Five Up For High School Athlete Of The Week [VOTE]
It’s time for you to help us decide again who should be the winner of this week’s McDonald’s High School Athlete of the Week. We have five great weekly performances this week for you to choose from.
Senior JJ Higgins helped the Crusaders to a second straight victory with a 32-13 victory over Waterville this past Friday. Higgins threw for three touchdown passes in the contest, including a throw of 68 yards, and added a scoring run of three yards as well. Bapst is now back at 500 on the season through four weeks and will host 3-1 Nokomis this week.
Cheyenne Beem of Dexter High School helped her team to two wins and continued their unbeaten streak for 2017. In the 10-1 win for the Tigers over Mattanawcook, Beem contributed three assists, while scoring three goals and adding on three more assists in the team’s 9-0 victory over Piscataquis last Thursday. Dexter is 7-0 on the year and one of just two unbeaten teams in Class C North in field hockey.
Foxcroft Academy QB Nick Clawson had a game to remember in the Ponies’ 45-18 victory over Bucksport on Friday night. The senior had 157 rushing yards, including two scores on the ground, while also completing five passes for 97 yards and two more scores. Clawson’s efforts helped Foxcroft to their third win and are currently at the top of the LTC standings halfway through the regular season.
Orono cross country runner Camille Kohtala won the 68th Old Town Sectional Invitational over the weekend with a time of 21:13.98. With the overall win, along with the help of her teammates, the Red Riots picked up a team victory on the girls’ meet by 16 points. Kohtala also won the meet at Central High School with a time of 20:23.60 back on September 15th.
Sophomore Connor Crawford with the Ellsworth Eagles football team helped the side pick up their first win of the season with a 28-14 victory over Houlton/Hodgdon in Week 4. Crawford had 163 rushing yards on 15 carries, including three touchdown runs. He also was solid through the air too, passing for two 2-point conversion completions in the contest.
