Two Lee Academy athletes to be inducted into school’s hall of fame

A pair of recent Lee Academy athletic standouts will be inducted in the school’s athletic hall of fame at 6 p.m. Saturday at MacDonald Gym.

Brooke Harris (2004-08) and Tyler Thompson (2002-06) were selected as 2014 inductees.

Harris was part of 13 regional championship teams and seven state championship squads during her four years at Lee, excelling in girls soccer, cross country, basketball and softball.

In soccer, she was a four-year starting midfielder helping the Pandas to four consecutive regional titles and two Class D state titles.

She also participated in cross country, leading the team to its only state title in 2004 and an Eastern Maine title the next season, and she was a three-year starter in basketball, part of a group that won three state titles.

Harris excelled in softball, helping Lee win three regional titles (2005-07) and the school’s only state championship in 2006. She holds all Lee Academy pitching records including career wins (59), playoff wins (11), single season wins (17), career strikeouts (350), and career and single season ERA (1.50 and 1.14 ). She pitched every inning of every game her sophomore, junior and senior years.

She went on to star in soccer at the University of Maine at Fort Kent.

Thompson was a two-sport standout at Lee, playing key roles on the school’s basketball and baseball teams.

He was a guard on the boys basketball team, a lockdown defender who also was an excellent passer and accomplished three-point shooter. He helped guide the Pandas to the school’s first ever No. 1 Heal point ranking in 2005.

On the diamond, he became one of Lee’s all-time greats. He helped the team reach three straight regional finals resulting in two regional titles and the Pandas first and only baseball state championship in 2006.

He finished his Lee career with a .491 career batting average, .611 on-base percentage, 40 extra base hits, and 100 RBIs.

He also was a top pitcher and played for the Lincoln American Legion before starring at Grove City College in Pennsylvania.

Tickets for the ceremony are $20. Those seeking more information may email Randy Harris at randyharris@leeacademy.us or call 290-7844.
