Mt Ararat hosted the annual Under the Lights track meet. The meet serves a dual purpose. It acts as a last chance qualifier for racers whose times do not qualify for the KVAC Championship and it give the athletes a chance to compete against other athletes closer to their own abilities. Athletes who may not have placed at any regular season meet get a chance to enjoy the limelight.
This year there were several Eagles who qualified for the Championship in this race. Kaitlyn Volk ran a PR to win the 800 Meters, Abbey Morgan won the Javelin with a PR to qualify and Jesse Doyle (6) also qualified in the Javelin. For the Boys, Eric French knocked almost 30 seconds off his tie to win the 3200 with a qualifying time and Matthew Donovan qualified in the 200 Meters.
There were several other gratifying efforts. For the Girls, Josie Miller, whose times have decreased steadily throughout the year, ran a PR in the 200 to finish 9th. She was followed by Ashley Parker (10), Emily McCracken (12), Maddison Leckbee (19), and Angel Ortiz (20), whose times have also improved steadily over the course of the season. Maddison Leckbee also finished a strong fourth in the 400. Additionally, Josie Miller and Heather Diver had solid 100 Meter races. Heather also PRed in the Long Jump and Josie landed some solid leaps also.
Haley Frizzle continues to impress with her speed and strength. Haley finished 3rd in the 100, 3rd in the Shot Put, and 6th in the Discus. Maranda Burgess is another multi-talented athlete with speed and strength. Maranda finished 11th in the 100, 8th in the Shot, and 19th in the Discus. Rachel Eggleston set a couple of PRs in the Shot and Javelin. And Kodie Crane has a bright future in the Discus.
Camille Woods set a couple of personal bests as she ran her season best races in both the 800 and 1600 Meters. Angel Ortiz and Rachel Eggleston finished 5-6 in the 1600 Racewalk. The Girls finished 1-2-4 in the Pole Vault with Emily McCracken clearing 7-00, Ashley Parker 6-06, and Maddison Leckbee 6-00.
The Boys have a strong contingent of freshman sprinters. Tommy Leslie and Tom Dau ran 4-5 and Matthew Donovan finished 11th in the 100. In the 200, it was Matthew Donovan finishing 3rd followed by Tommy Leslie (4) and Tom Dau (11). Josh Morgan won the 300 Hurdles. Other sprinters who ran well include Mikhail Parra, Kelton Rose, Edwin Ickes-Coon, and Dalton Streeter. Both Sam Gatchall and Hunter Beebe ran PRs in the 200 Meters.
In the Distances, Cyrus Warren ran a season best to place 3rd. Colin Ingalls (14) set a PR and Aaron Hyde finished 15th. Matt Schott ran a strong 800 as the only Eagles competitor in that event.
In the Field events, Hunter Beebe won the High Jump. Vaultin' Dalton Streeter, who had qualified previously in both the Long Jump and Triple Jump showed why with a 2nd place finish in the Triple and a 3rd place finish in the Long Jump. Cyrus Warren and Josh Morgan also had good jumps. Kelton Rose and Edwin Ickes-Coon continued to improve in the strength events as did Sam Gatchall in the Shot Put.
The Eagles exploded for seven runs in the opening frame and Rhiannon Hersey was untouchable on the mound as the Eagles cruised to a 13-0 win. Rhiannon did not allow a hit in the four inning, mercy-rule shortened game. She walked two and hit a batter. Meanwhile the Eagles took advantage of ten walks issued by the Brunswick pitchers. The K-Girls - Kayleigh Temple, Katelyn Cox, and Kate Guerin - provided the majority of the offense. Katelyn Cox had a double and triple with two RBIs. Kate Guerin drove in three runs with her two hits, and Kayleigh also had two hits and two RBIs.
May 26, 2015 - Dragons Overpower Eagles, 6-1
Brunswick's John Parker pitched a three-hit, complete game while striking out 15. Kevin Carter pitched well for the Eagles with a complete game. It was a close game through six innings before Brunswick put the game away with two runs in the top of the seventh.
The Eagles squandered a chance in the second after Liam Brannigan scorched a one-out line drive double to right. He advanced to third on a balk, but the Eagles couldn't bring him home. Brunswick opened the scoring with a pair of unearned runs in the third. The Eagles played some small ball of their own to scratch out a run in the 4th. Kevin Carter was hit by a pitch and went to second on a passed ball. He advanced to third on an infield single by Liam Brannigan and came home on Mason Griffin's RBI fielder's choice.
Brunswick added a pair of runs in the 5th and 7th. A line shot double by Nick Merrill in the seventh went for naught as Parker bore down and recorded his 15th strike out for the final out.
May 22, 2015 - Dragons Overpower Eagles, 15-5
Brunswick showed why they are ranked # 1 with a convincing 15-5 win over the Eagles. The Dragons excelled in every phase of the game with aggressive defense, quick transitions, and great offensive ball movement. T J Sullivan led the Dragons with 4 goals. Kyle Woodruff, Cam Glover, and Jameson Cyr all had 2 goals for the Dragons with Owen Guinty, Matt Brooks, and Tyler Hills scoring 1 each.
For the Eagles, Ben Bishop, Eliot Pressman, Kellen Radulski, Nick Cantor, and Jake Schoenberg all scored with Kyle Lussier and Jason Magno picking up assists.
May 22, 2015 - Eagles Roll Over Oxford Hills, 15-5
The Girls continued to use their multi-faceted offense and strong defense to subdue Oxford Hills 15-5. This time it was Rebecca (She's only) Schuman who paced the offense with four goals. Katie Labbay continued her scoring binge with three more goals (seven in the last two games). Alyssa Curit and Alison Nolan tallied 2 apiece while Erin Tome, Ronni Pelletier, Shannon Harty and Isa Blessington each added a goal. Eleanor Skinner and Vanessa Balsar split time in the net for the Eagles.
May 21, 2015 - Eagles Cruise Past Dragons, 16-4
Five goals by sophomore Emily Welch and four goals by senior Katie Labbay helped the Eagles to a decisive 16-4 win over the Dragons in Brunswick. The Dragons, who lost to the Eagles earlier in the season 15-3, were hoping to gain a measure of revenge in the cross-town rivalry, but the Eagles well-balanced attack continued it efficient display of offense. Alison Nolan (2 goals), Alyssa Curit, Erin Tome, Rebecca Schuman, Isa Blessington and Shannon Hart also scored for the Eagles. Eleanor Skinner and Vanessa Balser split time between the pipes for the Eagles and combined for 8 saves.
The Eagles exploded for seven runs in the opening frame and Rhiannon Hesrsey was untouchable on the mound as the Eagles cruised to a 13-0 win. Rhinannon did not allow a hit in the four inning, mercy-rule shortened game. She walked two and hit a batter. Meanwhile the Eagles took advantage of ten walks issued by the Brunswick pitchers. The K-Girls - Kayleigh Temple, Katelyn Cox, and Kate Guerin - provided the majority of the offense. Katelyn Cox had a double and triple with two RBIs. Kate Guerin drove in three runs with her two hits, and Kayleigh also had two hits and two RBIs.
Nick Mathieu follows through on his backhand
The Eagles quietly put together an 11-1 season. Even during the Mike Hill era, the Eagles never finished the regular season with such a gaudy record. Their only defeat came at the hands of Brunswick in an early season match, but the Eagles avenged that loss in their second meeting. Nick Mathieu led the Eagles, which was no surprise, given his ranking as one of the best players in the state. But it was the emergence of Peter Mao that propelled the Eagles. Peter started out playing #3, but eventually worked up to the #2 spot. He went undefeated for the season. The Eagles had two players who went undefeated for the season. Trevor Mayo also had an outstanding season losing only one match the entire season. So that means the Eagles Singles players won 35 of 36 matches this season! Nick Mathieu won an incredible 144 games vs only 9 losses. Trevor Mayo won 144 games vs only 39 losses, and Peter Mao recorded 137 wins vs only 50 losses.
The Doubles team of Jon Roux and Mike Crawford won 7 of 11 matches and three of the losses they suffered went to the tie-breaker in three sets. Their performance in the playoffs will go a long way to how far the Eagles can advance as a team. Joey Reed and Leonardo Madeiros also enjoyed a modicum of success and could surprise in the playoffs. First time players Will Goller and Leo Eichfeld showed steady improvement over the course of the season.
