BOYS LACROSSE

April 20, 2017 - Dragons Slay Eddies, 16-2

Brunswick scored early and often as they controlled the ball most of the game by dominating the face-offs. They used a balanced attack with eight players scoring goals. It was 6-0 before the Hank Gilson scored from point blank range to get the Eagles on the board. Sawyer Watson scored the other Eagles goal. Parker Lacey (3) and Dan Jackson split duties in the net for the Eagles.

Did you know? ...
Face-off rules have changed frequently through lacrosse's history. There was a time during the 1979 season when the opposing team was automatically awarded the ball at midfield after the other team scored. This rule change was made because some individuals were so adept at winning the face-off that the other team NEVER got the ball. This rule change only lasted one year, but when the face off was re-instituted, the rules on how the face off was set up theoretically made it harder for an individual to dominate. The face off rules continue to be tweaked throughout the years, but individuals continue to figure out ways to dominate the face off.
SOFTBALL

April 19, 2017 - Eagles Take Off vs Messalonskee, 12-3

The Eagles jumped out to a 7-0 lead after an inning and a half, aided and abetted by the wildness of the Messalonskee hurler who handed out 7 walks in the first two innings and 14 overall. The Eagles Alana Weaver, on the other hand, walked no one, scattered 7 hits, and struck out five. Katelyn Cox (3 for 3 with 3 RBIs), Belle Benner (2 for 4 with 3 RBIs) and Morgan Johnson with a line shot ground rule double that plated two Eagles were the big offensive contributors for the Eagles.

OUTDOOR TRACK

April 14, 2017 - Eagles Open at Lewiston

Track season is upon us and the Eagles opened with a meet at Lewiston with Oxford Hills and Brunswick. Meets early in the season are always interesting with some athletes in mid-season form and others still rounding into shape.

GIRLS

Ladies first! Well actually they were second, but they had plenty of eyebrow raising performances.

Something magical is happening over in the Pole Vault pit. Little Leaping Lauren Labbay tied her school record vault clearing the bar at 8-06 to capture first place. Ashley Parker cleared 8-00 to place second followed by the Emilys (Smith and McCracken), and Hope Langworthy. Lauren better not become too complacent because all of these girls have the talent and desire to challenge her record this year.

The Eagles also had success in the Long Jump pit. Wyley FitzPatrick led of the season with an eye-popping leap of 16-04.50 to win easily. Leaping Lauren Labbay transformed her vertical leaping ability into horizontal mode to place second behind Wyley. The Eagles finished 2-3-4 in the technically challenging Triple Jump with Wyley FitzPatrick (2), Alyssa Dau (3), and Caitlin Chambers (4) all registering jumps longer than 26-08. In the High Jump, Sara York picked up where she left off finishing 2nd, clearing the bar at 4-06. Cassie Kane and Zoe Stevenson picked up points with 4th and 5th place finishes respectively. In the Strength events, Haley Frizzle was top fiddle with a 3-4-5 finish in the Shot Put, Javelin, and Discus. Abby Kons had a good day in the shot with a toss of 27-08 to finish 7th.

In the Sprints, Colette Kinkade was top dog. She won the 400 Meters, which always is a tough race, but particularly so in the early season. Colette also finished 4th in the 100. In the 200, the Eagles had four competitors in the top ten. Wyley FitzPatrick (2) and Sara York (4) both finished in under 30 seconds with Colette Kinkade just a hair over to finish 7th and Zoe Stevenson finiishing 9th. Katie Lynch and Fay O'Donnell high-stepped their way to a 3rd and 5th place finish in the 300 Hurdles. In the distance events, the Eagles showed their depth. In the 800, Josie Miller (2) led Lindsey Papa (5), Anna "Action" Jackson (6), and Cassie Kane (7) across the line. In the 1600, Katherine Leckbee showed she is in tip-top shape as she cruised to a victory by 25 seconds. Katherine got some speed work in with a 3rd place finish in the 400. Caitlin Chambers (7), Action Jackson (8), and Emily Smith (9) all had top ten finishes. In the 3200, Campbell Tankersly and Hope Langworthy finished 4-5.

The Girls showed their depth as they dominated in the Relays. The team of Wyley Fitzpatrick, Katherine Leckbee, Katie Lynch, and Sara York powered to a victory by more than 20 seconds in the 4 x 400. Take another look at that line-up. They are young and fast. In the 4 x 800, Katie Lynch led teammates Caitlin Chambers, Campbell Tankersly, and Josie Miller to a first place finish. In the 4 x 100, the team of Sara York, Colette Kinkade, Lauren Labbay, and Zoe Stevenson finished 2nd.

Dalton Streeter had a good day in the jumping pits. He finished 3rd in both the Long Jump and Triple Jump. Jax Hollenbach placed 8th in the Triple Jump. Steven Gerencer heaved the rock 34-01 to finish 4th in the Shot Put event. Nate Emerson placed 8th in the event. Max Spelke, the Isiah Thomas of the Javelin throwers, continued to excel in the Jav with 5th place finish.

In the sprints, Jason Halliday (8), Dalton Streeter(10), Tommy Leslie (11), and Jordan Jawdat (14) were the top Eagle finishers in the 100. In the 200, the top Eagles were Cole Guerin (7), Tommy Leslie (8), Jason Halliday (12), and Ethan Rac (13). In the 400, Jordan Jawdat ran an impressive race to finish 5th behind Cam Meier.

BOYS TENNIS

April 13, 2017 - Eagles Open Season vs Lewiston

The Eagles Boys Tennis team opened their season against Lewiston. They came out on the wrong end of a 4-1 loss. But don't worry, it's early in the season. Coach Don Foley is welcoming back three-time KVAC Champion and State Champion Nick Mathieu and every other player from last year's roster. Peter Mao, a top ten player from last year, was out with an injury, but is expected back soon. Returning players Matt Mosher and Eli Begert are natural athletes who have improved tremendously since last year. Nathan Kofroth returns from last season and is one of those quiet guys who has good ground strokes and makes the tough shots when they count. Newcomer Lucas Piatt has already earned the #3 Singles spot and Tristan Caswell-Ridday and David Neufeld team up to offer a combination of athleticism and intellectualism in their approach to the game. Senior Jacob Sturgess, a soccer super-star, will be joining the team as soon as he recovers from a mild concussion.

Nick Mathieu showed he is ready to defend his title with a 6-0, 6-0 dismantling of Lewiston's talented Cole Ouelette. On a blustery spring day, Nick exhibited his array of consistent ground strokes, net play, and accurate serving skills. Matt Mosher dropped a 6-3, 6-2 loss in a game filled with long, well-played volleys. Lucas Piatt lost 6-2, 6-3, but you could see the potential ready to burst forth in his game.

In Doubles action, Eli Begert and Nathan Kofroth fell 6-0, 6-2. I'm kind of surprised by the final score considering how well they played in the games I watched. Tristan Caswell-Riday and David Neufeld got bagled at 6-0, 6-0, but you could see the improvement as they started to figure out the geometric aspects of the game.

It should be an interesting season, especially when the Eagles get healthy.

GIRLS TENNIS

April, 13, 2017 - Lewiston Clips Eagles 5-0

With 19 players, the Eagles have a large contingent of players, which is always a good thing. What they lack in experience, they make up in enthusiasm. In their first match of the season, Lewiston dominated. The girls have a lot of work to do, but it will be fun to watch them develop.
