Spring thrills won't soon be forgotten

The 2013 spring sports season was short, sweet and successful for local athletes and teams.

Highlights were plentiful.

On the baseball diamond, Morse reached the semifinals before dropping a thriller to defending Class B champion Falmouth. Brunswick was ousted in extra innings of an Eastern A prelim.

Brunswick's boys' lacrosse team got to the regional final, where it dropped a painful decision to Cheverus. Mt. Ararat was upset by Deering in the quarterfinals. Morse got to the Western B quarterfinals, but lost to Maranacook.

On the girls' side, Morse enjoyed the best season in its history, reaching the Eastern B Finals before losing to Yarmouth. Mt. Ararat lost to eventual Class A champion Cheverus in the quarterfinals, while reigning regional champion Brunswick was also ousted in that round, by Messalonskee.

The outdoor track and field state meet produced several memorable performances.

Brunswick's girls' tennis team won yet another championship. Several other squads took part in the playoffs.

While we're all glad summer's here, let's take one final look back at the moments and champions that made the spring of 2013 one to remember.
