Noah carried the ball 33 times for 307 yards and 6 touchdowns on the way to a 43-27 over Old Town. The senior also had two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown.

Hannah Steelman of Orono High School (cross-country) finished 2nd out of 693 female runners at this weekend's Festival of Champions in Belfast. Her time of 19:03 was her PR and it was the 22nd fastest in the history of the event. She was the fastest sophomore, and she was the first finisher from the state of Maine. Her performance helped lead the Red Riots to a second place finish in the FOC, which consisted of 58 teams.
