AUGUSTA — Maine Rep. David Haggan (R-Hampden) was joined at the State House on March 29 by the Class A North Champion Hampden Academy Boys and Girls Basketball Teams, and the Hampden Unified Basketball Team that won the Unified Basketball North Regional Championship.

The teams were recognized by the House and Senate and presented with Legislative Sentiments.

In addition to honoring their teams’ successes, Hampden senior Ian McIntyre also was presented a sentiment for scoring his 1,000th career point.

Speaking on the floor of the House, Rep. Haggan congratulated the teams and expressed his pride in all of the student athletes: “I had the pleasure of having almost all of these players in my class … and I can tell you they are all fantastic people.”
