Bessey Motors' Chickering making most of final American Legion season

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: July 7th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Riley Chickering loves his baseball, and his Besseys.

 

For the past five summers, Chickering has reunited with his fellow Oxford Hills teammates as a member of the Bessey Motors American Legion baseball team, a consistent title contender.

 

Playing under the Bessey name is becoming somewhat of a trend for Chickering since he started playing college baseball at the University of Maine at Farmington this past spring under coach Chris Bessey. Whether playing for Bessey Motors or for Bessey's Beavers, Chickering has all the intangibles for being a great baseball player.

2015 Kennebec Journal Boys Tennis Player of the Year: Kasey Smith, Monmouth

Sport: Tennis  Message Board

Posted: July 7th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Whenever he needed inspiration for his marathon first round state singles tennis match with Mike Dunning of John Bapst, Monmouth Academy’s Kasey Smith only needed to look at the next court over at Colby College’s Alfond-Wales Tennis Courts and remember not being able to pull out a very similar match with Waterville’s Zach Disch between those lines one year earlier.

 

“We were basically twins on the court,” Smith said of the Disch match. “We both played very emotional tennis. We probably offended those playing next to us, we were so loud.”

Morning Sentinel Boys Tennis Player of the Year: Sullivan Abbott

Sport: Tennis  Message Board

Posted: July 7th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

This past tennis season, Mt. Blue High School senior Sullivan Abbott was a more patient, calm player. That’s not to say when he wanted to or had to let it rip, Abbott couldn’t bring it.

 

“He has power. Sully has a huge serve,” Zac Conlogue, Mt. Blue boys tennis coach, said. “When he’s on, his approach shots are unhittable.”

Topsham golfer, 13, is youngest in Maine Amateur field

Sport: Golf  Message Board

Posted: July 7th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BRUNSWICK — Wearing his Jordan Spieth golf cap, Caleb Manuel practiced his putting and chipping last week at the Brunswick Golf Club.

 

It’s hard to say just how much practice the 13-year-old was able to get in. One by one, several of the club’s many senior members came up to offer him congratulations, a pattern that kept up for several minutes. But Manuel wasn’t bothered a bit. He smiled, shook hands and repeated “thank you” more times than he likely got to hit putts or chips.

Sport: Lacrosse (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: July 7th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The 2015 lacrosse season featured excellence from local players, so it came as no surprise to learn that this year's All-American teams featured several familiar names.

 

This spring, one local girl and seven boys were honored.

 

Standouts
U.S. Lacrosse describes All-Americans as "Players who exhibit superior skills and techniques and possess exceptional game sense and knowledge. They are among the best players in the United States while also embodying excellent sportsmanship."

 

Once again, Forecaster Country boasted no shortage of that kind of player this spring.

The boys' All-American team included Brunswick's Cam Glover, Cape Elizabeth's Griffin Thoreck, Cheverus' Thomas Lawson, Falmouth's Bryce Kuhn, South Portland's Jack Fiorini and T-Moe Hellier and Yarmouth's Joe Oliva.

 

Gardiner senior middie Josh Caldwell and Gardiner senior defenseman Jake Truman were also selected.

2015 Kennebec Journal Girls Tennis Player of the Year: CLio Barr, Hall-Dale

Sport: Tennis  Message Board

Posted: July 6th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

When asked to describe what type of tennis player Clio Barr is, one word quickly came to mind for Hall-Dale coach Guy Cousins.

 

“Relentless.”

 

Barr went 12-2 this season for the Bulldogs in helping the team capture the Mountain Valley Conference championship. Her only losses came against St. Dominic Academy’s Bethany Hammond, the runner-up at this year’s state tournament, and North Yarmouth Academy’s Lena Rich, who defeated Barr in the Round of 32.

Posted: July 6th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

It may had been some time since Vasilisa Mitskevich played competetive tennis, but that did not stop the 17-year-old from throroughly enjoying it this spring.

 

“I’m really glad that I got the opportunity to play tennis here and it was really amazing,” Mitskevich said. “I enjoyed every minute of playing tennis for Skowhegan.”

 

As it would turn out, it did not take her long to shake the rust off either.

Posted: July 6th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The 96th Maine Amateur will play out Tuesday through Thursday on an Oakland golf course that doesn’t offer a lot of frills or incentives for golfers to get into a driving contest.

 

“It’s just a good, old-fashioned golf course,” Waterville Country Club pro Don Roberts said. “Everything’s right in front of you. You just have to make sure you’re below the hole a lot because the greens are sloped back-to-front.

Posted: July 5th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Maine State Golf Association officials patted Andrew Slattery on the back and put a crystal vase in his hand. Television cameras and notebook-wielding reporters captured his every word.

 

The scene at the Woodlands club in Falmouth one year ago had all the proper earmarks. Slattery, relative newcomer to the game from West Minot, was a Maine Amateur champion, suddenly a household name in amateur golf at the state level.

Sport: Track And Field  Message Board

Posted: July 5th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Every state has a particular sport for which it's known when it comes to producing talented athletes.

 

For states like Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and New York, that sport is basketball. Kids grow up on skates in Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota. Football is king in Texas (and in most southern states).

 

With respect to the smattering of athletes who move on in the traditional sports of basketball, baseball and hockey, track and field continues to be the strongest source of overall success for teenage athletes in Maine.
