Brewer — Five Camden Hills Regional High School ice hockey players were recognized on Sunday, March 11 at the Class B North banquet.

Cam Christie was selected a third-team forward, Dan Lydon third-team defenseman and Matt Czuchra third-team goalie. Additionally, Bruce Tyler was named an honorable mention and Sarah Contento to the academic team.

Christie, a senior co-captain, is a smooth skater and skilled playmaking center with great vision, said Windjammer coach Karl Enroth. Christie had led the Windjammers in scoring with seven goals and three assists through 10 games, until he suffered a season-ending collarbone injury in January.

Lydon, a senior co-captain, is a strong shutdown defenseman who routinely contained opponent's best players, the coach said. Lydon also contributed offensively with two goals and nine assists.

Czuchra, a senior, was a stalwart in net and performed yeoman duties between the pipes. Czuchra routinely kept his team in games, coach Enroth said, as he finished with 388 saves and a goal-against average of 3.43.

Tyler, a junior, is a fast-skating forward with a quick snap shot, the coach said. Tyler led the Windjammers in scoring with 13 goals and three assists playing wing and center.

Sarah Contento, a senior, is a smart, reliable player at the center position, Enroth said, and scored her first varsity goal this season. She is a high-honors student-athlete who plays three varsity sports — soccer, ice hockey and lacrosse — at Camden Hills.

The guest speaker at the banquet was former University of Maine Black Bear goalie Dan Sullivan (2010-14), who now attends medical school.

Other Class B North awards went to: Presque Isle's Carl Flynn, coach of the year; Hampden Academy, team sportsmanship; and Old Town's Jacob Dubay, player of the year.

Old Town-Orono was recognized for winning the state Class B championship on March 10 with a 3-2 victory against Greely of Cumberland. It was the fifth straight season Class B North had a team win the state championship.
