Scarborough Indoor Track

2009 Class A State Champions!


Indoor Track at Scarborough High School was started in 1980 by current assistant coach Steve Ross. Since 1983 Scarborough has been one of the elite programs in the State of Maine, winning eleven state championships along with ten state runners-up trophies. Scarborough has produced 49 individual state champions along with seven victorious relay teams. Scarborough athletes currently hold 2 Class B state records: Brian Johnson pole vault 14'0 3/4" and Tom Toye 300yds 32.28. The 2003-2004 season a change as Scarborough moved from Class B to Class A. With this move, we also moved back into the SMAA and competed in the Portland Expo one more time. From 1981-1997 Scarborough competed in the Portland Expo, then from 1998-2003 competed at the University of Southern Maine. The Indoor Track program is looking forward to another strong season with the goal of bringing home championship #13!


ďA true champion, when they lose, they donít get defeated. They get inspired by their loss. It makes them come back to practice. They canít wait to get to the track. They blame no one.Ē

We are in the championship season now this is what we have been training for all year long, letís continue to do things right and bring home some hardware. It wonít be easy but you guys need to have the confidence that you have worked hard and are ready to do big things. You have to be smart this week, sleep and no horse play are keys. Letís continue our impressive run this season donít be satisfied with what youíve done to this point, letís do it better next week and the week after!

Expo Meet 4

Scarborough continues to impress with 115 Ĺ-48-32.5 over Portland & Noble


Another convincing win last night, and strong all around performances. We got 3 new state qualifiers while 3 others improved on their state qualifying performances. We won 12 events, and improved our league leading Sr. Relay time. Congrats to Merrick Madden for tying the league record in the Jr. Hurdles (also a school record). We also had several improvements in our expo events which will aid us at the conference championship. We had a few mishaps which all teams have, rather get them out of the way this week rather in the championship meets. The coaches have stressed the importance of doing a thorough warm-up, you can never be warmed up enough especially for the sprints in the expo. Next week is a key meet for us for a couple of reason. First if we win weíll have an undefeated regular season (2nd in a row), and secondly itíll be our last chance to improve our standings in events for the conference meet. We want to have all the best options and have as many people running in the seeded sections at night as we can. Continue to focus on taking care of business, weíre getting close to what weíve been working towards all season, we need to be healthy and in the right mindset.

Expo Meet 3

Scarborough continues to roll with 125-44-28 over Cheverus & TA


Another all around dominating performance up and down the roster today. 9 new state qualifying performances as well and 1 new expo leader. We won 15 of the 19 events today which shows great quality but our depth was strong as well, we went 1-2-3 in 2 events. We have to stay focused the next two weeks before the championship season is here. We need to take care of any nagging injuries with extreme care, get the treatment necessary, we want to be at as close to full strength by the conference and state meets. Next week we will again focus on state qualifiers and improving our placement for conference. We have some work to do in a few events, and weíll need to count on a few others to step up and fill the holes. Individuals help win but it takes a TEAM effort to get to the ultimate goal. I feel we have the athletes who can step in an excel so we donít miss beat. Letís continue our excellence next week.

Expo Meet 2

Scarborough flexes muscle with 130-89.5-64.5-6 win over rival Deering & Bonny Eagle


Today was a great learning experience for all on the team. We didnít have things go the way we wanted to early on in the meet; in fact we were behind by 8 points after 9 of the 17 events. You all rose to the challenge, and we were able to show the rest of the league that weíre the top team. For those of you who are new to track this is only the 2nd time Deering has lost a regular season meet in 11yrs, and both are to Scarborough (last year we ended their streak). Now we have our toughest meets of the year out of the way, we can move some athletes around to different races to get state qualifying times, and also improve our options for the conference championship. Keep your focus, I know this week is finals week. Study hard, but also keep training, a break in studying to get some physical activity has been proven to improve your study habits. Letís get our workouts in, and get the job done in the classroom.

Expo Meet 1

Scarborough dominate in 128-54-17 Win


Great opening meet guys, we really showed that hard work and dedication pays off, all the work you have done in the offseason and know the pre-season really showed in our preparation today. We came ready to run up and down the roster, a true team effort today, we got scoring contributions out of a lot athletes(29 to be exact). Our relay passes were crisp, strong blocks starts, strong hurdling, we made good decisions on the track as well. This is the best our team has ever looked week 1, so give yourselves a pat on the back! Keep working itís a long way until the conference and state meet, what you do the next few weeks will be key in our success as a team down the road. Stay focused and come ready to run again next weekend!
