FAIRFIELD — The recent spike in interest in lacrosse at Lawrence High School has made physical education teacher Josh Blaisdell pretty popular amongst the study body in between classes.

Posted: May 25th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

VINALHAVEN — It's a road trip that takes more patence than waiting for that perfect pitch.

 

First up for the Buckfield Junior/Senior High School baseball team, a three-plus-hour rollick across the winding, pothole-dotted back roads of Maine.

 

Then, a ferry. After loading the vessel, the team makes the final leg — a 75-minute ride — over western Penobscot Bay's following seas and rolling waves to one of Maine’s largest and most inhabited islands — Vinalhaven.

Posted: May 24th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

WALES — Matty Martin is always looking for a new challenge, which is part of the reason the four-year Oak Hill starting goaltender was drawn to the position in the first place.

 

Before he proved to be the Raiders' staple between the pipes, Martin's lacrosse career began as an attack in seventh grade. But when he realized the position might not be for him, he looked for a new challenge.

LISBON — Within minutes of his knee buckling beyond its limits on a Saturday afternoon in November, Kyle Bourget began playing the role of orthopedic surgeon and amateur mathematician.

 

Lisbon’s senior football quarterback and baseball pitching ace knew enough from a lifetime in sports to diagnose the injury: A torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. While the Greyhounds gutted out a playoff victory in his absence, Bourget added and subtracted numbers in his head, seeking reassurance that his high school athletic career wasn’t over.

AUGUSTA — On a cold, snowy day in March, Keith Gleason and Rob Berube hiked the length of Augusta’s Piggery Road to get to McGuire Field. Once there, the duo shoveled snow until they hit the dirt behind McGuire Field’s home plate. That’s what they were there for.

 

“This was Evan’s office, for 30 years,” Gleason said, as he and Berube began chipping away to collect some of the frozen dirt.

LISBON — Saturday’s Mountain Valley Conference matchup between Winthrop and Lisbon figured to be a low-scoring pitcher’s duel featuring two of the conference’s top hurlers.

 

Winthrop had other ideas. The Ramblers roughed up Lisbon ace Kyle Bourget for 13 of its 14 hits, which was more than enough for lefty Ben Allen in a convincing 10-1 victory.
