Petrie making ‘bittersweet’ move from Lisbon to Mt. Ararat

Julie Petrie is switching schools for the winter season, but she will still be coaching the Lisbon field hockey team in the fall.

After eight years leading the varsity girls basketball program at Lisbon High School, Julie Petrie is sliding over into the same position at Mt. Ararat High School in Topsham, where she is a Health and Physical Education teacher.

Petrie said the change “helps cut down the travel time and more convenient to be able to spend more time with my husband and twin daughters, and a new challenge and opportunity to grow as a coach.”

Petrie spent 11 years with the Greyhounds, including the least eight as head coach. Lisbon made the playoffs twice during her head-coaching tenure, including a Class C West postseason berth in 2012 and a Class B South berth in 2017.

“Obviously every team wants to win as many games as possible and compete deep into the playoffs,” Petrie said. “Being a small school competing at the Class B level has presented challenges.”

She takes over an Eagles program that made it into the Class A South playoffs last year, their first postseason berth since 2015. The position opened up following former coach Andy Morris’ resignation.
