Mount View may not have a stable full of wrestlers, but the Mustangs, as always, have been successful with the mat athletes they do have.

That success, however, was a little hard to come by — except for Mark and Zach Ward — on Saturday, Jan. 20 when the Mustangs traveled to Mount Ararat for a five-team meet, which also included Oxford Hills of South Paris, Winslow and Morse of Bath.

Mount View finished 1-3 on the day, as they beat Winslow 36-18, but fell to Oxford Hills 60-7, Mount Ararat 53-23 and Morse 54-18.

Mark Ward had a strong day on the mats, as he compiled numerous points for the Mustangs, in a day that saw the sophomore go undefeated against his foes.

Zach Ward also had an outstanding individual effort, as he finished with one loss.
