SJ: B South Baseball Preview: Phoenix look to challenge Falcons in return to MVC

...No one at Spruce Mountain is happier the school is back in the Mountain Valley Conference than baseball coach Brian Dube.

Dube, long-time coach at Livermore Falls before the school merged with Jay over seven years ago, helped lead the movement to get the Phoenix back in the MVC after four years in the KVAC. He thinks his team will benefit from not having to make trips to places such as Belfast and Newport anymore.

“We put on over 800 miles in eight away games,” he said. “We’re leaving at 1 p.m. and getting home after 9 and we’re driving past these schools that we’ve always played. I’m excited to be back in the league and seeing those coaches again.”

SJ: A North Baseball Preview: Emerging Vikings hope to end Bangor's run

...Bangor stalled the Vikings’ growth spurt by beating them in the regional semifinal before going on to win its fourth consecutive state title. With 11 key contributors back in 2018, Oxford Hills is hoping to take the next step, or two.

“We are still fairly young with only four seniors,” Vikings coach Shane Slicer said, “but the youngsters gained valuable experience last spring and summer, winning the Zone 2 (American Legion) regular season and tournament championships.”

Slicer expects his team to stay hungry and focused for a deeper high school run. The pitching staff is talented and deep, led by junior Colton Carson, who last year verbally committed to play at the University of Maine. Troy Johnson and Janek Luksza are tough alternatives for opponents that miss Carson’s turn.

SJ MVC baseball preview: Greyhounds have work to do for redemption

Graduating four starters added to the challenge. Coach Randy Ridley has seniors Nick Austin, Sean Scott and Cole Bolduc and returning junior starters Noah Austin and Lucas Francis to lean on.

“Our returning players will have to step up into leadership roles this year and guide the more inexperienced players through the battles with this year’s MVC teams,” Ridley said.

Most coaches in the MVC tapped Hall-Dale as the favorite but expect the Greyhounds to make another bid with Francis, both Austins and Scott anchoring the pitching staff.

Old Town hopes to continue "Titletown" tradition

OLD TOWN, MAINE (WABI) - After earning three state championships between the Old Town baseball and softball teams the last two years, they self-proclaimed themselves “Titletown.” The Coyotes have added to the trophy case already this year as spring sports are getting underway...

Ashland looks for bounce-back baseball season

...“I think we are going to have a good year,” Beaulier said. “Not making it last year did put a bad taste in our mouths and we are going to use this as motivation to propel us into having a great season.

Ashland recorded a 6-8 record in 2017 and lost two standout players off that team in Kyle Beaulieu, who caught and pitched, and Lucas Craig, who played shortstop and pitched.

While there are still some starting positions up for grabs, the Hornets probable lineup to begin the season includes senior Steven Bellanceau at first base, sophomore Graham Berry at second, junior Jesse Wortman at shortstop and senior Baily Clark at third. Senior Alex Kaiser is the No. 1 pitcher and will most likely start in center field when not on the mound. Sophomore Drew Doughty plays left field.

Central Aroostook Panthers have personnel to make lengthy playoff run

... Mitch Ross is the Panthers’ new coach, taking over for Butch Richardson, and he has the team working diligently either in the gymnasium or in the school parking lot as it tries to stay patient waiting for the field to clear of snow.

“Practices are going well and the guys have a great attitude,” Ross said. He noted that batting cage work, fielding ground balls and pitching are the things being accomplished inside, while catching fly balls and playing long toss are being done outdoors.

“We are concentrating on making sure we have the basics down, like throwing mechanics and proper fielding mechanics,” he said.

PI baseball team bolstered by pitching depth

...The coaching duo of Derrick Kinney and Curt Paterson hopes the Wildcats can build on their strong finish last season, which included a prelim victory over Gardiner and a close loss to Hermon in the quarterfinals. The team went 10-8 overall.

Presque Isle must replace its starting first baseman and top hitter, Nick Bartlett, who graduated along with starting outfielders Jake Kinney and Brad Kinney and reserves Grant Bridges and Brad McMann.

The coaches are still tinkering with the starting lineup, but seniors R.J. Gross (.360 batting average, six doubles, 11 runs scored and nine RBI in 2017) and Adam Paterson (.255, eight runs); juniors Jonah Hudson (.370, 10 stolen bases and 12 runs), Torey Levesque (.302 and six steals) and Dakota Morrow (.176 and three RBI); and sophomore Connor DeMerchant (.391 and seven runs) are veterans who all will play key roles.

Caribou looks to rebound from 2-14 season

...Like all the other Aroostook County teams, the Vikings have been confined to a gymnasium since practices began in mid-March. Hunter said they have made the most of their time indoors.

“The workouts have been going really well,” Hunter said. “We have been concentrating on a return to fundamentals, with lots of instruction and getting our pitchers regular work and we are getting as much hitting as we can get in the batting cage.”

Caribou finally was able to get outdoors Saturday with an exhibition doubleheader against Oceanside in Rockland and it gave Hunter a chance to evaluate individuals in game situations.

“We have 18 players, so I’m trying to take a look at everyone in order to come up with our best starting lineup,” Hunter said.
