Windham players mix it up in the Shriners Lobster Bowl By Michelle Libby
Four athletes from Windham High School represented at the 24th annual Maine Shrine Lobster Bowl Classic. Football players Damien Shepard and Brandon Mitchell and cheerleaders Haley Williams and Cassidy Gaudet all played and cheered for the West team. They spent the week before the Saturday game training with athletes from all of the area, the once rivals coming together to raise money for Shriners hospitals.
“It was so great to see the East/West become rivals yet are such great friends,” said parent Beth Gaudet.
The football players were at Hebron Academy and the cheerleaders were at CMCC. The game took place in Biddeford last Saturday. Both East and West teams as well as their cheerleaders raised $94,000, the most ever, for Shriners hospitals.
The East beat the West for the first time in two years with a score of 25-13.
