Sports Shorts: AOTW, cross-country race, round-robin fundraiser

Kasch Warner

Athlete of the Week: Kasch Warner 

BAR HARBOR — The Mount Desert Island High School golf team started the season 4-0 Aug. 26 due in large part to contributions from juniors Caden Braun and Kasch Warner. Warner was the medalist in the team’s match, meaning he shot the lowest score of any golfer in the field. His score of 38 was also his best round as a Trojan so far. 


Cross-country race

To run in the adult race will cost $15 and to run in the kids race will cost $8, paid in cash or checks made out to MDIHS for MDIXC Fund. There will be kids and age group awards handed out, as well as MDIHS Cross Country gear for sale.

Seeking a boost 

MOUNT DESERT ISLAND — After the announcement that the MDI All-Sports Boosters was set to disband this year due to lack of interest, WDEA reported that a group of parents was launching a campaign to keep the club up and running.  

The boosters say there are five things needed to keep the club afloat: a parent from each team willing to represent their sport on the boosters’ club and get additional parents on board to work concessions; four to five parents to work concessions at each home event; a core group of parents that are willing to learn the ropes of opening, running and closing the concession shack; parents willing to bake homemade goods and/or crockpot items to be sold at concessions; and one parent willing to take on the role of president and one for vice president.
