Parady, Cimbollek, Spurling among 19 new Maine Basketball Hall of Famers

... Cook, 55, is among 19 former coaches and players who will be part of the fourth induction class of the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame.

The Class of 2017 will be inducted Sunday, Aug. 20, at the Cross Insurance Center. A news conference announcing the honorees was held Wednesday morning at the center.

“This is more of an eclectic group than we’ve had in the past,” said Tony Hamlin, chair of the Hall of Fame’s selection committee. “We’re kind of blending toward getting into the modern era, which is after 1980.”

Joining Cook in the Hall of Fame Class of 2017 are Terry Carr, who helped Stearns High School of Millinocket to the 1963 New England championship before going on to play at UMaine; Bob Cimbollek, who established 11 records while playing at Husson College before embarking on a long career in both officiating and coaching, the latter effort producing five state championships and six Eastern Maine crowns; and Diane Nagle, who helped Houlton High School win four consecutive Eastern Maine championships as well as back-to-back state titles in 1985 and 1986 before going on to UMaine.

The following people are being inducted in the Legends category:

Dwight Carver was an All-State player in 1972 and 1973 at Class D Jonesport-Beals, which won five straight Class D boys’ titles from 1970 to 1974. Carver set a tourney record in 1970, making 17 free throws in a game. His daughters — Sandi, Kristi and Tricia — also starred for the Royals.

Gary Hawkins coached junior high basketball at St. Mary’s/St. Michael School in Augusta for 43 years. Many all-state players played for “Hawk.” He was a sports reporter for the Kennebec Journal for more than three decades.

Chick Marchetti of Bath is a basketball enthusiast and has officiated in Southern Maine for more than 40 years. He was a standout player for Morse High School in the 1950s and has devoted his life to help improve the game of basketball.

Bob Woodbury is known in the Waterville area as “Ringmaster Bob,” as he was the voice of basketball in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Woodbury’s voice was welcomed into the homes of Central Maine families who couldn’t make it to away games. He also hosted a radio show and wrote guest columns for the Morning Sentinel.

Teams being inducted are:

1979 South Portland boys: The South Portland boys’ team in 1979 ran roughshod over opponents en route to a 22-0 record and a Class A state championship. Brett Brown, Ken Lynch, Paul Gorham, Paul Burnell, Chris Bolduc and Paul McFarland paced the Red Riots. Area coaches agreed that South Portland’s second five also could beat most Class A teams. This immortal team topped Presque Isle 102-58 to win the state crown. The 44-point margin of victory is still a Maine schoolboy record.

1980 Westbrook girls: The Westbrook High School girls’ team won four-straight Class A state titles from 1978 to 1981, and it would be appropriate to recognize any of those squads. The committee chose the 1980 group, which was led by All-State first team players Lisa Blais and Gail Jackson. The Blue Blazes cruised through the season and earned the Gold Ball with an 88-66 victory over Old Town High School.
