Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: January 26th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Several second-year standouts are playing leading roles for some of the top girls' basketball teams in Western Class A.

By Bob Beatham..I apologize. For those of you who have come to this spot each week looking for a celebration of all that is good and praiseworthy in the area of high school athletics, I am sorry.

Monmouth's patience pays off in win over Oak Hill

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: January 25th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

MONMOUTH — Sometimes patience isn't an obstacle but an opportunity. Earlier in the year, the slowing down of the offense and trying to run a patient play might have felt like being shackled for the Monmouth girls' basketball team. The Mustangs thought holding on to the ball and looking for the right shot might have cramped their style. Saturday, that wasn't the case. The plan was to be patient and the Mustangs made it pay off. "That's the first time this year where we tried to be patient with the ball," Monmouth coach Scott Wing said. "The kids didn't take it as 'We don't score.' Earlier in the year, they were thinking that I didn't want them to shoot. That's not the case. We wanted to be looking for that shot going to the basket. We finally got one of them there in the fourth quarter."...

Isaiah and Eli Calder give Leavitt brotherly boost

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: January 25th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

By KALLE OAKES..TURNER — Once a common experience in rural, working-class Maine, brothers starting together on the same varsity basketball team is decidedly rare in the tri-county region these days. Isaiah and Eli Calder of Leavitt are one of only two such combinations this winter. Austin and Andrew Darling of neighboring Spruce Mountain are the other. There have been a handful of other examples in recent years. The Barnies twins of Edward Little, Troy and Travis, come to mind, and Travis and Tyler Frost shared in a state championship at Dirigo. But with families having either fewer children or choosing to space them farther apart, it’s an exception rather than a rule...

Posted: January 25th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

YARMOUTH—With nary a senior to be found on its roster, Yarmouth's girls' basketball team has had to come of age quickly this winter. o much so that the Clippers are perhaps a year ahead of schedule and ready to contend now.

After freshman Sara D'Appolonia and sophomore Cory Langenbach sparked a 14-2 run to open the contest, the Clippers went cold and behind their zone defense and the play of freshman Taylor Rinaldi, the Falcons crept back within eight, 18-10, at halftime...
