Elston battled it out against his Kennebunk opponent for several rounds and then multiple overtime rounds. His tenacity was evident and he was truly giving it his all. In the end, he lost by only one point. 

At the end of the meet, Windham was victorious over Sanford, 27-9, but lost to Kennebunk 52-21.
Coach Nick Buckley commented on how the team did during this meet and overall during their season.“The team wrestled hard today; they gave it everything they had, showed a lot of spirit and never gave up. I thought they met their goal of the season to everyday get better and better and better. I’m super proud of this group of kids; they’re fine young people and becoming [stronger] wrestlers.”

Congratulations to the team on a great season!
