CM Indoor track and field preview
Messalonskee, Waterville poised for KVAC repeat

...The Messalonskee coach has nearly all his top athletes back on the girls track team — the defending Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class A champions — who are not only back to defend their crown, but to also make noise at the Class A meet in February.

“This is what you hope for as a coach,” Holman said. “You hope for a group of kids on one side that are this talented. We’re spread out very well.”

Not only is Messalonskee stocked with talent, it’s young talent as well. Sophomore Emma Concaugh is the defending KVAC champion in the 800-meter run and the triple jump. Senior Jacey Richards and junior Markiana Hewett finished third and fourth, respectively, in the 55-meter hurdles. That’s just a snippet of the talent returning to Messalonskee.

PPH Indoor track: 10 teams to watch
Scarborough girls and boys could lead the pack again this winter in Class A.

GIRLS
1. Scarborough: The defending Class A champs bring back eight who scored at the state meet, including sophomore Emily Labbe (26 points). She’s joined by sophomore scorers Anna Gardner (pole vault) and Madison Marinko (long jump, hurdles). Add senior Bethany Sholl, who won the 2-mile (11:40.31), and the Red Storm should be tough to beat.
2. Cheverus:
3. Greely:
4. York:
5. Westbrook:

BOYS

1. Scarborough:
2. Westbrook: With defending long jump champion Dominic Creenan, who scored in three events last year, the Class A runner-up should be high on the leaderboard this winter. The senior scored 17 of Westbrook’s 46 points last season. The Blazes also return senior Brandt Herbert, who took fourth in the long jump (20-6).
3. Deering:
4. Greely:
5. York:

PPH Indoor track preview: What makes for a team dynasty?
Successful coaches weigh in on the elements that make for a champion year after year.

...Winning multiple state titles in track and field is a complicated puzzle that requires more than large rosters or individual state champions, although both are obvious advantages.

What makes a track and field dynasty in Maine? Coaches who have won multiple titles say it comes down to identifying talent, finding a different approach when needed and earning the athletes’ trust.

Folan, whose girls’ teams won 13 titles in 18 years from 1991 to 2008, believes school pride is more important than raw talent.

Last year Greely won the state meet by nine points without an individual champion. If the Rangers don’t win this season, Folan said they’ll be close.

“We always tell the kids: ‘As long as you gave it your best effort, as long as you’re proud of that,'” Folan said. “We talk about improvement, we talk about effort. We don’t talk about scores. We just don’t do it.”
