Mount View High School senior Anna Piotti always gives 100 percent, both in an academic and athletic sense, whenever she steps onto the field hockey pitch or inside the classroom.

Piotti has been honored for those efforts by the Maine Field Hockey Association, nabbing both All-State and Academic All-State awards.

All-State recognition is awarded through a voting system by the state’s coaches, for all classes in the state, for a student-athlete’s performance on the field. All-Academic is based on being a varsity senior, making significant contributions to the team, sportsmanship and a having a grade-point average higher than 97.

Piotti, who plays both midfield and back, fits both criteria and then some, as the senior has a 100 GPA.

Piotti uses her intelligence both on the field and in the classroom. Mount View coach Gloria Hewett said Piotti “is also a smart player and places the ball into play with accuracy.”

“She was the leader in the back field, successfully preventing many opponents from even reaching the scoring circle and helping with the number of shutouts we had this season,” said Hewett.

Piotti, who scored one goal this season, has been a mainstay on the team the past few years and was co-captain of this fall’s squad, which finished 11-2-1 and fourth in Eastern Class B, before losing to No. 5 Winslow in the quarterfinals.

Piotti, along with the other members of the All-State team, will be honored at a luncheon on Sunday, Dec. 4 at 1 p.m. at the Augusta Civic Center.

Piotti also made two sensational player saves of shots on goal this year, including one of the diving variety that helped knock the recently-crowned state Class B champion Belfast Lions from the ranks of the unbeaten on the final day of the regular season.

“She’s an all-around great player,” said Hewett. “She’s the number one player that all coaches notice on my field because she stands out during games.”
