WATERBORO, Maine — Forty-two minutes.

That’s how long it took the Marshwood High School girls lacrosse team to solve top-seeded Massabesic — and its own mistakes — and score a goal in the Class A South championship game Wednesday.

By that time, it was far too late to make a difference.

The second-seeded Hawks (11-4) saw their season end with a 6-2 loss, the second straight year they’ve been dismissed by the Mustangs in the regional final.

“I think the nerves got into some of the younger kids,” said Marshwood coach Bernie Marvin, “and also the older kids, thinking it might be their last game. Pretty much everyone except Skyler.”

If there was a bright spot Wednesday, it was the play of junior goalie Skyler Amsden, who was credited with 10 saves. Five of those came on free-position chances, a series of stops that kept the game from getting out of hand.

“Amazing,” said senior midfielder Reagan Nichols. “She kept it from getting away. She kept us in it.”

“She’s a fantastic goalie,” said Massabesic coach Brooks Bowen. “She covers a pretty big goal area and she’s not very big. I don’t know how many saves she had, but there were a lot.”

At the other end, Lydia Wasina only had to make two saves for the Mustangs (15-0), who will play North champion Messalonskee on Saturday for the state title at Fitzpatrick Stadium in Portland (3:30 p.m.).

Marshwood did not score until freshman Olivia Melton received the ball in front and shot successfully while getting nudged to the ground to make it 6-1 with 7:11 left in the game. Marin Smith added a free-position goal in the final minute but that was it.

“It is a timed game,” said Marvin, “and time ran out.”

The end wasn’t the problem for the Hawks. The problem was the beginning.

The opening 15 minutes were a repeating loop of forced passes and missed catches, resulting in transition rushes the Mustangs took to the other end of the field.

Morgan Pike opened the scoring with a free-position goal just 1:41 in and Maddie Drain scored the first of her three goals five minutes later. The Hawks won their share of draw controls but were unable to produce anything but turnovers, along with the occasional off-target shot.

“It’s a game of momentum, and when it’s on your side, you feel pretty good,” said Bowen.

Goals by Josie Ring and Drain had the Hawks facing a 4-0 hole when they began to put together some better offensive possessions in the final 10 minutes of the half.

But neither Smith nor Nichols could convert free-position chances, and another long series ended when Drain jumped the passing route like a football cornerback and sped away with the ball upfield.

“We were trying to get our cutters going,” said Marvin. “You’re going to have turnovers and I can appreciate that, but they were very untimely turnovers.”

It was 5-0 at the break and the reason the score wasn’t worse was Amsden, a junior, who foiled three free-position chances. To start the second half, she denied another good bid by Skylar Renaud.

“Outstanding,” said Marvin. “She had a fantastic game.”

The loss marks the end of the careers for Marshwood seniors like Nichols, Paige Singer, Luci Albers, who had featured roles on the state championship team of 2015. Nichols and Albers will play next year at AIC and Southern New Hampshire, respectively.

But this journey stopped two steps short of 2015′s endpoint and bookended a season sweep at the hands of the Mustangs, who won 9-3 back in April.

“Really hard start,” said Nichols. “We were nervous and we wanted to see what they were like, because we hadn’t seen them since the beginning of the season.

“We just had to stop turning it over, get our heads straight and play.”

Hawks Embracing Underdog Role Entering Regional Final

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — In recent years, the almost annual battle between girls lacrosse teams from Marshwood High School and Massabesic has been a highlight of the Class A tournament.

Four times since 2012, the two programs have met in the regional championship or semifinals, with those four games being decided by a total of seven goals.

This year, there was little doubt that top-seeded Massabesic (14-0) would claim a spot in the Class A South final, which it did after running the table in the regular season, and then outclassing its quarterfinal and semifinal opponents.

But the second-seeded Hawks (11-3) are there, too, after two months of changing things on the fly.

“The girls have been working incredibly hard in games and practices,” said Marshwood coach Bernie Marvin. “With the new roles that a lot of these kids have, and the toughness and resilience they’ve shown, I’m very impressed.”

The two June rivals will meet for the fifth time in six postseasons in the Class A South championship Wednesday (5:30 p.m.) at the Massabesic turf field in Waterboro. The winner advances to Saturday’s state championship game at Fitzpatrick Stadium to take on either Messalonskee or Windham.

The Hawks, who were undermanned when they lost to Massabesic, 9-3, in the first week of the season back in April, acknowledge they’re the underdogs, with the smaller margin for error against a team that’s averaging 12.8 goals a game behind standout players like Maddie Drain.

“We have to come out strong,” said Marvin. “We can’t get behind to these guys, can’t have unforced turnovers. For us it’s going to be the draws and the ground balls. We’ve got to come up with our fair share.”

Where the Hawks have been good is defensively (5.0 goals per game allowed), despite returning just one starter in junior Chloe Shields. Isabelle Ury, Celine Lawrence and Makenna Janes have stepped into starting roles, and Skyler Amsden (69 percent saves) has been an asset in net.

“We’re a defense-first type of team,” said Marvin, “and these girls are playing very well.”

The midfield is also a strength, behind senior captains Reagan Nichols (31 goals, 52 points), Luci Albers (24 goals, 42 points) and converted defender Paige Singer (28 points). Nichols and Albers are continuing their careers at Division II colleges at AIC and SNHU, respectively.

It’s the attack that’s been the biggest work in progress. Minus last year’s leading scorer, Hannah Costin, who left the team for school-related issues last month, it’s been practically a brand-new group from what began the season.

Marin Smith (29-10-39) has led the way after overcoming an early-season injury. Zoe Janetos also missed games early, and two freshmen, Ruby Albers and Olivia Melton, have seen their roles increase.

The Hawks were slated to practice at Portsmouth High School on Tuesday night to simulate the turf they’ll be on Wednesday.

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Bernie Marvin has developed a blueprint on how to beat Thornton Academy throughout the years.

It worked again for his Marshwood High School girls lacrosse team.

With discipline and junior goalie Skyler Amsden as the backbone, No. 2 Marshwood methodically plotted its way to a third straight Southern Maine Class A championship berth with a 4-3 victory over the third-seeded Golden Trojans in Saturday afternoon’s regional semifinal.

“Turnovers against a team like this will kill you. When you play a team like this, it’s about limiting your mistakes and not trying to do anything fancy,” Marvin said. “While we didn’t play flawless, they played to about as close to flawless as they could.”

The game mirrored the 2015 regional semifinal when Marshwood won, 4-2, on its way to winning the Class A championship. The Hawks gained home-field advantage for this year’s matchup with a 7-5 victory over Thornton in last week’s regular season finale.

“They stuck to the game plan, because we score a lot of goals,” Marvin said. “But against a team like this, if you get running they’ll kill you. They have a good goalie and are well coached and we just couldn’t make mistakes, and we didn’t.”

Thornton’s Amanda Cyr sliced Marshwood’s lead to 4-3 with 45.6 seconds remaining, but Marin Smith won the ensuing draw and Paige Singer picked up the ground ball, allowing the Hawks to milk the rest of the clock.

Marshwood (11-3) advanced to Wednesday’s regional championship, where it meet top-seeded Massabesic (13-0) for the second straight year. Massabesic beat No. 5 Gorham, 4-1, on Saturday to advance.

“Thornton is a great defensive team, but we also pride ourselves on defense and we knew whoever made the least amount of mistakes would win, and whoever recovered faster from their mistakes would win,” Singer said. “I think that’s why we won the game today.”

There were still 25 minutes left to be played, but Marshwood may have won the game in the first half after Zoe Janetos beat Thornton goalie Dana Sirois nearly nine minutes into the game to give the Hawks a 1-0 lead.

Thornton (10-4) controlled possession for the majority of the opening half, but the Hawks made four steals deep in their own end. Amsden — who boasts a regional best save percentage of 69 percent — made five of her seven saves in the first half, including three off free position shots.

“We’re known to feel it out in the first half, maybe make some mistakes and comeback out in the second half,” Amsden said, “but we were ready for this game. I think I have the best defense in the state. It’s hard for teams to get off uncontested shots.”

Singer scored off a free-position shot with 2.6 seconds left in the first half to give Marshwood a 2-0 halftime lead.

“Our defense played a ridiculously good first half,” Singer said. “Skyler made a great save, I got it in the clear and I knew we had a few seconds left and I had the best shot.”

“Last time we played them, the game was pretty much identical,” Thornton coach Craig Agreste said. “They capitalized on opportunities and we just weren’t able to. Credit to them. We had good looks, they made great saves and great defensive plays.”

After Alana Pettway put Thornton on the board two minutes into the second half, Reagan Nichols countered to give Marshwod a 3-1 lead. Cyr cut the deficit to 3-2 with 16:11 remaining.

The Hawks spread the field in an effort to chew time off the clock, and Lucy Albers found a hole and charged the ball past Spirois to give Marshwood a 4-2 cushion with 4:25 left on the clock.

“I knew I wanted that goal and I knew we needed it,” Albers said. “I was in a good position and I knew this was going to be it. I felt good about it.”

And yet another Thornton roadblock has been dodged.

“We really worked on our defense and the girls followed the plan,” Marvin said. “I thought the midfielders did a good job of dropping back on their cuts — and then we’ve got Skyler.”

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — With a two-goal lead nearing the end of the first half, the Marshwood High School girls lacrosse team was mired in a closer game than it probably expected in its Class A South quarterfinal with South Portland. It was struggling to get breathing room on the Red Riots.

The distance finally came in the last two minutes of the half, as the Hawks went on a scoring barrage and upped their lead to six goals. From there, No. 2 Marshwood cruised to a 15-4 victory over No. 7 South Portland (5-8).

“We started to work together and got our passing sequences together,” said Marshwood junior Marin Smith. “When we played our lacrosse, passed and moved it, we are able to get some distance between us and them.”

The Hawks (10-3) advance to the Class A south semifinals and will host No. 3 Thornton (10-3) on Saturday (1 p.m.). Marshwood defeated the Golden Trojans, 7-5, a week ago.

“Thornton will be tough,” said Marshwood coach Bernie Marvin. “They are very athletic and well coached. Over the last five years, it has been a one or two goal game either way. We played them last week, which will make it tougher.”

As the first half approached a close, Marshwood held a 5-3 lead but were beginning to press looking for breathing room. Smith scored with 1:54 left, giving the Hawks a 6-3 lead.

“We were standing around a bit,” said Marvin. “They called a timeout after our sixth goal and that gave us a chance to talk about our need to get our feet moving and play our game. The girls played outstanding after that.”

Olivia Melton upped the lead to 7-3 a minute later, and 28 seconds after that, Smith weaved in front of the goal and scored off a bounce making it 8-3. With five seconds left, Luci Albers scored on a transition give-and-go with Smith to give the Hawks a 9-3 lead.

The run continued into the second, as Marshwood scored the first four goals and built a 13-3 advantage. South Portland scored its first goal in 20 minutes of playing time, off the stick of Paige Felming, to cut the Hawk lead to 13-4 at 15:01 of the second.

“We struggled holding onto the ball,” said South Portland coach Leslie Dyer. “(Marshwood) is the only team in our league that plays with a seven-man zone and we struggled getting into the eight.”

Marshwood is without key player, Hannah Costin, who was recently dismissed from the team for disciplinary reasons.

“She has been off the team for four games,” said Marvin. “A lot of girls have stepped up, showing poise and leadership in roles they haven’t normally had.”

Smith scored the last two goals. She led all scorers with six. Luci Albers had four, while Paige Singer and Olivia Melton each had a pair. Singer chipped in with eight ground balls and Albers added another seven. Reagan Nichols and Smith had three helpers.

Sports Shorts: Three Marshwood Graduates: Matt Brenner, Max McCoomb and Noah McDaniel, Make All-GNAC Baseball Team

May 11, 2017

Matt Brenner, who captained Suffolk to a third straight Great Northeast Athletic Conference title, is one of three former Marshwood High School standouts named to All-GNAC All-Star teams.

Brenner, a senior catcher from Eliot, Maine, sits among his team’s top three in every statistically category, hitting .344 (45-for-131) on the year to go along with nine doubles, four triples and a pair of home runs. He scored 35 runs on the season, while driving in a team-best 33.

Suffolk (25-13) will be in the NCAA Division III tournament, which begins next week.

Brenner played a key role in helping the Suffolk win its third straight GNAC playoff championship.

In Sunday’s 1-0 championship win over Johnson & Wales, Brenner scored the game-winning run. He led off the bottom of the seventh with a single, moved to second on a groundout and scored on a base hit.

To reach the final, Suffolk beat Lasell, 15-8, in the quarters and Johnson & Wales, 11-1, in the semis. Brenner, who was named to the all-tournament team, was 4 for 5 with five RBIs in the Lasell win, and 1 for 4 with an RBI and two runs in the win in the semis.

St. Joseph’s senior shortstop Max McCoomb joined his former Marshwood teammate on the first team. The South Berwick, Maine, native batted. 467 (43-for-92) with 35 runs, nine doubles, three triples, a home run, 29 RBIs and four stolen bases despite missing 12 games due to an injury.

The four-year starting shortstop finishes his NCAA career with a .349 (178-for-510) batting average with 117 runs, 28 doubles, four triples, three homers, 69 RBIs and 23 stolen bases in 146 games.

Teammate Noah McDaniel was picked for the third team. The sophomore outfielder/infielder from Eliot, Maine, hit .383 (41-for-107) with 25 runs, five doubles, a homer, 24 RBIs and three stolen bases as a first-year starter for the Monks (31-8).

Today, we reveal the nominees for the 2016-17 winter season, which features 98 athletes up for nine awards.

Here’s how it works. Each athlete nominated for a Seacoast All-Star Sports Award has had a letter shipped to their school’s athletics department.

Marshwood Track Highlights

Noble’s Tasker Captures 100-Hurdles Title

May 27, 2017 By Josh Seguin / sports@fosters.com

Marshwood Track Highlights

Girls’ Track

Noble took fifth place in a very competitive girls meet with 46 points. Thornton Academy won the championship with 85. Marshwood was 13th with eight.

The Marshwood boys finished in 11th place with 16 points, while the Noble boys finished in a tie for 14th with eight. Scarborough dominated the boys side and won with 131.

“It is hard when we get to these bigger meets,” said Marshwood coach Matt Sanzone. “A lot of the kids had great performances and their best times of the year.”

Marshwood’s Ethan Martin finished third in the 1,600 racewalk (8:02), while Noble’s Sarah Mayrose took third in the girls event (9:30). Allyson Gregoire also placed in the event for the Knights, taking fifth.

Marshwood’s Katherine Page finished fourth and also had a fifth-place finish in the 100 dash.

The Marshwood boys took fourth in the 4×400 (3:44.44). The Hawks came into the event ranked ninth among the 13 teams entered and weren’t featured in the top race.

Brody Bate took fourth in the 800 (2:02).  “I felt really good today and had a really good strategy,” said Bate. “Last week I didn’t race the 800. This is only the second time I have raced it in an outdoor meet. I sat back a bit early, but was able to come on strong.”

Marshwood’s Linus Manchester added a fifth-place finish in the long jump (19-07).

NORTH BERWICK, Maine — Noble High School junior Nina Tasker is used to winning and on Saturday at the Southwestern Maine AA Championship track and field meet, she added another medal to her growing collection.

Tasker was the lone local winner, as she took home the 100-meter hurdles crown in a time of 15.56 seconds.

“That was a good performance,” said Tasker. “It was relieving to wrap this one up because I wasn’t sure how I was going to do. I really can’t focus on the people around me, I just have to focus and do the best I can. It was nice to get this one but now I can head to the next one.”

Tasker can now focus on the Class A state meet next week, which will be held at Massebesic in nearby Waterboro.

“This meet definitely sets the stage,” said Tasker. “It is good to get a feel how others are running and how they are doing. This is good preparation for what I will see next week.

Noble took fifth place in a very competitive girls meet with 46 points. Thornton Academy won the championship with 85. Marshwood was 13th with eight.

“We are going to end right where we expected, which is all I can I ask for as a coach,” said Noble coach Daniel Lawrence. “We did everything we needed to and Nina is a beast in the hurdles for us. It is very hard to compete with the Cumberland schools because they are so spread out. Adding those schools really spreads out where you can get points.”

The Marshwood boys finished in 11th place with 16 points, while the Noble boys finished in a tie for 14th with eight. Scarborough dominated the boys side and won with 131.

“It is hard when we get to these bigger meets,” said Marshwood coach Matt Sanzone. “A lot of the kids had great performances and their best times of the year.”

“We had such a successful regular season and I tried to keep it in perspective for my team,” said Noble boys coach Rodney Brown. “I took 20 kids to this meet and was very happy with the individual stuff. Some of the kids came out a little flat but there were many good performances. It is a good test and good rehearsal for the state meet next week.”

The Knight girls continued their good season, which includes a second-place finish in the York County meet last week.

“We have a lot of young girls and few seniors running for us,” said Lawrence. “It is a budding program. We are trying to give them the mentality of competing in the championships, which is something Noble hasn’t done in recent years.”

Tasker took second in the 300-hurdles (47.45). She entered the event seeded first, but got behind heading toward the stretch and had to make up positions in the last 100. Ellen Shaw of Scarborough won in 47.32.

“I definitely plan to give much more in the 300 next week and try to get that little, extra push,” said Tasker. “It wasn’t a surprise to me, because she was right next to me and I didn’t know who would take it. I was prepared for anything that happened.”

Marshwood’s Ethan Martin finished third in the 1,600 racewalk (8:02), while Noble’s Sarah Mayrose took third in the girls event (9:30). Allyson Gregoire also placed in the event for the Knights, taking fifth.

The Noble girls finished third in the 4×100 relay (51.82) and fourth in the 4×400. Morgan Griffin took fifth place in the individual 400.

Noble’s Maggie Kelly finished second in the 200 dash (27.31). Mariah Biener of Massabesic won the event in 27.23, and Kelly beat out third place by .001 seconds. Marshwood’s Katherine Page finished fourth and also had a fifth-place finish in the 100 dash.

The Marshwood boys took fourth in the 4×400 (3:44.44). The Hawks came into the event ranked ninth among the 13 teams entered and weren’t featured in the top race.

Brody Bate took fourth in the 800 (2:02).

“I felt really good today and had a really good strategy,” said Bate. “Last week I didn’t race the 800. This is only the second time I have raced it in an outdoor meet. I sat back a bit early, but was able to come on strong.”

Brandon Allen was the best Noble boys finisher, placing fourth in the shot put (45 feet, 3.75 inches).

“I didn’t have as much of an explosion on the throw as I usually do but I still had a decent day,” said Allen. “It is a fun environment participating in these bigger meets, but they are difficult because the competition gets harder.”

Noble’s Alex Upton finished fifth in the discus (131-10). Marshwood’s Mackenzie Young finished the 3200 in 12:23 to take home fifth. Marshwood’s Linus Manchester added a fifth-place finish in the long jump (19-07).

Maine H.S. Track: Noble Girls Dash to Second Place

Exerpts:

One of the better stories was the reemergence of Mackenzie Young of Marshwood, who won the 3,200 run in a time of 12:16.91. She beat the next best runner by over 35 seconds. She didn’t PR in the event, but she came within a second.

The Hawks’ Ethan Martin won the 1,600 racewalk in a time of 7:55.29. Martin broke his own school record in the process, getting below the eight-minute mark for the first time.

The closest event of the day was in the boys high-jump. Lance Santeusanio of Noble and Marshwood’s Bailey Mergler tied with jumps of 5 feet, 4 inches. Santeusanio was deemed the winner, as he got all his jumps in before that, cleanly.

Other notables: Marshwood’s Matt Cooper finished second in the boys discus (138-06), followed in third by Noble’s Alex Upton (135-04). Knight boys were second in the 4×400. The Hawk girls were second in the 4×800 relay (10:32.32) and Noble girls were second in the 4×100 (51.23). Katherine Page of Marshwood was second in the girls 100 dash (13.18) and third in the 200.

By Josh Seguin / sports@fosters.com

NORTH BERWICK, Maine – As Noble High School’s Nina Tasker raced toward the finish line of the 300-meter hurdles at the York County Track Championship on Saturday, her stride was smooth and her hurdling was spot on. By the time she reached the finish line, she had a sizable lead. Her time of 47.58 bested the field by over two seconds.

“I have been doing hurdling events for a while, since middle school,” Tasker said. “It has become second nature to me. New people trying to go over hurdles struggle. I am so used to them and able to run them pretty well. Yesterday, I was practicing taking just 17 steps instead of 19 or 18 in-between. That pushed me forward a lot because taking less steps quickens the race. I was just digging and that really pushed up my time.”

Tasker was the top local performer in a meet that included athletes from Marshwood, Sanford, Massabesic, Bonny Eagle and Thornton. She also won the 100 hurdles in a time of 16.31 seconds and finished second in the long jump (15 feet, 10 inches).

“(Tasker) has always been a really good hurdler,” said Noble girls coach Daniel Lawrence. “She started out well and her middle school coaches coached her up well. She has worked really hard to be at the top of her game.”

Noble had a great day in the girls meet taking second with a score of 123.5 points. Thornton took home the girls title with 174.5. Marshwood finished in fifth with 52.

In the boys events, Noble finished fourth (75) and Marshwood sixth (52). Thornton won the boys events with 143, followed by Bonny Eagle (115) and Sanford (101).

“To get to a bigger meet like this it is usually a good test,” said Noble boys coach Rodney Brown. “I thought we did really well. Like today, the field and a good amount of running events will place in bigger meets going forward. I am looking forward to that.”

One of the better stories was the reemergence of Mackenzie Young of Marshwood, who won the 3,200 run in a time of 12:16.91. She beat the next best runner by over 35 seconds. She didn’t PR in the event, but she came within a second.

“When I started lapping people I had a mindset of they were in front of me and I had to beat them,” said Young. “I was zoning out so I didn’t realize if anybody behind me.”

“(Young) had a really impressive race,” said Marshwood coach Matt Sanzone. “She was running pretty much by herself the whole race. It wasn’t that surprising of a result to me because her training has been great the last few weeks. She put it all together today.”

Young, who also participates in indoor track, was set back in the winter when she came down with an illness.

“I have been having really bad two miles for both indoor season and outdoor season.,” said Young. “It was good to get back to the level I know I am capable of. My times went down considerably. I am just glad I am back healthy and back into my old form.”

The Noble girls 4×400 relay team won the event by nine seconds over Thornton in a time of 4:18.25.

“We came into today feeling really good about it,” said anchor Morgan Griffin. “We worked really hard and wanted a good time. I think that our second leg with Joselyn Jones was key. She started the momentum forward for us.”

The Hawks’ Ethan Martin won the 1,600 racewalk in a time of 7:55.29. Martin broke his own school record in the process, getting below the eight-minute mark for the first time.

“It was a really close race, but I think that having another racer near me for three of the four laps was a big thing to help me pace,” said Martin. “I felt a real big kick with the 100-meter mark and I just zoomed out.”

Noble took home four of the top five positions in the girls racewalk. Sarah Mayrose led the pack with a time of 9:38.52.

The closest event of the day was in the boys high-jump. Lance Santeusanio of Noble and Marshwood’s Bailey Mergler tied with jumps of 5 feet, 4 inches. Santeusanio was deemed the winner, as he got all his jumps in before that, cleanly.

“It was (Mergler’s) first real competition today, in which he put it all together,” said Sanzone . “It was amazing to see what we could do.”

Santeusanio was off his normal pace in the event. Mergler but impressed in the event, given it was his first time in competition. He also took second in the (Pole) vault.

“Not much went well for me,” said Santeusanio. “I jumped much lower than I usually do. My PR is six feet and I only jumped 5-4. That brought others into play. I was able to be clean through 5-4, which won me the event.”

Other notables: Marshwood’s Matt Cooper finished second in the boys discus (138-06), followed in third by Noble’s Alex Upton (135-04). Knight boys were second in the 4×400. The Hawk girls were second in the 4×800 relay (10:32.32) and Noble girls were second in the 4×100 (51.23). Katherine Page of Marshwood was second in the girls 100 dash (13.18) and third in the 200.

Hawks Slip to a Surprising 2-7 in Class A South

May 16, 2017 By Mike Zhe  mzhe@seacoastonline.com

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Afterward, the postgame routine for the Marshwood High School baseball team was the same.

Coach Eric Fernandes gathered his players at second base and addressed them for several minutes, applauding them for a well-played, well-pitched, mostly clean game against a formidable opponent.

The difference on a sun-splashed Tuesday? The Hawks left the diamond with a 2-7 record around their necks following their 5-2 loss to Scarborough in extra innings.

That’s something new.

“We’re not getting handled,” said Fernandes. “I don’t know how much luck is involved in things, but there’s not a break being made or gotten, for sure. The guys hustled and played baseball today. I’m proud of how they showed up.”

The Hawks began the day 15th in the Class A South standings, with the top 12 making the playoffs. In most recent years, their battle at this time of year has been for one of the higher seeds.

It would have been a nice win to own. It wasn’t.

“We know we have a good team,” said starting pitcher Nate Curtis, who largely breezed through seven innings before things broke down in the top of the eighth. “Things just aren’t bouncing our way. We’re playing good ball and we’re hustling around. It’s rough going, but we’re trying to get through it.”

Cole McDaniel drove in both of the Hawks’ runs with a two-out single in the second. No. 9 hitter Jack Cahill had a single and a double, and scored a run.

The bats had been defused on both ends and each team had turned to its bullpen when extra innings arrived. After returning the first two Red Storm batters in the top of the eighth, reliever Cooper Whitehouse — one of four pitchers in the inning — gave up a single to center that was misplayed, putting Tim Carion on second.

After an intentional walk, Wyatt Plummer hit a hard grounder that was missed, snapping the tie. Morgan Pratt and Zach Alofs followed with RBI singles to stretch the lead. All three runs were unearned.

Seymour, the catcher, relieved Pratt in the bottom of the seventh and retired six of the seven batters he faced to close out the win for the Red Storm (6-4).

“I was real proud of our guys because we’ve had a couple rough games,” said Scarborough coach Mike D’Andrea. “That’s kind of been our m.o. this year, to bounce back. We ran into a tough pitcher, the Curtis kid. He gave up two in the first inning and pretty much dominated the rest of the way.

“But we hung in there. Our pitchers kept us in there. When Cam Seymour came in and was strong the way he was, you could feel the momentum shift.”

After giving up a two-run double to Pratt in the top of the first, Curtis, a big junior, locked in. He retired 10 of 11 batters and didn’t allow a runner to reach second base after the first, getting help from catcher Holden Jackman, who erased two would-be base-stealers.

“At first, I didn’t feel like I had my best stuff,” said Curtis. “Coach (Larry) Kilbourn always tells me, don’t let anybody get in your head. I just try to zone everything out and just pitch, and it worked pretty well today.”

On a Scarborough team that doesn’t have a clear ace, the right-handed Pratt danced around trouble in the early innings — the Hawks stranded four in scoring position in the first three frames — and got tougher. He retired his last 10 batters before yielding to Seymour.

“It was big,” said D’Andrea, of escaping the early situations. “We talked to Morgan about getting the ball down in the zone and pitching. We had to go to some off-speed and keep the ball out of the middle of the plate.

“But give them credit: Eric’s got a good baseball team. It was a good battle, a good game to be in. We’re happy to be on the winning side.”

The Hawks have dropped a pair of one-run games and now this one in extra innings, which has lowered them into the nether regions of the standings.

“We’ve never been there,” said Fernandes. “We’ve just got to prepare for tomorrow and prepare for Thursday. They’re doing everything we ask them to do.”

The record is down. The heads weren’t.

Apr 27, 2017

By Tim MacLean / sports@fosters.com

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Revenge wasn’t on the mind of the Marshwood High School girls lacrosse team on Thursday as it took the field against Massabesic. Sure, the Hawks were going up against the team that beat them in the Class A South championship game last year, but the focus was on the here and now.

Unfortunately for the Hawks, the result wasn’t any different this time around in a 9-3 defeat.

“I think we learned a lot as to how we’re working as a team right now,” Marshwood goalie Skyler Amsden said. “People are in new positions, just seeing how we’re dealing with different teams already at the beginning of the season. [It’s] good to see we pushed to the end as an entire team, especially at the beginning of the season. We already know we’re working together as a team.”

Marshwood (1-1) held a 2-1 lead early on in the first half as Hannah Costin (three goals) scored two goals in the first five minutes of the game. Massabesic (1-0) answered with four straight goals to end the half, with Skylar Renaud (two goals), Morgan Pike (two goals) and Madison Drain each finding the back of the net to give the Mustangs a 5-2 lead going into halftime.

Josie Ring notched Massabesic’s sixth goal of the game to open the second half but was quickly answered by Costin to bring the deficit back down to three goals.

But the Mustangs scored another three straight goals — courtesy of Logan Champlin, Pike and Taylor Manning — for the final score.

Marshwood coach Bernie Marvin wasn’t too disappointed with the result.

“Massabesic is a good team,” Marvin said. “We have three freshmen in the attacking zone and we were excited just because it’s a very good opportunity to get them up against a pressure defense. So we have a lot of things to work on, which we knew. We got to work on them [today] and we’ll only improve from here.”

That pressure defense Marvin talked about is actually one of the biggest focuses for the Mustangs this season.

“We’ve been working on it diligently in the preseason, our defensive communication,” Massabesic coach Brooks Bowen said. “And at times it’s really good and at times it just goes away completely. When you’re running a zone-type defense communication is critical. We just got caught a couple of times with three second calls, we got caught a couple times with shooting space calls and that’s just a lack of communication down there. It’s pretty early in the season and I think both teams have room for improvement.”

Marshwood will be right back at on Friday, hosting rival York.

“We have a lot of new players this year so it was really good to see early on who’s working where, what we’re doing,” Marshwood’s Luci Albers said. “I think it was really good to see this. No matter the outcome, it was good. We know what we have to work on. We can go from this and move on and prepare for the next time we see them.”

Max Richardson, 2105 Marshwood High School Graduate Performs on Trumpet in the University of Southern Maine Honors Recital

Max is the son of Ted and Heather Richardson and his brothers Carter and Logan are students at Marshwood High School and are also musicians.  They are residents of South Berwick.

Max performed on trumpet in the U.S.M Honors Recital which features the most talented performers in the U.S.M. School of Music.  It is a special honor for a student to be invited to perform at this recital. 

Max performed both as a soloist and as part of a jazz sextet.  His solo selection was the very challenging “Fantasie Brillante” by Jean-Baptiste Arban and he performed with amazing technique on a very challenging piece. 

Max is studying Jazz Performance at U.S.M. and will be performing with the Marshwood High School Jazz Ensemble at their spring concert on Thursday,  May 11th.  Max also performs frequently at Prescott Park, Seacoast Repertory Theater, and the Rochester Opera House.   He has performed with a number of local bands including the Soggy Po Boys and The Chris Humphrey Big Band.

Max is pictured with David Miller, Marshwood Music Educator, after the concert at USM.

Marshwood Graduate Andrew Blunt

Students Dream Up New Uses for Old Navy Base

Andrew Blunt, Marshwood High School Graduate

April 20, 2017 by Rebecca Goldfine

For Katie Morse-Gagne ’19 and Andrew Blunt ’19, the 260 acres of sandplain grassland, vernal pools and stream systems, oak-pine forest and pitch pine heath barren on the former Navy base represent a bounty of possibilities for Bowdoin and the town.

Since last fall, when they were in Assistant Professor of Biology Vlad Douhovnikoff’s Forest Ecology class, the two sophomores have been engaged in all aspects of drafting a land management plan for several acres of undeveloped property that was once part of the former Brunswick Naval Air Station. The federal government has conveyed portions of the unimproved property to the College and other portions to Brunswick in a process that has been ongoing since the base was decommissioned in 2007 and the Navy moved out in 2010.

Andrew Blunt and Katie Morse-Gagne

While Bowdoin cannot commit right now to taking action on the land, the administration says it appreciates the work the two students are doing, according to Catherine Ferdinand, who is Bowdoin’s Government Relations and Land Use Specialist. “The College benefits from the energy and fresh perspective the students bring to this project, while the students get a unique opportunity to experience and learn about the real challenges of land use management,” she wrote in an email. “The Forest Ecology class did an impressive job compiling information about the property’s characteristics and potential. Katie and Andrew are refining some existing ideas about how the property could be used and exploring some new ideas.”

Though Bowdoin is still in the early stages of its own planning for the property, Morse-Gagne said she and Blunt have been encouraged by college officials and their advisors – Douhovnikoff and lab instructor Jaret Reblin – to “think big.”

But the two students, who are both environmental studies double majors, said they are mindful about keeping their proposals relatively simple, affordable, and environmentally low impact.

One idea of theirs is to install a grid of bat houses and bird houses — mainly for tree swallows and blue birds — for research and recreational bird/bat watching. Morse-Gagne added, “And maybe owl houses, too.” An abandoned munitions bunker could be turned into a bat hibernaculum, they suggested.

The two students have been scheduling meetings all semester with town and college officials to propose their ideas and suggest collaborations. For instance, they met with the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust to talk about creating a trail system on the Bowdoin land that connects to the new Kate Furbish preserve on the southern end of the base. They’d also like the trail system to link to the Bowdoin Town Commons trail network.

They’ve met with Bowdoin Organic Garden supervisor Jeremy Tardif to see about the possibility of creating more gardens on the land, as well as fruit orchards.

Professor Vladimir Douhovnikoff on the base with some of his students

They’ve talked to biology faculty about setting up experimental forest plots and field monitoring gauges to collect weather data or stream data.

They’re also suggesting that perhaps the college should remove the chain link fencing around much of the property, eradicate invasive plants that are threatening native plants, build an orienteering course and an archery range, and form a management committee for the future use of and care for the land.

The land is beautiful and ecologically interesting, and right now under-used, Morse-Gagne and Blunt said. When they first 

stepped foot on the property last fall, they were amazed. “We own this!” Douhovnikoff told his students after opening the locked gates. “People were like, what!?” Blunt recalled.

“We want to put the property more on the radar of campus than it is now,” Morse-Gagne said. “It’s a really cool piece of land. I’ve been excited to wander around it. We’ve had some good exploring days.”

For Hawks’ Lacrosse Hannah Costin, It’s Not How Big You are, It’s How Big You Play

http://www.seacoastonline.com/sports/20170420/for-hawks-hannah-costin-its-not-how-big-you-are-its-how-big-you-play

By Mike Zhe  mzhe@seacoastonline.com April 20, 2017

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — The offense is designed to go through Hannah Costin. Costin, meanwhile, seems designed to go through just about everything else.

The Marshwood High School girls lacrosse team is just a few days away from opening another anticipated season and Costin, a high-scoring senior attack, is a big reason for that optimism, even if she’s not that big in stature.

“She plays like a box lacrosse player,” said her coach, Bernie Marvin, referring to the tighter indoor game. “She’s not a big kid. In the trees down low, she just gets even lower. I don’t know if it’s a field hockey thing or what, but she just comes out of there.”

Costin and her classmates were key parts of the Hawks’ first-ever Class A championship in 2015, and among the leaders on last year’s team that was edged in the regional final by Massabesic.

As a junior, Costin scored 60 goals and set up 19 others as the Hawks went 13-2 overall. As a sophomore, she scored 31 goals and assisted on 13 as a secondary offensive option on the title team.

Seacoast Sports Weekly Podcast

“The offense goes through her,” said Marvin, who is in his 12th season as coach. “Even though everybody knows it, and she has at least two (defenders) on her, she is just a tremendously smooth player, one of the best players I’ve ever coached here offensively.”

“It’s definitely pressure, but there are so many people that can control the ball on this team,” said Costin. “I rely on the team to make a lot of good plays.”

What makes her so effective? One, she has a superb shot, that she’ll unload from either side. Her smallish stature, instead of being a hindrance, allows to get inside and under defenders trying to block her path to the goal.

April 20, 2017

“I grew up really small,” she said. “I always duck when I do a move so it’s really easy for me to maneuver through people. Honestly, I kind of plan it before I do it in my head.”

“She is definitely a very important player for our team,” said senior midfielder Luci Albers, another top offensive threat. “A big part of our team dynamic is looking for Hannah and finding Hannah.”

Costin is part of a talented senior class that also includes Albers, who’ll play at Division II Southern New Hampshire; defensive midfielder Reagan Nichols, who’s heading to Division II AIC; and defender Paige Singer.

Those four are serving as team captains, with Marin Smith another key senior in the midfield. Junior defender Chloe Shields and junior goalie Skyler Amsden are the other returning starters.

As of a couple weeks ago, Costin was still weighing her college options. She said she has offers to play for Division II schools in both lacrosse and field hockey, another sport where she’s enjoyed a standout high school career.

She was named MVP in field hockey in the Southwestern Maine Activities Association in the fall, leading the Hawks to the Class A South championship game, where they lost at Massabesic, 2-1, with Costin scoring their only goal.

But first, she’d like to leave one more mark at Marshwood. The Hawks open their new lacrosse season on Tuesday at the Maine Girls’ Academy, and then host Massabesic in a regional final rematch on Thursday.

Last year’s final ended with the Mustangs winning, 7-6, scoring the game-winning goal with 1:27 left in regulation. That followed a just-as-tight regular-season meeting where the Hawks scored twice late to win, 5-4.

For Costin and her teammates, the first game last year was celebrated. The second was remembered all through the offseason.

’It motivates us so much more,” said Costin. “It was really sad that we lost but we knew we had another year to put it all out there, and that’s what we want to do.”

Beaulieu Second to One at Wrestling Nationals

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Bradley Beaulieu’s final high school goal was to win a national championship.

Almost wasn’t quite enough.

The Marshwood High School senior went 5-1 during the National High School Coaches Association’s Wrestling Nationals this weekend. He lost in the finals at 132 pounds Sunday to Franco Valdes of Florida, 3-2. It was Beaulieu’s first loss of the year.

The event was held over three days at the Virginia Beach Convention Center.

Beaulieu, who was a four-time state champion in Maine, recently won a New England title at 138 pounds, the first-ever regional crown captured by a Marshwood wrestler. He led the Hawks to three Class A state titles in four years.

Beaulieu advanced to the championship with five wins over two days. He beat, in order, Tyler DiFore, Fla., 6-0; Jared Donahue, W. Va., 4-0; Michael Venosa, N.Y., 5-4; KJ Fenstermacher, Pa., 4-3, and Grant Willits, Colo., 5-2.

Beaulieu will wrestle at Old Dominion University this fall on partial scholarship. He ended his Marshwood career with a state-record 246 career wins. His record this season was 58-1.

Bradley Beaulieu had two major goals in mind when he entered his senior season of wrestling at Marshwood High: regain the Class A team title and win his first New England championship.

“I had accomplished a lot as an individual, and last year, not winning that team title really stuck with me,” Beaulieu said. “I didn’t want to come home from this year’s states with a second place or a third place.”

Bradley Beaulieu, the winningest wrestler in Maine history, became a four-time state champion while helping Marshwood regain the Class A team title, then captured his first New England championship.

Wrestling at 138 pounds, Beaulieu won it all this year.

He won the Lowell Invitational, New England’s largest tournament. He won his fourth Class A title in his fourth weight class. Marshwood, which had its four-year title streak snapped by Skowhegan in 2016, stormed back with a revamped lineup this season. The Hawks dominated the Class A tournament, scoring 184 points to beat runner-up and archrival Noble by 103.5 points.

Then, Beaulieu capped his 53-0 season with a New England championship, winning the one regional title that had eluded him after placing sixth, second and third in his previous three tries.

“It was one of his things on his bucket list, one of the few that he hadn’t accomplished,” said Coach Matt Rix.

With his New England title, Beaulieu raised his career record to 243-14, giving him the most wins in Maine high school history.

Add in his leadership for a team that had eight wrestlers place for the first time at the state championships, and Beaulieu is the Maine Sunday Telegram Wrestler of the Year.

“Something that makes me happy as a leader is that we all came together as a team,” Beaulieu said.

With few in-state wrestlers capable of testing Beaulieu, the Marshwood coaching staff helped him avoid fixating on the New England championship.

“They reminded me to enjoy the entire season. Senior year, it was my last of everything – my last regional, my last states, my last all-states – as a Marshwood Hawk. So there was always something to keep me going, and when New Englands came around I was ready to go.”

Beaulieu tops a senior class that included four other 200-win wrestlers, including New England 106-pound champion Cody Craig of Skowhegan and New England 170-pound runner-up Robert Hetherman of Mt. Ararat.

Beaulieu, who trains year-round, will wrestle for Old Dominion University.

Rix said it wasn’t unusual for Beaulieu to go straight from a Marshwood practice to Smitty’s Wrestling Barn, 37 miles away in Kingston, New Hampshire, to get in an extra workout.

“I’m not sure what keeps him going. I think he just loves the sport, the competition, the scrambles,” Rix said. “He doesn’t get flustered. He’s very good at not putting himself in a bad position. He’s very aware of where his hips are. He’s got phenomenal hips. He has a good sense of feeling what’s going to happen.”

ALL-STATE TEAM

Cody Craig, Skowhegan senior, 106: Craig, a four-time All-State choice, capped his brilliant career with a 63-0 season and a New England championship. A four-time state champion and the first person to win four New England qualifier tournaments, Craig was 221-5 in his career, with all five losses at the New England championships.

Leo Amabile, Massabesic senior, 113: Amabile won his first Class A title and also won the New England qualifier. He finished the season with a 43-2 record, with both losses coming at the New England championships, and was 140-22 in his career.

Alex Fogarty, Oceanside sophomore, 120: In a topsy-turvy weight class, Fogarty won the Class B North regional and the New England qualifier (against Devon Vigue of Winslow, who beat him in the Class B state meet). The 106-pound champ as a freshman, Fogarty went 41-8, including a 2-2 record at the New England championships.

Caleb Austin, Mountain Valley senior, 126: One of the five seniors to cross the 200-win plateau this season, Austin is a repeat All-State pick. He won his second Class B title and the New England qualifier before going 2-2 at the New England championships. Austin was 50-3 this season and 207-11 in his career.

Samson Sirois, Skowhegan junior, 132: Sirois did not lose to a Maine wrestler in a 48-4 season and beat four-time state champ Danny Buteau of Oak Hill 6-5, at the New England qualifier. The Class A champ placed fourth at the New England championships and is 148-9 in his career.

Bradley Beaulieu, Marshwood senior, 138: A four-time state champion and three-time All-State selection, Beaulieu went 53-0 and won the New England championship. He was instrumental in leading Marshwood to the Class A title. Beaulieu, who will compete at Old Dominion University, posted a career record of 243-14.

Austin Shorey, Noble senior, 145: A three-time All-State choice, Shorey moved up from 120 pounds and won his second Class A title before placing sixth at the New England championships. Shorey went 61-7 this season and finished with a career mark of 225-31.

Peyton Cole, Ellsworth junior, 152: Cole, a three-time All-State pick, won his third state title and his second New England qualifier, then placed fourth at the New Englands. He finished 46-2 this season and is 117-16 in his career.

Sam Anderson, Sanford junior, 160: After wrestling at 182 as a sophomore, Anderson was a force this winter, winning outstanding wrestler honors at the Noble Invitational, and then taking the Class A and New England qualifier titles in a 41-5 season. He has a career mark of 112-38.

Robert Hetherman, Mt. Ararat/Brunswick senior, 170: Hetherman got his 200th career win in the Class A final, then beat Trent Goodman of Ellsworth in the New England qualifier before finishing second at the New England championships. He went 54-1 this season and was 206-18 with 126 pins in his career.

Ryan Fredette, Winslow junior, 182: After an unbeaten season in Maine that included Class B and New England qualifier titles, Fredette was one of the four Mainers to reach the final at the New England championships. His loss in the final left him with a 50-1 record.

Nolan Potter, Wells junior, 195: The Class B and New England qualifier champion was another who did not lose in Maine with a 50-2 record this season, including a 2-2 mark at the New England championships. He is 116-33 in his career.

Matthew Carroll, Massabesic senior, 220: Carroll won the Class A title and New England qualifier, and went 40-4 to finish his career with a 110-17 record.

David Gross, Bucksport freshman, 285: Gross backed up his Class B championship by beating Class A winner Zebulon Leavitt of Cheverus in the New England qualifier final. Gross went 39-4 this season.

COACH OF THE YEAR

Matt Rix, Marshwood: The Hawks won their fifth Class A title in six years because Rix developed quality wrestlers across all weight classes. Marshwood returned only three wrestlers who placed in the top four at the 2016 Class A state meet. This season the Hawks had 11 top-four finishers and won the title by more than 100 points.

Marshwood Students to Perform ‘The Pajama Game’

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Plenty of “Steam Heat” is being generated at Marshwood High School as cast and crew members prepare for this year’s spring musical, “The Pajama Game,” which opens March 31.

In this toe-tapping, comedic love story, conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful when sparks fly between new superintendent, Sid Sorokin, and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7½-cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

Director Tanya West has enjoyed the adventure of visiting 1954 and experiencing the history. She found that the entire cast and crew has appreciated researching the fashion, interior design, pop art, music and more. “We have done multiple shows set in the 1950’s so I was looking for a new spin. That’s when the concept of 1950s pop art came into play, not only with paintings but with signs and props as well. Even  how we approached character development was impacted by the cartoon, over-exaggerated feel,” she said.

The Pajama Game is a musical based on the Richard Bissell novel, “7½ Cents.” The original Broadway production opened in May 1954. The Pajama Game was awarded the 1955 Tony Award for Best Musical and Warner Brothers released a film version in 1957. Over half of a century later, it claimed the award for Best Revival of a Musical in 2006, proving that the story is truly timeless.

Marshwood High School junior Ava Magoon, who plays Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee previously played by Doris Day in the movie version, said the production exceeded her expectations. “Each character brings a wild element to the story and it has been so exciting watching my fellow cast members and friends navigate their way through these fictitious, though strikingly realistic personas,” she said.

Magoon said playing the role of Babe was both a challenging and rewarding experience. “I believe I have grown both as a performer and as a person throughout this entire process,” she said.

With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross (Damn Yankees), “The Pajama Game” is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theater standards, including “Steam Heat,” “Hey There,” “There Once Was a Woman” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.”

Senior Ethan Martin, who plays the character of Sid Sorokin, can’t believe this will be the last production of his high school acting career. “I began performing in Marshwood Theater as a third grader in “Bye Bye Birdie” and I am very thankful for all the opportunities Ms. West has given me. The brilliant acting, comedic timing, and musicality of the cast of ‘The Pajama Game’ leaves me with no doubt that this show will be one to remember,” he said.

Performances of “The Pajama Game” will be at 7 p.m. on March 31, April 1, April 7 and April 8 in the Wesley E. Kennedy Performing Arts Center at Marshwood High School. Tickets are available by calling 207-384-4500 or online at marshwoodmusic.org.

How Are School Districts Preparing For LePage’s Proposed Education Cuts?

3:04 / 3:13 How Are School Districts Preparing For LePage’s Proposed Education Cuts?

In his budget proposal released earlier this year, Gov. Paul LePage vowed to drastically transform how schools are funded. The most notable change was the removal of roughly $40 million that the state gives local districts to help pay the salaries of administrators.

In his State of the State address, LePage hammered home the point that he thinks there are far too many administrators in Maine’s schools. Most notably, he pointed to the more than 100 school superintendents across the state.

“We are the biggest outlier in the country when it comes to superintendents,” he says. “We are just out of control. We need to seek accountability.”

Among many changes, LePage’s new budget would remove all state money for those administrators — about $40 million.

The new funding formula would boost allocations for some districts. Lewiston, for example, would receive an additional $4 million, and districts in Wells and Kittery would see at least another $100,000. However, other districts are looking at deficits that have them worried.

“There’s a point where you can’t do it with what you’ve got,” says Mary Nash, superintendent for MSAD 35, which covers Eliot and South Berwick.

Under the new budget plan, Nash says her district is looking at a loss of more than $750,000 in state funds. She says the district would have to cut teachers and increase class sizes across every grade in order to balance its books.

Nash says she understands that the governor wants to decrease administrative costs and direct more money toward student instruction, but she says his plan would likely wind up hurting students in her district instead.

“These cuts are so significant. They will impact every single one of our students next year. There’s no question,” she says. “And that’s what’s at stake for us.”

In RSU 18, in the Belgrade Lakes region, Superintendent Gary Smith is looking at similar losses.

“We are getting too good at cutting,” he says. “Each year, and this year’s no different.”

Smith says for the past eight years, his district’s budget has increased by only about 2 percent. But this year, he expects to reduce the staff by the equivalent of five-and-a-half positions.

On top of that, Smith says he’s asking local voters to put up extra money this year to help cover losses from the state. But he’s unsure how much more they will agree to pay in property taxes.

“I’m expecting, because we have some of the lowest mill rates in Kennebec County, I expect some very good questioning about a 3.25 percent budget increase,” he says.

While the cuts in these districts are severe, they aren’t set in stone. The Legislature will continue to debate the budget over the next few months.

Earlier this month, dozens of educators packed a budget hearing to testify against the proposal. Many were critical of the fact that the plan ignores a referendum approved this past fall that boosts education funding through a surtax on wealthier households.

Ultimately, school officials say they are optimistic that the Legislature will include more funding for education in its final budget. But in the meantime, they have to be prepared.

Marshwood Students Shine in CyberPatriots National Youth Cyber Education Competition

 
This year Marshwood High School has had twelve students participating in the CyberPatriots National Youth Cyber Education program. CyberPatriot is the premier national youth cyber education program created to inspire high school and middle school students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future. The program was created by the Air Force Association. The Northrop Grumman Foundation is the presenting sponsor.
 
Marshwood students have participated in five rounds of competition, each taking approximately six hours. There were 4404 teams registered in the program this year, and there 2,217 in Marshwood’s division, the Open Division. Of those, 151 qualified for and participated in the Platinum Regionals, the most competitive tier. One of Mashwood’s teams, which had previously won first place for the State of Maine in an earlier round, performed exceedingly well in Regionals. Again they were first of the teams from Maine, sixth of the teams from the Northeast (including New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine), and 44th in the nation.
The team members are Brian Austin, Stephen Kaplan, Nathan Kiesman, Noble Mushtak, and Stephen Rezack.

Hawks Valiant in Loss to Top Seed Greely 46, Marshwood 35

By Mike Zhe  mzhe@seacoastonline.com Feb 22, 2017

PORTLAND, Maine — One day before the biggest game of her career, coach Steve Freeman pulled aside his leading scorer, Natalie Herbold, to try to gauge her nerves.

Herbold, a sophomore on the Marshwood High School girls basketball team, had been shaky in the team’s first playoff game, a close win on Monday. Now, she and her teammates were preparing to play the best team in Class A South in the state’s biggest venue.

“I didn’t know, speaking with her, if she was going to relax,” said Freeman. “But she did. She just went out and played.”

They all did.

No, the fourth-seeded Hawks didn’t get to celebrate an upset for the ages against Greely at the Cross Insurance Center on Wednesday. Their defense kept them in the game into the fourth quarter but their offense couldn’t produce enough in a 46-35 loss.

But they sure made it interesting.

“At the Expo I couldn’t get out of my head,” said Herbold, who scored a team-high eight points. “Here, we just calmed down for some reason.”

Top-seeded Greely (19-1) will face No. 2 Brunswick (17-3) for the regional championship here on Saturday. Standout Anna DeWolfe was held to 10 points on 3-of-15 shooting and missed time with foul trouble, but freshman Brooke Obar netted 13 points for the Rangers, including three big 3-pointers.

“I was really impressed with the way they were attacking us,” said Greely coach Todd Flaherty. “I thought they played very hard and had a heck of a game plan.”

The Hawks (15-5) had been overmatched on the boards during a 65-44 loss to the Rangers in South Berwick last month. But they cleaned that up entirely in the first half, grabbing six more boards than their opponent and trailing just 21-18 at the break.

A 3-pointer by freshman Angelina Bisson put them ahead briefly midway through the second quarter. Herbold’s baseline pull-up was the last basket in an opening two quarters that was ruled by defense, the Hawks throwing a few different looks at the Rangers, including guard Courtney Thim shadowing DeWolfe in a version of a box-and-one.

“We knew they were uncomfortable,” said Freeman. “You could feel it from their fans and you could feel it from their team, with their body language. They weren’t comfortable. … We were flying high.”

“We knew we could do it; we just wanted to prove it to everyone else,” said Thim. “So it was like validation. But we also knew we had to keep going.”

Greely scored the first five points of the third quarter to go ahead by eight. Back came the Hawks, who got a follow from Elora Montgomery and two Celine Lawrence free throws to pull within 28-24.

But as their defense was keeping them close, their offense was being kept in check by the Rangers, who wouldn’t allow consecutive baskets again until the end.

“They definitely took away our 3-ball tonight,” said Thim. “We missed a couple shots that could have gotten us over the hump.”

With three starters saddled with three fouls, Greely was content to pull the ball back and slow the game down. A seven-point lead at the end of the third grew to as many as 13 in the fourth, the team finishing 14-of-17 from the foul line.

“We did some things we haven’t had to do all year,” said Flaherty.

Bisson, the former JV player who scored 16 in the quarterfinal win over Fryeburg on Monday, was the team’s second-leading scorer with six. The Hawks shot 12-of-50 from the floor (24 percent) and lost the turnover battle 13-10.

The last chance they had came after Alicia Richards hit a 3-pointer to make it 36-29 with a little under six minutes left. But they wouldn’t score again for more than three minutes.

“We just never got over the top,” said Freeman. “We missed a couple bunnies and missed a couple plays that were there. They did a good job taking away the 3-pointer from us; we didn’t have a chance to get many up and that’s part of our game.”

Marshwood, whose roster is dominated by sophomores, should return every member of its rotation next year, losing just two seniors: guard Hannah Fife and co-captain Taylor Tarr.

Plus this valuable experience.

“Now we’re hungry to win next year,” said Herbold. “It’s really something to look forward to.”

“We don’t want to be satisfied coming up here and giving them a game,” said Freeman. “We want this to make them hungry to come back next year. I thought they handled the atmosphere and handled the moment. We just got beat by a better team.”

Seacoast Roundup: GIRLS BASKETBALL: Marshwood 57, Noble 26

Feb 10, 2017

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Senior Taylor Tarr shared team-high honors with eight points, and fellow senior Hannah Fife played some tremendous defense on Noble standout Amy Fleming to help the Hawks close the regular season at 14-4 in Class A South. The Knights closed at 1-17 in Class AA South.

Natalie Herbold also scored eight in the win for Marshwood, which will likely be the No. 4 seed and play a quarterfinal game at the Portland Expo on Feb. 20.

Sam Couture hit three 3-pointers and led Noble with nine points. Fleming scored three.

Hawks, Noble Gear up for Regional Wrestling Battle

The race to the Maine Class A state wrestling championship starts this Saturday at Massabesic High School in Waterboro, Maine.

The site of the Class A South regional, defending regional champion Marshwood and rival Noble will use this Saturday’s meet as a steppingstone to the state meet.

In short, each team will try and qualify as many wrestlers as possible in order to be at their very deepest and best for the Class A meet on Feb. 18 at Camden Hills.

Marshwood and Noble were 1-2 at last year’s regional meet, and should battle one other again this year with Sanford in the mix. At the state meet, Skowhegan captured the crown, the first won by a Class A North school since 1984. It also ended Marshwood’s four-year reign as state champions.

The Hawks are the favorite Saturday. They will fill all weight classes and coach Matt Rix expects no less than 11 wrestlers to advance.

“Marshwood’s the frontrunner,” said Noble coach Kip DeVoll. “We don’t have the horses to compete with them at the regional level.”

Noble, which will likely not have a wrestler at 195 and heavyweight, could advance as many as 10.

DeVoll said the complexion could change at the state meet where the northern schools have some very good wrestlers in the upper weight classes.

Marshwood (24-0 dual meet record) wrestled Noble twice late in the season, each time coming away with dual wins (47-23, 41-27). Rix said little attention can be paid to those wins when referencing the regional this Saturday.

“(Noble’s) a good tournament team,” Rix said.

The seeding meeting was scheduled for Thursday, but the snow moved it to Friday night. Rix expected to have as may as six No. 1 seeds: Matt Thompson (120 pounds), Brad Beaulieu (138), Matt Caverly (152), Dylan Strong (170), Austin Locke (182) and James Thompson (195).

He also has several wrestlers expected to be seeded at No. 2 or 3: Brandon Sandler (106), Liam Coomey (113), David Spinney (126), Kyle Glidden (132) and Zach Eastman (heavyweight).

“We just have to get them through,” Rix said.

Beaulieu is a three-time state champ and recently broke the career state record for wins held by former teammate Cody Hughes.

Noble will follow the lead of seniors Jake Martel (132), Austin Shorey (145) and Kasey Rogers (152). Martel is a defending state champ. Shorey won two years ago as a sophomore, and was second last year at 120 and third in the New Englands.

Shorey and Martel are likely No. 1 seeds. Part of that depends, in DeVoll’s mind, if Marshwood’s Beaulieu stays at 138 or moves down to 132.

Other Knights who could be high seeds are Sam Martel at 106 (1 or 2), Duncan McGilvery at 120 (No. 2), John Grenier at 138 (1 or 2) and Rogers at 152 (2 to 4).

Also in the running to advance to the state meet are Jaden Balcewicz (113), Joe Pilecki (126), Colin Cyr (160) and Hil Keisker (170).

“We should take second place unless we have a total meltdown,” DeVoll said. “Marshwood has too many Nos. 1 and 2 seeds.”

DeVoll added that snow has already impacted practices this week, leading to several cancellations. There is snow in the forecast for Saturday, so there is the potential for the regional meet to be postponed.

NOTES: Rix picked up his 600th career coaching win during last Saturday’s meet at Westbrook with Noble. … Eastman earned his 100th career win last Saturday. Caverly and Glidden collected their milestone wins earlier this year.
