Family provides $8.3 million naming gift for Colby basketball arena

... “My generation of athletes walked into that athletic complex and we’d never seen anything like it,” said Jim Crook, who played several successful seasons for legendary coaches Dick Whitmore and John “Swisher” Mitchell. “I learned more from losing as a result of knowing what it’s like to win,” he said, “and I want Colby’s current and future students to have a competitive experience like the one Lexi and I enjoyed.”

When Whitmore announced his retirement, Crook and other basketball alumni — Chris Vickers ’87, P’21, Matt Hancock ’90, P’19, and Chad Higgins ’97 — created a legacy fund named for Whitmore and supported by basketball alumni and others. This spring Crook spearheaded an effort to raise funds from fellow alumni to endow the assistant basketball coach position in the name of Mitchell.

Construction of three new fields for competition and practice are underway and site preparation will begin soon on the complex, which will be located on Campus Drive west of the existing athletic facility. The new complex will also welcome many teams and groups from the Waterville community and across Maine. ... all-arena/

Husson men's hoops adds GSA's Jarrod Chase

BANGOR - Husson men's basketball has enjoyed a wealth of success in recent years, and has done so largely by recruiting players with an impressive high school pedigree. That trend continued with the latest addition.

The Eagles announced that George Stevens guard Jarrod Chase has committed to join the program this coming season.

Chase is coming off a big winter in which the GSA Eagles won their second-straight Class C state championship, clinched by Chase's game-winning three in the final seconds against Winthrop. He proved to be a well-rounded part of that squad that won 43 of 44 games in his final two seasons, averaging nearly 15 points, eight rebounds, six assists, and more than four steals pergame as a senior. ... rrod-chase

Way to go Fred !! Proud of your efforts

Innovate for Maine Spotlight: Fred Knight and His Internship

...For Fred Knight, that meant working for the Cooperative Center for Aquaculture Research at the University of Maine: immediately contributing to engineering system projects and leveraging his undergraduate education in the workplace. By the end of the summer, Fred had accumulated an entire binder of the work he had completed and the projects he had been a part of, an item that helped him make memorable impressions in two different job interviews that fall.

“Right in the binder was an overview of the systems I had designed, along with comments, calculations and a bunch of pictures,” Fred said. “It gave me something to talk about for 15 to 20 minutes in each interview.”

And in the end, the employers were impressed, Fred said. He ended up receiving two job offers from two interviews, and will be working for General Dynamics Systems in Massachusetts as a systems and a rotation engineer after graduation in May. More specifically, he’ll be participating in their engineering leadership program, which will have him train to be a manager in their business. In this program, Fred will have opportunities to work full-time, internal leadership training, and also earn an engineering graduate degree. ... nternship/
