Girls Highlights
  • Cape Elizabeth placed three in the top 8 and all 7 of its runners in the top 36 to easily win Class B with 50 points.  The state's top-ranked team (and 2006 runner-up) also had the best score in the combined results.  In both cases, York was 2nd, scoring 98 in the "B" race and 144 to Cape Elizabeth's 73 in the combined.
  • Yarmouth sr Anna Makaretz won Class B and had the best time of the day, with a 19:47 in wet and muddy conditions.  The top 7 from last year's race all returned, but Makaretz, who was 22nd last year, beat them all.  Falmouth sr Madeline Grygiel was 2nd in 19:54.
  • In Class A, two Massabesic runners who clasped hands in triumphant joy at the finish were disqualified and the team was prevented from posting what would have been an upset victory.  Instead they were 4th with 121, behind 2-time defending champ Brunswick (107), Scarborough (111), and Brewer (116).
  • Mt. Blue soph Silver Hunt, not in the state meet last year, took the Class A title in 20:06, with Massabesic #1 Katherine Pierce 2nd in 20:25 and defending champ Amelia Lundkvist of Cheverus 3rd in 20:44.  Brunswick was led by Caroline Webster in 11th, but had a fairly tight pack.
  • Waynflete jr Adele Espy beat the three girls who finished ahead of her last year and won Class C in 20:08.  Hall-Dale sr Magen Ellis was runner-up again in 20:15.  Espy led Waynflete to its first-ever team title, as they scored 40, 16 ahead of Mattanawcook AcademyFreeport had won 4 straight 'C' titles, but moved up to 'B' this year and was 4th.

Boys Highlights
  • The top peformers on the boys side also came from Class B.  Greely rolled to the title with 85 points, with a good up-front combo of James Lepage and Logan Price in 6th and 8th (team scoring), as well as strong depth (easily best 4-5 man finishers).  Caribou was 2nd with 143, winning a 6th-man tiebreaker with Medomak Valley.  Greely and defending champ Cape Elizabeth switched places from last year, when Cape Elizabeth was 1st and Greely was 5th.  Greely won 5 of 6 titles between 99 and 04 before yielding to Cape Elizabeth.
  • Poland's Nick Williams (16:30) moved up from 3rd last year and beat defending champ Ethan Shaw of Falmouth (16:50).  Fryeburg Academy's Tim Even, 4th last year, was 2nd in 16:45.  Williams had the best time of the day.
  • Lewiston sr Mohamed Noor won the Class A title in 16:57, also leading his teammates to their first-ever title with 79 points, seven ahead of Cheverus. It's Noor's first year of cross-country.  Scarborough saw a string of 3 straight titles broken. 
  • Hall-Dale jr Wade Davis improved from 8th last year to take the Class C crown in 17:25.  Winthrop nipped Lisbon for the team title, 65-68, with a 7-point advantage with the 5th man being the difference.  Lisbon had won 4 in a row.
