SOFTBALL

2018 Softball Season in Review

The Eagles started out with many question marks after last year's exodus of talented seniors. No bigger a problem presented itself than who would replace Eagles stalwart pitcher, Alana "Dream' Weaver. The season took a serious hit when highly rated pitcher, Holly Temple, went down with a back injury and saw very limited action in the field and none on the mound after the first game. This deprived us of seeing the Temple sisters working in tandem in front of and behind the plate. Additionally, the Eagles lost the services of Belle Benner, the uber centerfielder, who missed the majority of the season with mononucleosis. Captain Zoe Stilphen steadied the tiller through this storm and as usually happens, other girls stepped up. After a rocky 1-5 start, the Eagles roared back and qualified for the play-offs.

At the Sports Awards ceremony, Morgan Johnson was awarded the Coaches Award and Zoe Stilphen received the Senior Award. I have a few awards of my own to hand out , complete witha musical tribute. As always, if you didn't get an award, go ahead and gie yourself one. You deserve it.

Award Winner
Sitting in the Hall of Fame Award goes to Kayleigh Temple. In her fourth year in the league, other teams knew about the legendary powers of Kayleigh Temple's arm. Run on her, they did not. Maybe they should have learned not to pitch to her either. Kayleigh ended up bashing .568 with 4 doubles, 2 triples, and 20 RBIs despite missing 4 games.
My name is Zoe Award goes to Zoe Stilphen, of course. Zoe moved from third base to shortstop this year. She transitioned smoothly displaying sure hands, great range, and a strong, accurate arm. At the plate she banged out 22 hits, scored 21 runs, and batted .393. That's just a few reasons for the sign below.

Belle of the (soft) Ball Award goes to Belle Benner. Belle was known throughout the league as a gold glove center fielder, who covered large swaths of real estate, made acrobatic catches, and possessed a strong arm. Opposing hitters were well aware of Belle's capabilities as they witnessed her, time after time, tracking down potential doubles and triples and turning them into just another episode of the Belle Benner Web Gem Show.
Moore is More Award Shelby Moore proved that more is, in fact, Moore. This girl is multi-faceted and multi talented. Shelby played some great defense, delivered timely hits, and always had a positive attitude.
Morning Morgan(town) Award goes to Morgan Johnson. She has a contagious spirit that is inspiring and uplifting to everyone that she meets. Morgan has been on the edges throughout her softball career. This year she was asked to step up to fill the role of starting pitcher, a role she shared with Camille Rowe. Morgan filled in more than capably, and flashed some serious leather at first base and in the outfield when she wasn't on the mound, and added some timely hits that won games.
Epitome of Determination Award goes to Kelsey Scannevin. Kelsey was injured early in the season, but she worked hard to get ready and gradually she inserted herself into the line-up. She treated every at bat as a war. She was a fighter, a hustler, a scrapper whose enthusiasm was contagious.

Amanda O'Neill was the only junior on the team. She was asked to move from position to position which is not an easy thing to do. Amanda didn't let the revolving door effect her hitting. She hit a solid .333 with good run production and a .415 on base percentage. Amanda will be asked to do a lot next year, and she proved she is ready.

Future Cy Young Award - With Holly Temple's injury, Camille Rowe was thrust into the rotation and showed tremendous improvements as the season progressed. She has an assortment of pitches, good control, and a savvy temperament. She will only get better.

Future Cy Even Younger Award - goes to Holly Temple, who will be back next year healthy and stronger than ever.

The Eagles had four freshman starters, which can only portend good things for the future. Ema Hawkes was my Rookie of the Year, not only for the Eagles, but also for the KVAC. She is, in no particular order, fast, a catalyst, versatile, and team a player. She can hit for power, bunt for base hits, steal bases, and create havoc on the diamond. She played multiple positions for the Eagles and even made a couple of Belle Benner-like catches in the outfield.

Jaden Lohr played a steady third base for the Eagles, not an easy position for a freshman. She not only fielded her position with aplomb, but showed increasing bat awareness at the plate as the season progressed. She finished with a .308 average. Her future is bright.

Emily Wormwood typified the new major league player. She was either boom or bust. Most of the time she was boom. She carries a big bat and pounded out 3 doubles and 4 triples. I'll stand back when Emily comes to bat next year.

Second base man Jaymie Weidner's fielding was a perfect complement to Zoe Stilphen as part of the keystone combo. Jaymie's glove kept her in the line-up, but here is my bold prediction - she will be an all star at the bat before she is done.

2018 Boys Tennis Hi-Lites


Boys Tennis Season Wrap Up

Peter Mao shows his touch with a forehand winner
Peter Mao shows his touch with a forehand winner

The Boys very quietly and without much fanfare put together another very successful season. Perhaps this is not surprising given that their top player, and KVAC Player of the Year, Peter Mao is a quiet, thoughtful human being. He plays with a certain dignity, his shot selection is well considered (and well-placed), his movement efficient, and his strategy well calculated. He had a great season and will have a great future. Ryan Glass, a baseball ex-pat, turned to tennis for his senior year. Unlike other previous senior newbies, Ryan had an extensive tennis background. His skill set was displayed immediately with stinging forehands, flat off-speed backhands, and deft drop shots that he used to dismantle his opponents throughout the season. Matt MOsher played in the #3 slot most of the season with occasional bumps up tp number 2 and even number. Matt uses the European grip and has a powerful forehand and backhand. He's in excellent shape and often wears out his opponent.

There were a couple of freshman on the team who had a big impact on the team's success. Zander Chown and Luke Curnin played first team doubles and both players showed some exquisite shot making prowess.

A coach can ask no more of his athletes than to improve over the course of the season. Coach Foley has to be pleased with the continued development of Jacob Fusco, Natah Kofroth, David Neufeld, and Tristan Riday-Caswell.

At the recent MTA Awards night, Peter Mao was named Outstanding Senior and Matt Mosher was named winner of the Coaches Award. I have some awards of my own to pass out. These awards are given out in the spirit of good humour (hopefully) and levity. If you did not receive an award, go ahead and give yourself one, because you deserve it. If you let me know what award you deserve, I will publish it. And when it's published on www.mtasports.com, you know it's true.


mtasports.com Awards for Boys Tennis

Award Winner
KVAC Player of the Year Award Peter Mao was selected as KVAC Player of the Year. He doesn't need any awards from me.
Glass Half Full Award They say his fastball couldn't break a pane of glass, yet he painted the corners like a Mona Lisa. Of course, they also said this about HOFer Whitey Ford. Ryan Glass changed sports in his senior year and showed the same unassuming, yet tremendously effective, skills in Tennis. Never overpowering, just consistently setting up his opponent and hitting winners. Ryan's glass is not half full, it's overflowing with talent
TGIR Award The Thank God Its Riday Award goes to Tristan Caswell-Riday for obvious reasons.
The Big Masher Award goes to Matt 'the Masher' Mosher for his outsized game.
Cool Hand Luke Award goes to Luke Churnin, whom I don't suggest ever try this stunt (especially before a tennis match)
Rookie of the Year Award goes to Zander Chown, who is the heir apparent to the legacy of MTA stars Mike Hill, Nick Mathieu, and Peter Mao.

The Boys finished with a 6-6 regular season record and advanced to the playoffs once again. They registered a 9-3 victory over Cony before they succumbed to powerhouse Brunswick in the quarter finals.

Along the way, the Eagles had several team and individual highlights. After starting out at 5-0 (with games against East Cupcake U and the Sisters of the Poor), the Eagles came back to earth in the second part of the season. Nevertheless, they battled back and showed they belonged on the field against some of the iron of the league. Their biggest win of the year came against the eventual #4 seed Messalonskee with a convincing 10-5 shellacking.

Connor Brown, who has been a scoring machine the last two years, scored an amazing 38 goals while teams were focusing on stopping him. When Connor was doubled team, he immediately recognized the situation and dished off to Matt Lawrence, Keegan Brown, and Eli Schoenberg, all of whom frequently made the opposition pay.

Midfielders rarely get the credit they deserve. They are the workhorses who traverse the entire length of the field and have to be proficient both offensively and defensively. Zach Caoette, Owen Kelly, Hayden Libby were the prototypical midfielders for the Eagles.

The Eagles were young on defense, but they were very impressive. Sophomore Dan Jackson backboned the defense in goal and showed talent, judgment, and leadership between the pipes. It was senior Ryan Mello's first year playing lacrosse, so he was expected to have a steep learning curve. But Ryan is an elite athlete, and by the end of the year he looked like a life-long laxer combining aggressive defense, hard hits, speed on transitions, and good ball handling skills. Not to mention all the intangibles he brings to the table. Sophomores Gabe Crowley, Elias Linkel along with freshmen Tre Saucier and Brian Cobb all displayed defensive prowess beyond their years. The future looks bright for the defense and the Eagles as a whole.

At the recent MTA Awards night, Connor Brown was named Outstanding Senior and Sean Roberts was named winner of the Coaches Award. I have some awards of my own to pass out. These awards are given out in the spirit of good humour (hopefully) and levity. If you did not receive an award, go ahead and give yourself one, because you deserve it. If you let me know what award you deserve, I will publish it. And when it's published on www.mtasports.com, you know it's true.

Award Winner
Brothers Award Like Hank Aaron and his brother Tommy, who combined for 768 career home runs (Hank who hit 755, and Tommy who hit 13), Keegan Brown is on the underside of the Brown brothers total with Connor collecting 88 goals and Keegan just 6. But take heart Keegan, because Connor only had 3 goals after his sophomore season and you have 6. So Connor, gloat while you can, cuz' Keegan's coming after you.
Get out of my face (off area) Award goes to Riley Morin who showed a special knack for controlling the ball in this very important aspect of the game.
Special Sauce Award goes to Tre Saucier
You're Promoted Award goes to Jake Sargent who, based on his stalwart play at both ends of the field, we are promoting to Jake Brigadier General
Speak softly, but carry a big long stick Award goes to Sean Roberts. Pretty sure Teddy Rosevelt never played lacrosse, but he would have embraced Sean's approach to the game ( and everything else). Sean combines an unusual combination of athleticism, confidence, defensive know how, stick-handling skills, and his famous catapult like shot.
Rookie of the Year Award goes to Eli Schoenberg, a freshman who has the inborn instincts to do the little things that make you a complete player as well as the confidence to be a game changer when the situation calls for it. He should supply plenty of offense in the future.

2018 Girls Tennis Season Wrap Up

Girls 2018 Tennis team
Girls 2018 Tennis team

There is no sugar coating it, the Girls had a rough season when you look at their record. But high school sports are about more than wins and losses. Coach Bohlin instilled many of life's lessons on her team. Each girl improved over the course of the season and hopefully, the seniors will become lifetime players and the underclassmen will come back to experience a more positive outcome next year.

Captains Meriwether Stockford and Ryley Leech provided plenty of senior leadership throughout the season. Outside of action on the court , the high light for me was when Meriwether's brother Griffin Stockford III showed up to watch his sister on Senior Day. He chuckled when I mentioned how I had added 30% to his lifetime income by appending the three sticks after his name. Ryley Leech is an elite soccer player and her athleticism showed on the tennis court. She was a picture of grace and power.

Lizzy Garver, another multi-talented senior, was always a joy to watch, displayed the same panache to her game as she did in her fashion designs. Katie Trebilcock frequently teamed up with her sister Grace in Doubles action to play many spirited games. Senior newbie Chloe Warren signed up for her first year at the net and rapidly showed her competitiveness by moving up to play in the #2 and #3 Singles position.

Let's not forget our transfer students. We had Dana Coliban from Ukraine and Yama Humenyak from Moldava . These girls have such poise and intelligence. Their English is flawless and they both speak three other languages. Having never played tenniis before, the improved greatly over the course of the season

The Eagles were young and had several sophomores who showed they will be ready to fill the void left by the departing seniors. Riley Robertson, Olivia Justice, Emma Soule, and old friend Kaitlyn Doughty give the Eagles a promising future.

June 7, 2018 - Eagles Blank Eddies 9-0 in Qtr Finals

Hunter Lohr applies the sweep tag thwart the stolen base attempt

The top three batters in the Eagles line up, Hunter Lohr, Nick Merrill, and Austin Damon, combined for six hits, including five doubles in the sixth and seventh innings to put away what had been a close game. Garrett Moody wiggled out of a couple tight situations in the early going, but settled down before yielding to Hunter Lohr and Cam Grant who shut the door on the Eddies. The Eagles advance to the semi-finals where they will play Oxford Hills on Saturday at 1:00.

The game started ominously for the Eagles. After they were retired in the top half of the first inning, Garrett Moody took to the mound. The Eddies lead off batters stroked a couple of singles and Eddy slugger Grant Hartley walked to load the bases with one out. Garrett had his work cut out for him and he responded with a couple of Ks to get out of the inning without allowing a run. Garrett started the second inning with another K, his third in a row. But he hit the next batter and the Eddies #9 hitter, Jason Taylor, reached on an error. But again, Garrett worked his magic. The Eagles just missed completing a 6-4-3 double play, so Garrett punched out the next batter to strand two more runners. Garrett cruised through innings 3 and 4 with the only runner to reach being gunned down by the strong arm of Nate Leslie and nice tag by Hunter Lohr

Meanwhile, the Eagle bats were on stand-by through the first five innings. Cam Grant had the only hit with an infield single up the middle in the fourth. Nate Leslie scorched a long drive to left in the fifth, but the Eddies Jake Arel, running full speed toward the fence made a sensational catch with a lunge at at the end to deny Nate of extra bases.

In the bottom of the fifth, the Eddies touched Garret for two consecutive singles. After a sacrifice bunt moved the runners up to second and third, Coach Chase went to his bull pen. Hunter Lohr came in throwing smoke. The Eddies Jake Arel tried a (suicide?) squeeze bunt and he popped it up high enough for Eagles first base man, Devin Tobin, to catch it and fire to Cam Grant on third to easily complete the double play and end the inning with no harm.

The Eagles immediately took advantage of the Eddies failure to execute. Hunter Lohr led off and jumped on the first offering by Eddies hurler Ethan Brown with a stinging line shot double down the left field line. Nick Merrill found himself in an 0-2 hole, but he blasted the next pitch to deep center field that landed well over the center fielder's head and bounced over the fence for a ground rule double and an RBI. Austin Damon drilled a hard grounder just inside the third base line that plated Nick with Austin landing on second for the third consecutive double. Cam Grant reached on an error with Austin taking third. Kyle Brennan collected an RBI when he reached on a fielder's choice. Then the Eagles played a little small ball. Devin Tobin moved the runners up with a sacrifice bunt and Nate Leslie drove in a run with another sacrifice bunt. The inning ended when Garrett Moody fanned, but the Eagles led 4-0.

In the bottom of the sixth, Hunter Lohr was untouchable (and entertaining). He had eleven swings and misses in the inning striking out the side after walking Grant Hartley on a 3-2 pitch. Not quite an immaculate inning, but pretty impressive.

In the top of the seventh for the Eagles, it was, as Yogi would say, "deja vu all over again". Hunter Lohr led off with another double. This time it was a solid line drive to right center. Nick Merrill scalded a shot down the left field line to drive in Hunter with his second double of the game. Austin Damon picked up his second hit of the game with a single up the middle. Nick held at third, but Austin smartly went to second on the throw home. The Eddies tried to nail Austin, but the throw ended up in centerfield and Nick scored and Austin went to third. Cam Grant reached on a fielders choice and picked up an RBI when Austin's head-first slide beat the throw home on a close play. Kyle Brennan singled to deep short and Nate Leslie drew a walk before Dakota Lopez put an exclamation point (!) on the win with a two-run, line-drive double to deep left.

Hunter Lohr started the seventh with a K, but when he walked the next batter, Coach Chase went to fireballer Cam Grant. Cam proved the move to be brilliant when he induced two lazy fly balls to end the game.

It was the Eagles ninth straight win. The Eagles did what they needed to do to win. They played solid defense, they had timely hitting, the pitchers made the tough pitches when the Eddies threatened, and they ran the bases intelligently. It was a well-deserved win and it has to have instilled a new level of confidence for their next game. Go Eagles.

May 23, 2018 - Boys, Girls Romp at Freshman Invitational

Both the Boys and Girls freshman teams registered convincing victories at the Waterville Freshman Invitational. Nineteen athletes (10 Boys and 9 Girls) participated and, remarkably, every single athlete scored points for the team. That's a winning formula! The Boys had 7 individual first place finishes and five second place finishes. The Girls had 5 individual first place finishes and four second place finishes (out of 16 individual events). The Girls also had a first place finish in the 4 x 400 to put an explanation point on the meet.

BOYS

With 7 first place finishes, where does one start? Let's start with Owen Yabsira. Owen won the 110 Meter Hurdles to start the meet and then added a win in the 300 Meter Hurdles. In the interim, he visited the High Jump pit where he picked up a 2nd place medal. In the 100 Meter Dash, Joshua Huntsman was nosed out of first place by .01 seconds to finish second. Josh exacted his retribution with a first place finish in the 200 Meter Dash. Josh then flexed his muscles in the Shot Put with a heave of 33-03.50 that garnered him first place honors.

Maddie won the 100 and set a new PR dipping under 14 seconds for the first time. She finished 2nd in the 200 and the Long Jump and then went to the Pole Vault pit where she placed 5th. Just another day at the office. Emelia Barker picked up a point with a 6th place finish in the Long Jump a well as running a new PR in the 100.

Right from the get-go, you had the sense that this game would be a doozie. It took all of 36 seconds for the Eagles to get on the board. Shannon Harty circled in front and hit a trailing Fiona Hoang on the Eagles bread-and-butter play to take a 1-0 lead. Just over a minute later, Erin Harty, moving left to right, made it 2-0. Were the Eagles going to run away with this game? Not so fast. Boothbay called a timeout. Whatever was said had an immediate effect as the Seahawks Hannah (Coca) Cola and Chloe Arsenault both scored to tie the game 2-2. From that point forward the teams traded goals. there were 9 ties and 10 lead changes with neither team gaining more than a 1 goal lead until the Eagles went up 12-10 with 10 minutes left in the game.

Ten seconds after the Seahawks tied the score, Casi Perow came up with a big save when she rejected a bouncer. A minute later Shannon Harty restored the Eagles lead when she placed her shot perfectly in the far upper corner. The Seahawks Sydney Meader countered when she finished a coast-to-coast jaunt. Fiona Hoang, disregarding any speed bumps along the way, threaded her way through traffic to make in 4-3, but a mere 8 seconds late, the Seahawks Jackie McLoon tied the game again. It was 4-4 just eight minutes into the game. The teams were scoring at a goal a minute pace. There was a scoring lull that lasted 3-1/2 minutes before scoring resumed with the teams combining for 5 goals in over the next 2-1/2 minutes. The Seahawks grabbed their first lead of the game, 5-4, on a Sydney Meader score. It took the Eagles Jess Cloutier all of 14 seconds to even the score again on a power drive and hard shot that hit the far post and caromed in. The Seahawks McLoon struck again to temporarily give Boothbay a 6-5 lead. The Eagles countered when Fiona Hoang converted a pass from Erin Harty and her shot found the upper right corner to tie the game yet again. At 11:06, Boothbay's Chloe Arsenault gave the Seahawks a 7-6 lead. It would be the last lead the Seahawks would enjoy.

Casi Perow stretches to make the save

There was another small hiatus in the scoring until the 7:47 mark when Fiona Hoang turned on her jets and flew in below the radar to tie the game at 7-7. Seconds later, Casi Perow shut down a Seahawk attacker with a big stuff on a breakaway. The Eagles took the lead when Madeline Daulerio, positioned perfectly ten feet off the far pipe on the weak side, cut to the net and Shannon Harty hit her with a crisp pass to give the Eagles an 8-7 lead. Take a deep breath here! Action slowed down a tad until the Seahawks tied the game with 2:40 left in the half.

The second half started out at the same frenetic pace as the first half. Forty-five seconds in, speedy Reese Turcotte moved up from her defensive position, darted in, and her low shot beat Seahawks goalie Page Brown. The score see-sawed back and forth. The Seahawks Hannah Cole scored on two end-to-end rushes sandwiched around a Fiona Hoang goal. The score was 10-10 with 16:49 left. The fast action continued, but both goalies stepped with a series of big saves. Casi Perow stuffed a Seahawk shooter on a penalty shot and Page Brown returned the favor in the Seahawks net when she stopped a Jess Cloutier penalty shot. At 12:43, Jess Cloutier spied Erin Harty in front and sent a pass her way. Erin caught the pass, pirouetted, and scored to give the Eagles an 11-10 lead, a lead they would not relinquish. Shannon Harty scored an insurance goal at 10:08 to extend the Eagles lead to 12-10.

Boothbay called a timeout, but there was no magic in the coach's words this time. The Eagles defense stiffened and forced several shots wide while the offense was content to control the ball and run out the clock. Casi Perow ended up with 14 saves and Boothbay's Page had 8 saves.
