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 six great weekly performances this week for you to choose from.
Foxcroft Academy quarterback Nick Clawson helped the Ponies to a 40-0 win over Mattanawcook Academy last week, as well as the top seed in Class D North. Clawson ran for 157 yards on the ground and scored three rushing TDs. He also threw five completions for 90 yards and had a passing score. FA is now 6-2 on the season and will receive a bye in the first round of the LTC playoffs.
Skowhegan captain Julia Steeves had a big week in the Class A North Field Hockey playoffs for her side. She logged five goals in a quarterfinal victory versus Edward Little, and then knocked in a crucial goal versus Cony in a 4-1 win in the semifinals. With the two playoff wins, Skowhegan is now 15-1 on the year and will face Messalonskee on Tuesday night for a North championship.
Bryant Kiley of the Brewer Witches football team had a nice night as his team ended the regular season on a high note with a 34-26 win against Brunswick. On the night, Kiley ran the ball 29 times for 151 yards and contributed two vital scores in the game for the Witches. Brewer finished the season with a 4-4 record and will face Messalonskee in the first round of the Class B North playoffs.
Freshman cross country runner Olivia Tiner of Winslow High School won the regional title in Class B North over the weekend. She took home the title with a time of 19:38.47 in the race, a full 20 seconds faster than the next closest racer in her class. Tiner placed fifth overall in the North region championship in all classes in Belfast on Saturday, and the Black Raiders finished in sixth place overall.
Sophomore Connor Crawford of Ellsworth High School led the Eagles to a 48-12 victory over Washington Academy, and more importantly a playoff appearance for the team for the first time in program history. Crawford ran the ball 20 times for 209 yards, including four touchdowns, as well as completing three out of four passes for 38 yards and a passing score. He also logged two solo tackles and had a fumble recovery in the contest. The 4-4 Eagles have won three straight and will face Dexter in the LTC playoffs this weekend.

Williams had 3 goals and an assist in a 7-0 quarterfinal win over Hermon and then notched two goals in the semifinal round against Belfast.
