Mathletes Strike Again

The Boothbay Math Team had their third meet last week in Rockland already. Top scorers for Boothbay were Connor Demmons (52) (holy darn!!), Sam Betts (35), and Max Hoecker (27). Boothbay came in fourth in the meet.

For the 2016-17 season, Boothbay is in a low seventh place with 457 total points, trailing local rival Lincoln Academy by a mere 345 points placed in second. “You know, we are in a low right now as a team, mentally and emotionally. As a crucial member of the team, I plan on raising my team’s emotions just before we all sit silently for twelve minutes and do some dank math,” said Griffin Kane, an avid senior mathlete who said he plans on joining the 2017-18 math team as an assistant coach to the Gilchrists.

Boothbay Juniors make up a majority of the math team. In the Central Maine Math League, Connor Demmons (121) is in third, Max Hoecker (79) is in eleventh, Kyle Alley (31) is in thirty first, and Hailey Greenleaf (29) is in thirty second overall. When inquiring non-mathletes why they have not joined already, many anonymous members spoke of the overwhelming “clique” state of the team of juniors as well as finding no time on Wednesday afternoons to come to the practices because of their prescheduled “lavender bubble baths.”

Math Team practices are on Wednesdays from 1:45 pm to 2:45 pm. Come join the team and attend the next meet on January 25th and enjoy some magical snacks!!

Boothbay First Down 9-4 You’ll Never Believe How They Made Their Comeback!

Boothbay brought home the W Friday night feeding a big ol’ L to the Mountain Valley Falcons.  In the first game of the Lady Seahawks’ season, the team ventured up to the beautiful town of Rumford, and even though they had to shake off the rust in the beginning of the game, they put a smackin’ on the Falcons, beating them with a crazy high score of 43-23.  In the first quarter of the game, the ladies were trailing 9-4, but in a time-out, Junior captains, Kate Clarke and Nicole Friant, put a fire under the team saying, “This is our time! We will not lose like this!!!”  Apparently, this rousing speech worked, encouraging Boothbay to score the next 22 points and take the lead by the fourth quarter 31-17.  Senior, Page Brown, was the team’s leading scorer racking up a prodigious 17 points.  After this seraphic game, Boothbay made the long trip home and later took on Madison Stahle December 12.
