Boone won every time she strapped on the skis this winter, capping one of the most triumphant careers in the history of the proud Yarmouth program.

Boone, who also excels in soccer and lacrosse, previously was chosen Yarmouth Winter Athlete of the Year as a sophomore, after winning the giant slalom and placing second in the slalom, leading the Clippers to the Class B state championship in the process. As a junior, Boone placed fourth in the GS.

This season, she left everyone in her wake.

Boone won every slalom and giant slalom race she participated in during the regular season. At the Western Maine Conference meet, Boone won the giant slalom with a two-run combined time of 1 minute, 21.75 seconds and the slalom in 1:37.83. Then, at the state meet, Boone won the GS in 1:40.22 and the slalom in 1:26.65, helping Yarmouth finish runner-up to Fort Kent.

Boone’s season didn’t end at states. She came in first in both the GS and slalom at the Maine Eastern High School championship qualifier to become the number one seed on the Maine team. At the championships at Attitash Mountain in New Hampshire, Boone placed 11th in giant slalom, the first finisher from Maine.

Boone, who scored a goal in the soccer state final fall to help the Clippers repeat as state champion, hopes to bow out with one more title this spring in lacrosse. She’ll then attend the University of Denver in Colorado.

Her competitive skiing days might be over, but Brooke Boone, Yarmouth’s Winter Athlete of the Year, has etched her name in program lore and will be impossible to replace.

Coach Sean Lynch’s comment: “Brooke has been a truly dedicated, hard worker when it comes to athletics and skiing in particular. She has been a driving force on the team who carries herself with a quiet, humble confidence and a clear drive to succeed while keeping things fun and light hearted. Brooke’s determination for excellence, both in practice and competition, has been contagious and has set the example for all. Brooke’s level of achievement is exceedingly rare and the entire Yarmouth coaching staff, ski team and Yarmouth community are extremely proud of her.”
