The Windham boys are coming on a 8th place finish at the Class A state meet last fall. The Eagles return 5 of their top 7 from a year ago, plus have added some top freshman into the mix. Windham is primed for their best finish in state meet in a long time this fall.
Leading the way this fall wll be senior Nathan Skvorak who was the Eagles top finisher (22nd) in the state meet last fall. Skvorak had a strong outdoor track season, and opened his season with a runner finish at the Lake Region Invitational, leading his team to victory. Also leading the charge will be junior Jonathan Bland (39th) in the state meet last year. Other returning state meet scorers are junior Stephen Lailer (71st) & sophomore Reese Preston (75th)
With the addition off freshman Ben Breton & Jeremy Bennett Windam has some talented youth, the duo finished 2nd & 3rd for the Eagles at the opening season LR Invitational. Breton was 5th (16:14) & Bennett (8th) 16:43. Also look for senior Patrick Laliberte to contribute.
Windham has all the piece to have a stellatr season, they should be one of the top teams in the SMAA & Western Maine Regional, a top 5 finish at the state meet is well within reach.
Coach Riddle says:
"Due to the philosophy of our program, and Windham Athletics, we are proud of the fact that all of our athletes contribute to our program in many ways. From the scoring perspective we have two new freshman boys who will showcase their abilities and readiness to help lead our team in some exciting races. Freshman Ben Breton and Jeremy Bennett will give our boys team the depth needed to assist us in reaching our set goals. We also have many other additions to the team who are improving daily and may break into the top group within some future timeline, tbd."
