Katahdin baseball eyes longer playoff run

... “We are excited about the upcoming season,” coach Thoreson said. “We return six of our nine everyday starters from last year as well as 88 of 98 innings pitched last year. Our main goal in this program is to challenge each other every day to become better men and to prepare our young men for the world once the last pitch is thrown.”

Last year, the Cougars finished 10-4 in the regular season, which earned Katahdin the No. 3 seed in Class D North and a first-round bye. But the Cougars fell to No. 6 Shead, 9-7, in the quarterfinals.

“We suffered a heartbreaking loss at home in the quarterfinals last year and our young men are using that loss as fuel to work this preseason,” the coach said.

Coach likes makeup of Washburn baseball team

... “I think that this team collectively is one of the most upbeat teams I’ve been able to coach,” he said. “Their positive attitude has definitely carried over from last year.”

Many starting jobs are still available, but junior Braedon Campbell is one of the top offensive players from 2017 and Goodwin has high hopes that he will repeat his success at the plate. The squad’s lone sophomore, Colby Hewitt, is a top pitching prospect and Carvor Pendexter, a junior, could have a breakout season with the bat.

Konner Jordan is the team’s only senior. Other junior players are Jaedon Alvira, Steven Nader, Patrick Saucier and Noah White. Seven freshmen are on the roster: Chase Bates, Aiden Churchill, Gavin Dunagan, Julian Echieverria, Russell Farley, Joshua Jackson and Shayne Scott.

“I think a lot of my players have their own specialty that we will need to try to harness to be successful this year,” Goodwin said.

Hodgdon baseball is short on numbers, not talent

... “Basically, for me, numbers are down due to Greater Houlton Christian Academy having a team, and a large number of players graduating from last year’s team,” he said.

Last season, Hodgdon finished 11-4 in Class D North, which earned the Hawks the No. 5 seed in the region. Hodgdon blasted past No. 12 East Grand, 17-7 in a preliminary playoff and bested No. 13 Schenck, 8-4 in the quarterfinals before falling to top-ranked Fort Fairfield 5-0 in the semifinals.

Many key members of that squad are gone, due to graduation, including Ben Tuttle, Jordyn Merritt and Dillan Buzzell.

Fort Fairfield Tigers should be near the top in Class D North

...ohn Ala begins his 15th season as the head coach. The squad went 16-1 last season, with the lone loss coming to Bangor Christian in the title game. Shortstop Ryan Player, first baseman/pitcher Jon Bernard, and pitcher Carter Bruce all graduated and are the biggest personnel losses.

Ala will rely on his six senior returnees and a couple other underclassmen to lead the way.

For seniors, Jared Harvey was a pitching ace in 2017 and is back in that role this spring. Isaac Cyr and Malcolm Langner are strong outfielders who hit near the top of the lineup, while Dylan Jandreau and Liam McNamee will start in the infield. Chris Gill is one of the team’s candidates for starting catcher.

Junior Dawson Watson and sophomore Colby Langner played significant roles last season and look to expand on their efforts. Watson catches and Langner should see action on the mound.
