Windham High School


FAVORITES: Bonny Eagle, Brewer, Scarborough. The Scots will contend for their second state title in three years. At the SMAA championships, Bonny Eagle outdistanced Cheverus for the league title, relying on a late-meet push to capture the championship.

WATCH OUT FOR: Edward Little, which won the KVAC Class A championship and has one of the state’s top 110-meter hurdlers in Michael Lucas.

ATHLETES TO WATCH: McKenzie Gary, junior, Mt. Ararat (100, 200, 400, long jump); Jack Terwilliger, senior, Cheverus (800, 1,600, 3,200); Tyson Goodale, sophomore, Bonny Eagle (110 hurdles, long jump, triple jump).


FAVORITES: Scarborough, Edward Little and Bangor have become the annual favorites on the basis of team size and depth. Scarborough, the defending champion, and Edward Little have combined to win the last five Class A titles.

WATCH OUT FOR: Cheverus, a distance-heavy team that took second place at last week’s SMAA championships by 1.5 points.

ATHLETES TO WATCH: Maria Curit, senior, Biddeford (200, 400, long jump); Teal Jackson, sophomore, Brewer (200, 400); Abbey Leonardi, junior, Kennebunk (1,600, 3,200).

Cony High School, Augusta


FAVORITES: Falmouth, Greely, Waterville. Falmouth is the two-time defending Class B champion, but chances are that this year’s meet will be a foot race to the finish, as it seems most Class B championships are decided.

WATCH OUT FOR: Old Town. Boosted by hurdler/jumper Jake Leithiser, the Coyotes have enough depth to make an impact at the state meet.

ATHLETES TO WATCH: Michael Burgess, senior, Greely (shot put, discus, javelin); Isaiah Spofford, senior, Waterville (long jump, 100, 200); Jack Peters, senior, Gray-New Gloucester (100, 200, 300 hurdles, triple jump).


FAVORITES: York, Waterville, Greely. These three teams, like their boys counterparts, have size, depth and skill, key elements for championship teams.

WATCH OUT FOR: Falmouth. The Yachtsmen finished fifth at last weekend’s WMC championships, and their strength is in the field events, where throwers Jenna Serunian and Kate Sparks can score points.

ATHLETES TO WATCH: Emily Mitchell, senior, York (100, 200, long jump); Kendra Lobley, senior, Poland (800, 1,600, 3,200); Bethanie Brown, sophomore, Waterville (1,600, 3,200).


10 a.m. today

McMann Field, Bath


FAVORITES: Sacopee Valley, Lisbon, North Yarmouth Academy. Sacopee Valley, the 2010 champion, ran away with the Western Maine Conference small-school championship and has entries in 17 events – giving the Hawks ample chances to score points.

WATCH OUT FOR: Orono. Expect the Red Riots to be strong contenders in the three relay events and sprints.

ATHLETES TO WATCH: Mitchell Watson, junior, Sacopee Valley (100, 200, 400); Alex Coffin, senior, NYA (800, 1,600); Morgan Reeves, junior, Lisbon (pole vault).


FAVORITES: John Bapst, Lisbon, Traip Academy. John Bapst has won eight of the last nine Class C championships, relying on a last-event push in 2010 to win the state title, and the Crusaders typically have strong numbers at the state meet.

WATCH OUT FOR: Orono, the runner-up to John Bapst at last weekend’s Penobscot Valley Conference small-school championships.

ATHLETES TO WATCH: Carley O’Brien, senior, Traip Academy (100 hurdles, long jump, triple jump); Abby Mace, junior, Maranacook (1,600, 3,200); Shelby Wheeler, senior, Orono (pole vault).
