BUCKSPORT — The Mount Desert Island High School wrestling team competed at the Penobscot Valley Conference (PVC) wrestling tournament on Jan. 26.

Sargent lost his other two matches to wrestlers Matthew Stewart and Jarrod Black from Bucksport High School and Foxcroft Academy.

Elijah Malloy won one of three matches in the 132-pound class against Rowan Stamp from Fort Kent Community High School. He lost to Devon Gudroe from Dexter High School and Gaige Pleninger from Foxcroft Academy.

Wilder Young won two out of four matches in the 138-pound weight class. He beat Joseph Mann of Bucksport High School and Ethan Cooley from Piscataquis Community High School. He lost to Forrest Law from Foxcroft Academy and Wyatt Tash from Mattanawcook Academy.
