Laker weekly recaps

 

 

 

TRACK & FIELD

The weather was dismal again, but the girls’ team broke 24 personal records and narrowly won the meet.  Wells won the meet 83.5 to 83, but that was not decided until the last few seconds of the girls’ 4x400.  Hannah Chadwick trailed Kate Macolini of Wells by a couple of seconds going into the anchor leg of the 4x400.  Hannah pulled even with 100 meters to go, but Macolini had more left in the last few meters to finish 0.32 seconds ahead. Poland won the event in 4:41.91, and finished third in the team scoring with 79.5 points.

Emily Colson and Hannah Chadwick had PR splits in the relay and were two of five Lakers to have three PRs on the day.  Hannah had a 4-second PR in the 800m while finishing second and an automatic state qualifying PR in the high jump of 4 feet, 8 inches.

Emily had a 200m PR by 0.35 seconds and a 400m PR by almost 2 seconds.

Hannah Record and Dorothy Moyse each hurled three PRs. Hannah’s PRs were by 4 inches in the shot put, 2.5 feet in the discus, and 3 feet in the javelin. Dorothy’s were 3 inches in the javelin, 19 inches in the shot put, and 3 feet in the discus.

Liam Opie had a 0.3 second PR in the 200m, a 2-inch PR in the shot put, and a 1.5-foot PR in the javelin.

There were many PRs in the throwing events Friday. Long PRs in the javelin were accomplished by Brandon Ross (9 feet), Maraia Nason (9 feet), Johnna Scott (9 feet), and Marcus DeVoe (11 feet and now only 7 inches shy of qualifying).

Long discus PRs were made by Shea Durgin (6 feet), Matt Stenger (6 feet), and Autumn Tremblay (4 feet).

Sam DeSouza was first in all three throwing events and she PRed in the discus.

Johnna Scott also placed in the three throws getting two second and a fourth place finish.

A few runners also had good days.  Cutter Meeker and Ethan Chadwick had significant PRs in the 1600m and 4x400 relay, respectively.  Matt Mayo had a PR in the 800m and his 4x400m split. Catherine Christiansen placed second in the 100m (PR), 200m (PR), and the 400m. She also qualified provisionally in the 200m and 400m.

Dakota Stover represented the jumpers well.  His outdoor debut in the long and triple jumps resulted in two PRs, two wins, and two tickets to the state championship.

BASEBALL

Kennebunk 4, Lakers 2: Nate Smith allowed only five hits in a complete game, but although Kennebunk didn’t have a sharp hit all day, the Rams put the bat on the ball and came away with a home victory last Wednesday.

The Lakers managed just two hits with four walks.

Cape 10, Lakers 0: With fog rolling across the field last Friday, the Lakers were blanked by the Capers in a game called after five innings.

Freeport 10, Lakers 0: The first meeting between the two clubs was a classic with the Falcons pulling off a 2-0 victory as a few fielding miscues proved to be the difference. Friday’s rematch proved to be a mismatch. Freeport’s catcher went 4-for-4 with two singles a double and a monster blast for a home run to right to pace the Falcons to a 10-0 victory.

Laker Coach Randy Heath felt his club lacked spark and energy both offensively and defensively as Freeport had a no hitter through five frames, giving up a single in the sixth.

“How can you play a game like baseball with no life, no energy? We will not win a game this season until these guys find the fire. Right now, they are just going through the motions,” Coach Heath said. “Flat baseball will never beat a team with fire.”

SOFTBALL

Kennebunk 25, Lakers 7: Kaylyn Lorrain went 4-for-4 with a 2-run home run in the third inning to lead the Laker offense at Kennebunk. Lorrain finished with 4 RBI.

Liz Cole continued to swing a hot bat, collecting three hits including a lead-off double to start the game and a triple.

Brooke Harriman also went 4-for-4 (all singles) and a RBI, while Maddie Rock had two hits. Jackie Morse and Tia Grover each had hits.

Cape 17, Lakers 5: Brooke Harriman laced two doubles off the right-center field fence and Jackie Morse struck for two hits to lead the Lakers at Cape Elizabeth last Friday.

The Lakers threatened in the first, but left runners in scoring position. Cape built a 2-0 lead in the second on two errors and a hit. With two out in the third, Morse walked and later scored on Harriman’s deep drive to the fence.

Cape added a pair of runs in the third, and broke the game open in the fourth with eight runs courtesy of three LR outfield miscues.

The Lakers, however, refused to quit, and plated four runs in the fifth behind consecutive hits with one out by Morse, Harriman (double), Kaylyn Lorrain and Maddie Rock.

Lakers 9, Freeport 8: With two out in the bottom of the seventh inning and the game tied, Haley Fernald drilled a line shot up the middle for a RBI single, scoring Maddie Rock who beat the throw to the plate as the Lakers rallied from three runs down to beat the Falcons at home.

For the Lakers, it was a little payback. Freeport rallied from a 7-4 deficit to upend the Lakers earlier in the season.

Down 1-0, the Lakers finally broke through in the fifth inning on RBI singles by Kaylyn Lorrain and Maddie Rock to go up 5-1.

Freeport inched back into the contest by scoring four runs in the sixth courtesy of five walks and an error.

After the Lakers went in order in the sixth, the Falcons took the lead by scoring four times against a shaky LR defense that commited five miscues, while Freeport managed just two hits.

Pinch hitter Arianna Libby started the rally by hitting a floater down the first base line and beat out the throw. Liz Cole followed with a double. With one out, Brooke Harriman drilled a deep drive to right center, scoring two runs. After Harriman (3-for-4 with a double in the first) moved up on a passed ball, Lorrain (2-for-4) launched a deep drive to right to score Harriman to tie the game. Rock then reached on a dropped fly ball to center and moved into scoring position on the play when the ball was misfired, setting the stage for Fernald’s game winner.

Lorrain struck out eight Freeport hitters.

Lakers JV 9, Wells 6: Haley Fernald struck out eight and allowed just three hits to lead the Lake Region JV past Wells last Thursday in Naples.

Up next: The Lakers host Gray-NG on Friday and then travel to Greely on Wednesday. Both games are at 4 p.m.

The Laker JV travel to Gray-NG on Saturday for a noontime game, and head to York on Tuesday for a 4:45 p.m. contest.
