2018- 2019

Devin Weir '19

Hebron’s Track and Field team finished the season with 3rd place finishes at MAISADS for both the girls’ and boys’ teams. Devin Weir ‘19 has been a top scorer in individual events and relay teams all season, and the league’s final meet was no exception.

Weir was a tremendous asset to the track and field team this year. Having taken a year off to try lacrosse, Hebron’s coaches were happy that he returned to participate in all three throwing events this spring. Weir consistently scored well in the Shot Put, Discus, and Javelin events throughout the season and achieved a personal best and a first place ribbon in the Javelin with a 130’5” throw at MAISADS.

Weir also ran on the green and white’s boys’ 4x100m relay this season - a team that often came in second, if not first. He will represent Hebron at the NEPSAC Championships hosted by St. George’s School in Rhode Island on Saturday, May 18th.

Jaylon Tucker

Hebron’s Track and Field team finished the season with 3rd place finishes at MAISADS for both the girls’ and boys’ teams. Jaylon Tucker ‘19 has been a top scorer in individual events and relay teams all season, and the league’s final meet was no exception.

All season, Tucker dominated the 100m dash, consistently running an 11 second sprint to win the race. Jaylon was Hebron’s sole jumper for the boys this season, competing in both the Long Jump and Triple Jump. He earned first place marks for both events at all of the Lumberjacks’ meets, doing so once again at the MAISAD meet hosted by Hyde School. With his Long Jump consistently in the 20 foot range and his Triple Jump reaching just shy of 43 feet, Jaylon earned admiration and high praise from his competitors and the officials running the events. His athleticism, genuine humor, sportsmanship, and camaraderie did not go unnoticed by his coaches, nor the coaches from Hyde, NYA, Seacoast Christian Academy, and Bradford Christian Academy. The decision was unanimous and Jaylon received the MVP award for the MAISAD meet.

Tucker also ran on the green and white’s boys’ 4x100m relay this season - a team that often came in second, if not first. he will represent Hebron at the NEPSAC Championships hosted by St. George’s School in Rhode Island on Saturday, May 18th. Tucker earned a fourth place finish in the 100m dash to add to his accomplishments on the season.

Tounarouze El Yazidi ‘19

Hebron’s girls’ tennis team finished their second consecutive undefeated regular season and took a 19-match winning streak into the postseason when the Lumberjacks earned a berth as the #2 seed into the NEPSAC Class D tournament. It was no coincidence that the green and white had a strong player at the top of the lineup during this two year stretch. Tounarouze El Yazidi ‘19 joined the Lumberjacks in 2017 during her sophomore year. After losing her first match of the season, she rattled off 38 straight victories over three years.

Opposing coaches have described her as “fierce,” “powerful” and “at a different level.” During her final 48 hours for Hebron, she captured her third straight MAISAD Singles title and won both of her individual matches at the NEPSAC tournament where the Lumberjacks beat Watkinson 3-2 in the semis and then fell to Christian Heritage in the Final. It was the first NEPSAC Final in program history, and El Yazidi will go down as one of the most successful individuals to grace the Hebron tennis program.

Juan Pablo Garcia de Luca Medina ‘22

In the month of April, Hebron’s boys’ tennis team achieved a lot of success with a 3-1 record with wins over Hyde, Berwick and Fryeburg Academy. In their opening match of the season, they suffered their lone defeat, but Juan Pablo Garcia ‘22 showed that he was going to be a tough matchup for opponents in Maine this season. Playing #2 singles for the Lumberjacks, Garcia fell behind early in the opening set, but came back to capture it 7-4 in a tiebreak. In the second, he struggled to find his consistency, but his perseverance in the third set paid off as he won the 10-point tiebreak 10-7.

In his next two matches, Garcia cruised to a 6-0, 6-2 triumph against Gould and then once again needed to come from behind to win a three-set match versus Berwick. After falling in the opening set 6-4, Garcia won the second set 6-3. In the third, he fell behind quickly, but he rallied to win the third set in a tiebreak 7-5 to seal the win for the Lumberjacks on the day.

Ruth Cetina Jimenez ‘19

The girls’ lacrosse team opened the season with five tough opponents in the month of April. Ruth Cetina Jimenez ‘19 has been an important presence for the Lumberjacks throughout the opening part of the campaign. She has worked consistently at practice each day and her determination, spirit, and hustle on game days has been noteworthy.

Cetina has contributed to the green and white’s offensive effort as well throughout the season, scoring goals in five of their first eight contests. Whether in a win or a loss, Cetina has played hard to the final buzzer, always giving her best for the team.

Josh Petrocelli '19

Josh Petrocelli ‘19 finished the season ranked first overall in the MAISAD snowboarding standings. During the season, he convincingly won four out of the six MAISAD slopestyle competitions. His performances included the highest-scoring single run of the season at Sunday River on January 11, and he recorded huge margins of victory at two events hosted by Kents Hill.

Josh has claimed the overall league title in three of his four years representing Hebron, as he finished off his career strong this winter. Josh dominated the slopestyle events with his smooth technique and high level of difficulty, and the judges always looked forward to watching Josh's runs. Regularly, they commented on his clean and powerful snowboarding style.

Franceska Halloran '19

Franceska Halloran ‘19 became Hebron Academy’s first ever 1,000-point scorer this winter when she achieved the feat at Seacoast Christian School on January 18th. Halloran spent all four years of her career as the starting point guard for the Lumberjacks as she led the green and white to the MPA playoffs during each season.

Compiling a record of 49 wins and 27 losses in her time at Hebron, the Lumberjacks captured two MAISAD titles and played in the league championship game each year. On top of her other honors, Halloran was also selected by the Maine Association of Basketball Coaches to compete in the McDonald’s Senior All-Star. Halloran finished her career with a total of 1,146 points to her name.

Cynthia Rose '21

Hebron's home cross country course is one of the toughest in New England, but the training that happens on the course - and particularly The Wall - proved once again to be outstanding for Cynthia Rose '21. She ended the season by finishing second at the MAISAD meet at the University of Maine - Augusta and then earned a 10th-place finish in the New England Division IV race at Marianapolis Prep School in Connecticut. 
 
In the final league meet of the season, Rose cruised to a second-place finish crossing the finish line more than a minute ahead of the third-place runner. She followed that up on a cold day with very muddy and wet conditions at Marianapolis. Rose made her hard work pay off with an impressive time of 23:08 to earn all-NEPSAC recognition for her 10th place finish. As a result, she received an invitation to an elite all-star race the following weekend. 

Spencer Ryall '20

Hebron's boys' hockey team is off to a 2-2 start thanks in large part to the efforts of forward Spencer Ryall. The Lumberjacks opened their season with an impressive home win against Brewster, and then after dropping games to Holderness and Gunnery, the green and white bounced back to beat Vermont Academy 6-2 this past Sunday.
 
Ryall began the season with two goals and three assists when Hebron beat Brewster 7-1, and he added his third goal of the season against Holderness to finish the month of November with a +2 on-ice performance. Ryall and the Lumberjacks will look to continue their strong start in their next game of the campaign when they host Bridgton on Friday night in the opening game of the Maine Prep Cup. Also hosting Kents Hill and North Yarmouth Academy in the showcase, Robinson Arena is in for some strong play this upcoming weekend. 

Aarti Singh '20

The girls' soccer team at Hebron has been lucky this fall to have a reliable set of hands in the net with Aarti Singh standing strong in between the pipes. Over her final seven games of the season, Singh averaged eight saves per game - including 18 saves on the road at New Hampton on October 17th.

Singh came to Hebron from Mumbai, India. She started 13 games this season and 16 during the 2017 campaign when she arrived as a sophomore. As the starting goalkeeper, Singh has recorded 236 saves in her two seasons for the Lumberjacks. Singh will cap off her junior campaign by making an appearance in the New England Prep School Women's Soccer Association's Junior All-Star Game on Sunday, November 18th.

Konstantin Hellge '19

Hebron's football team has had been led this season on both sides of the ball by Konstantin Hellge. As an accomplished pass receiver, Hellge came to Hebron this year from Berlin, Germany for a post-graduate season. Throughout the fall, he has polished his blocking skills and has developed into a productive defensive end and linebacker. 

In the Lumberjacks' contest at Cushing on October 13th, Hellge caught a long pass on the right sideline to help the green and white get into the red zone. The Lumberjacks ran a running play and scored a touchdown and then Hellge caught the pass on the two-point conversion. Hellge and his teammates will play their final game of the season against Kents Hill on Saturday, November 10th. The annual Headmaster's Chair Game is set to kick-off at 1:00 on Hebron's Dwyer Fields.

Thekla Jubinville '20

Hebron's field hockey team is off to a great start to the season as they posted a 4-1 record throughout the month of September. This included three wins over Lakes Region opponents from New Hampshire with the final moment of September's play coming with no time on the clock in overtime against Proctor. Thekla Jubinville '20 recorded the goal in that final moment as the Lumberjacks scored on a double penalty corner to secure a 1-0 victory.
 
Jubinville's play over the first five games of the season has been highlighted by far more than this crucial game-winner. As the team's go-to playmaker, Jubinville's fitness has been on display as a contributor on both sides of the ball. She is a true two-way player running much of the play on both defense and attack. Her stick skills are recognizably strong and she is heard loud and clear as the team's vocal leader in the middle of the field. Hebron's next game will be on Friday, October 5th when the green and white travel to rival Kents Hill.

Jaime Aguado Sanchez

The boys' soccer team has opened their season with a very tough schedule. Over the course of the month of September, they matched up with three of the Lakes Region teams all on the road in New Hampshire. In their most recent game, Jaime Aguado Sanchez '19 recorded both goals in a 2-2 tie against the Holderness Bulls.
 
On the season, Aguado Sanchez has shown an incredible ability to read the game in terms of what his opponents are thinking before and as they make decisions. He anticipates how to play in those instances defensively and offensively. He has a soccer brain that puts him at another level tactically and this has been huge for his teammates to witness and learn from. His two long range goals against Holderness School show his capability for leading the team in goals from the midfield position. The Lumberjacks will play their first home game of the season on Saturday, October 6th when they host Brewster.
