Scarborough sweeps Class A state meets

4x800

Girls

The girls 4x800 was a back and forth affair throughout. Early leaders were Mt. Ararat & Brewer, with other contenders Scarborough & Brunswick a little bit back. Scarborough had to run without Abby Chick (So.), who was out of the meet with the flu. Brewer surged passed Mt. Ararat on the 3rd leg behind a strong effort from Sara Chavarie(Fr.), while Scarborough's Melissa Dellatore continued to make up ground on the leaders. Brewer had the lead heading into the anchor leg, Michelle Haluska (So.) had 4th leg, while Scarborough's Whitney Chamberlain (Sr.), the #1 seed in the 800 was on anchor for the Red Storm, Mt Ararat wasn't out of it yet either, as they had Christina Erving (Sr.) running anchor. Chamberlain set off in pursuit of Haluska immediatley and closed up the 3-4 second gap in the span of 100 meters. She sat until they passed the 200m and surged to lead and never looked back, leading the Red Storm to a victory, Erving chased Haluska all the way to line, edging her out of the lean 10:08.59 to 10:08.90.

Boys

Cheverus led most the 4x800, with the exception of half lap when the Bangor Rams assumed the lead. The goal coming into the race was the state record 8:20.2, held by Deering High School and the Stags did just that dipping under the record with anchor Andrew Synder (Jr.) coming home in 8:19.05 for a new state record, other member os the Cheverus squad where Taylor Dundas (Jr), Josh Reali (Sr.) & Jack Terwilliger (So.). The battle for 2nd was between defending 4x800 champion Scarborough and Brunswick, both teams were expected to contend for the team overall title. The Red Storm used a strong 2nd leg from James Wright (Sr.) to pull ahead of the Dragons, and Nick Morris (Fr.) held a slight advantage over Liam Cassidy (Jr.) as they handed off to the anchor legs Sam Chick (Sr.) of Scarborough and Will Geoghegan (Jr.) Brunswick. Chick maintained the lead for Scarborough, running a controlled 2:00.5 leg.

The boys Shot was a very competitive event this year, and the big throws started early in the first round of qualfying. John White (Jr.) who had been hurt most of the year with an MCL sprain, launched his first throw out over 48 ft. to set the tone. Jacob Dubois (Sr.) was next up and followed suit with a strong thorw of 48-10. John Gilboy (Sr.) & Justin Gagne follwed suit each getting out over 49 ft. In round two, Gagne unleashed his best throw of the day a new PR, 51-9 1/2 to put the pressue on the rest of the field. No one could catch up the rest of the day.

Sean Seekins (Sr.) of Bangor was the most consistent jumper, clearing 6'2 with no misses to prevail over Imadhi Zagon (So.) who also cleared 6'2, but was 2nd on misses. Seekins, who jumped 6'2 for the first time at last weekend's EMITL championship, proved it was no fluke.

The girls long jump was viewed as a pivotal event for the team title, Edward Little, Brewer, & Scarborough all had athletes expected to score points and they did just that. Maria Curit (So.) made everyone take notice when she popped off a 17-0 1/2 jump in the 2nd round, but that mark didn't stand for long as Red Storm senior, Lauren Blaisdell answered with a huge leap and personal best 17-2 3/4. That mark would stand up and gave the Red Storm some unexpected points. The level of competiton has been raised as 6 girls leaped out past 16 ft.

The girls vault had been having a lackluster year, in terms of number of vaulters hitting the qualifying standard, however the state championship brought out the competitive fire of the ladies and we saw the best vaulting of the year with 8 girls over 8-0. In the end it was #1 seed Emily Hartzell (Sr.) taking the top spot with her 9-0 vault, she won on misses over Jen Tsang (Sr.) Bangor and Kaitlin Noyes (Sr.)

The girls Mile was a two girl race, until the bell lap when Fiona Hendry (Fr.) ripped the final lap in 35 seconds for a impressive 5:10.99 clocking, which is a new PR.

Girls 800m

The girls 800m was expected to be a close race throughout, with several talented athletes in the field. #1 seed Whitney Chamberlain (Sr.) of Scarborough had different thoughts, she blitzed the field right from the gun, opening up a lead in the first 50 meters, one that she wouldn't relinquish. Covering the first lap in 31.x, Chamberlain blew the race apart. The real race was for 2nd at that point and it was a good one, with Danielle Paul (Sr.) of EL, Kyia Jensen (So.) of Brunswick, Kaitlyn Noyes (Sr.) of Brewer. In the end Chamberlain would hold on, just missing the state record of 2:18.44. Paul would provide big points for her team with her runner-up finish.

Boys 800m

The boys 800m proved to be the turning point in the meet for the Scarborough Red Storm. Coming into the event they were seeded for 6 points. The pace started out in a crawl with Sam Chick (Sr.) of Scarborough leading through 400 in 64.02, with Andrew Snyder (Jr.) in tow, and the rest of the pack of Michael Brooks (Sr.) of Lawrence, James Wright (Sr.) of Scarborough, & Joey Collins (So.) of Bonny Eagle, the pace picked up a bit during the 3rd lap, but it was uncertain whether or not the pack would be able to beat the fine time posted in Raymond Richardson of Westbrook in heat 1 of 2:05.98. The last lap was epic, as Chick and Snyder waged a heavy weight battle, Chick led as they entered the back stretch and was in full stride. Snyder, quicken his stride and went by as they entered the final turn, Chick hung onto his shoulder, and as they hit the home stretch powered by on the inside all the way to the line for the win, his last lap was 28.5. Snyder finished 2nd, and Richardson scored 3rd from heat 1. In the end Scarborough scored 13 points which proved to be the difference at the end of the meet.

Boys 4x200 relay

The Boys 4x200 would be anti-climatic as the team title was wrapped up but the runner-up trophy was yet to be decided. Gorham the defending state champion at 4x200, started the relays off with a strong run, anchored by 400m champion Cam Stevens, the Rams raced around the track and posted the time to beat 1:36.45, they would have to sit and watch the next 3 heats. Brunswick the #1 team coming into the mee had to run without top sprinter Matt Hatke (So) who had to be taken to the hospital earlier in the meet with a foot injury, despite not having his services, the Dragons showed a lot of heart as they posted a strong 1:37.62, with anchor leg Brandon Swayer chasing down EL's anchor to nip them at the line. This proved to be the difference, as Brunswick would hold on for 3rd and get 6 points which pushed them into 2nd over Bonny Eagle in the team competition. Thornton Academy gave chase to Gorham's time in heat 4, but came up just short, running 1:36.87, good enough for 2nd.

The Pole Vault proved to be a tight competition this year, without the feats of last year's state record David Slovenski, who has taken his talents onto Princenton, the vault was wide open. Coming into the meet Josh Clark (Sr.) of Edward Little had been jumping his best, clearing 13-6 twice last week and winning the KVAC title. Last year's runner-up Brad Nakanishi of Scarborough, came into the meet on the other side, having no heighted at Wednesday's jump meet. Nakanishi had been battling the flu, which caused him to miss the SMAA championship meet and lose 11 pounds during his sickness. With the competiton underway, Clark looked the best out of all the jumpers, easily clearing his opening height. Nakanishi opened at 12-0 and missed his first jump, but regained his focus with a huge clearance on his next attempt. Eric O'Connor (Sr.) Windham cleared his opening height of 12-0 as well. As the bar moved up, to 13-0 four vaulters remained, Mike Slovesnki (So.) of Brunswick, O'Connor, Nakanishi, & O'Connor. Nakanishi and Clark cleared on first attempts. While O'Connor cleared on his 2nd attempt and Slovenski on his 3rd. The bar moved to 13-6, all 4 vaulters missed their first attempt, Nakanishi put the pressure of the rest of field with his 2nd attempt clearance of 13-6. Only Clark was able to respond with his 3rd jump clearance. Neither vaulter would clear 14-0, and the title would go to Nakanishi. Asked afterwards what he was thinking about after his miss at 12-0 to open the competition, Brad said "I was so nervous that I couldn't think, I just ran down planted the pole and pushed as hard as a could with my hands".

The Triple Jump was another key event for the team title. Bonny Eagle got the 10 points that Jamie Ruginski was seeded for, as he easily handled the field with his 44-4 leap, almost 2 ft. better than runner Tim Bickford of Mt. Ararat. It was the thrid individual title for Ruginski on the day. HJ champion, Sean Seekins (Sr.) of Bangor moved into third in the final round of jumps, but it was the 4-5 finish of Sarborough seniors Sam Chick & Ian Ramsdell that would secure the state championship for the Red Storm.

The boys Long Jump figured to be an easy win for Bonny Eagle senior Jamie Ruginski, who came into the meet fresh off a new 22-6 3/4 personal best at Wednesday Jump meet. With the meet record being 22-6 1/2, the chance of a new record looked good. Ruginski would live up to his #1 seed, winning the meet with a jump of 22-0, but he was pushed to the limit by Portland standout Imadhi Zagon (So.) who jumped a new personal best 21-7 for 2nd. Tim Bickford (Jr.) from Mt. Ararat had a strong day leaping out to a new personal best 20-11 1/2 good enough for 3rd. With 5 scorers returning next year the competition for first should be tight.

Like the Long Jump the Triple Jump was another key event for the team title. Edward Little took care of business with a surprise 1-2 finish, behind a huge leap from Emily Dodge 36-11 1/4, good for her 2nd individual title of the day. Teammate Ashton Hackett (Jr.) took a surprise 2nd with her PR jump of 34-11 1/2. Emilia Scheemaker gave Scarborough some points with her 3rd place jump of 34-8 1/2. EL's 19 points in the event gave them a huge boost, while Scarborough only scored 9. Another surprise was the 6th place finish of Emily Hartzell (Sr.) of Brunswick who jumped 33-8 3/4, 2 ft better than her seed.

Girls HJ

The girls High Jump record set by Jesse Labreck (5-6) set in 2008 was considered to be breakable considering the success of Caroline Summa (So.) of Cheverus, who jumped 5-6 1/4 at the SMAA championship. Unfortunately it looked as if Summa had some sort of neck injury, as she was seen with an ice bag in hand during the competition. That didn't get in the way of a great HJ competition though and Colby Gail (So.) of Mt. Ararat had her best jumping day of the season, winning the meet with her clearance of 5-4 an then upping the bar to a new pr height of 5-5, which she would clear. Summa was 2nd with a 5-2 clearance and surprise 3rd place finisher Kaitllyn Hall (So.) of TA also cleared 5-2. With the top 5 jumpers returning next year except the HJ to be a featured event in the 2010 state meet.

The girls Shot put featured the present and the future, defending champion Catie Funk (Sr.) was back to defend her title but had to face the challenge of two up and coming sophmores, Emily Morin (TA) & Randi London (Mt. Ararat). While Funk dominated the competition, throwing over 39+ ft twice, including her winning throw of 39-10 to notch her 2nd straight title, it was the two sophmores who would battle it out for 2nd, with Morin posting a new pr throw of 35-10 to nab 2nd, & London in 3rd with a throw of 34-2 1/2.
