PITTSFIELD– The Maine Central Institute Huskies wrestling team may not have the numbers to compete for any team accolades, but the individual wrestlers that are on the squad have a chance to compete with anyone by the end of the season.
“We have a history of small teams and while we may not compete for any team accolades,”MCI coach Michael Libby said. “I feel we have some kids that can compete at the end of the season.”
The Huskies have only six on their roster, that includes three first year wrestlers. Dylan Dahlbergh, Seth Wilcox, and Chris Watrous will be the veterans for Libby.
Wilcox is a senior at 285, had his first winning season last year and was a state alternate. Watrous returns at 120.
Senior Hai Ha at 220, junior Hunter Sprague at 170, and freshman Zyanthony Moss at 106 are the newbies on the Huskies roster.
Dahlbergh at 132 is a three time state runner up.
“Dylan (Dahlbergh) is a bulldog on the mat and I hope to see that attitude from all my wrestlers this year,”Libby said. “The few bodies I have could surprise some people.”
The Huskies will open the regular season with a home meet against Brewer, Hampden, Nokomis, and Oceanside.
