PPH Girls’ Runner of the Year: Falmouth's Sofie Matson

...And even though Taylor Swift or the Shangri-Las would seem like appropriate artists, Matson prefers band music. She’s an accomplished pianist who plays clarinet in the Portland Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Portland Youth Wind Ensemble, and last spring was named outstanding jazz soloist in the state’s Middle School Instrumental Jazz Festival.

And she runs well, too.

In her first taste of high school competition, Matson was most certainly the leader of Maine’s pack. She opened the season with a victory in the Southern Maine Classic in Gorham and kept on winning, right through the Class A South regional (53-second gap on a field of 121) and the state championships (37-second gap on a field of 117).

Not until the New England championships, where she was 10th, or the Foot Locker Northeast Regional, where she placed 14th, did she have serious competition. In both cases, she was the first Maine girl to finish.
