For some, the start of the high school wrestling regular season typically is at the Belfast Duals, hosted by the Lions Dec. 10, annually among the top squads in Class B.

In the past, the Belfast Duals included a number of teams battling in dual-matches in separate divisions and then the top individual athletes from each division would advance to the finals to determine the overall team scores and compete for individual positions.

That did not happen this year as all six teams that participated — Medomak Valley, Mount Desert Island, Ellsworth, Camden Hills, Hermon and host Belfast — faced each other once in dual-matches.

The Lions again look to be in the mix of top league, regional and state squads this season and hosted five teams Saturday, among them Camden Hills, also typically a year-to-year contender for the highest accolades in Class B.

The Lions finished 3-2. Belfast defeated Mount Desert Island 66-24, lost to Camden Hills 68-6, lost to Ellsworth 45-42, defeated Hermon 67-18 and beat Medomak Valley 60-30.
