Ellsworth Center Named Athlete of the Week
A record number of votes were submitted for the McDonald's Athlete of the Week with Ellsworth's Bruce St. Peter taking home the weekly prize.The Ellsworth center collected over 1,200 votes which was enough to beat out Kolleen Bouchard of Houlton who just over 750 and Taylor Shildroth of George Stevens Academy who finished with over 650 votes.
St. Peter had an eventful week at the tourney scoring 15 points in the quarterfinals and 10 in the semifinals which included the game winning basket at the buzzer in overtime. In the title game, he scored 19 points and had a dunk that seemed to provide the spark the Eagles needed to beat Orono.
