  • Maine H.S. track: Noble girls dash to second place

      
    By Josh Seguin / sports@fosters.com
    NORTH BERWICK, Maine – As Noble High School’s Nina Tasker raced toward the finish line of the 300-meter hurdles at the York County Track Championship on Saturday, her stride was smooth and her hurdling was spot on. By the time she reached the finish line, she had a sizable lead. Her time of 47.58 bested the field by over two seconds.

    “I have been doing hurdling events for a while, since middle school,” Tasker said. “It has become second nature to me. New people trying to go over hurdles struggle. I am so used to them and able to run them pretty well. Yesterday, I was practicing taking just 17 steps instead of 19 or 18 in-between. That pushed me forward a lot because taking less steps quickens the race. I was just digging and that really pushed up my time.”

    Tasker was the top local performer in a meet that included athletes from Marshwood, Sanford, Massabesic, Bonny Eagle and Thornton. She also won the 100 hurdles in a time of 16.31 seconds and finished second in the long jump (15 feet, 10 inches).

    “(Tasker) has always been a really good hurdler,” said Noble girls coach Daniel Lawrence. “She started out well and her middle school coaches coached her up well. She has worked really hard to be at the top of her game.”

    Noble had a great day in the girls meet taking second with a score of 123.5 points. Thornton took home the girls title with 174.5. Marshwood finished in fifth with 52.

    In the boys events, Noble finished fourth (75) and Marshwood sixth (52). Thornton won the boys events with 143, followed by Bonny Eagle (115) and Sanford (101).

    “To get to a bigger meet like this it is usually a good test,” said Noble boys coach Rodney Brown. “I thought we did really well. Like today, the field and a good amount of running events will place in bigger meets going forward. I am looking forward to that.”

    One of the better stories was the reemergence of Mackenzie Young of Marshwood, who won the 3,200 run in a time of 12:16.91. She beat the next best runner by over 35 seconds. She didn’t PR in the event, but she came within a second.

    “When I started lapping people I had a mindset of they were in front of me and I had to beat them,” said Young. “I was zoning out so I didn’t realize if anybody behind me."

    “(Young) had a really impressive race,” said Marshwood coach Matt Sanzone. “She was running pretty much by herself the whole race. It wasn’t that surprising of a result to me because her training has been great the last few weeks. She put it all together today.”

    Young, who also participates in indoor track, was set back in the winter when she came down with an illness.

    “I have been having really bad two miles for both indoor season and outdoor season.,” said Young. “It was good to get back to the level I know I am capable of. My times went down considerably. I am just glad I am back healthy and back into my old form.”

    The Noble girls 4x400 relay team won the event by nine seconds over Thornton in a time of 4:18.25.

    “We came into today feeling really good about it,” said anchor Morgan Griffin. “We worked really hard and wanted a good time. I think that our second leg with Joselyn Jones was key. She started the momentum forward for us.”

    The Hawks’ Ethan Martin won the 1,600 racewalk in a time of 7:55.29. Martin broke his own school record in the process, getting below the eight-minute mark for the first time.

    “It was a really close race, but I think that having another racer near me for three of the four laps was a big thing to help me pace,” said Martin. “I felt a real big kick with the 100-meter mark and I just zoomed out.”

    Noble took home four of the top five positions in the girls racewalk. Sarah Mayrose led the pack with a time of 9:38.52.

    The closest event of the day was in the boys high-jump. Lance Santeusanio of Noble and Marshwood’s Bailey Mergler tied with jumps of 5 feet, 4 inches. Santeusanio was deemed the winner, as he got all his jumps in before that, cleanly.

    “It was (Mergler’s) first real competition today, in which he put it all together,” said Sanzone . “It was amazing to see what we could do.”

    Santeusanio was off his normal pace in the event. Mergler but impressed in the event, given it was his first time in competition. He also took second in the (Pole) vault.

    “Not much went well for me,” said Santeusanio. “I jumped much lower than I usually do. My PR is six feet and I only jumped 5-4. That brought others into play. I was able to be clean through 5-4, which won me the event.”

    Other notables: Marshwood’s Matt Cooper finished second in the boys discus (138-06), followed in third by Noble’s Alex Upton (135-04). Knight boys were second in the 4x400. The Hawk girls were second in the 4x800 relay (10:32.32) and Noble girls were second in the 4x100 (51.23). Katherine Page of Marshwood was second in the girls 100 dash (13.18) and third in the 200.

    Sanford keeps Knights at bay
      
    By Tim MacLean / sports@fosters.com
    NORTH BERWICK, Maine — Eva Belanger wasn’t her team’s leading scorer on Thursday, but one could argue she was it’s most important player.

    The midfielder for Sanford High School’s girls lacrosse team was dynamite in the circle, securing 19 of the game’s 24 draws in the Spartans’ 14-11 win over Class A South foe Noble.

    “She did phenomenal today. She was right on,” Sanford coach Diana Walker said. “It is something that we’ve been working on in practice, but she was able to get the ball even when she didn’t draw. She just got her stick up in the air and just focused on the ball.”

    Belanger’s draws contributed directly to what the Spartans (3-6) were able to do offensively. As soon as she gained possession of the ball, she instantly pushed it up the field, which put a lot of pressure on Noble’s defense to get back as quickly as it could.

    “I think that controlling the draw is pretty important because whoever controls the draw gets the first run at the net,” Noble’s Kerri Fleming said. “It was good for (Belanger) and she made it harder for us. But I think we did pretty well considering they won most of the draws.”

    A big reason why the Knights were able to stay in the game despite Sanford’s consistent chances at the net was the play of goalie Kelly Cremmen. The freshman was a brick wall in net all game long and ended up finishing with 32 saves.

    “She was on her A-game today,” Noble coach Lily Xydias said. “She was just seeing that ball into her stick every single time and was just really, really moving her feet, which is huge. She’s a freshman and we’re proud of her.”

    With 21 of those saves coming in the first half, it seemed as though Noble (2-7) was in control of the game early on, especially when it went into halftime with an 8-7 lead.

    But the Spartans came out extremely tough in the second half, scoring four straight goals — one each from Maddie Leigh (7 goals) and Valentina Drown, and two from Megan O’Connell — to take an 11-8 lead.

    After a quick timeout taken by Noble, the Knights did their best to answer with two quick goals courtesy of Summer Smith (2 goals) and Emma Noel, cutting the deficit to one. But after Leigh and Samantha Couture (4 goals) traded goals, Belanger put the Knights away for good with two straight in the final two minutes.

    “It was a really tough game against Sanford,” Xydias said. “It’s always really mental because they are just these rivals. (The players) know each other, they grew up close to each other, so it’s always a really, really tough game. Obviously, the heat didn’t help but it all comes down to the mental game I think, for us, especially.”

    Fleming was tied for a Noble-high four goals in the game with Couture. Delaney Tanguay also tossed one in for the Spartans.

    Noble will be at home against Gorham on Monday.
