BAR HARBOR — Five Mount Desert Island High School seniors have been named National Merit Scholarship semifinalists.

Coincidentally, all five – Ransom Burgess, Isabel and Olivia Erickson, Andrew Gallup and Nora Hubbell – are members of the school’s cross country team.

“MDI has a tradition of excellence in the classroom, on the athletic field and in the community, and these young men and women exemplify the well rounded individuals we encourage all of our students to be,” MDI High principal Matt Haney said of the five National Merit semifinalists in a letter to the school community.
