Hannah Scully (Saco) named 2012 Maine Games Youth Athlete of the Year

Seventeen year-old Hannah Scully, of Saco, has been named the 2012 Maine Games Youth Athlete of the Year.

Since 2003, and the Maine Games' first year in existence, this Thornton Academy senior has been the most prolific athlete in the organization's 10-year history.

In 2003, Scully, then an eight-year old baton twirler, won her first Maine Games medal (gold). Her eight-year participation record has led her to the medal podium more than 30 times.

Competing in team, solo, pairs, and two-baton events in the Maine Games State Baton Twirling Championships, Scully has been a part big part of every twirling event offered by the Pine Tree State's official State Games.

In 2004 and 2005, she also ran in the Maine Games State Track and Field Championships at Fitzpatrick Stadium, in Portland, winning a gold and two silver medals in the 50m and 100m, respectively.

Marshwood Hawk finding Joy on the field

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Luke Joy, a junior lineman on the Marshwood Hawks football team, has a helping hand on the sidelines and in the huddle - his American Sign Language interpreter.

"I just love the game. I want to show that I can do it," said Luke, who is hearing impaired, before a recent practice. 

"Sometimes I don't know when the play ends because I am not watching exactly where the ball is," he admitted.  "I don't hear the whistle, so sometimes other players have to tap me to say 'that's it. Stop'."

Joanne Weiss is one of the interpreters who acts as Luke's ears both at practice and during games.

"As the interpreters, we learn the plays. We know the calls. We know the signs that the coach uses, which is their own invention and then we have the ASL sign for it," explained Weiss.
