Sports Shorts: Booster club dissolves, Trojan schedule, cheerleading clinic

Sports booster club dissolves 

BAR HARBOR — Mount Desert Island High School Athletic Director Bunky Dow announced on Facebook earlier this week that the MDI All-Sports Boosters Club would be no more.  

“It is very sad news, but due to lack of interest and volunteers, the MDI All-Sports Boosters club is being dissolved. We will look for other organizations to run the concession stand at fall events.” 

The volunteer group was previously responsible for raising money to support the various athletic programs offered by the school. 


Trojan schedule 

BAR HARBOR — The week of Monday, Aug. 29, both the Mount Desert Island High School girls’ and boys’ varsity soccer teams will take on Belfast in a preseason scrimmage. The boys’ team will travel to Belfast while the girls’ team will play at home.  

The varsity golf team will continue its regular season with a match at Ellsworth against Ellsworth and Brewer on Aug. 30 and another match at Hermon against Ellsworth and Hermon Sept. 1.
