If there are three high school wrestling teams who have a literal stranglehold on the top two prizes the state Class B division has offered the past decade-plus, it has been Camden Hills of Rockport, Mountain Valley of Rumford and Belfast.

And that scenario played out again Saturday at the Augusta Civic Center after dozens of matches as Mountain Valley finished first with 168.5, Camden Hills second at 141 and Belfast third at 105 in the state championship meet.

The Falcons spoiled the Windjammers’ bid to sweep league, regional and state titles for the second straight, just as Belfast had done back-to-back in 2008-09.

How dominate have the three teams been at the state level since 2000? Over the past 10 years, Camden Hills/Camden-Rockport has finished first eight times and second thrice; Mountain Valley, first three times and second six times; and Belfast first twice and second three times.

Neither of the local teams may have come home with the state championship hardware, but plenty of Midcoast individuals did secure titles. All individual state champions in each weight class in Classes A, B and C are invited to participate in the New England championships Friday and Saturday, March 4-5 at the New Haven Athletic Center in New Haven, Conn.

For Camden Hills, Tom Cassidy (130 pounds), Brandon Rich (140) and Jacob Powers (160) pinned down state crowns. Rich and Powers are seniors and Cassidy a junior. Powers also was state champion last year, while Rich and Cassidy finish first in the state for the first time.

Also placing for the Windjammers were Rhett Chase, who was second at 215; Connor Winchenbach, third at 103; Coleman Powers, third at 119; and Jacob Halberg third at 285.

For Belfast, Jordan Young (119), Brent Waterman (125) and Kornealius Wood (171) brought home state championships. Young and Wood are seniors, while Waterman is a sophomore. Waterman also was named the outstanding wrestler for the state Class B meet. Wood and Waterman repeat as state champs, while Young had been runner-up three straight previous seasons.

Also placing for the Lions were Evan Drinkwater, who was second at 103; Justin Philbrook, fourth at 145; and Ethan Fitzjurls, third at 152

For Medomak Valley, Stefan Nicholls placed third at 130,

Mount View also had wrestlers in the competition. Camden Hills, Belfast and Medomak Valley also had other grapplers in the state meet.

The team scores were: Mountain Valley 168.5, Camden Hills 141, Belfast 105, Fryeburg Academy 94, Morse of Bath 71, Oak Hill of Sabattus 54, Hermon 37, Caribou 36, Gardiner 35, Ellsworth 30, Wells 29, Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield 28, Lincoln Academy of Newcastle 20, Sumner 18, York 17, Old Town 16, Medomak Valley 14, Winslow 5, Mount View, Mount Desert Island and others no score.

Since 2000, Camden Hills/Camden-Rockport has won state crowns in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 (shared with Mountain Valley), 2007 and 2010, while being state runners-up in 2006, 2009 and 2011. Mountain Valley won, or shared the state title, in 2005, 2006 and 2011 and was runners-up in 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2008 and 2010. Belfast won state crowns in 2008 and 2009, and was runners-up in 2002, 2005 and 2007.
