PHS Athletes Honored for Talents On, Off the Field
Posted on 12/23/2014

Two Portland High School athletes were recently recognized for their talents, both on and off the field, by The Forecaster and the Maine Sunday Telegram newspapers.

Senior Madison Bolduc was recognized by The Forecaster as the PHS Female Athlete of the Fall for her outstanding play on the soccer pitch, as she helped lead the Lady Bulldogs to one of their most successful seasons in several years. Coach Arthur Mosen called her, “a quiet player who never seeks any kind of spotlight, but she's deserving of praise due to her character and willingness to lead by example." Madison was awarded the Bulldog Award this fall, given to the player who showed all the qualities of a true teammate throughout the season: compassion, commitment and the desire to play for something more than themselves. Along with her talent on the soccer field, Madison is also a member of the PHS indoor and outdoor track teams, the Key Club and the yearbook staff.

Jeremiah Israel-Copeland was recognized as The Forecaster's PHS Male Athlete of the Fall, and as a first-team member of the Maine Sunday Telegram's Class of the State football team. As a defensive tackle, center and guard, Jeremiah was the anchor of a gridiron defense that was one of the top in the state this fall. PHS football coach Jim Hartman called Jeremiah, “our mainstay on defense this season. Everything we did revolved around him. He's a good kid and a hard worker." Jeremiah was a constant presence around the ball, and his tireless work ethic was a trademark of his leadership and an example for his teammates to follow. Jeremiah has also found success on the wrestling and outdoor track teams.
