Congratulations to the Merriconeag Ultimate Frisbee Team! At the State Championship Meet on Sunday the Merriconag Ultimate Team made it all the way to semi-finals (the final four). They won an extremely hard-fought victory over Greely High School to make it to the final four where they lost a gutsy game to Fryeburg. In the game against Fryeburg, Merriconeag Ultimate (MU) did not give up! They were down 7-1 early and fought hard and with a lot of heart to end the season with a 15-10 loss. Best of all, for the second year in a row, Merriconeag won the Spirit of the Game award! Congratulations to Coach Young and MU for a great season.
