CASTINE — Maine Maritime Academy Cross Country coach, Ryan King, announced the captains for the 2012-2013 seasonSamantha DePlanche (Dover, N.H.) will skipper the women’s team, while Noel Deserres-Gauthier (Dover, N.H.) will captain the men’s team. The selection process is made with the help of the outgoing senior class, led by the outgoing Captain Related Posts Methot Named NAC Runner of the Week Lady Mariners Fourth at Unity MMA Cross Country Runs at Regionals “The Cross Country captain is a leadership role in which the captain leads by example,” said King“This doesn’t mean that you try to do everything yourself but rather guide those around you to perform in the same manner the same tasks that you also perform.” “The captain responsibilities will be to generate team spirit, to lead warm up, stretches and cool downs, to be role models for all team members, to help organize summer running plans and to know their team mates and be a team spokesperson.” DePlanche has run for the Mariners the past three years and in 2009 was named to the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Second TeamA Marine Biology major, DePlanche served as the team’s captain in 2011. “Samantha is someone who I feel comfortable in leading the women’s team as it continues to grow,” noted King“She feels that she is up to continuing the challenge.” Deserres-Gauthier ’13, a Marine Engineering Operations major, was the top finisher for the Maine Maritime Men at the NCAA Dvision III New England Regional Championships at Bowdoin College in 2011With three years of experience on his running shoes, he is fit to lead the men’s squad. “Noel worked extremely hard to get selected,” said King“He never leaves anything unsaid on the trail and I’m confident that he will continue the fine leadership of his predecessor, Patrick Lindsey ’12 (Winthrop). After naming the captains, King reflected on the strides made away from the course in building the Academy’s program. “There were many firsts this year and it was time to recognize them,” said Head Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Coach Ryan King.  “We created a restricted giving account for the Men’s and Women’s Team and raised money through t-shirt sales but the accounts are set up to take donations of support.” “We offered to the Castine School children a Cross Country Youth XC Clinic for six weeks for preschoolers through eighth graders got to participate together for the first time in an after school activity.  We reached out to our alumni and received a number of responses about our program including one from the very first coach, Ed Hanson’58 of the Maine Maritime Academy Men’s Cross Country Team.  We began the tradition of holding the Mariner 5K during Family & Friends Weekend, and we invested in new uniforms and we wore them proudly at our races.” Members of the team in attendance said something that they were proud of or accomplished during the season.  Noel Deserres-Gauthier ’13 (Dover, N.H.) said “the half marathon long run” was what he was proud of and appreciated “how we are a small team that works together.”  Kyle Huston ’15 (Washburn) “enjoyed the organic fruit snacks” and fondly remembers “slipping in the finishing chute at the Unity Invitational.”  Kara Wood ’13 (Otisfield) running her first season for the cross country team “thought the no impact pool workouts were great.”  Jeremy Bullard ’13 (Manhattan, Kan.) also running his first season “was leery of the challenge of running his first five-mile race, but was glad to have had run it.” The Mariners 2012 campaign gets underway on August 31st at New England College.   For more sports news, pick up a copy of The Ellsworth American.
