BANGOR — The short, yet warm summer wasn’t quite ready to dissipate Friday as five KVAC teams gathered at Bangor High School for the first cross-country meet of the season. The warm temperatures proved to be no issue for Sam Nisbett, Sara Chavarie, the Hampden Academy boys and Brewer High girls. Nisbett and Chavarie captured individual crowns while the Broncos and Witches each nabbed team honors. Hampden outdistanced Bangor 29 points to 53, tucking four runners in the top 10. Waterville scored 74 points to finish third while Lawrence was fourth with 96 and Brewer fifth with 114. The reigning Eastern Maine Class A champion Brewer girls, led by Chavarie’s first-place finish, tallied 29 points while Hampden finished second with 52 and Bangor third with 54. Lawrence and Waterville each scored 113, but the Bulldogs from Fairfield were awarded fourth place on the sixth-runner tiebreaker.
