MTA Homecoming this Saturday

By Dee Menear Irregular Staff Writer

SALEM — Mt. Abram High School Homecoming is Saturday, Oct. 14 and community members are invited to attend games and take part in celebration activities.

At 2 p.m. JV Roadrunners will take on Mt. Valley JV Falcons. The JV Roadrunners are led by U.S. Cellular Most Valuable Coach nominee James Danala.

The Homecoming parade, with float entries from each class, will take place at 4:15 p.m. Senior Parent Recognition for both the Roadrunner and Lady Roadrunner teams will take place at 4:30 p.m. This tradition gives teams and senior athletes the chance to publicly recognize parents for their support.

Kickoff for the Roadrunners and Carrabec Cobras is at 5 p.m. The Roadrunners, led by Coach Darren Allen, have had an impressive season thus far with an 8-1-2 record, as of Monday, Oct. 9. As of press time, the team was fourth in the Maine Principal Association Heal Point Standings. Carrabec stood at eighth with a 6-5-0 record. The Roadrunners prevailed (5-2) when they challenged the Cobras earlier this season at Carrabec High School.

At 6:30 p.m., the Lady Roadrunners, led by Coach Andrew Delcourt, will face the Carrabec Lady Cobras. An aggressive game in Lady Cobra territory earlier this season showed the rival teams to be on a nearly level playing field with the Lady Roadrunners suffering a 1- goal loss. As of press time, the Lady Roadrunners sat at 13th in the standings with a 3-8-1 record. Lady Cobras have a 5-4-2 record, leaving them at 11th in the standings.

All activities will take place at Potter’s Park at Mt. Abram High School. Come out and support our local student athletes.

Administrators of the Mountain Valley Conference and Mt. Abram Regional High School are committed to the promotion of good sportsmanship. As a reminder, it is the responsibility of all those in attendance to respect officials, coaches, athletes and opposing fans.
