Scarborough senior Kristen Felt capped her standout high school career Sunday by being named the winner of the Maine Miss Field Hockey award, given to the top senior player in the state. Felt, who spent her first two years at Cony before helping the Red Storm win the 2009 Class A state title and earn the top seed in Western A this fall, scored 12 goals and added 17 assists in 2010. Felt, 13th academically in a class of 261, was also named to the all-state team, was a first-team SMAA all-star, the league’s MVP, qualified for the league’s All-Academic team and made the Northeast region All-American team.
“We are all so very proud of her,” said Scarborough coach Kerry Mariello. “It is a classic case of a great thing happening to a great person and an extreme amount of hard work paying off. When you have the opportunity to coach this caliber of player/person you really learn so much. Kristen stabilized us, she motivated all of us to push, to want to succeed for her, because she deserved that as a player, teammate, and person. She gave us so much in so many ways, and I am glad she is getting what she deserves in return.”
