He would rarely get the ball dislodged when clearing the ball across the midfield.” South Portland made it to the Class A South semifinals, losing to Cape Elizabeth, and had two players honored for their play this season. Fiorini, a senior attack, had 51 points and 37 assists, good for a team-high 88 points. He holds the program record for most points in a game with 14 versus Gorham and is second all-time for his career with 266, second to his older brother, Jack Fiorini. David Fiorini scored nine goals in a win at Brunswick in May. He made the SMAA All-Star team and will play next year at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. “The hours David put into playing, shooting and weight training really got him over the top this year,” said Red Riots coach Tom Fiorini, David’s father. “His coaches next year love his vision, speed and playmaking ability, as I did also.” Mehlhorn, a senior attack, is a repeat All-American selection, joining Jack Fiorini as the only player to accomplish that in South Portland annals. Mehlhorn
had 53 goals and 30 assists this season to lead the Red Riots with 83 points. He holds the program record for most career goals (184) and points (308). Mehlhorn also had 46 ground balls in 2019 and was an SMAA first-team all-star. “Cooper’s quickness open field speed and stick skills set him apart from rest of field,” said Tom Fiorini. “His lacrosse IQ is crazy off the charts. He’s always trying to come up with plays to help the team.” Waynflete wasn’t able to repeat as Class C state champion, but did win nine games in a row in one stretch this spring. Lipton, a senior middie, naturally led the way, scoring 46 goals and adding nine assists in earning All-American honors for the second year in a row. Lipton made the Western Maine Conference all-star team and has committed to playing at Boston University. “In a sport that sees more and more specialization, Miles is the ‘do everything’ player,” said Flyers coach Parker Repko. “Some of the best defenses in the state dedicate their best player to shut him off and then still have an early slide ready to go because he is the most dangerous player on the field. He has a bright future.” Thornton Academy repeated as Class A state champions and boasted a pair of All-Americans.
Labreck, a senior middie, who scored the winning goal in overtime in the state final, and standout senior goalie Ean Patry were honored.
