Southern Aroostook boys use second-half surge to defeat Central Aroostook

... Southern Aroostook senior Nolan Altvater poured in 19 points and had numerous blocks as he dominated from the low post. Senior Jackson Mathers added 15 points and senior Tyler Batchelder added eight.

For Central Aroostook, sophomore Ben Thomas netted 11 points, and freshman Brayden Bradbury added seven.

“There is nothing more important and nothing more on our mind than the dream of winning that gold ball,” Altvater said. “It’s been our goal pretty much since last season ended.”

Southern Aroostook star rebounds from battle with Crohn’s disease

... “I didn’t know what was going on,” he said. “I lost 10 pounds in about a month and a half and I was so sick for about a week that I couldn’t get off the couch.”

And as the debilitating stomach ache returned so did another symptom, considerable pain in his joints.

“They say it feels like arthritis if your Crohn’s is bad, and I definitely had that,” he said. “At one point my knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrists were all bad. That week on the couch, I could barely pick up my phone it hurt so bad.

“It got so bad that I knew I had to do something because I couldn’t go to college like this. Two weeks later I was diagnosed with Crohn’s.

Machias boys beat Southern Aroostook for first ‘D’ title since 1995

BANGOR, Maine — A simple late-night drive last summer gave Machias boys basketball coach Jim Getchell an indication of how dedicated his Bulldogs were in preparation for what they hoped would be a special season.

“I went by Machias High School last summer one night at 1:30 in the morning and they’re all down there playing basketball,” Getchell said.

Summer commitment turned into February fulfillment on Saturday, as the Bulldogs stymied a high-powered Southern Aroostook club, holding the Warriors to nine second-half points in claiming their first regional title in more than two decades with a 43-31 Class D North championship win at the Cross Insurance Center.

Correctional facility has a basketball team of smiles
Even after losing a title game, 'the best Bears team' from South Portland's A.R. Gould School realize how far they have come.

... While A.R. Gould isn’t your typical high school, the Bears don’t lack support. Spectators cheering them on included their families, teachers and guards, as well as fellow and former inmates.

“It means a lot to me,” Collins said. “I realized we had a lot of talent and could make it a long way. I pushed everybody as hard as I could.”

“Guys like Tyrese need basketball,” Sturgis said. “He needs a positive incentive to work during the offseason. He’s been great all year long. It’s important for everybody to have a change of pace and have something like that. If you don’t have that, all you have is negatives to reinforce behaviors.”

On the topic of A.R Gould School-Once again I want to thank my GREAT coaching staff for making this basketball season one of the most incredible seasons ever! Making it to the Regional Championship game is no easy feat for any team but to take a group of kids who have never played together before AND have never played on a team or at most have not played since grade school AND are youth at risk who are dealing with so much more with their life circumstances and make it to the Regional Championship? THAT is unprecedented and could not happen without the guidance from great coaches. I absolutely know that our kids were blessed to have the most talented, fun, knowledgeable, and caring coaches out there. For many of these kids, this IS the highlight of their life. One in which they will never forget! The coaching we all did off the court that taught more life lessons and showed them that we cared about them and their future was the work not many saw but the value was huge. They won’t forget these moments either. You as coaches have given these kids confidence they never had, lessons in humility, accountability, a sense of belonging in a community, the skills to overcome adversity, connection with 3 terrific male role models, and for the first time in their lives feeling success and being proud of themselves. Through this program, you have given these players all the tools to make it successfully in this world and THAT is amazing and admirable! THAT is all I hoped for! THANK YOU!

I would like to thank all the people who came out to support the BEARS basketball team throughout the season. Whether you know it or not, your presence is very meaningful to me, the coaches and most importantly to the players. You showed them that they were a part of a community, gave them a sense of pride and made them want to work harder and show you they are capable of great things. I was in awe to see the amount of people at our tournament games cheering on our team. THANK YOU ALL!
