After 23 years, Townsend steps away from soccer sideline

... Ed Hastings, who was the athletic director at Georges Valley from 2003-11, said Townsend’s resignation “will be a big loss” in the community.

“He’s just a steadfast individual,” said Hastings. “Other than the heyday of Sam [Pendleton] in terms of Thomaston when it was just SAD 50, he’s a fixture and he’ll be very difficult to replace The time he’s committed while trying to run a business had to have had an impact.”

Townsend also ran the annual Mariner (formerly Buccaneer) girls soccer play day every year in late August prior to the start of the regular season, where teams as far as Presque Isle came to participate in.

“He’s well known and very highly respected in the state,” said Hastings. “He was a big part of Georges Valley and then he made the crossover with Oceanside and he’ll be difficult to replace.”
