Forecaster: Southern edition Boys’ Coach of the Year

JIM RAY-Cape Elizabeth basketball

Ray has coached the Capers for 23 seasons and it’s likely that the one just concluded was his most challenging, but despite not having a place to practice and despite being without the services of his best player for half the year, he again got the most out of his charges and guided Cape Elizabeth deep into the tournament.

On the brink of the season, the Capers’ gym was flooded and the team had to train at odd hours and varying locations. Shortly after beating Falmouth with a dramatic buzzer-beater, junior Finn Bowe suffered a leg injury and was sidelined for the rest of the regular season. Regardless, Ray guided Cape Elizabeth to its fifth straight winning record and the Capers earned the No. 3 seed in Class A South. They got Bowe back for the tournament and he hit a free throw after time expired in overtime to beat Brunswick in the quarterfinals for the most dramatic win of the season. Cape Elizabeth then lost to Falmouth for the second year in a row in the semifinals, but all things

Forecaster: Northern edition Boys’ Coach of the Year

TRAVIS SEAVER—Greely basketball

Seaver was the link between Greely’s glorious past and the title hopes of the present and he was able to turn the Rangers into an unbeatable champions this winter.

Greely had long been the bridesmaid, advancing deep into the playoffs before suffering disappointing losses, and with a senior core, this winter was now or never for the Rangers. Behind the excellence of Mister Maine Basketball Matt McDevitt and stars Jordan Bagshaw, Shane DeWolfe and Ryan Twitchell, Greely passed every test, including overtime scares against rivals Falmouth and Yarmouth, to go 18-0 in the regular season. The Rangers then dominated Kennebunk in the Class A South quarterfinals, held off York’s upset bid in the semifinals and dethroned Falmouth in the regional final before cruising past Messalonskee in the state game to bring home the program’s first Gold Ball in 19 seasons.
