AUGUSTA – Three Edward Little High School teams were recognized by the Maine Senate and Gov. John Baldacci for winning major championships in their respective sports. The student-athletes, who were guests of Sen. Neria Douglass (D-Auburn), received formal recognition from the Legislature for their efforts.

The Edward Little High School boys hockey team was recognized for winning the second consecutive Class A State Hockey Championship, while the girls nordic ski team and the girls combined ski team were recognized for winning Class A state championships.

“It was a lot of fun having the students come to Augusta to see a little bit about how legislative process works and receive recognition from the Legislature for their hard work and accomplishments,” said Douglass.

“As a mother of two former and one current Edward Little students, I was proud to be able to invite the student-athletes to Augusta for winning these championships. High school athletics can be a great motivator for students-teaching them a lot of great life lessons,” Douglass said.
