Wells High School has honored junior Michael Wrigley with the school’s Student-Athlete of the Month Award for December 2016. Wrigley received this award for his academics, sportsmanship, and performance on the WHS Wrestling Team during the team’s most recent season.
Presenting a plaque to Wrigley on February 10th was John C. Kreie of Cole Harrison Insurance Agency, Pamela Moody-Maxon of Moody Maxon Real Estate and coach of the wrestling team Scott Lewia.
“I have been watching Michael Wrigley wrestle since he was a 4th grader wrestling for Wells’ PeeWee Program,” commented Moody-Maxon. “He was a great wrestler then and he has only grown as both a person and as an athlete. He is calm and cool on the mat and is a true competitor that is well respected by both his teammates and his coaches, but also by his competition.”
Wrigley earned 49 wins this past wrestling season in his weight class of 170 pounds bringing his high school career total wins to 116.
During the season he became South Regional Champion at 170, mid-State League Champion at 170, and State Class-B Runner Up. He was a member of the State Championship Wrestling Team, and winner of the Sean Sheehy Award for being the top Wells wrestler at the Atlantics Invitational in December. He is his team’s co-MVP, sharing that honor with teammate Nolan Potter. In February, the WHS Wrestling Team, led by Coach Lewia, won the State Championship in Bucksport; the first time since 1996.
The Student-Athlete of the Month awards program at Wells High School is in its 11th year. It is sponsored by the Cole Harrison Insurance Agency and Moody Maxon Real Estate. Recipients of the award are chosen by the administration at Wells High School.
