On March 6th, the Wells-Ogunquit CSD School Committee recognized the Wells Warriors Wrestling team and coaches for a very successful season which ended with their third consecutive State Class B championship win.

This past season the team scored 18 wins and three losses. On their quest for the state title, the team first became Mid-State League Champs and then Southern Maine Class B Regional Champions. In addition, Head Coach Scott Lewia was acknowledged for being named "Coach of the Year" for the third time in four years by the Mid-State Wrestling League.

Coach Lewia was also recognized for receiving "The Torch Award" for his role in the team's raising of over $30,000 in support of Spencer Smith, son of WHS alumnus, Nate Smith, whom Lewia had coached.

Lewia was one of only four recipients globally presented with a Torch Award by the Sanofi Genzyme Corporation, a specialty care unit of Sanofi, a multi-national pharmaceutical company based in Paris.
