...More than 1,000 people attended a candlelight vigil Friday night on the Gardiner Area High School soccer field to honor the 16-year-old student who died from injuries sustained in a crash Thursday morning, according to an Augusta newspaper.

Tabytha Hembree of Pittston, who was played goalie on the Gardiner girls soccer team, was remembered as “talented, athletic, smart and strong,” the Kennebec Journal reported.

“Tonight is certainly a symbol of the strength this community has for each other,” Principal Chad Kempton told the crowd, the paper said. “She was such a well-rounded, positive young lady, and she was the whole package.” ... -in-crash/

For Gardiner girls soccer, an inspired performance in the face of tragedy
Leavitt blanks Tigers, but final score means very little.

...“It was tough, but I think we pulled together as a team for Taby,” said Perry, a classmate of Hembree’s. “We gave it all we got, and she was with us the whole way there.”

After a difficult and emotional five days, the play of Perry and the rest of the Tigers was just what the girls soccer community needed.

“It took us a while to start getting back into the swing of things, with just the new mindset,” senior captain Logan Granholm said. “But I feel like once we got out there and we started playing the game, everything just started to fall into place again. Any emotions we were feeling we were just putting out on the field.” ... f-tragedy/
