Please join us in congratulating Elizabeth Prelgovisk, of Messalonskee High School, on being inducted into the University of Maine Sports Hall of Fame for 2022 – representing the sport of swimming.

An article released by the University of Maine shares, “The Class of 2022 Hall of Famers was selected by the UMaine Sports Hall of Fame committee and approved by Director of Athletics Ken Ralph. The induction dinner and ceremony [was] held on Friday, October 21 at Jeff’s Catering in Brewer, Maine.
Carone Prelgovisk is one of the most accomplished swimmers in school history. Carone Prelgovisk led the Black Bears to three New England titles and a runner-up finish her senior year in 1981. Individually, Carone Prelgovisk captured five first place honors and numerous runner-up finishes at the New England Championships. She earned New England titles in the 400-yard medley relay, 800-yard freestyle relay, 200-yard medley relay, 50-yard backstroke, 100-yard individual medley, 200-yard individual medley, 50-yard breaststroke, and again in the 400-yard medley relay her senior season. For her career, she scored more New England Championship points than any other swimmer in her class. This recognition was known as the Kay Fromer Award, named after a prominent coach who had died from cancer. At the time of her graduation, Carone Prelgovisk was a part of three school-record relay teams, in the 200-yard medley, the 400-yard medley, and the 800-yard freestyle.”
