MJHS wrestlers take state championship

We love to report on local sports here on WelcomeToLincolnMaine.com, and it's our pleasure to feature an article written by a proud parent about the MJHS wrestling team. Congratulations Little Lynx on your state championship as a team, and your individual accomplishments as well. We wish you all success in the future!

By Sarah Sutherland

Seven years ago, my husband Josh decided he wanted to change wrestling in Lincoln. When he was in high school he always wished he had a team like Howland that would dominate and win state championships. Seven years ago he decided he would do everything in his power to make a team like that for his son to be on. Not focusing on being an individual winner, because Lincoln has had several of those, but a winning team.

It is kind of ironic that today the coach of that winning Howland team was inducted into the New England Wrestling Hall of Fame (Gerald Hutchinson - congrats to him!), the same day that Lincoln won their first ever state championship for wrestling.

So seven summers ago we had the first ever Little Lynx Wrestling Club sign up. That summer program rolled over into a winter program that continued to grow through the Rec. Eventually the club turned private for a number of reasons, and the intensity has only increased since then. All winter, every winter, we have put thousands and thousands of miles on our vehicles, logged hundreds of driving and bleachers hours (lots of white knuckle driving hours in the dead of winter), the kids have had blood sweat and tears weekend in and weekend out (and during the week at practice too). Parents and wrestlers alike have devoted themselves to this sport to make today a possibility.

We are the northernmost traveling team, adding several hours more onto each trip than our competitors. This just makes what we do even more of a commitment and makes the kids even tougher! I really can't even explain the feeling I have had all evening.

I'm proud of my son Jackson for his part in all of this. He is the first individual state champion for MJHS. He has also been a leader for so many years during the Little Lynx program. I am proud of my husband for his part in all of this. He has had a vision and has been chasing it for years. He has had practices in the living room and in the basement with any kid who wants to put a little extra time in. He has spent thousands of hours reviewing videos, brackets, and technique online. He has always put travel requirements out for the Little Lynx team with today in mind, trying to get tougher competition for the kids to make them rise up to the level of other teams in New England.

I am thankful for coach Bob and his commitment to wrestling in Lincoln. It's funny that Josh's MJHS coach is also Jackson's. Coach Bob has been there since we started the Little Lynx program and has been there every step of the way. I am glad to have Matt and all of his wrestling knowledge on board with the Lincoln program. Hopefully this success will start to trickle into the high school program soon! I am thankful for all the parents who have trusted Josh to teach their kids and whose kids are the future of wrestling in Lincoln. I am proud of all the wrestlers on the MJHS team. Without them, today wouldn't have been a success.

Seeing four Little Lynx wrestlers in the finals was the icing on the cake for the day. I am proud of Deegan, Isaac and Alex for their devotion and no quit attitude. These kids are the youngest ones on the team and are making big waves. This probably seems a little over the top for a junior high team win but I hope it is the first of many for this team. Lincoln is definitely not known for their wrestling teams, but the future is bright and we hope to change things! Proud really is an understatement.
Thanks to all those who have supported this cause over the years, all those who came out this evening to welcome these state champs back into town with their fire/police/ambulance escort, and to Bill, Elvia and Gina for making ice cream sundaes for kids when they got back to the school. They were all on cloud nine!!! What a day!

MA sports trophies find new home

July 17 - Thanks to the efforts of several area sports history enthusiasts, many of the trophies that had been removed from the display cases at Mattanawcook Academy in 2012 have now found a new home.

Last winter, our sports photographer (and Lincoln Historical Society member), Lee Rand, noticed that many of the sports trophies and awards were no longer on display in the lobby at the high school. After discussing this with Principal Hentry Pietras, Lee contacted Dottie Harding of the LHS, and they, along with George King, went up to the high school to see the items that were put in storage. Mr. Pietras was very cooperative and supported the efforts of the LHS in finding a place that the items could be displayed to the public.

The LHS had just built a new building in School House Park on West Broadway called the School Room, and it was decided that the trophies and plaques, etc., could be displayed there. They are now on display (some pictured here) and we encourage all you history buffs, especially sports history buffs), to visit the School Room.

And while you're at it, take advantage of the opportunity to visit Lincoln's Little Red Schoolhouse, also located in the park, and the museum across the street from the park on West Broadway.

For those of you willing to share some of your time and expertise to help keep Lincoln's history alive, contact President Dottie Harding on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/73797767153/?fref=ts. Volunteers are much needed right now!
