It was an amazing season, and the Flyers were proud of their final results: Class C Southern Regional Championship, Class C State Runner-Up, and recipients of The Sportsmanship Award. It’s also very noteworthy that some girls on the team have won the award 3 seasons in a row: last year’s basketball and lacrosse, and this fall’s soccer team.
Boy’s Soccer lost on the second round of penalty kicks to the #2 seed Lisbon after playing 110 minutes of scoreless soccer. The boys finish the season at 8-6-2.
Field had another great season, joining forces with Maine Girl’s Academy (formerly Catherine McAuley). It was very competitive field this year, and the team finished 0-13-1. Captains Kiera MacWhinnie, Semhar Yehdego, and Emma Spies (of MGA) were very proud the effort this season.
Both Boy’s and Girls Cross Country placed 2nd in Class C Regionals, both qualifying for the State Meet in Belfast. St. Dom’s won the girls title and Maine Coast Waldorf took the boys.
