Wrestling delayed as winter sports begin
BAR HARBOR — Winter sports began Monday at MDI High School, but one sport has been delayed for the time being as the school searches for a new head coach.
MDI’s wrestling season has been delayed for at least a week as the school could not appoint a coach in time for the first winter practices. The team’s previous head coach, Tony Dalisio, tendered his resignation last Monday.
Should MDI still be able to start its preseason slate on time, the team will participate in a meet at Bucksport at 10 a.m. next Saturday, Dec. 4. The team is scheduled to open the regular season with a home meet against Caribou, Dexter, Washington Academy and Piscataquis at noon on Dec. 11.
With the exception of indoor track, all other winter sports at MDI began with tryouts or the first practices Monday. Practices will continue Nov. 26, with teams taking Thanksgiving Day off.
