MDI won’t field JV girls’ soccer team

BAR HARBOR — Mount Desert Island appears set to offer just one girls’ soccer team this season.

With only 21 girls at the moment, MDI is unable to field more than one squad in 2021. As a result, the school will not offer a junior varsity girls’ team this fall.

Athletic Director Bunky Dow said the school could revisit the decision to field a team if more players express interest once the school year begins. The first day of school is next Thursday, Sept. 2.
