Feb 19, 2018 - PRs Dominate at Girls State Swim Championship

Anna Harbo lowered her school record in the 500 Free and several girls swam PRs at the State Championship meet held at Orono. The Girls finished 15th overall in a strong field.

Anna Harbo, who limited Cora Spelke's reign as school record holder to a week, when she swam a new school record a week later in early December, was in peak form at the State Championship. She trimmed almost 5 seconds off the record to touch out with a Top 10 finish (9th) in 5:44.08. But don't feel to sorry for Cora. She still has three years to set her sights on that record and, if she swims like she did in the Championship meet, she has a good chance to. Meanwhile, getting back to the reality of the current day, Cora was busy distinguishing herself. She registered the Eagles top finish with a 4th place finish in the 100 Back. She also swam a solid 200 Free to finish 16th. Kaitlyn Doughty set a PR and has lowered her time by by five seconds since the beginning the season in the 100 Back. In the 200 Free, Grace Trebilcock swam a PR by 5 seconds and Gabby Rowe swam a strong race.

In the 50 Free, the intrepid trio of Madigan Saunders, Madelin Svetin, and Abbie Anderson were all closely bunched. Madelin and Abby both swam PRs, but Madigan led the band finishing 23rd, followed by Madelin in 26th place, and Abbie right behind in 29th place. In the 100 Free, Abbie (28th) reversed the tables with another PR time, besting Madigan, who finished in 34th place.

The svelte one, Madelin Svetin, had a strong race in the 100 Fly with an 11th place finish and a PR by an amazing 3 seconds. Anna Harbo set a new PR in the event to finish 27th. Grace Trebilcock represented the Eagles well in the 100 Breast with a 31st place finish.

Feb 17, 2018 - Boys Impress at State Swim Championship

The Boys travelled to Orono to compete in the Boys State Swim Championship on Saturday. The Boys, who are small in number, but big in heart and effort, sent four swimmers to the meet.

Max followed that performance with a 23rd place finish in the 100 Back, followed by Sam Wright, who swam well, to finish in 39th place.

The Boys teamed up and swam to an impressive 10th place finish in the 200 Medley Relay and 16th in the 200 Free.

Feb 8, 2018 - Dragons Beat Eagles 68-38

It was the season finalé for these two cross town rivals. The game lacked a bit of luster as Brunswick was safely ensconced in the playoff bracket and the Eagles were on the outside looking in. That scenario gave Coach Jeff Hogan free rein to give his eight seniors plenty of playing time in the last game of their high school careers on Senior Night.

Peter Lavan provided one of the high lites of the first quarter when he lowered his shoulder, and bulldozed his way thru a defender, reminiscent of his time on the football field. Peter turned from brute force to finesse when he finished a soft touch floater that rippled through the net. A Ryan Mello penetration culminated in a dish to Jarad Balsar for an easy two. Ryan later scored one of his prototypical all hustle drives. His shot didn't fall, but he was right there to convert the put back. The Eagles trailed 16-7 after the first quarter.

Austin Damon, who has played his heart out all year, made his presence known in the second quarter. He sank a pair of free throws and then completed a power drive for two more points. Seniors Tanner Greenleaf, Mike Rogers, and Greg Malin all got on the board. Tanner converted two free throws. Mike hit a 15-foot baseline J, and Greg swished a three-pointer. Brunswick held a comfortable 34-18 lead at the half.

Ryan Mello hustled his way to a basket on a put back to start the second half. Max Spelke finished a drive with a pirouette move before he dropped his shot in and Nate Taylor came off the bench firing as he drained a shot from three-point land. Peter Lavan showed that the big guy has some moves with some nice gyrations under the hoop as he layed it in.

Kyle Brennan lit up the fourth quarter with an old-fashioned three-point play and another hoop. Seniors James Singleton and Ben Freeman got on the board with baskets in the closing seconds as the Eagles finished their season with a 7-11 record.

It was senior Night at the Hangar and the Coach Morris and the Ararat Nation honored their two seniors, Caitlyn Smith and Lauren Sturgess for all their contributions to the program in a pre-game ceremony.

The Dragons, who came into the game unbeaten (17-0) and ranked #1 in the Heal point standings were intent on completing a perfect season. They took control from the start, bursting out to a 13-0 lead before the Eagles were able to get a shot. Caitlyn Smith and Ainsley Bryant scored the only points for the Eagles. Meanwhile, Brunswick's defense was pressing and forced many Eagle turnovers. Offensively, the Dragons were hitting from both the inside and outside on their way to a 20-2 lead at the first break.

Things got a little better in the second quarter for the Eagles. Theresa Breed went to work in the paint. Theresa does what Theresa does best - drive to the hoop and get fouled. Of course, she also is a great foul shooter. She made six in a row. Lauren Sturgess added a fee throw and Alexa Eaton hit a baseline jumper with 40 seconds left in the half.

In the second half, Lauren Sturgess heated up and scored six consecutive points for the Eagles. She converted on a put-back and a pair of treys that gave the crowd something to cheer about. The Eagles were shut out in the final quarter until the last minute when Alexa Eaton hit a pair of free throws. Ainsley Bryant and Jaden Lohr added freebies in the final seconds.

The Eagles were assessed a penalty early on. Gabby Mason, playing in goal for the Eagles, made two quick saves before Colleen McKearney scored with an assist going to Tasha Schneiderat. The Eagles came right back when Alyssa Dau broke in and snapped off a wrist shot. Brunswick's goalie, Hannah Wentworth, made the save, but the left the rebound out front, but unfortunately no Eagle could collect it. The teams continued to skate both ends of the ice. Gabby Mason made a nice pad save and Brunswick's Collen McKearney was showing her muscle. She leveled Chloe Beattie at center ice and on the same shift leveled another Eagle. Two pretty hard hits in a no checking game and no penalties were called. But the Eagles got their revenge seconds later when Ema Hawkes broke in and fired and Maddy Young picked up loose puck and tied the score.

Brunswick was whistled for a tripping call and then another Dragon penalty put the Eagles on two-man power play advantage. But the Brunswick defense stepped up and kept the Eagles from getting any good scoring opportunities. Action picked up at both ends of the ice in the closing minutes. Ema Hawkes was in the center of the action on offense for the Eagles. She created a good chance when she outraced her defender and fired. Brunswick broke right back and had a couple of shots that Gabby Mason turned away. Next, it was Ema's turn and she wristed a shot the whistled just wide. With 47 seconds left, Alyssa Dau broke in alone. Wentworth made the save, but Kayleigh Temple roared in and blasted the puck past Wentworth to give the Eagles a 2-1 lead after the first period.

The Eagles came out flying to start the second period. Ema Hawkes broke in, made a nice move, shifted to her backhand, but was robbed by Wentworth. Eola Saucier followed with a hard shot that soared high. With the Eagles playing a man down, Tasha Schneiderat skated in from the corner and took a tough angle shot that somehow got past Gabby Mason to tie the game at 2-2. After Brunswick killed off a penalty, they responded with two goals to take a 4-2 lead. In the closing minutes, after Bre Hunter had won a battle along the boards and sent the puck into the offensive zone, she was rewarded by Colleen McKerney with a Brad Marchand-worthy elbow to Bre's head. In the closing minute, McKerney delivered a cross check in front of her net away from the play. No calls were made.

The third period sent the excitement meter off the charts. Both teams were flying up and down the ice. Maddy Young and Lexi Saxton worked together to get a pair of shots. Ema Hawkes kept the pressure when she sent a centering pass through the crease. At the other end, Gabby Mason stuffed a Brunswick attacker who had broken in alone. At 10:52, Maddy Young was buzzing at center ice, She picked up a mishandled puck and broke in and poked it past Wentworth to make it a one-goal game, 4-3. But Brunswick's Elena Palmer (daughter of MTA Track Coach, Stu Palmer) scored the first of her two goals to restore Brunswick's two-goal lead. The Eagles answered on the next shift. Lexi Saxton picked up a loose puck and beat Wentworth to narrow the deficit to 5-4 with 8:31 left. The Eagles kept the pressure on. Eola Saucier wristed a shot from the slot that challenged Wentworth. Ema Hawkes pranced in from the right side and fired a shot that Wentworth rejected. Kayleigh Temple loaded her cannon from the point and fired. Eola Saucier tipped the shot just wide. With five minutes remaining, Elena Palmer made two nifty moves, moved in, and beat Gabby to her glove side to make it 6-4. The Eagles were starting to run out of gas, but Colby Leighton made a valiant attempt with some hard work along the boards and a shot that was saved by Wentworth

Congratulations to the seniors who played their last high school game and made it an exciting one. Video of the ceremony coming soon.
