25th Annual Great Harbor Shoot Out Opens Play 

MDI (WABI TV5/CW) Many of the top area varsity teams from our region are on and around the Island this weekend as part of the 25th annual Great Harbor Shoot Out to benefit the Harbor House Community Service Center. 84 teams, boys and girls, of all calibers playing hoops through Sunday.

Three of this season’s state champions were on the floor tonight, two of them playing each other. In Bar Harbor, Class D boys champ Machias and class C boys champ George Stevens. The Eagles minus Taylor Schildroth who will be a senior next year. The big man battle though was fun. Jacob Godfrey for the Bulldogs and Max Mattson for the Eagles they are AAU teammates. We stopped in Southwest Harbor and saw perennial power Hermon girls squaring off with Brewer and also those class B state champ MDI boys facing John Bapst in Northeast Harbor. The championship games for this tournament are Sunday at Pemetic Elementary in Southwest Harbor.
