Jorden Mitchell of South Berwick (Marshwood), a freshman forward at Wheaton College, shared game-high scoring honors with 11 points in an 82-37 win against Mount Ida on Sunday. Mitchell added four rebounds and a block as Wheaton improved to 2-2.

Mitchell is averaging 5.0 points and 3 rebounds in just over 10 minutes a game.


Keegan Goan of Westbrook won all nine of his individual events as Elms College's men's swim team is 3-0 this year.

A junior, Goan won both the 50 and 100 butterfly three times, with two wins in the 100 individual medley and a win in the 200 IM. He was part of Elms' 200 medley relay team that set a school and pool record against Colby-Sawyer.

Bentley University freshman diver Nicola Mancini of Falmouth was named the Northeast-10 Rookie of the Week for her efforts in a dual meet against UMass-Dartmouth.

She exceeded the NCAA Division II qualifying standards for a second straight meet in both the one-meter and three-meter boards. Mancini was coming off a school-record 294.1 score on the three-meter against Brandeis.


Colby College senior John Gilboy of Saco (Thornton Academy) was named to the Capital One Academic All-District 1 Football Team on Wednesday. Gilboy is now eligible for the Capital One Academic All-America team.

On the field, Gilboy, a co-captain, earned NESCAC Second Team honors for a second year as an offensive guard.

Colby's top thrower in track and field, Gilboy was also named to a NESCAC All-Academic team for the seventh time in the past three years (3.35 GPA or above while earning a varsity letter). He is majoring in biochemistry.

Patrick Tyler of Cape Elizabeth recently completed his sophomore season as the Assumption College punter. Tyler averaged 35.8 yards per punt, with a long of 54 yards and 12 kicks inside the opponents' 20 as Assumption went 3-7.

Sophomore defensive back Liam Hobbins of Saco (Cheverus) was credited with eight tackles and appeared in all 10 games for Assumption. Cape Elizabeth freshman offensive lineman Andrew Lavallee played in eight games, at times lining up as a fullback.


Charlie Dupee of Portland (Deering), a sophomore on the Colby College men's soccer team, was named to the NESCAC All-Academic team.

He was joined on the team by junior Nate Tolman of Scarborough. Dupee had three goals and started twice this year. Tolman started all 14 games for the Mules, who went 4-8-2.


Shelby Bryant of South Portland (Catherine McAuley) scored four goals and made three starts for the University of Maine-Farmington team that went 11-7-1.

Bryant missed five games due to a concussion suffered against Maine Maritime after she had scored the winning goal.


Colby College first-year cross country runner Stefan Sandreuter of Cumberland (Greely) was named to the NESCAC Fall All-Sportsmanship team.

Of the 86 student-athletes honored, Sandreuter was one of two first-years.
