Orono native named Washington Academy boys basketball coach

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: June 23rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

EAST MACHIAS, Maine — The first full day of summer provided no respite for Barry Terrill.

 

First he organized 10 Washington Academy football players for their trip to the LTC football camp at Orono High School on Monday evening.

 

Then there was the local youth basketball program to administer, followed by an open gym workout for the high school basketball team.

 

But for Terrill, named the Raiders’ boys varsity basketball coach last week — to go with his continuing tenure as WA’s head football coach — it’s a labor of love.

Sport: Lacrosse (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: June 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

PORTLAND, Maine — Asked about this year’s senior class, a tight-knit group that helped turn the Marshwood High School girls lacrosse program into a statewide power, coach Bernie Marvin referred back to the 2012 regional semifinals.

 

Marshwood was the No. 3 seed in Western Maine Class A that year. It traveled to second-seeded Massabesic, and when the dust settled on a 3-1 win, the scorebook showed something special for the future — freshmen accounting for all three goals.

American Legion Baseball: Changes abound as season gets under way

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: June 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

American Legion baseball in Maine has a bit of a different look to it this season, and with that new look comes an element of unpredictability and intrigue.

 

Gone is the five-zone format that's graced the American Legion landscape for the past six years, now condensed to four zones due to lower turnouts across the state.

 

Zone 2 received the biggest facelift, expanding from six teams to 12. Augusta, Franklin County and Gardiner remain in Zone 2 and are joined by Andy Valley, Bessey Motors, Bethel, Brunswick, Highland Green, Pastime, Rogers Post, Smith Tobey and Tri Town, all members of Zone 3 last year

Sport: Softball  Message Board

Posted: June 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

It is days like Saturday that give creedance to cliches about counting chickens and judging books.

 

Few outside of Oakland expected the Messalonskee High softball team to beat previously undefeated Scarborough for the Class A championship Saturday at Cony High School. The opposite was true for the team from Richmond, who carried a 51-game winning streak into its Class D championship game against Stearns at Richard W. Bailey Field in Standish.

Is Kate Hall the best high school athlete ever to emerge from Maine?

Sport: Track And Field  Message Board

Posted: June 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

CASCO — Victory in hand, Kate Hall didn’t need to take her final attempt in the long jump at the U.S. high school indoor track championships in March. After all, the 18-year-old already had established a meet record of 20 feet, 11.25 inches – a mark that ranks her 24th among American women this year.

 

But in classic Kate Hall style, she wasn’t done.

 

As Hall prepared to take off down the runway at the New York City Armory, the announcer directed the crowd to the long-jump pit. Some 3,500 track fans began to clap in unison as they were introduced to “Kate Hall of Casco, Maine.”

 

In that moment everything remarkable about what Hall has achieved was summed up by the man standing next to her dad, who asked: “Where is Casco, Maine?”

She responded with a jump that surprised even herself.

 

Hall, of Casco, broke a 39-year-old national high school record with a jump of 22 feet, 5 inches at the New Balance Nationals in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Yarmouth stuns Kennebunk in OT to repeat as Class B champs!

Sport: Lacrosse (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: June 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

PORTLAND—This one was the sweetest.

 

Yarmouth's girls' lacrosse team has long been an elite program and has collected plenty of hardware for the school's trophy case, but for most of the spring, it didn't appear that 2015 would be a championship season.

 

Until the Clippers saved their absolute best for last.

 

Saturday evening on the new turf at Fitzpatrick Stadium, Yarmouth was the underdog against Kennebunk in the Class B state final, but no one convinced the Clippers that they weren't supposed to win.

Posted: June 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

PORTLAND—Most teams refer to themselves as a family and hope to win a championship.

 

Then there's the Cape Elizabeth boys' lacrosse team, which does more than just talk about being a family, it's a literal family and once again is a team without peer.

 

Not only did the Capers feature the three Thoreck brothers (sons of athletic director Jeff Thoreck) for the second year in a row, but this spring, Cape Elizabeth's roster included freshman Finn Raymond, son of longtime coach Ben Raymond, and freshman Ben Carroll, the son of assistant coach Charlie Carroll.

STANDISH—Call them gritty, call them tough, call them determined or destined, but when the dust settled Saturday afternoon at Richard W. Bailey Field on the campus of St. Joseph's College, there was just one thing left to call the Yarmouth softball team.

 

Champions.

 

For the first time.

 

The Clippers culminated a program-altering, jawdropping, joy-inspiring run after surviving a team with plenty of big-game experience in a nervewracking contest that came down to the final pitch.

Bangor-Brewer EM Baseball Final: High School Athletics at its Finest

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: June 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Athletic contests rarely fulfill expectations. Each game begins with a blank canvas with those in attendance hoping to witness a Picasso. What generally transpires is anything from amateur doodles to a quality piece of work, albeit short of a masterpiece, but solid. When greatness is achieved, we bask in its beauty. The key to appreciating good sport and art is to recognize excellence when it is happening right in front of us.

 

For those fortunate enough to take in Wednesday evening’s Eastern Maine Class ‘A’ baseball final between Bangor and Brewer, high school athletics at its finest was on display. The performance between the lines that evening was only part of the entire landscape. The scene was set well before the first pitch was thrown.
