Forecaster: Portland edition Girls’ Coach of the Year

Girls’ team
BILLY GOODMAN, Maine Girls’ Academy basketball

Goodman entered the season with a team almost completely devoid of varsity experience and while the Lions took some lumps, he managed to lead them deep into the playoffs again.

Goodman, who is also the longtime golf coach at Deering, won 100 games and three Class A state titles in his first five seasons at McAuley, but everything was different this year. For starters, the school changed its name and due to injuries, graduation and other departures, the Lions were as raw as any team in the state’s biggest conference. MGA struggled early, then rode a stellar defense to a turnaround which was capped by a stunning come-from-behind victory over rival Deering. Several young players came of age as the season progressed and the Lions earned the No. 4 seed for the Class AA South playoffs. MGA then downed Sanford in the quarterfinals to get to the semifinals for the eighth straight year before losing to eventual repeat state champion Gorham. ... he-year-6/
