Alex Sobolov, the Athletic Direc- tor for Newfound Regional High School, informed me that “it has always been a very positive day for the Newfound area.”
The Newfound Athletics Hall of Fame idea originated in 2016 by Peter Cofran, who served as the Athletic Director for over twelve years. People can nom- inate notable athletes with the nomination form that can be found on the athletics website. Just like athletes, coaches, teams, and contributors to Newfound Athlet- ics can be nominated. Once folks are selected, the Hall of Fame Selection Committee will vote on the nominees. Sobolov said, “It’s great to recognize the folks who have helped shape Newfound.” Thanks to the community, the Newfound Hall of Fame has continued with their support and nominations throughout these past six years. Sobolov stated, “the response from the commu- nity has been well received.”
Sobolov is currently accepting nominations for 2022 inductees, so please fill out the form on the athletics website if you have any- one in mind for a potential nom- inee. Let’s make sure that these people’s success and contribu- tions are noticed!

The sixth annual Newfound Athletics Hall of Fame will be held on Sunday, October 3rd at 11 am at the high school during homecoming weekend! The well-deserved inductees were nominated and will be honored at the ceremony surrounded by their friends and family.
The 2021 inductees have made tremendous strides in their athletic careers, and we should recognize their impact on the community. This year, the ath- letes who will be honored have made their community proud with their endless strength and determination. For example, Kelsey (Watson) Maxwell, a 2006 graduate of NRHS, was a three- sport athlete playing field hockey, basketball, track & field. During her senior year, she was captain of the field hockey and the bas- ketball team, and she currently still holds four NRHS track re- cords. When Watson graduated, she went on to run track at East- ern Connecticut.
Diane (O’Connor) George-
Hall of Famers Take Newfound
   was a 1973 graduate of Newfound Memorial High School. Her time at Newfound Memorial was spent playing field hockey, basketball, and softball
with also being captain for
field hockey & basketball. George was also part of
the 1972 NMHS girls bas- ketball state title and 1973 run- ner-up team. She went on to play field hockey, basketball, & softball at Plymouth State.
Brothers Trevor and Dean Brown and best friend Calvin
Follansbee were all graduates of Bristol High School in 1942 and were part of elite baseball teams during their time there. They all impressively led the baseball team to a 10-0 record and gained the
Pemi League title. Unfortunately, Calvin & Trevor tragically lost their lives ten days apart from each other while serving our country in WWII.
The 1994-1995 NRHS Boys Basketball Team, which coach Dan Peters led, is also an in- ductee. The boys finished the reg- ular season with a record of 19-4 and won the championship over Conant at Plymouth State. They had two 1,000 point scorers, Ethan Holmes & Eric Pescinski.
The inductees and their guests can expect to enjoy a lovely cere- mony where they will be honored with their plaques that will be hung up in Newfound Regional for a year. Former hall of fame inductees are also welcome to come and enjoy the day while supporting the current honorees.
