Forecaster: Yarmouth Clippers Boys' Winter Athlete of the Year

ALEK MEDENICA, Senior-Basketball

Medenica was a unique force for the Clippers, a dynamic scorer and leader who played well beyond his years.

Medenica took an unconventional road to Maine basketball stardom. For starters, he was born in Serbia, but spent ample time in the Pine Tree state growing up.

“My parents were both captains at the University of Maine-Machias,” Medenica said. “My Dad then played pro ball in Serbia.”

Forecaster: North Yarmouth Academy Panthers Boys' Winter Athlete of the Year

JAKE MALCOM, Senior—Basketball

Malcom enjoyed a terrific senior season and his flair for the dramatic helped the Panthers make their deepest playoff run in over a decade.

Malcom, who lives in Boothbay, started playing basketball at a young age. He came to NYA in the sixth grade and was a swing player as a freshman, then joined the varsity team full-time as a sophomore. Malcom’s size (6 foot-5) and ability to score inside and out gave him an opportunity to shine and he did so, making the WMC second-team as a junior after finishing 11th in the conference in scoring (13.8 points per game) and sixth in rebounds (8.7).

Forecaster: Greely Rangers Boys' Winter Athlete of the Year

MATT MCDEVITT, Senior—Basketball

McDevitt played an integral role in leading Greely to a coveted Gold Ball and as a result, he took home just about every postseason award imaginable.

McDevitt grew up with a basketball in his hands, as his father, Mike, is the longtime women’s coach at St. Joseph’s College and his older brother, Michael, starred at Greely before going on to play at Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire.

“Basketball has always been my top sport,” said Matt McDevitt. “Being in a basketball family got me started. I always liked the Saturday morning clinics with (former Greely coach Ken Marks) and the older players too.”
