Winslow boys, girls lacrosse teams set strong foundation

Sport: Lacrosse (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: June 9th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

WINSLOW — The goals were simple for the Winslow boys and girls lacrosse teams as they began their first seasons as varsity programs: Finish with more wins than losses and make the playoffs.

 

Both squads have already assured that will happen this spring, yet as each group of Black Raiders readies to travel for quarterfinal playoff games Wednesday, they are looking to make one more push in their already successful debuts.

Oceanside (14-3) opened the scoring in the bottom of the second inning on a solo homer by Kalyn Grover, who finished with two hits. Lauren Miller also had a pair of hits for Oceanside and scored the eventual winning run on a wild pitch after leading off the fourth inning with a single.

His wife, Michelle Albert, filled out the application for him.

With caveats aplenty, time to pick Eastern Maine baseball champs

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: June 9th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The high school baseball playoffs may be the most difficult sports postseason to project.

 

So many variables separate the end of this season compared to other sports, particularly those contested during the fall and winter.

 

Most of the seniors playing in baseball’s postseason either are busy with graduation-related activities or already have graduated, which at the least creates a different daily routine from what they endured throughout the regular season.

Sport: Softball  Message Board

Posted: June 9th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

SANFORD — Sometimes it’s not easy for even a coach to figure out how his or her team will do in the season.

 

Take Sanford High’s second-year softball coach Michael Bailey for instance.

 

His Spartans will enter the Western Class A softball tournament ranked third with a 14-2 record, their only losses to No. 1 Scarborough (6-1) and No. 2 Thornton Academy (11-9 in nine innings).

Every spring is the emotional end of an era.

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: June 8th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

... Every spring is the emotional end of an era. It reinforces that for all the complaining we do about our society, our schools, our sports programs, or our “system” in general, that the system still gets its right more often than not. We turn out good athletes, solid students and exceptional people around here.

 

To graduate as a student-athlete in 2015 means you have beaten the odds. You have overcome the prohibitive costs and time limitations. You have sacrificed countless family getaway days that had to be rescheduled around games or practices. You have mastered time management skills that escape most adults. You achieved the maximum with your body and mind during what is a trying, four-year season of change for both.

Baseball, softball prelims pit familiar and not-so-familiar foes against each other

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: June 8th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

One of the unique features of the high school sports postseason is that the brackets often match up either non-conference foes with virtually no familiarity with each other or conference opponents who know virtually everything about the other side, right down to what flavor gum each player chews.

 

The baseball and softball preliminary rounds scheduled for Tuesday offer plenty of both scenarios. In Eastern A softball, Lawrence hosts Mt. Ararat in the third meeting of Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference rivals this season, while Nokomis takes a three-hour bus ride to face Presque Isle in Eastern B. In baseball, Maranacook, of the KVAC, hosts Mountain Valley of the Mountain Valley Conference in Western C, while Gardiner and Waterville square off in the rubber match of their KVAC series in Eastern B.

Sometimes, Frank Knight plays ‘What If?’

 

What if he hadn’t played dodgeball in gym class his sophomore year of high school at Lynn (Mass.) Classical? What if the teacher hadn’t noticed Knight’s agility in the game? What if a new football coach at Lynn Classical Knight’s junior year hadn’t help turn a spark of interest Knight had in football into full blown passion for the game?

 

What If is not a game Frank Knight is fond of playing.

Then, about 3 p.m., she stepped into the throwing circle at Yarmouth High and let her first throw go.

 

“It felt really good,” Adams said. “You can tell when a throw doesn’t feel good, but that one felt great.”
