EMITL Girls shot put finals podium

Camden Lavoie of Bangor topped the competition in the EMITL league shot put finals that featured the top sixteen girls throwers from the regular season competitions this winter. Lavoie tossed a state-leading 37-8 to finish in first. A year ago she finished fourth in the Class A state meet and ninth in the New England Championship.

" I am very happy with the outcome of the championship. I'm proud of all the other girls, and I'm glad to say I got my season's best at this meet! I look forward to staying consistent with our training and get in the weight room more and I cannot wait for spring season to come." Lavoie told Maine MileSplit.

Brewer sophomore Karessa Anderson finished second with a 32-2 toss just off her personal best. The Witches freshman Claire Henry came up big with a 31-4 3/4 toss to improve on her previous best of 28-8 1/2. Old Town's Chelsey Cote improved by over a foot to place fourth with a 31-0 3/4 effort while Morgan Martin of Brewer earned a spot on the podium with a 30-10 1/2 toss for fifth place. Mt Desert's Island's Logan Closson finished sixth with a 29-7 personal best effort

EMITL Boys shot put finals podium

Bangor senior Maxxwell Smith improved over four feet over his previous season-best mark in the shot put to take first place with a personal best 47-8 1/2 mark, the throw is the top throw in the state this winter.

"It was an awkward season, we only got a couple of weeks of practice, and having missed last outdoor season I came in rusty. I was fouling all my throws and I could only count on my standing throw to stay in. As I got a little bit of practice in it started coming together and the one throw at that meet was the best technical throw I had done. I'm hoping to get it down consistently during outdoor and I'm shooting for the moon." Smith told Maine MileSplit

Mt Desert Island senior Archer Hill recorded the second-best throw of the season with his runner-up effort of 45-5 3/4 while Jacob Smith posted a personal best 41-10 1/4 to finish third. Another Brewer Witch was in fourth as Dylan Greenlaw tossed it 41-3 for his first time over forty feet. Old Town's Duane Tibbetts scored a fifth-place mark with his 40-7 1/4 effort and Ethan Harkins of MDI rounded out the podium finishers with a 40-1 toss.
