BAR HARBOR, ME — Congratulations to Mission Scholarship recipient Dori LeMoine for earning the Great Northeast Athletic Conference Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Rookie of the Week.

According to a St. Joseph’s College of Maine news story (4/2/2019), freshman Dori LeMoine “shattered the (St. Joseph College) Monks’ outdoor records in the shot put (9.90m) and hammer throw (29.37) events in the UMass.-Dartmouth Invitational on Saturday.

LeMoine “already owns the Monks’ outdoor records for javelin throw (30.56m), shot put, and hammer throw as well as the indoor shot put mark (9.97m),” said the news story.

Mission Program Director for Scholarships Terri Rodick, in response to LeMoine’s athletic achievement said, “She is a great young woman. Shy, but funny. Family means very much to her.”

For the 2018 graduate of Mount Desert Island, “living on Swan’s Island and participating in extracurricular activities was no doubt a challenge,” continued Director Terri Rodick. “Dori is also a lobsterman during summers. She appreciates where she comes from and where she is going. If you ever need a helping hand, Dori LeMoine is one of the first to offer help,” said Rodick.
