Coach: Gary Dolloff (12th year)

Conference: Mid-State Class: B

Last year’s record: League champions, fourth in state meet

Returning athletes: Seniors — Alan Carrier, Mike Provencher; Juniors — Caleb Austin, Ethan Boucher, Eddie Deroche; Sophomores — Mike Arsenault, Isaac Therrien.

Key losses: Ian Austin, Dakota Jacques, Brandon Gill, Coyote Freeman.

Promising newcomers: Juniors — Ian Jacques, Drew McKenna; Sophomores — Ian Brennick, Vinny Deroche; Freshmen — John Andrews, Darren Buono, Isaiah Doherty, Kennedy Hamner, Eli Stickney, Josh Thibodeau.

Outlook: Mountain Valley’s strength is its junior class and the lower weight classes. Boucher is a two-time state champion at 120 points. Deroche was Class B runner-up at 126, and Austin was a medalist two years ago as a freshman. Numbers are on the rise, and that will help the Falcons in dual meets and in the quest to defend their conference title.
