Camden Hills participated in a preseason meet at Oxford Hills Saturday, Dec. 2 and placed third in the team duals tournament behind Oxford Hills and Massabesic. 

“At Oxford Hills, Nikita Perevalov was voted ‘wrestler’ of the meet,” said Camden Hills coach Patrick Kelly about the designation awarded by Windjammer coaches each week. "His physical presence, cat-like speed and dominance on the mat made him an easy choice.”

During the first preseason week, Eric Andrews was voted wrestler of the meet.
