Season overview for boys tennis and boys track - By Stephanie Coffin

Boys Tennis:
The boy’s tennis team went into the playoffs as the number seven seed after a tough loss to South Portland. The team won a preliminary match against Biddeford which allowed a quarterfinal match against number two rivalry Deering. Deering beat the Eagles 4-1 in regular season play. After two hours of play the match was tied at 2-2. The Eagles won at first singles and third singles. Second singles player senior Dom Cancelarich was down 5-2 in the third set. Dom put together an incredible string of games to clinch the match 3-2 for Windham. The boys’ team went on to lose to number three Falmouth who then advanced to the state championship. The boys’ tennis team had a great season overall, said Coach Glider.

Boys track:
This year’s boys track team had 12 athletes qualify for the state track meet. Ernie Ruby placed fifth in the 100m and sixth in the 300m hurdles. Ernie then qualified for the New England meet in the 100m, where he placed 23rd. He also received a third team all-SMAA conference in the 100m.
The teams top performers this season included: Eric Webb, in the sprints and jumps, who unfortunately had a season ending injury. Eric did set a school record in the 100m this season. Thomas Sappier qualified for states in the javelin, shot put and discus. Ben Breton finished eighth at states in the 3200m.
Ben Breton, Jeremy Bennett, Aaron Graves and Liam Flynn also set a school record in the 4x800m relay.
