WMHS celebrates Homecoming

Sun, 09/19/2021 - 8:45am

A thunderstorm forced a one-hour delay of Saturday night’s Homecoming festivities at Wiscasset Middle High School. It was 7 p.m. before the Wolverine boys’ varsity soccer team took the field in the rain against the Mt. Abram Roadrunners. The girls’ game was set to follow, and it would be followed by a fireworks display. Wiscasset lost both games.

Before the rain came, Kateleen Trask, class of 2020, told Wiscasset Newspaper she returned to support her alma mater. Now studying nursing at Southern Maine Community College, Trask played three sports for WMHS, soccer, basketball and softball. Her younger brother Austin Trask is a member of the Wolverines’ current soccer team.

Gabby Leavitt, who graduated this year, said she hadn’t missed a Homecoming here in six years. She’s attending University of Maine in Orono. Another familiar face was at the scorer’s table: Al Gray of Wiscasset returned this season to run the scoreboard and clock.

The Booster Club was manning the Snack Shack selling hot food and drinks. In spite of the rainy weather, there was a good showing of fans from Wiscasset and Salem, home of Mt. Abram Regional High School.
