High School Record-Breaker Hermon Receives Maine Sports Hall of Fame Scholarship

Sydney Gallop was surprised to learn that she was receiving one of five $5,000 scholarships awarded to high school students by the Maine Sports Hall of Fame.

The Hermon High School football striker, who set the school record for goals with 112 career goals, was joined by Buxton’s two-way linesman Thomas Horton of Buxton’s Bonnie Eagle, Scarborough volleyball standout Madeleine Straus, Farmington’s Blue Mountain skier Emma Charles, and Marshwood School Eliot, outstanding tri-sport player Trevor Wozny.

Scholarships will be awarded at the Maine Sports Hall of Fame Scholars Brunch on Sunday morning at the Sunday River Resort in Newry.

“It means so much to me,” said Gallop, who was also a starting quarterback on the basketball team. “There were so many good applicants.”

Gallop, 17, will transfer her talents to St. Joseph’s College in Standish.

Hermon girls football coach M.J. Ball said that Gallop certainly deserved the scholarship.

“She’s a great actress,” Ball said. “She works very hard and she is so humble. She is ready to help anyone.”

He added that she is an outstanding student and football player, “and an even better person.”

Ball said that despite having double and triple teams on the football field, she “never got frustrated and continued to work hard.”
