Maine Sports Legends will honor six student athletes and seven individuals who will be inducted in the Maine Sports Legends’ Hall of Honors on Sunday, June 24, at the Alfond Youth Center in Waterville, according to a news release from Maine Sports Legends.

The awards banquet, a buffet, will begin at 1:30 p.m., following a social half hour.

Students chosen from Northern Maine include Gabrielle Marquis and Evan Desmond, both from Caribou High School; from Eastern Maine, Gilleyanne Davis-Oakes, of Vinalhaven High School, and Connor DiAngelo, of Greenville High School; from Central Maine, Kiera-Caley Young, of Oak Hill High School, and Soren Nyhus, of Waterville High School. Each will receive funds to be used in connection with their college education.

This year’s Hall of Honors inductees from Northern Maine are Mark Rossignol, of New Sweden, John Habeeb, of Caribou, and Richard Cormier, of Fort Fairfield/Van Buren, posthumous; from Eastern Maine, Paul Soucy, of Brewer, and Bernard “Mac” MacKenzie, of Old Town, posthumous; and from Central Maine, Donna Russo, of Waterville, and Carl “Stump” Merrill, of Harpswell.
