Madigan Saunders and Madelin Svetin, went head to head and provided an exciting race from starting gun to finish. This time it was Madigan Saunders touching out Madelin Svetin by:04 hundredths of a second. Next time Madelin probably won't trim her fingernails before the event.

In the 200 Free, Gabby Rowe row row rowed her body to a first place finish and Riley Robertson and Gwen Martin completed a 1-2-3 finish. Abby Anderson expanded her horizons with her first foray in the 200 IM and acquitted herself quite nicely with a 3rd place finish. Grace Trebilcock broke 3 minutes with a 4th place finish and Kaitlyn Doughty swam a new PR to finish 5th. In the 500 Free, the Eagles finished 2-3-4. Grace Trebilcock swam a PR by 8 seconds to finish 2nd. Abby Anderson dipped under the 7-minute mark with 3rd place finish and Gabby Rowe (4th) trimmed 6 seconds off her previous best.

Sam Wright commanded a first place finish in the 200 IM and 2nd in the 100 Fly, the two most physically and technically challenging events.

Ararat /Lisbon /Morse senior Sam Alexander's hard snap shot ricocheted off the end boards over the top of the net, bouncing off Poland /Leavitt /Oak Hill /GNG goaltender Dakota Soucy's back and into the net late in the 3rd period to give the Eagles a big comeback 4-3 victory over the Kings Tuesday night at Watson Arena.

Jan 12, 2018 - Girls, Boys 2nd (Again)
There were some special happenings at the Colby College as both the Boys and Girls again placed second. Personal bests continued to accumulate.
In the race of truth, the 400 Meter Dash, Sara York ran a personal best time of 1:03.30 to win the event. Sara has trimmed a second of her times each time she has run the event this year and there does not seem to be a limit to how much faster she can go. The Lady Eagles have a stableful of fast runners. This time it was Zoe Stevenson, Fay O'Donnell, and Holly Temple who trotted out season best times in the 400. In the Mile, the Eagles had three competitors and three season best performances. Katherine Leckbee ran a barn-burning time of 5:25.15 that puts her way ahead of schedule for the rest of the year. Josie Miller and Campbell Tankersly also ran season best times with Campbell cutting 17 seconds off her previous best.
Consistency, thy name is Katie Lynch. Katie duplicated her time of 10.11 from last week in the 55 Hurdles while moving up a notch to 3rd place. Katie also placed 8th in the 55 Meter Dash.
Wyley Fitzpatrick ran her fastest to 200 of the year to finish 4th. Emily Smith was a pleasant surprise with a sub 29-second race and finished 11th. In the 800, Rebecca French continued her comeback from an early season injury with a 6th finish and Marhabo Uzoqova lopped 11 seconds off her previous best time.
The Eagles have a bevy of beauties in the Shot Put arena. There is a nice mixture of old and young, tall and small. This provides lots of competition. On any given week, different girls rule. This week it was Brennan Thiboutot, followed by Gabie Head, Holly Temple, Abby Kons, Kodie Crane (who tossed a PR), Annie Wilkins, Tegan Byrne, Caroline Wheeler, and Libby Boutin. This order can reverse itself on any given week.
In the High Jump pit, three girls soared above 4-08. Sara York placed 2nd clearing 4-10 and both Cassie Kane and Brennan Thiboutot cleared 4-08 to finish 5-6. In the Pole Vault, Hope Langworthy finished 3rd followed by Emily Smith (5th) and Annie Wilkins (6th). In the Triple Jump, Holly Temple and Brennan Thiboutot were the top Eagles finishers.
In the Long Jump, Wyley Fitzpatrick soared to her season best leap to finish 2nd followed by Heather Gallant, Cassie Kane, and Emelia Barker.
Lisandro Berry-Gaviria dipped below the 10 minute mark in the 2 Mile chopping 13 seconds of his previous best to place first. Nate Cohen was riding his coattails to finish in second place with a PR of his own. Nate slashed almost a minute from his previous best time. Gideon Wheeler also ran a strong race establishing a new PR. In the Mile, Matt Kenison set a new PB while also dipping under the 6 minute mark in the Mile with a time of 5:50.10. Who's next to break six minutes? Jack Mathieu is on the doorstep (6:01.24). Daniel Blake continues to assault his own personal best times, ravishing 20 seconds of his previous best Mile time.
Getting back to the speed events, where the Boys have outstanding depth, it was Holden Brannan holding bragging rights with a 2nd place finish. He was followed by Jax Hollenbach, Tommy Leslie, Hunter Lohr, Sam Gatchall, and Connor Ingalls. It was Jason Halliday (3rd), Tyler Bernier (5th), and Holden Brannan (6th) scoring points for the Eagles in the 200. Joshua Huntsman ran a PR in the 400 to finish 4th followed by Tommy Leslie and Sam Gatchall. In the 800, Codie Fee an a PR to finish in the top ten.
Caden Pond was the top rock thrower in the shot Put finishing 4th. He was followed by Joshua Huntsman and Mitchell Surace. In the High Jump, Hunter Lohr took 5th lace with a PR, followed by Tyler Bernier and Jason Halliday. In the Long Jump it was Tyler Bernier (4th) and Maximo Varela (6th) with Tyler reaching a new PR. The Triple Jump featured 5th place finish by Hunter Lohr, followed by Huntsman and Varela. Maximo Varela debuted in the Pole Vault with a 6th place finish clearing 9-00.
Jan 11, 2018 - Eagles Roll to 3rd in a Row - Beat Camden Hills 49-44
The Eagles rattled off their third win in a row over Camden Hills. Kyla Greenleaf was the Eagles leading scorer with 11 points including three treys. Lauren Sturgess added t10 points. Once again, the Eagles built up an early lead and once again they fought back a valiant comeback attempt by the Windjammers. Grace Liedman and Theresa Breed both hit important free throws down the stretch to ensure the Eagles win.
Jan 9, 2018 - Eagles Hang on - Beat Morse 44-41
Ainsley Bryant sored a game high 14 points, most of them coming when Morse threatened to complete their comeback attempt as the Eagles outlasted Morse 44-41 at the Hangar. The Eagles built up a 14-point lead early in the first half, but Morse did not give up. The Shipbuilders chipped away and whittled the Eagles lead to 7 points at the half, 29-22. Morse patiently continued their comeback. All of a sudden, the game was tied twice midway through the final quarter. Both times, Ainsley Bryant hit jumpers, one for two points and one for three points from virtually the same spot on the floor to give the Eagles a 40-36 lead with a little more than three minutes left in the game. Lauren Sturgess hit a three from the top of the key to provide what proved to be the winning margin.
Kyla Greenleaf contributed 9 points and Lauren Sturgess ended up with 7 points.
Jan 11, 2018 - Eagles Lose Thriller 80-79 to Camden
The Eagles waged a massive comeback in the second half and came up just short as the Windjammers escaped with an 80-79 win. Trailing 25-6 and 40-25 at the first two breaks, the Eagles rode the coattails of the sharp-shooting Greg Malin, who hit six three pointers in the third quarter alone (That has to be a school record!). Greg ended up with 8 three pointers for the night (which also must be a school record). The Eagles outscored the Windjammers 27-16 in the final quarter to come with in one point, but ultimately fell to the tyranny of the clock.
Jan 9, 2018 - Eagles in Overdrive Beating Morse 85-65
The Eagles responded to a 10-5 deficit early in the first quarter with an 18-0 run that extended into the second quarter. Morse never seriously challenged the rest of the way. Ryan Mello scored 15 points, most of which came on penetrating drives with corkscrew-like finishes. Jarad Balsar added 14 points, had a trio of blocked shots, and brought down the house with a slam dunk to put the exclamation point on the victory. Greg Malin hit four three-pointers. Every Eagle scored, including freshman Nathan Taylor, who netted his first varsity bucket with a three-pointer.
Jan 10, 2018 - Eagles Ladies 3rd, Boys 7th at Sugarloaf 5K
Nine Schools gathered at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center on a relatively balmy day for a rare mid-week meet. The high temperatures created some concern with waxing, but as the temperatures started to dip in the late afternoon, the decision seemed correct. The Event was a Classic style race, which is familiar to us old-timers, but not to the younger generation who have been brought up using the skate technique. So many skiers were on the beginning arc of the learning curve. For many, it was their first official Classic style race. Although small in numbers, the Eagles put in some impressive performances.
Morse's Jenny Wilbraham, who practices with the Eagles, came in first for the second consecutive meet. Jenny's race does not count for the Eagels. By herself, she finished fifth in the Morse team total.
The Eagles have a young team and are small in numbers. Six of the eight girls on the team are freshman, the other two are sophomores. Karli Leighton was the first Eagle to finish in 8th place with an excellent time of 22:33 in her first Classic competition. Anna "Action" Jackson was clicking on all cylinders with a 17th palce finish. Sadie Skinner was a mere six seconds behind her for a 18th place finish. Newbie Camila (abc...xyz) Ciembroniewicz was 28th. Ella Carter and Maggie Libby finished a second apart (the event uses a staggered start so they weren't actually duking it out at the finish line) to place 29th and 30th. And Olivia Tobin had a strong race while finishing 36th.
Hayden Libby and Will Kinney were the only Boys competing for the Eagles. Hayden is back for his second year and skied a strong race to finish 20th. Expect newcomer Will "the Thrill" Kinney, who finished 43rd, to make great strides as the season progresses.
A special shout out to Coaches Julie "Spa", Kevin Leighton, and Sharon Wilbraham for the time, effort, and knowledge they share with their athletes.
Jan 8, 2018 - Eagles Celebrate 3-1 Win over Gorham
It's been a long time (11/21/2015) since the Eagles have posted a win. This match up vs Gorham /Massabesic / Bonny Eagles was eagerly anticipated as the Eagles knew this was a golden opportunity to end the streak. The Eagles were not about to let this chance slip by.
From the opening drop of the puck, the Eagles came out flying. Alyssa Dau, who according to Coach Hutchins played the best game of her career, paced the line of Eola Saucier and Amber Card. The Eagles pressured throughout the game, but the Gorham goalie, Izzi Wereham, brought her horseshoe along with her and turned away shot after shot by the Eagles.
The first period ended up scoreless. Eola Saucier scored on a power play goal when she knocked a pass from Alyssa Dau, (the girl they call Blue - I don't know why) past the Gorham goalkeeper to open the second period.
In the third period, Eola Saucier set up Amber Card in front and Amber gave the Eagles a little more breathing room when she potted a goal. The tension was palpable as both teams pressured. Gorham's Emily Chapin made things a
little lot more exciting when she scored with 6 minutes left. The pressure intensified until freshman Abby Lucas put the game away with an empty net goal.
Lily Schenk was outstanding in the net for the Eagles turning away 17 of the 18 shots she faced.
It was a well deserved win for the Eagles, who have conducted themselves with class throughout the streak, have embraced the joy of competing, and have endured and even celebrated 5:00 AM practices. Our collective hats are off to you.
