Season’s warm up


Members of the Golden Bucks girls’ soccer team practice their footwork with some one-touch passes at the start of practice. The team is looking to rebound from a 5-0 loss in the Class C state championship game last year.


Head coach Dave Svec surveys his squad as they warm up with some bear crawls during their first practice of the year. Though the team will play as the Ellsworth High School Eagles, the roster also contains students from Sumner Memorial High School and George Stevens Academy, among others.


Bucksport sophomore Jetta Shook had a standout rookie season in goal for the Golden Bucks on their way to an undefeated regular season in which they outscored opponents 113-8. Here she works through warm up drills during the team’s second practice of the season.

The Ellsworth High School eight-man football team enters this season with a lot of optimism as it is seemingly in line to play its first full season. The previous two were disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. “It’s tough to build continuity as a team when you’re shut down for multiple games,” said EHS Athletic Director Josh Frost. “We’re hopeful that this season we can start to build some momentum as a program.”
