Athlete of the Week: Bryan Maurais
BAR HARBOR — The Mount Desert Island golf team enjoyed a successful fall with a Penobscot Valley Conference runner-up finish and a number of solid individual performances. The team was coached by Bryan Maurais, who was in his first full season as head coach after leading the Trojans during the pandemic-shortened campaign a year ago. With a team comprised almost entirely of underclassmen, Maurais has the Trojans set up well for the future. MDI football All-LTC selections
