1. Noble: Last year’s third-place finisher in the Class A meet returns much of its lineup, including Duncan McGilvery (state runner-up at 113), Joe Pilecki, Jake Martel (state champ at 126), Austin Shorey (state runner-up at 120), John Grenier, Casey Rogers and Hil Keisker.

2. Marshwood: Last year’s Class A runner-up to Skowhegan is anchored by three-time state champion Bradley Beaulieu, Kyle Glidden and Matt Caverly.

3. Massabesic: The Mustangs faded to a seventh-place finish last year, far from their usual status as championship contenders, but any team with Leo Amabile and Matthew Carroll can’t be overlooked.

4. Wells: The top Class B team in southern Maine welcomes back seven wrestlers with state meet experience and should challenge defending state champion Foxcroft Academy. Leading the way are Michael Wrigley (160) and Cullen Cummings (126), each a state runner-up.

5. Sanford: The Spartans have Sam Anderson (third in Class A) and boast plenty of depth, with returnees at many weights as well as incoming freshmen from a deep feeder program.
