Baseball Success the 'Bangor Way'

Posted: April 27th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The 2015 edition of the Bangor High School baseball team began their quest in earnest this week to win a second consecutive state championship. The Rams appear to have picked up where they left off a season ago when they shutout Windham in the state title game. Armed with strong starting pitching, Bangor shutout Hampden 1-0 on Wednesday before getting their bats going in their 14-3 triumph over Brewer on Friday. The Rams allowed only one earned run in that contest.

 

Success and baseball in Bangor are synonymous. Since 1969, the Rams have captured ten state championships while amassing eighteen Eastern Maine crowns. Bangor’s worst record in the past forty-five years is 9-7.

MPA faces historic vote on adding division in basketball

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: April 26th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Gary Stevens, the Thornton Academy athletic director, says the vote Thursday on a proposal to expand Maine high school basketball to five classes will be “groundbreaking.”

 

“In my opinion, it’s the most important vote we’ve ever had,” he said.

 

Several issues will be on the agenda at the Maine Principals’ Association Spring Conference at the Samoset Resort in Rockport – but the general membership’s vote on the basketball proposal is the most anticipated. Last winter, 138 high schools fielded varsity basketball teams.

 

“It’s a historic day in that so many major issues are coming to a head at one time,” Stevens said. “Each school has one vote (to be made by principals or their designees). We’ll make a decision as a state with the best interests of the students in mind.”
