Highschool wrestling is coming again to Bangor

For the primary time in a very long time, highschool wrestling is coming again to the Larger Bangor space.

Spearheaded by Calais native and longtime wrestling coach Aaron James, a cooperative crew representing Bangor, Brewer, Hampden Academy, Hermon, John Bapst and Orono is on observe to start this winter sports activities season.

There are at the very least 60 varsity wrestling groups represented in Maine, based on James. However a historic lack of native management, compounded by the pandemic, has taken a toll on the game’s presence in Penobscot County.
