Tourney memories: 2002 state title still amazes Jay team

... Even those who were on the court when Jay went from down one point and without the ball with 1.4 seconds left to state champions find the ending a little bit preposterous, 15 years later.

"I didn't even believe it when I was recalling it to my co-workers a few days ago," said Josh Armandi, a junior forward and the Tigers' leading scorer that night.

"It's just crazy," said Brian Fournier, Jay's senior point guard and the game's hero. "How it all went down is still just unbelievable."

An obscure rule, a technical foul and two clutch free throws by the steely-nerved Fournier capped off the Tigers' come-from-behind 48-47 win and cemented the 2002 Class C state championship in tournament lore.

Longtime educator, tournament director with ‘a heart of gold’ dies at 88

When Bill Fletcher was the assistant principal and athletic director at Brewer High School, one of his responsibilities was “Saturday school,” a session for students who had misbehaved.

Former Brewer High principal Jerry Goss remembered there were two boys who lived on Route 9, quite far from the high school. They told Fletcher they really wanted to go fishing and asked if they could avoid Saturday school.

“He told them he would cancel their Saturday school as long as there were two trout sitting on his desk on Monday morning,” Goss said. “When he got to his desk on Monday, there were four trout on it.”

That epitomized Fletcher, a longtime teacher, coach, athletic administrator and the site director of the Maine Principals’ Association Eastern Maine basketball tournaments at the Bangor Auditorium for 26 years.

The Milo native died Saturday at the age of 88.

“They don’t come any better than Bill Fletcher,” Goss said. “He was as solid as a rock. He worked hard, and he had a heart of gold.”
