Class D football champs recognized at school committee meeting

At its meeting on December 6th, the Wells-Ogunquit CSD School Committee recognized the Wells High School Football team for winning the 2023 Class D State Championship game over Foxcroft Academy on November 18th in Lewiston.  The final score was 22 to 21. 

The last 30 seconds of the game produced a dramatic come-from-behind victory for Wells over undefeated Foxcroft Academy when Wells quarterback Brooks Fox tossed the ball to Connor Whitten who then crossed the goal line scoring the winning 2 points.

“I have never seen a game like that,” said Superintendent James Daly on stage in the Wells High School Performing Arts Center in his comments to the team seated in the audience.  “I thought you all played great.”   Daly, a former school principal, high school teacher and football coach added, “…they’re going to remember that (how the game was played) for the next 40 to 50 years.  Great job.”

Following Daly’s comments Interim Assistant Superintendent Pierce Cole and School Committee Chair Helena Ackerson congratulated each coach and team member on stage with a Certificate of Recognition on behalf of the Committee and the Wells-Ogunquit Community School District.
