SB Report: The Cory and Shawn Award (Best Male Duo)

The Cory and Shawn Award is given annually to the top male duo in the state


And the winner is….


Liam Simpson and Peter Doane Cape Elizabeth

It’s always a luxury to have two of the top runners in you Class on the same team. That is what Cape Elizabeth had this year with Liam Simpson and Peter Doane. These two runners switched off numerous times throughout the season, and pushed each other to greatness which led to Cape’s first state title since 2005. Both Simpson and Doane continued to step up their game once the post season rolled around. It was Doane who led the way for Cape at the Western Maine Regional Championships with his third place finish running a time of 17:28.20, and right on his heels was Simpson placing fourth running a time of 17:31.31. They flip flopped at the state meet with Simpson placing fifth running 16:55.42 and Doane following closely with a ninth place finish running 17:03.29. These two studs will be back next year, and will lead a loaded Cape Elizabeth team looking for a second straight title.
