For more than three decades, The Courier-Gazette and VillageSoup newspapers featured end-of-the-season stories that highlighted the cream of the Midcoast high school athletic crop in Knox and part of Lincoln counties. Those stories included the paper’s “all stars” for that season and sport.

However, with the inclusion of student-athletes from Waldo County high schools to reflect VillageSoup’s more regional weekly print publication, the company now ushers in an era with its seasonal sports notables.

The notable student-athletes will represent schools in Knox, Waldo and part of Lincoln counties and, while not termed “all stars,” those highlighted experienced the most consistently strong seasons and distinguished themselves in their sport. Thus, they are worthy of being spotlighted.

VillageSoup will name notables in all high school varsity sports where there are at least two Midcoast teams in that season playing an official varsity schedule. Student-athletes who will be considered for notable distinction can come from Belfast Area High School, Camden Hills Regional High School, Rockland District High School, Medomak Valley High School, Georges Valley High School, Vinalhaven High School, North Haven Community School, Islesboro Central School, Mount View High School and Searsport District High School.

In naming notables in a sport, VillageSoup is not trying to highlight every potentially deserving student-athlete from a given team, only to highlight the most consistently strong performers during a particular season in a particular sport. Obviously, with any such list of notables being subjective, not all those initially considered ultimately will make the final list of notables.

In addition, there usually is at least one representative from each school in a given sport, but that is not always the case. From that point, the rest of the notables could be a mix of student-athletes from many schools, or weighted heavily on one or two schools. Obviously, the more success a particular team has will, in some respects, dictate the number of potential notables it receives.

In most sports, the nomination process for a sport begins with the VillageSoup sports department polling area coaches to provide a list of what they feel are each respective team’s premier players for that season, not necessarily for a high school career. The notables are based on individual performances, although the strength of a team’s season may impact how many players from a specific team are selected.

A nomination only guarantees each candidate’s consideration, not ultimate notable status. While the input of each coach is weighed heavily with each candidate, the final decisions are made by VillageSoup Sports Director Ken Waltz and Associate Sports Director Mark Haskell.

Again, not all potential notables will ultimately become VillageSoup’s notables. Only those nominated by coaches and ultimately selected by the VillageSoup sports staff.

The selection process is somewhat different for track and swimming because the times and places attained by local student-athletes are not subjective, but concrete and tell exactly how they stack up with the competition. Thus, coaches are not involved in the selection process for notables for those two sports. In swimming and track, selection is based on criteria from the state meet and not for placing high in the league meet.

Those who qualified and participated in the state championship meet in one or more individual events or was a member of a relay that finished among the top six at the state are notables.

Some local athletes may have qualified for the states and did not participate so we have no way of knowing how well they might have done.

This year’s VillageSoup track-and-field notables include Belfast’s Willie Fogg, Adam Heroux, Dylan Webster, Jake Campbell, Noah Fishman, Ryan James, Ben Shepard, Jake Levangie, Tim Parker, Julia Thurston, Lauren Martin, Hannah Hill, Abbie Wessels, Gracie Sheldon, Emily Violette, Rachel Kahn, Kelsey Woodbury, Ally James, Kasey Laveway, Paige Kelley and Fanny Fennimore of Belfast; Camden Hills’ Collin Downs, Ryan Widzgowski, Lianne McCluskey, Maddy Smeaton and Emily Lopez; Medomak Valley’s Ian Rixon, Josh Parmenter, Deering Genthner, Patrick O’Donnell, Devin Sproul, Nate McBrien, Alex MacKenzie, Nate Meade, Jonathan Hendrickson-Belloguet, Gwen Moiles, Kiana Ocean, Heidi Harris, Desiree Leary, Nicole Weaver, Julie Ennamorati and Morgan Baum; Mount View’s Curtis Griffin, Ben Fox, Colby Blanchard, Nate Sigouin, Hayleigh Kein, Jared Hustus, Seth London and Chrissy Larrabee; Rockland’s Rebecca Picard, Alex Young and Laura Swanson; North Haven’s Charlie Jones; Searsport’s Faith Mackey, Sara Bradshaw and Scott Broadley; Georges Valley’s Dakota Smith; and Islesboro’s Gerard Scherr.
