June 23, 2016 - Cam Cox Among top Finishers in the New England Interscholastic Golf Championship
The 2016 New England Interscholastic Boys and Girls Golf Championships were held on Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at Bretwood Golf Course in Keene, NH, which seems like an odd time to hold a Championship, especially for Maine golfers whose high school season is in the fall. That didn't weem to effect the Maine contingent including Mt Ararat's Cam Cox who shot a 77 (five over par) to finish 17th. Cam was the third Maine finisher behind MCI's Eric Dugas (73 - 2nd) and Logan Tompson (74-6th) from Mattanawcook Academy (where?).
Sixty-one golfers competed in the event. Click here for complete results.

June 8, 2016 - Eagles Lose Heart Breaker, 1-0 To Messalonskee
It was definitely the best game the Eagles (that would be the Messalonskee Eagles vs the Mt Ararat Eagles) have played this year. It was a heart breaker for Mt Ararat. Mt Ararat, who had lost 11-0 to Messalonskee earlier in the season, faced #1 seeded Messalonskee who finished the season 15-1 in the quarter finals.
Alana Weaver, who was on the mound for the Eagles, matched Messalonskee's ace hurler Kristen Pelletier pitch for pitch through out the game. The difference came in the bottom of the fifth when Messalonskee's Katie Guarino smacked a solo home run for the game winning hit.
Zoe Stilphen led off the game with a single. The Eagles, who knew they needed runs against Pelletier, sent Zoe on a steal attempt, but she was thrown out when Messalonskee's Taylor Easler threw a strike to Sierra McClellan who applied the tag to eliminate Zoe. Messalonskee's Madisyn Charest also led off with a single. But Alana Weaver retired the next three batters.
Kate Guerin had a two out single for the Eagles in the second, but she was stranded. Meanwhile, Alana put Messalonskee down 1-2-3 in the second. Both pitchers continued to post zeros in the run column. Messalonskee's MacKenzie Charest had single in the third and the Eagles' Kayleigh Temple singled in the 4th, but both pitchers worked around those blemishes with no problem.
In the bottom of the fifth, Messalonskee's Katie Guarino connected for a solo home run. It was all Messalonskee needed. Both pitchers finished strong. Alana wound up the tough luck loser allowing five hits and, of course, zero walks. Messalonskee's Pelletier allowed three hits, struck out 8, walked 2 and hit a batter.
June 11, 2016 - Eagles Battle to the End, Lose 5-4 to Eddies
The Eagles battled throughout the game, twice coming back from deficits, to tie the game 4-4 heading into the final frame. The Eddies retired the Eagles 1-2-3 in the top of the seventh and Edward Little rallied and pushed the winning run across the plate on a bases loaded walk.
The Eddies scored two runs in the first inning. The Eagles cut that lead in half in the top of the second when Jake O'Neill drove in Sam Alexander, who had doubled. The Eddies put another deuce on the board in the bottom of the inning to take a 4-1 lead. Harper Moutal came on in relief of Ryan Glass in the third, and set down the first nine batters he faced keeping the Eagles in the game until their bats would come alive.
In the sixth, the Eagles got some base runners when Ryan Mello reached on an error and Harper Moutal was hit by a pitch. Jake O'Neill laced a gapper to left center for two bases that plated Mello and left the Eagles with two runners in scoring position. A wild pitch and a throwing error delivered Moutal and moved O'Neill to third. Garrett Moody drove in the tieing run with a fielder's choice.
In the bottom of the seventh, Moutal, who had pitched well, walked the lead-off batter and Coach Neron went to Kaileb Hawkes. Hawkes retired the first two batters he faced. He then intentionally walked the Eddies clean up hitter, Drew Lashua. A single to right by C. J. Jipson loaded the bases. Then, with the count 3-2, Kaileb Hawkes delivered the pay-off pitch to Grant Hartley who took ball four on a very close pitch to force in the winning run.
June 11, 2016 - Messalonskee Eliminates Eagles 12-1
The Eagles season came to an end as top-seeded Messalonskee controlled play throughout the game. Messalonskee scored five goals in the first six minutes of the game and didn't take their foot of the pedal until they had amassed a 10-0 lead at the half.
Roni Pelletier had the only goal for the Eagles whose offense was limited to two shots for the entire game.
June 11, 2016 - New England Championship

May 31, 2016 - Eagles Scuttle Shipbuilders, 21-2
It was Senior Night at Fournier Field and Coach Haskell honored his Seniors in a pre-game ceremony. And with the game being a romp early, everybody got some serious playing time.
It's been a lean season for the Eagles, so you have to excuse them if they left the feed bag on and lingered at the buffet table perhaps a little too long. But when it's your last game, all rules of etiquette are off the table.
The Eagles won the opening face-off (one of the few they would win throughout the night as Morse's Pat McKenna was consistently winning them) and Mark Abreu got the first shot off. Morse's goalie, Sebastian Tibbetts, made a nice save. The Eagles then went on a scoring binge. Sophomore Owen Kelly scored his first two varsity goals to open the scoring and made it look easy. The Eagles then went on a goal a minute scoring spree. First, it Nick Cantor (3 goals, 2 assists), then Sawyer Watson (4 goals), Nick again, Owen again, Connor Brown (2 goals), and Sawyer again. With 36 seconds left in the quarter, Morse got on the board on a nice play set up by Declan Hall and scored by Spencer Knowles.
The Eagles started to work on good ball movement and running their plays in the second quarter. But with the Eagles down a man, Spenser Knowles scored another Morse goal off a similar set up from Declan Hall. Morse's Sebastian Tibbetts came up with a couple of nice saves, before Steven Schuman, using the leverage of his long stick, scored on an Eagles man-up situation. Sawyer Watson scored on a nice pass from Nick Cantor, and Jason Magno (5 goals, 1 assist) got on the board when he converted a Steven Schuman pass to close out the first half with the Eagles leading 11-2.
It's always fun to watch Jason Magno wind up and fire. You never know where the ball is going. He probably doesn't either, but then again neither does the opposing goalie. Jason was on tonight as he scored the next four goals all on his patented sidearm sling shot. The Eagles onslaught continued. Andrew Waltz joined the scoring parade. With the clock running because of the mercy rule, the Eagles worked to get defenseman Jacob Steinman a goal. The strategy paid off when Jake showed all the moves of a accomplished attack man, and beat the Morse goalie with 48 seconds left.

Nick Mathhieu places a winner at the net
May 30, 2016 - Nick Mathieu Boys State Singles Champion
It was everything you would expect in a Championship match. Two very talented players, the Eagles' Nick Mathieu and Falmouth's Alex Klemperer, squared off against each other in a match reminiscent of Borg vs Connors, Lendl vs MacEnroe, Nadal vs Djokovic and Federer vs everyone. Nick won the first set 6-4, but lost the second set 4-6 to set up a pivotal third set. Nick had plenty left in his arsenal of shotsas he put the match away in the final set 6-2. It was the first time this year that Nick has played a third set. As State runner-up the past two years, this victory had to be especially sweet for Nick.
May 30, 2016 - Singles Championship Semi Finals
For the third straight year, it's on to the Class A finals for Nick Mathieu. Nick was put to the test against Cape Elizabeth's Michael Mills.

Todd Sampson (when he was younger)
Thank You and Good Luck, Todd Sampson
Has it really only been 3-1/2 years since Todd Sampson came to Mt Ararat? He has done so much in such a short time. He is equally admired and respected by students and administrators and, believe me, that is no easy trick.
We knew we had a winner when we saw him serving as a ball boy during freshman Soccer games. That opinion was confirmed when we saw him jump a fence to retrieve a ball during a game. By the end of his tenure, he had Middle School ball boys and ball girls waiting in line to serve. Those kids have always been willing, you just needed to take the time to ask them. Todd treated all sports equally and he was seen at every venue supporting his athletes. He brought numerous KVAC events, never seen previously, to Mt Ararat including Wrestling Tournaments, Cheering Competitions, Field Hockey Tournaments, Topsham Rec Track Meets as well as crowd-pleasing and attendance-increasing half time acts such as the Woodside One Wheelers. Everything he did enhanced the athletic programs of the Eagles.
The Athletic Director position is a time consuming job, if you do it right. Todd, you did it right. Good luck in your new job at Edward Little, try to come up with an answer to "What's an Eddie?", and enjoy more time with your family. We'll see you around the campus.
