Tennis Update #2:

A huge congratulations to BOTH the Boy’s and Girl’s Varsity Tennis teams on capturing the Class C State Championship this past Saturday. Both teams defeated George Stevens Academy 5-0. This is the Boy’s 10th straight championship (matching Falmouth Girl’s for a state record), and a special win for the Seniors on the Girl’s team—they were also champions as freshmen! It’s their 5th title in the past 7 years. Congrats on amazing seasons!

 

Tennis Update! (older updates below)

Congrats to BOTH the Boy’s and Girl’s Tennis teams for winning the Class C South Championship at Bates on Thursday! Both teams will head to Colby on Saturday for the Class C State Championships. The Girl’s beat defending champs St. Dominic Academy 4-1, and the Boy’s beat Boothbay 5-0.

This is the 10th straight regional championship for the Boy’s team, and they are hoping to add a 10th straight State Championship to their long list of accomplishments! This year, the Boy’s team was also awarded the 2017 MPA Sportsmanship Award for Class C South.

Good luck to both teams on Saturday! They will each face George Stevens Academy at 1pm on Saturday 6/10 at 1:00pm. Go Flyers!

Playoff Updates! 

Boy’s and Girl’s Tennis head to Class C South finals Thursday, June 8 at Bates. If they win, both teams will head to Colby on Saturday, June 10 for the Class C Finals.

The girls are led by tri-captains Lexi Epstein ’17, Kiera Macwhinnie ’17, and Randall Seder ’17. All three of these seniors have had stellar seasons, especially Epstein dominating in the #1 singles slot, and Macwhinnie bouncing back from an injury to play singles for the first time, sliding comfortably into the #2 slot.

The boys are led by captain Brandon Ameglio ’17 and senior John van Dyke. Ameglio has been a force as the #1 singles player, even making the semifinals of the State Singles Tournament (the first time an unranked player has done this since 2013). Boy’s Tennis is gunning for their 10th straight championship!

Girl’s Varsity Lacrosse lost a hard-fought game against Cape Elizabeth on Wednesday, June 7th. It was an amazing season for them, as veteran coach Cathie Connors took the young team to the playoffs, a feat she has accomplished almost every single season since she began coaching! Check out the full story of the game here.
