Play-off Time for Most Winter Sports Teams

Regular season competition has ended for all but the Boys Hockey team, and now the play-offs begin for some teams and individuals in others. Here is the story.

Boys Basketball With a record of 15-3, the team is ranked #1 in the Heal Points in Western Maine Class B. They start the hunt for the State Championship with a Quarterfinal game against Gray-New Gloucester at the Expo at 4:00 on Saturday, February 14th.

Girls Basketball The girls' record of 7-11 represents their best record in several years. With the whole team returning next year, look for continued improvement.

Boys Hockey After starting the year 0-5, the team' record now stands at 7-7-1, with three games remaining against higher ranked opponents. Stayed tune to hear where they place in the play-off picture.

Girls Hockey The girls compiled a 10-7-1 record in the regular season. They won an Eastern Maine Quarterfinal game against St Dom's before losing to a very strong Lewiston team in the Semi-Finals. Highlight of the season was a 3-0 shut-out of Falmouth.

Swimming Though both Boys and Girls team were small in numbers, they each won several regular season meets and finished respectably in the Southwesterns. Most of the swimmers from each team have qualified for the State Class B championships at UMO on Saturday, February 14th for the boys, and Monday, the 16th for the girls. Eliza Lunt '17 won the breaststroke at the Southwesterns and should be a real threat in Orono.

Indoor Track The program continues to grow. Both teams compete in weekly WMC meets on Fridays at USM, usually finishing in the middle of the pack. At the WMC Championships, for the boys, Darren Shi '15 won the shot put, Sam Gerken '15 placed second in the 800, Luke Laverdiere '18 was second in the mile. Emma Egan '16 had an outstanding meet for the girls, winning the high jump, and placing second in both the Sr. 55 and the long jump. In addition to those named above, several other team members have qualified for the States this week-end at Bates.

Skiing In a season complicated by not enough snow in the beginning, then too much snow and cold weather, the skiers have persevered. The teams head to Presque Isle this week-end for the both the Alpine and Nordic Class B championships.
