The Waterville Senior High School indoor track and field teams have the numbers and the talent to contend for Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B titles.

So, too, does Winslow, which means one thing: The KVAC B indoor track and field championships are shaping up to be quite an event.

“It’s interesting,” Winslow coach Bob Morison said. “The rivalry is still very strong.

The KVAC A and B championships are Saturday at Bowdoin College, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Waterville and Winslow are the top contenders for both KVAC B titles. Mt. Ararat, Brunswick and Edward Little will contend for the KVAC A titles.

“I feel pretty confident that we have enough people in events to score enough points to challenge to win,” Waterville coach Ian Wilson said. “We feel we have a strong team. But Winslow has a strong team for both the boys and girls. We’ll try to put up as many points as possible.”

There are several intriguing events Saturday.

WInslow senior Dominic Sintetos and Waterville senior Isaiah Spofford will renew their rivalry in a few sprinting events, including the 55-meter dash and 200.

The two squared off earlier this month, with Spofford winning both events.

“That will be an interesting matchup,” Morison said. “It’s going to come down to matchups.”

Added Wilson: “They have a really good sprinter in Sintetos. He’s really good but he happens to be in shadow of Spofford. In any other year he would be phenomenal.”

The Waterville boys also hope for strong performances from Alex Rowe (hurdles, triple jump) and Devin Burgess (pole vault).

Burgess enters seeded behind Winslow’s Ryan Turner, who recently cleared 12 feet, 6 inches.

“The pole vault will be a good matchup as well,” Morison said.

On the girls side, Olivia Thurston (200, hurdles), Bethany Brown (two-mile), Georgia Bolduc (55-meter dash) and Emily Sakal (shot put) lead a deep and talented Waterville team. Christine Parrilli (long jump) and Molly Schassberger (two-mile) should also produce well for the Raiders.

Meaghan Collier of Messalonskee should contend in the 800 and mile. Lawrence senior Sarah Quimby enters as a high seed in the high jump.

Cony sophomore Lindsey Folsom is the defending Class A state champ in the pole vault. She will once again compete against Edward Little junior Jaclyn Masters.

Masters defeated Folsom in a KVAC A meet Jan. 22 at Bowdoin College when she cleared 11 feet. Furthermore, Masters defeated Folsom in the pole vault at the KVAC A outdoor meet last spring.

“I really want to beat her this year,” Folsom said. “Eleven feet is pretty much where I want to go.”
