Winter Season Sports Update
While most of the Waynflete student body was on vacation during February break, a number of student athletes were busy competing. Following is the round up of the action.
Boys basketball fell to the #2 seed Dirigo Cougars on Friday to end an excellent season at 16 wins and 2 losses. The boys were conference champions for the fourth straight year. Congratulations to Maine McDonalds Senior all-Stars for Class C/D: Helen Gray-Bauer and Harry Baker-Connick.
