The fall season has ended, and what an ending it was! 

The Clippers brought home four gold balls and saw numerous victories throughout the season!

Here are season roundups from the coaches:

Football - Coached by Jim Hartman, Mark Renna, Nick Orsi, Chris Emerson, Ilunga Mutombo, and Dan Houncehll

The 2022 team put in the work in the offseason, getting stronger and faster in the weight room with considerable effort from the team. The team pushed themselves hard through the summer, staying in the weight room, adding conditioning, and five-on-five workouts. The hard work paid off immediately with preseason efforts against Marancook and Telstar. The team opened the season with a big 45-6 win over the preseason favorite Lake Region. The team then traveled to Camden and handed them a solid defeat; they started coming together and believing in themselves. After opening up with a 2-0 record, the team won its next five games against GNG, Mount Desert Island, Morse, Greely, and Ellsworth. Next up was our rival, Mt. Ararat, who dealt the team their only season loss. However, the Clippers took what they had learned from the Mt Ararat loss into the playoffs. Sparked by Senior Captain Spencer Labrecque, the Clippers handed Spruce Mountain a 46 -0 win and advanced to the Southern Maine Regional Final game against Mt. Ararat. The defense led by Kai Sullivan, Rufus MacVane, and Sam Bradford led the Clippers to their first victory ever over Mt. Ararat and earned a trip to the State Championship Game.

Behind the running game of Junior Mike McGonagle and Senior Labrecque, the Clippers defeated Waterville 30-26 to win the school’s third State Championship. Besides winning its third State Championship, several Clippers broke season records. McGonagle set a new school record with 2565 rushing yards and scored 172 points. MacVane set the school for tackles in a season with 157 tackles, while LaBrecque and McGonagle tied the school record for quarterback sacks with seven each. It was a fantastic season that ended with a 10 – 1 record and a State Championship.

The Clippers dug an early hole in the State Final vs. Hermon getting down 0-2 late in the first half but came storming back to even the score at two just before the half, eventually scoring a Golden Goal in overtime to secure the program's 5th State Title all-time!

The 2022 fall season saw the boy's Soccer team win their 7th state title in the last 8 playoff opportunities and added to their state of Maine record state championship total (see below). This team was led by a fabulous senior class, especially captains Liam Hickey, Stevie Walsh, Truman Peters, & Owen Redfield. We welcomed a fantastic bunch of new Mainers onto our team, and they positively impacted the field and the soccer community. 

Here is a list of this year's accomplishments, along with a few other historical stats:

Subvarsity Boy’s Soccer - Coached by Justin Morrill and Ben Vigue

The sub-varsity boy's soccer team saw immense growth over the season. Every athlete saw ample playing time and improved in their skills. There were many first-team and junior varsity games, and with a fluid roster, athletes on the sub-varsity team saw minutes in both. The teams battled hard all year and won some pretty close games. We look forward to next season and these athletes' growth.

Golf - Coached by Dave Cousins, Joey Morrill, and Dave Cox

The 2022 Yarmouth Golf team had another impressive season. Having said that, the expectation from the golfers was to repeat as State Champions, but they fell short and placed tied for the third position in the State Finals. However, this year's squad won the Western Maine Championship and managed to go undefeated during the regular season. The Clippers were led by Sebastien Martinez (Jr.), Andrew Cheever (Jr.), Quinn Federle (Sr.), and Nate Hagedorn (Sr.), all were returning golfers from last year's State Championship team.

Also contributing to this year's varsity team were senior Will Pattison (who shrugged off an early season injury), David Swift (Jr.), Hugh O'Donnell (a sophomore who was new this season after transferring to Yarmouth), and upstart Freshman Colby Carnes. "Even though we fell a bit short in our overall goal of a repeat State Championship, the season was still enjoyable and full of great golf," said Head Coach David Cousins. "It is not an easy position being chased all season by other teams, but that is what happens when you are the defending champs. But we kept our poise all season and handled it well. Unfortunately, in our biggest match of the season, things did not go as we had hoped...but that is what sports and competition are all about," Cousins said.

The future looks bright for Yarmouth golf. All the returning golfers are talented enough to make it into the scoring slots if they continue to work at their games. It should be another year where the Clippers could compete for another title.


Subvarsity Golf - Coached by Joey Morrill

Subvarsity golf had a very successful season, including a big win vs. GNG in the season opener. The improvement from every golfer on the team was incredible, and their efforts paid off against tough opponents such as Brunswick & York. We look forward to continuing to build off of this year's success and hit the ground running next fall! 


Field Hockey - Coached by Molly Saunders and Paige Seymour

The #5 Clippers ended their season with a 1-0 loss to #4 Leavitt in the Quarterfinal round of playoffs. They ended their season with an 8-7 record and are not graduating any seniors. Sophie Smith scored numerous hat tricks, and Colleen Lynch was a dominant force in the midfield. Many underclassmen saw a lot of varsity minutes, including Sally McGrath who had an impression long stroke. Quincey Schnee made incredible saves all year, and our defensive line was strongly led by Aubrey Collier, Emilia Corey, and Sabina Petrucci.  Some season highlights include taking Freeport (the runner-up in the state championship) to an overtime game, the numerous hat tricks Sophie Smith scored, and the team's immense growth over the 2022 fall season. We are looking forward to next year.


Subvarsity Field Hockey - Coached by Paige Seymour

The JV team was a small but mighty force. They only had a few substitutes, but they worked hard every game, playing most games 7-v-7 (traditionally 11-v-11). They had great attitudes and significantly improved over the season. This group of athletes was fun to work with, and we are excited for next year!


Cross Country - Coached by Sarah Carrigan, Dana Hatton, and Chuck Thorpe

We had a great XC season, with PRs aplenty and some fantastic individual performances! Our fastest time was laid by Stuart Baybutt at 17:44 at the Southern Maine Classic Meet for boys and 20:00.87 at the Maine Festival of Champions by Madeleine Jones. Our best State Championship finisher was Cameron Pernal, who finished 26th in 18:13 at Twin Brooks. Overall, everyone saw improvement, and we had fun running!


Volleyball - Coached by Jim Senecal, Eric Dube, Erin Quirk, and Andrea St. Pierre

The YHS Volleyball team won their fourth Class B State Championship in a row, and with this win, they have won 7 of the last 11 state championships. They finished their season 16-1. We are graduating six outstanding seniors including Dorcas Bolese, Leila Tati Pambou, Brianna Torres, Alla Elhai, Samantha Beaudoin, and Molly Sullivan. Each of these athletes has made a significant impact on the court and on the program and they will be missed. Dorcas Bolese, Leila Tati Pambou, Grace Keaney, and Annie Vinnakota had numerous impressive kills, blocks, and spikes for us this year.  Bri Torres, Alla Elhai, Madi Beaudoin, Norah Lushman, and Leila Brewer had impressive service points all year. The team had great chemistry and is looking to come back next year stronger than ever! We will miss our beloved Jim Senecal, as he is retiring but know that we will carry on his legacy as we move forward.


Subvarsity Volleyball- Coached by Erin Quirk and Andrea St. Pierre

Subvarsity volleyball saw incredible improvements over the season. From improving their serves to impressive rallies, this team has worked hard all year. We were able to mix in first-team and junior varsity games so athletes of all experience levels could play in a very fluid team setting. The positive attitude of this team was contagious, and we are excited to see their growth into next season.
