The following is a breakdown of local team’s rosters and offensive leaders for 2020:


The Panthers outscored opponents 20-5 and were coached by Brian Campbell.

"Our season was more than we thought we would get but less than we wanted," said Von Oesen. "To have a strong, unified, together group ready to succeed and see it not reach its potential was tough and we all made the best of it. Undefeated with a limited schedule does not demonstrate what could have been accomplished and we believed we would see a tough Waynflete team at the end again and the boys were up for the challenge. The sudden end when Waldo [County] went 'yellow' was even more challenging, but we move on and many are with us for the start of basketball in hopes we can do well with what we are given for a season."

Leading Mount View's offense were Grassi (2 goals), Russell (10 goals, 3 assists), Furrow (8 goals, 2 assists), Hurd (5 goals), Kinney (2 goals), Widmer (goal), Schofield (5 goals, 1 assist), Finley (goal, assist) and Porter (goal).

"Record-wise, our season was a success," said Page. "Coming into this season we felt we were a top contender in North 'C' and our goal was to get to the state game. So, obviously we were extremely disappointed that we didn't get the chance to work towards all our goals, especially with 10 seniors on the roster. We got shut down early, but a lot of schools didn't even hit the field, so we're happy to have gotten that opportunity. We were able to give every player varsity experience in every game so that will only help their development going forward."
