Last year, Del Gallo went on to win the New England title in the 106-pound division.

Craig, who finished fifth at the New Englands last year, pinned Marshwood’s Josh Marks in the 120 finals. Craig’s younger brother Cody won the 106 title while Skowhegan teammate Kaleb Brown beat Monmouth’s Stewart Buzzell 7-2 in the 145-pound division.

The top three finishers in each weight class qualify for the New England meet while fourth-place finishers are alternates, Also qualifying were three-time Class B state champ Aaron Lint of Winslow in the heavyweight division where he pinned Mt. Blue’s Wil Gunter in the finals and Skowhegan’s Kameron Doucette, who lost to Class A state champ Dominick Day of Biddeford, 10-5 in overtime at 138 pounds.

SLALOM

WOMEN: Colby’s Mardi Haskell finished second overall to help the Mules to a second-place team finish at the Eastern Championships at the Middlebury Snow Bowl in Middlebury, Vt.
