   Massabesic High School has been very successful in sports this year and many students have done great things for their athletic careers. One student in particular, Hope Saucier a senior at MHS, attended the Hood Sportsmanship Scholarship award banquet on May 7, 2017. The Hood Sportsmanship Scholarship awards student athletes $5,000 for those who are a good sport on the field, in the classroom, and in the community. After thousands of applications for the scholarship, 60 finalists had interviews and 18 of them got the scholarship award. Hood congratulated each athlete with $5,000 and they get to be in the Hood Sportsmanship Scholarship Hall of Fame. Hope Saucier said her and the winners, ‘went to the Hood banquet, got a tour of Gillette Stadium, walked through the locker room and all of the ‘behind the scenes’, got to stand almost on the field, met Gord Kluzak who spoke to us regarding sportsmanship, and got to have lunch in a box seating area that people are on a waitlist for 20 years to see a game!” These finalists showed how memorable they are on the field, in the classroom, and in the community. “This experience has been incredible and I can’t express how much I appreciate the amazing support I received,” Hope noted. Hope also thanked the school, teachers, and coaches for their support and guidance in what she has accomplished as a student athlete. “Thank you all so so much.”
