Kennebunk Rams

Coach: Steve Young

Key returning wrestlers: Cole Hallee (senior, 145); George Doe (senior, 160); Andrew Burns (senior, 170)

Coach’s outlook: “We are very young again this season. The majority of our team is made up of freshman and sophomores. Though I feel that we can have a pretty successful season based on the young group we have. A good chunk of the sophomores started for us last year and saw some success. If they can continue to work and grow from that, things will start turning in their favor in tight matches. I look forward to seeing what they can accomplish on the mat this year.”

Sanford Spartans

Coach: Nate Smith

Key returning wrestlers: Chase Eldridge (170); Adam Thornell (138); Korey Sanborn (285)

Key newcomers: Sam Anderson (160)

Coach’s outlook: “We have one of the strongest teams I’ve ever had as head coach. We have a mix of a lot of rookies in the lineup and a lot of veterans in the lineup and it has been working really well. I think this year, we will be pretty competitive even with some of the top teams. I’m looking to at least be top four in the region and hopefully carry that over to the state (tournament).”
