AUGUSTA — The completion of the Mountain Valley Conference track and field championships was postponed for a second time in five days because of wet weather, leaving schools scrambling ahead of the state meets Saturday.

Lisbon High School will host the rest of the MVC meet Tuesday at 2 p.m., weather permitting.

The MVC championships began last Thursday at Cony, but were called midway through the meet because of heavy rain.

Teams were scheduled to resume the meet Monday, also at Cony, but rain once again forced a postponement.

Now, the hope is to finish the meet Tuesday at Lisbon because preliminary seedings for states are due Wednesday.

“We’ve already extended the deadline for (state) meet entries,” said Mike Burnham, a director with the Maine Principals’ Association. “We really do need the seedings Wednesday, though, because if there are issues that need to be resolved we can do that Thursday before final seedings are due Friday.”


Burnham added that the high school baseball/softball seasons have been extended through Thursday, giving teams an additional day for makeups.

HALL-DALE GIRLS TENNIS ADVANCES: For the second consecutive season, the Hall-Dale girls tennis team squared off against Wiscasset in a Western C quarterfinal match.

And for the second year in a row, the Bulldogs had little trouble with the Wolverines in a 5-0 whitewash.

Top-seeded Hall-Dale (14-0) rolled to an efficient victory over No. 8 Wiscasset (5-8) Monday afternoon at A-COPI Tennis and Sports Center.

“It was a good, quality opponent that we played,” Hall-Dale coach Guy Cousins said. “It was a good match.”

It was certainly a quick one, too, as the Bulldogs wasted little time moving on to the regional semifinals, where they will host No. 4 North Yarmouth Academy on Thursday.


No. 1 singles player Clio Barr sank Miranda McIntyre 6-1, 6-2, while No. 2 singles player Nicole Pelletier also cruised to victory. She defeated Hanna Foye 5-1, by default.

Rio Yokokawa bested Maeve Carlson 6-0, 6-2.

In doubles action, Autumn St Pierre and Thea Sweet avenged a regular season defeat to Brooke Carleton and Hayhlee Craig with a 6-4, 6-3 victory. In second doubles, Rose Warren and Addie Davis defeated Hannah Welborn and Alisyn Richardon 6-1, 6-2.

“We’re going to need play a great match against NYA to get the result we want,” Cousins said.
