Congrats State Qualifiers / States

Postby kvachoopsfan » Sat Oct 21, 2017 9:19 pm

It was a great day to run and I'd like to say congrats to all the athletes that ran today. The Northern Regional was great to watch and to see so many giving 100% effort for their teams and schools. It is awesome to see the teams from The County. Many of us in the central maine region haven't seen their athletes and they were great. I was there to watch the class B races and congrats to the Caribou girls on the championship. Great pack of runners at the top. The boys race proves how important every point and every runner is to a team. Congrats Hermon (80pts) on a championship that was hard fought. Followed by Hermon was MDI and Waterville tied with 84pts and bringing the 6th runner into effect. Showing why all runners are important. Closely following these 3 teams was Caribou with 86pts. A truly great team race that no one knew how it would finish. I would also like to congratulate Waterville junior Nick Dall in winning what I believe is his 3rd regional championship. Congratulations also to Winslow freshman Olivia Tiner for her championship victory and leading the Winslow team in qualifying for the state meet. In a town that pushes football, field hockey and soccer you girls are amazing. Way to go. Congrats to everyone in the toughest sport around. You all are an inspiration us.

Cross-country state titles, New England berths at stake Saturday

Northern Maine’s top cross-country runners and teams head downstate Saturday in hopes of getting one more chance to compete on their home turf this season.

The state championship meet is set for the Twin Brook Recreation Area in Cumberland with the Class C races at 11 a.m. (girls) and 11:35 a.m. (boys), Class A at 12:30 p.m. (girls) and 1:05 p.m. (boys) and Class B at 2 p.m. (girls) and 2:35 p.m. (boys).

Top performers at states will represent Maine at the New England championships, this year scheduled for Nov. 11 at the Troy Howard Middle School in Belfast. That course hosts the annual Northern Maine regional meet as well as the state’s largest cross country event, the Maine Cross Country Festival of Champions, each October.

Cross country: It will be slippery slopes at Twin Brook for the state meet on Saturday
Luke Laverdiere of Yarmouth and Sofie Matson of Falmouth put their unbeaten seasons on the line Saturday.


Had two fewer students enrolled at Greely High in Cumberland, cross country coach David Dowling likely would be anticipating another Class B state title or two for the Rangers this weekend on their home course at Twin Brook Recreation Area.

Instead the Rangers are one student over the cutoff mark of 655 and competing for a top- three finish in a deep Class A pool for the boys’ and girls’ championship races Saturday.

“Ah, well,” Dowling said. “Life is not always easy street.”

Orono Boys, Orono Girls and Camden Hills Win State Cross Country Meet Titles

CUMBERLAND, MAINE (WABI) - The state cross country meet held in Cumberland this year. A big day for Orono boys and girls teams as they both did well enough to claim the class C state titles. The girls won by one point over Maranacook. Camille Kohtala of Orono finished runner up individually. So did Deer Isle-Stonington's Brendan Penfold.

Camden Hills, Orono, Yarmouth girls claim cross-country state titles

...he Class C team competition couldn’t have been closer, with Orono edging second-place Maranacook of Readfield by a single point, 71-72, and 2016 state champion George Stevens Academy of Blue Hill (79) and Maine Coast Waldorf School of Freeport (88) also close behind.

Junior Camille Kohtala finished second to pace the champion Red Riots, trailing only race winner Olivia Reynolds of Maine Coast Waldorf (20:13.10).

But Kohtala edged GSA’s Eliza Broughton by 0.16 second, and while it wasn’t known at the time that ultimately constituted the extra point Orono needed to win the team title — had the Red Riots and Maranacook finished tied in the scoring, Maranacook would have won the sixth-place tiebreaker.

Orono freshman Erin Gerbi finished fourth overall, with senior Liza Gallandt (14th), freshman Julia White (25th) and senior Kaili Gaetjen (27th) completing the Red Riots’ scorers.

Orono, Falmouth, Lincoln Academy win boys XC state titles

...Waynflete junior Henry Spritz was the individual winner in 17 minutes, 1.67 seconds, 6.35 seconds ahead of second-place Brendan Penfold (17:08.02), a senior from Deer Isle-Stonington.

Junior Jonathan Steelman finished fourth to pace the victorious Orono scoring pack, followed by seniors Matt Keresy (ninth), Jonny Spencer (10th) and Sam Holt (15th) and sophomore Tucker Ellis (30th).

Among the other top-10 finishers in the race were Calais senior Addison Coty (fifth) and Jonesport-Beals junior Evan Merchant (ninth).

Lincoln Academy placed all of its five scoring runners among the top 21 overall to cruise to victory in Class B.

Laverdiere ties record as state cross country titles handed out

... “I didn’t know where I’d be at the end,” Laverdiere said. “And I saw the clock and was like, “Whoa that’s really close.”

Aware of the record at Twin Brook, Laverdiere took the lead early and didn’t look back. As he crossed the line, he still wasn’t sure what his official time was. Turns out, he was more than close — he was right on it. His finishing time of 15:43 tied the record set by Will Geohegan of Brunswick in 2009.


That finish was among a handful of exciting moments during the six state title races Saturday, which also featured freshmen winners in two of the three girls’ races.

Perhaps the best race of the day, though, was in Class C boys, a race that started with a large pack of top runners, including Henry Spritz of Waynflete, Brendan Penfold of Deer Isle and Troy Hendricks of Sacopee Valley.
