Chris Nolan

The Rockland District High School senior experienced quite the completion to his high school basketball career Feb. 12, when the No. 10 Tigers faced off against No. 2 Ellsworth. Nolan poured in 28 points in a one-point overtime loss to the Eagles, but also surpassed 1,000 points in his high school career in the process. Nolan is the first Rockland boys basketball player to hit the milestone since Tiger coach Matt Breen did so during his senior year during the 1996-97 season. Nolan joins Rich Mazurek, Ernie Kavanagh, Terry Kenniston and Caitlin Hynes as the only RDHS student-athletes to accomplish this feat.

Willie Fogg

The Belfast Area High School senior is no stranger to individual state titles, and brought home another one during the Class B indoor track championships Feb. 15 at Bates College in Lewiston. Fogg emerged from the pack and took home the individual title for the 200 meters, finishing the race with a time of 23.26 seconds. Last spring, Fogg also won the state crown for the 100 meters in 11.35 at the Class B outdoor championships.

Brent Waterman

The Belfast Area High School freshman grappler took Class B by storm this season, and capped off his first year of varsity wrestling the way everyone would want, but only few can — with an individual state championship. Waterman ran through the gauntlet of talented wrestlers and emerged victorious after defeating Oak Hill’s Keith Madore 14-3 in the championship round of the Feb. 13 Class B wrestling championships at Medomak Valley High School in Waldoboro. Waterman, wrestling in the 119-pound weight class, also won the regional title at Maine Central Institute in Pittsfield and the conference championship at Cony High School in Augusta earlier in the season.

Jane Ouillette

The Belfast Area High School sophomore skied well last week at the Class B championships. Skiing as an independent with Camden Hills Regional High School, Ouillette finished sixth in the slalom (46.06 first run and 47.41 second run for a total time of 1:33.31) and eighth in the giant slalom (47.01 and 46.97 for a total time of 1:33.98) for a strong two-event effort.

Jacob Powers

The Camden Hills Regional High School junior finally ascended to the top of the state championship mountain at the Class B wrestling championships Feb. 13, bringing home his first individual state championship at the 160-pound weight class. Powers prevailed as he defeated Mount View’s Tristan Ripley 16-3 in the championship round. Last year, Powers finished second to York’s Billy Gauthier in the championship final. Powers’ victory helped propel Camden Hills to their 12th state Class B wrestling championship.

Zac Fields

The Camden Hills Regional High School senior ended his high school wrestling career in style at the state Class B wrestling championships in Waldoboro, as the Windjammer brought home his second straight individual title. Fields, after defeating Belfast’s Justin Robbins in last year’s championship match, this year defeated Gardiner’s Dan Delgallo 11-1 in the 130-pound championship final to cap back-to-back individual crowns. In the process, the Windjammers also won their first team state wrestling title since 2007.

Lianne McCluskey

The Camden Hills Regional High School senior clearly feels at home when she is in the pool, and once again affirmed that fact during the state Class B swimming and diving championships Feb. 15 at the Stanley M. Wallace Pool at the University of Maine in Orono. McCluskley not only took home first place honors in both the 100-yard butterfly and the 50-yard freestyle, but was also named performer of the meet for her efforts.

Tyler Arndt

The Rockland District High School junior could not have been more pleased with his effort at the state Class B swimming and diving championships Feb. 13 at the Stanley M. Wallace Pool at the University of Maine in Orono, as Arndt brought home his first individual state championship after taking first place in the 100-meter backstroke. Arndt has been the lone male swimmer for the Tigers over the past few seasons, and hopes his success this season will potentially be an eye-opener to other Rockland student-athletes to take up the sport.
