Black Bears tabbed for hockey accolades

OLD TOWN, Maine — Several members of the Old Town-Orono hockey team were recently honored with all-star accolades for Class B North.

Traditionally a hockey banquet is held to honor the student-athletes, but this year, amid COVID-19 concerns, the ceremony was canceled. 

Old Town-Orono finished the regular season with a 12-5-1 record and were the No. 2 seed in Class B North this year. The Black Bears beat Brewer 3-0 in the quarterfinals, bested Messalonskee 6-0 in the semifinals and defeated Presque Isle 6-2 in the regional championship. 

The Black Bears fell to Greely 5-1 in the state championship.

Named to the second-team all stars were Tyler McCannall and Nate Young, while Sam Henderson and Tanner Evans both received fourth-team all star honors. Dylan Street received honorable mention.

Adam Henderson and Aidan Rand were chosen for the first-team all-rookie squad, while Peyton Vose was named to the second-team all-rookie club.

Receiving all-academic honors was Gabe Talon.

Correction: An earlier version of this story misnamed the team.
