College: York football star will tackle rugby in the fall at Maine-Farmington

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: July 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Randy Small has coached hundreds of kids in his 19 years at the helm of the York High School football program.

 

Some kids he remembers more than others, while there are some that, when he hears their name, a wide smile goes across this face.

 

Jack Neary is one of those former players — a player who still, even though he graduated earlier this month, is a role model for the younger players in the York football system.

Post 188 bats go suddenly silent

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: July 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — In June, the shift from spring to summer can be subtle, not defined by a day on the calendar as much as a state of mind.

 

For the Eliot Post 188 baseball team, that line of demarcation has been a little more stark. A team that hit all spring is not hitting now.

 

Made up of many of the players who led Marshwood High School to title contention in Western Maine Class A, Post 188 was held to just four hits Tuesday in a 5-2 loss to Saco-Biddeford Savings on the final day of the month.

Posted: July 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

MILLINOCKET, Maine — Stearns High School is scrambling to line up a new head football coach for the second straight summer.

 

John Jamo, the program’s longtime assistant coach who ascended to the Minutemen’s head position last summer, tendered his resignation June 1 citing personal reasons.

 

Jamo had replaced Chris Preble, whose 13-year tenure as head coach ended last Aug. 12 when he was named assistant principal and health teacher at Winslow Junior High School.

Posted: July 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Watching good pitchers compete on other teams in an Amateur Softball Association tourney a few summers ago in Maryland served as a motivating factor for Bangor High School softball player Emily Reilly.

 

“It made me want to work harder as a pitcher. I saw how hard they threw and how much spin they put on the ball and I wanted to be like that.

LEGION NOTEBOOK: Zone 2 team Andy Valley forfeits rest of season

Posted: June 30th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

GARDINER — Franklin County of Farmington and Gardiner squared off at Gardiner Area High School on Monday night in a reunion of old Zone 2 teams.

 

Each team went into the game having won two of its first three games, but Franklin County already had an extra win in hand before the first pitch was even thrown. That’s because a team in the new Zone 2 has already called it a season due to lack of players.

Ten Tips to Survive a Track Meet

Sport: Track And Field  Message Board

Posted: June 30th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

School is finally out. Summer has officially flowered. And for hundreds of area youth track season has begun. What this means to parents are long hours in the hot sun (or freezing rain) in order to watch a few minutes of their child’s event. Listed below are a few tips on how to survive and even flourish during these hours.

 

1. Prepare for a long stay. Track meets can last up to five or six hours so pack a cooler full of cold packs, water and healthy snacks like fruits, nuts and even cheese puffs. Concessions are generally available but do you really want your kid running a 1600 after wolfing down two slices of questionable cheese pizza or clean up the aftermath? Also, pack a bag with books, toy cars, a soccer ball, whatever will help keep your participant entertained between events…which can be a long time.

Ben True was already assured of a trip to the track and field world championships after his second-place finish Thursday in the 10,000 meters at the U.S. championships in Eugene, Oregon, but he’s made it clear all along his preferred race is the 5,000.

 

Now, after another runner-up finish Sunday in the 5,000, the North Yarmouth native may soon have to choose which event to run at the world championships later this summer in Beijing.

Maine Baseball Report: Mainers' rally falls short

Sport: Baseball

Posted: June 29th, 2015 by Matt Boutwell

Sanford, Maine – For the second consecutive game, the Sanford Mainers (6-8) offense stalled through the first half of the game before attempting another late inning rally. This time, the Moose fell to the Danbury Westerners (2-13) in a Northern-Southern Division crossover contest Wednesday night at Goodall Park.

 

The pesky Westerners, who pounded 17 hits, tacked on two key insurance runs in the top of the eighth with a two-run single from James Bunn (Virginia Commonwealth University) making it a 7-4 hill to climb for the Mainers with three outs to work with.
