The Hot Corner: Saints ... Devils ... playoffs ... as it should be

Sport: Hockey (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: March 4th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

by KALLE OAKES..LEWISTON — Whaddya say, St. Dom’s and Lewiston hockey loyalists? Same time, same place, next year? Few administrative decisions in high school athletics elicit more hand-wringing, objection and outright bellyaching than Maine Principals’ Association class structure and assignment of schools. Even Tuesday, as hockey’s Class A final four prepared to lace it up at Androscoggin Bank Colisee, coaches and overseers elsewhere in the state were putting pen to paper or bloviating on behalf of other sports’ future playoffs. Do basketball and football, for example, require four classification levels, or five? And where is the East-West line of demarcation drawn? Or should we call it North-South? We see the politicking as it pertains to the puck, too. Hockey’s prevailing system has its detractors. Three classes would be fairer than two, some say. Others suggest a matrix that assigns teams according to recent success and long-term tradition rather than raw enrollment numbers...

Cody Martin, one of the top seniors in Class A, is among eight finalists..FAIRFIELD — Cody Martin has been the football team’s starting quarterback and ace of the baseball team’s pitching staff in his career at Lawrence High School, but where the senior feels most at home is on the ice. “Hockey is my passion,” Martin said. “…I just get that feeling when I step out on the ice that it’s where I belong.” On Tuesday the first line center for the Lawrence/Skowhegan co-op boys hockey team (11-7-1) had his hard work recognized when he was named a semifinalist for the Travis Roy Award. Martin finished the season with 35 goals, 26 assists and a face-off winning percentage just under 90 percent in helping lead the Bandits to the No. 4 seed in Eastern A, where they lost to No. 5 Edward Little in the quarterfinals...

Coach Gary Fifield calls final time out after superb USM career

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: March 4th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Fifield, 62, is retiring after a 27-year stint as one of the nation's most successful NCAA Division III women's basketball coaches..GORHAM — Gary Fifield kept his composure for the most part, at least until things got personal. As he thanked just about everyone at the University of Southern Maine athletic department for their support of his women’s basketball program, Fifield brought up his family: his wife of 34 years, Mary, and his 32-year-old son, Ashley. Then he choked up. “They’ve been very supportive and understanding and really made a lot of sacrifices so I could pursue a career in coaching,” Fifield said, fighting back tears. “You really miss a lot of family time when you’re a coach.” He’ll soon be making up for lost time. Fifield, 62, announced his retirement Tuesday after a 27-year stint as one of the nation’s most successful NCAA Division III women’s basketball coaches...

Maine football panel proposes classification changes for 2015 season

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: March 4th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

AUGUSTA, Maine — Amid conversation about tiered scheduling and even a five-class proposal for its sport, the football committee of the Maine Principals’ Association approved modest changes to its recommended plan for the next two-year reclassification cycle on Tuesday. One change was to adjust the minimum number of students for a Class A football-playing school from 840 to 845, which likely would result in Class A having two seven-school divisions next season. Other proposed changes would shift Oceanside of Rockland-Thomaston from Western C to Eastern C and Camden Hills from Western D to Eastern D. That would leave the state’s 77 varsity football-playing schools divided in the following manner: Eastern A and Western A (seven schools each), Eastern B (10), Western B (12), Eastern and Western C (10 schools each), Eastern D (12) and Western D (9)...
