Lang experiences strong showing at regional wrestling championship
PROVIDENCE, RI — Camden Hills wrestler Noah Lang competed at the New England wrestling high school championships Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3 in Providence, Rhode Island.
As the Maine state champion in the 145 pound division, Lang earned himself a bye in the first round of the regional meet.
In the second round, he defeated Dylan Musgrave from Timberlane (New Hampshire), who was the second seed in New Hampshire and one of two wrestlers who defeated Lang this season.
In the third round, Lang fell to top-seeded Cole McGill of Ponaganset (Rhode Island). McGill would go on to take first place in the 145 pound division.
In the fourth round, Lang pinned Nick Tejada of Haverill (Massachusetts), who finished third in the Massachusetts state tournament.
In the fifth round, Lang fell to Brevin Cassella of Nashoba (Massahucsetts).
Although Lang did not place in this meet, he still had an impressive showing for a junior.
“The competition is very high and all the matches move at a faster tempo than most Maine wrestlers are used to,” said Glenn Lang. “It was awesome getting the win back against Timberlane's Musgrave.”
