Offered by: Representative Holmes of Bethel.
Whereas, the 1997 Whitcomb Hornets Boys' Soccer Team played in a skillful manner throughout the regular season, and
Whereas, they entered the playoff competition for the Division IV title prepared to demonstrate their proficiency and prowess on the field, and
Whereas, in their initial post-season contest, the Hornets convincingly shut out their opponents from Concord Junior-Senior High School 3-0 when they dominated the second half with three successive and impressive scoring plays, and
Whereas, the Hornets turned back a well-regarded squad from Proctor, retaining the lead throughout the second half to emerge from the chilly afternoon of soccer with a 3-2 victory, and
Whereas, when they confronted their ultimate opponent from Rochester on another frigid day, the Hornets' goalie, Kory Richards repeated his fine showing against Proctor by never yielding a single goal, and
Whereas, the 1-0 championship victory was clinched by a timely goal that seniors Mitch Rhoades and Tom Taplin quickly improvised, and
