PPH Boys’ Runner of the Year: Luke Laverdiere
Luke Laverdiere of Yarmouth pushed himself despite a lack of challengers.

...The thing to remember about Laverdiere’s senior season and second straight state championship is he held nothing back in the state meet, sprinting toward and tumbling across the finish line despite a lead of more than a minute over a field of 110. His time of 15:43.89 was barely a half-second behind the state meet record at Twin Brook, set by Will Geoghegan of Brunswick (15:43.37) in 2009.

Of course, Geoghegan had been locked in a battle with Nate Hathaway of Scarborough, who finished in 15:46. The closest pursuer to Laverdiere was Wells senior Mitch Libby, who pulled in at 16:47.

“His performance at the state meet was one of the best performances I’ve seen,” said Yarmouth Coach John Rogers. “At the end he didn’t quite get the goals he wanted, but he still had one of the best years of any distance runner at the high school level in the state of Maine.”
