Team of the Year: Vinalhaven

Team of the Year: Girls’ basketball team, Vinalhaven
The Vikings overcome a tough travel schedule to win a state title.

... And talented. Led by captain and point guard Paige Dennison, Vinalhaven rolled past Highview Christian Academy, Temple Academy and then Forest Hills in the playoffs. When the time came to tackle Shead, Nelson knew her team wouldn’t be stopped short.

“We just opened it up, we were ready to go,” she said. “They were not to be denied, and they played wicked good defense that day.”

Tall tasks and challenges are nothing new at Vinalhaven, where just getting to the game is an ordeal. Long rides on sea and land are only part of the hassle; there are also ferry delays and cancellations, which can threaten an entire weekend. ... challenge/
