Cross Country Running
Although we’re a small school, we field an impressive cross-country running team. Coached by Morgan Lake Adams, team members compete in local Western Maine Conference (WMC) high school meets, as well as Regional and State meets. Here are a few highlights of our recent successes:
- 2014: Boys Class C State Champs, Girls in Top 10
- 2013: Both Boys and Girls, Top 10 Class C State Championships
- 2010 and 2011: Girls Class C State Champs
"The Little School that Skis Big"
The phrase above was used by the judges at the State awards ceremony to describe our Nordic ski team, who benefit from practicing on campus at Pineland Farms, one of the best cross-country ski venues in Maine. Coached by John Tarling, a top masters skier in the Maine Nordic community and twice named as the Portland Press Herald's Coach of the Year, our girls’ team has won the Class C State Championships for five years running and the boys team for three!
At Maine Coast, we take our frisbee seriously. Coached by Rich Young, president of Maine Ultimate, our co-ed team is on the cutting edge of this growing sport.
In Ultimate, team members make their own calls, relying on close cooperation between players on both sides rather than on referees. This cooperative element of the game, combined with its hard-playing style, makes it a good fit for our school, where sportsmanship and athleticism go hand-in-hand.
Our Ultimate team has been the proud recipient of multiple Spirit Awards for good sportsmanship over the past few years.
