The Belfast wrestling team competed in a five-team meet Jan. 22 in Skowhegan for its final regular-season match before the conference, regional and state championships are held the next few weeks.

The Lions prevailed in three of their four matches Jan. 22 in Skowhegan, falling only to the host Class A Indians. Belfast defeated Oak Hill of Sabattus 60-12, upended Cony 54-23, prevailed over Old Town 66-24 and fell to the host Indians 57-24.
