This week's nominees are Bangor's Damien Vance, Hermon's Isaac Varney, Skowhegan's Marcus Christopher, Bangor's Nick Boudreau, Hampden's Bailey Donovan and MDI's Hannah Chamberlain.
Here's how each athlete performed last week
Isaac Varney of Hermon led the Hawks with 17 points in last Thursday's 59-41 triumph over the Orono Red Riots. The junior forward added eight points in Saturday's 59-42 win against Ellsworth, which improved the defending Class B champions to 8-0.
Bangor guard Damien Vance scored 18 points in the Rams' 53-49 victory over Thornton Academy in Saco on Friday night. Vance hit a corner three with 35 seconds remaining to help seal the win for Bangor. He added 16 points and six rebounds in the Rams' 53-47 loss to Oxford Hills last Wednesday, Bangor's first loss of the season.
Bailey Donovan of Hampden Academy posted 15 points in the Broncos' 52-28 win over Nokomis last Wednesday. Donovan, MVP of the Class A North tournament in 2018, has picked up where she left off last season. The 6-3 senior scored 26 points against Lawrence on Dec. 14 and 22 against Brewer on Dec. 21.
Nick Boudreau of the Bangor hockey team tallied a hat trick in the Rams' 7-2 triumph over arch-rival Brewer in the annual Fill the Alfond game at Alfond Arena. He also assisted on a Bangor goal in Saturday's win. Boudreau and David Brown lead the team with eight goals apiece this season.
Hannah Chamberlain of MDI chipped in 17 points in Saturday's 44-38 win over Oceanside. MDI knocked down eight triple in the win, including five from Chamberlain. The 5-6 senior added 15 points in the Trojans 67-36 triumph over Presque Isle on Dec. 28.
Skowhegan's Marcus Christopher scored a game-high 26 points in the Indians' 49-44 loss to the Brewer Witches on Wednesday night. Brewer had no answer for Christopher, who dominated in the low post, scoring with ease and repeatedly getting to the free throw line.
