Falmouth applying to SMAA; Yachtsmen would be Class A in all sports, lose traditional rivalries

Falmouth High School athletic director James Coffey announced Friday that the school is in the process of applying to join the Southwestern Maine Activities Association.

Falmouth, a longtime Western Maine Conference power, has been in athletic purgatory the past four seasons, playing its traditional Class B and C foes in the regular season, then moving up to Class A with no familiarity with its opponents come playoff time.

“I think it’s the best thing for the program,” said Coffey. “We’re going to be in Class A when the new alignment comes out.”

Falmouth will make a proposal to the SMAA Feb. 2 and will likely be joined by another current WMC school.


That's from Hoffer's article. Dollars to doughnuts the other school is Kennebunk.

Kennebunk, Falmouth high schools hope to move up to SMAA
The two Western Maine Conference schools apply to join larger schools in the Southwestern Maine Activities Association.

.... Indeed, over the past decade, only three SMAA schools have seen a rise in enrollment. Thornton Academy, a public-private institution that provides housing for tuition-paying boarding students who come from as far away as Asia, is up 16.2 percent from 2006. In Maine, only Lewiston High reported more than Thornton’s 1,412 students (as of last spring), and then only by 16 students.

The other two SMAA schools on the upswing are Scarborough (2.8 percent growth to 1,021, but down slightly in each of the previous three biennial reports) and Windham (up 6.8 percent to 1,004 but also down from 2014 and 2012 figures).

“I think the majority of the state is getting smaller, and we’re not,” said Falmouth’s Coffey. “We’re at 706 kids right now and we’re going to be right about 700 or above for the next several years. We have all the enrollment projections.”

Falmouth approved for SMAA entry

FALMOUTH—When Dave Halligan started coaching boys’ basketball and boys’ soccer at his alma mater 30 years ago, Falmouth High School was the smallest public school in Class C.

Starting next school year, Halligan and the Yachtsmen will be competing in the Southwestern Maine Activities Association, home to the biggest schools in the state.

Thursday, Falmouth, along with Kennebunk, had its application for entry into the SMAA approved and beginning in September, the Yachtsmen will do battle with the likes of Cheverus, Deering, Portland, South Portland and Thornton Academy in almost every sport.
