Having participated in five varsity sports during his career at Bonny Eagle High School, Aron Semle has made his impact on the athletic scene at the Standish school. A three-year soccer player, he was an All-SMAA defender as a junior. During his senior year, he joined the Bonny Eagle crosscountry program and was part of that squad's State Class A runner-up season. A four-year member of the Bonny Eagle indoor track program, he was the SMAA champion in the 40 yard event during his sophomore and senior years and Senior 400 champion during his senior campaign. He qualified for four state championship meets in indoor track and was state runner-up in the 55-meter dash in 2004. After starting as Bonny Eagle's centerfielder in baseball as a freshman, he joined the outdoor track squad and has served as captain of that team during the past two seasons.
A fine student, Aron is ranked eleventh in a class of 279 students with a career grade point average of 4.00. Very interested in the social sciences, he won the Bonny Eagle Economics Award in 2003. During both his sophomore and junior years, he was a Maine state champion at National History Day and earned the right to compete in the national competition at the University of Maryland. Aron is also Bonny Eagle's nominee for the Wendy's High School Heisman Award and was a state finalist this past year.
Aron has been accepted at the University of Ohio, Clemson, the University of Delaware, the University of Maine, and Montana State University, but was undecided at press time. He is interested in majoring in electrical or computer engineering. He is the son of Scott and Debra Semle of Hollis.
