BAR HARBOR — The Mount Desert Island competition cheer team took third place Saturday at the Big East championships in Caribou.
The competition was pushed up from Saturday afternoon to Friday evening in anticipation of bad road conditions throughout the eastern part of the state. As a result, MDI made the return leg of the trip after the event rather than staying overnight as planned.
Among the teams the Trojans beat out for their third-place finish were Caribou, Presque Isle and Old Town. Ellsworth finished first, and defending Class B champion Hermon placed second.
The Trojans will return to action this weekend for the Penobscot Valley Conference championships at Mattanawcook Academy in Lincoln. The meet will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 20.
