MSSM girls capture Aroostook County volleyball crown

WASHBURN, Maine — The MSSM (Maine School of Science and Mathematics) girls volleyball team won the Division 2 Aroostook County Championships Friday, 15, at Washburn High School.

The boys event was held Saturday, March 16 at Fort Fairfield Middle High School.

Teams from Van Buren, Wisdom High School, Ashland, Central Aroostook High School, Greater Houlton Christian Academy, Fort Fairfield, Easton, Washburn, Katahdin, and Hodgdon also competed in the girls event.

The MSSM girls went 13-2 in the tournament and defeated Fort Fairfield in the championship.

Team captain Victoria Eichorn was selected as the Aroostook County MVP of the tournament and made All Aroostook along with Hannah Zimmerman.

“The girls did an outstanding job communicating to each other while on the court and encouraged each other,” coach Thomas Beckum said. “They played point by point and never got ahead of themselves and they kept their cool when they got behind.”

Beckum added the squad was “a great group of athletes to work with and I look forward to next season.”
