Yarmouth — Three Waldo County student-athletes brought home state Class B track-and-field championships on Saturday, June 3 at Yarmouth High School and one of them — Belfast's Kylie Nelson — secured two.

Nelson capped a tremendous four-year high school career — minus her possible participation in the New England meet — with individual state titles in the long jump and pole vault, an event she essentially has owned indoors and outdoors for years.

Additionally, Nelson broke the school record in the long jump at 17 feet 7 inches. The old record was held for 39 years by Jackie Cox.

Nelson also had a pair of fifth-place finishes Saturday. "Her last day wearing a blue-and-gold uniform could not have gone any better," said veteran Lion coach Dale Nealey. "She had an amazing day."

Belfast's Jack Hansen also won the state long jump and Mount View's Chase Hubbard the state 1,600-meter racewalk.

Other Midcoast qualifying athletes from Belfast, Mount View of Thorndike, Camden Hills of Rockport, Medomak Valley of Waldoboro and Oceanside of Rockland also fared well in individual and relay events against some of the state's most talented competition.

In fact, top-five performances were the norm for area competitors.

A handful of Midcoast athletes, including the state winners and others near the top of their events, also may have qualified for the New England championships on Saturday, June 10 at Norwell High School in Norwell, Mass.

According to the Maine Principals' Association website, "The qualifiers from Maine will be based on the performances at the three state meets. All seven scorers from each of the state meets will create the pool to fill the field. The state champions from each of the three classes and the next three best performances will qualify for the meet. If one or more of the six qualifiers decides not to compete, then the field will be filled with the next best performance from the state meets. If an athlete qualifies in more than one event, they may decide to enter in fewer events than for which they have qualified."

The state Class B girls team scores were: Greely of Cumberland 67, York 59, Mount Desert Island 48, Belfast 39, Gray-New Gloucester 35, Kennebunk 34.5, Waterville 32, Old Town and Lawrence of Fairfield 31, Lincoln Academy of Newcastle 27, Cape Elizabeth 26, Camden Hills 25, Spruce Mountain of Jay and Leavitt of Turner 24, Lake Region 21, Foxcroft Academy of Dover-Foxcroft and Presque Isle 18, Yarmouth 12, John Bapst of Bangor 11, Poland and Fryeburg Academy 10, Wells and Erskine Academy of South China 9, Winslow 8, Mount View 7.5, Hermon 6, Nokomis of Newport 4 and Freeport 1.

The boys class B State list is missing the totals for Mt. View and Belfast.

The MV community is very proud of the 4 x 100 team as they came in second in the race only missing first by .07 of a second.  They set a new school record with this relay team.  The former team held the record since 1999.
