Once again we have Messalonskee Students making news for their tremendous accomplishments in our school and in this case, on the athletic field. Riley Field and Emily Hogan have signed their letters of intent to play field hockey at the next level, at the University of Maine and American University respectively.
The Morning Sentinel article on the signing can be found at: http://www.centralmaine.com/2015/11/11/messalonskee-teammates-took-different-paths-to-division-i-field-hockey-dreams/
Both young women were integral parts of Messalonskee’s amazing Field Hockey team this season that again fell just short of advancing to the State Championship game this fall.
Also in the news is the storybook 2nd round NCAA Playoff matchup between MHS Alum Katie and Kristy Bernatchez, in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Graduating from MHS in 2012 and 2013 respectively, both young women played a big part in building and furthering the success of the Messalonskee Field Hockey program and both were leaders not only on the athletic field but also in the classroom at MHS. The Morning sentinel did a wonderful article on the siblings and their amazing accomplishments leading up to this special matchup at UNC this Saturday (See below)
UPDATE: UNC Won the head to head and went on to finish 2nd in the nation, narrowly losing to Syracuse in the NCAA championship 2-4.
Not to be out-done by his big Sisters, senior Jack Bernatchez was featured by the Portland Press Herald as a contender for the coveted James J. Fitzpatrick Trophy, one of the highest honors in Maine Football.
So many amazing things happening at MHS in performances, on stage, in concert, through volunteerism, on the athletic fields, and in the classroom. Please do share the great stories about our Messalonskee students and alumni and help us celebrate their many tremendous accomplishments!
