The Mount View wrestling team has been busy on the mats in the past week, participating in three separate meets in six days.

The results earned the Mustangs victories against Washington Academy and Piscataquis Community High School of Guilford, and coach Hamilton Richards is pleased with the progress his team has made over the past few seasons. The Mustangs (7-23) have seven victories on the season, as opposed to the two they had last year and the zero from the 2007-08 season.

“The kids are wrestling hard and starting to pick up wins against opponents of similar experience,” said Richards.

In their most recent meet in Farmington Jan. 18, the Mustangs lost 69-6 to Mountain Valley of Rumford, were defeated  Mount Blue of Farmington 72-12 and fell to Mount Ararat of Topsham 48-29.

In their Jan. 16 meet in Howland, the Mustangs defeated Washington Academy of East Machias 48-28, defeated Piscataquis 48-30 and were doubled up by host Penobscot Valley 48-24.
