MOUNT DESERT ISLAND — With a dramatic comeback on Sunday, the Mount Desert Island high school girls emerged as a champion of last weekend’s largest-ever Great Harbor Shootout.

The MDI girls trailed a team from Lawrence, a Class A high school and a favorite for next year’s gold ball, 37-27 at halftime of the final, but rallied in the second half to win 68-54.

Officials of the 22nd annual tournament, presented by The First, N.A., called the event an immense success with nearly 90 girls’ and boys’ junior high and high school basketball teams participating.

In other championship play on Sunday, Winslow prevailed over Houlton 87-82 to win the high school boys’ title.

In the junior high finals, it was the Icebreakers, a combined team from Brewer and Hampden, edging the Glenburn Sparks 35-33 in the girls’ faceoff, and the Glenburn Elite besting the Auburn Lumberjacks 50-37 in the boys’ final.
