Mustangs ready to elevate game to next level

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Posted: December 5th, 2008 by Tom Nolette

By Ron Hawkes Sports Reporter (Dec 5): The Mount View High School girls basketball team has the ingredients to be among the squads to watch in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B division this season. Hiding away in Thorndike the team sometimes slides under the radar. But perhaps not this winter. Last season, the Mustangs gave defending state champion Waterville one of the best games the Purple Panthers had all year and each player from that Mustang team, with the exception of Kristin Masessa, who graduated, will return. This senior-laden team will be lead on the court by tri-captains, Macy Montminy, Dakota McAdam and Alexis Bennett as the Mustangs try to improve on their overall 13-7 record from a year ago. Off the court, the Mustangs will be led by veteran coach John Donato, who will be starting his fourth season at the helm of the Mustangs. Donato will be assisted by Chris Hink and Steve Bennett. Donato started at Houlton High School where he coached 16 years from 1977-1993, winning 11 Eastern regional championships and five state titles. From there he went to coach Messalonskee High School of Oakland where in nine years the Eagles won about 160 games and made the tournament each year. From there he moved onto the job at hand in Thorndike to guid the Mustangs. This year's Mustangs are seniors Montminy (5-foot-9-inch forward), Jessica Smith (6-1 center), McAdam (6-0 center), Bennett (5-8 guard), Caitlin Raven (5-5 guard) and Cassandra St. Clair (5-6 forward); juniors Kami Harford (5-8, forward) and Alonia Horton (5-6 forward); sophomores Chrissy Larrabee (5-7 guard), Hayleigh Kein (5-8 guard), Lauren Smith (6-1 center), Channing Murphy (5-9 forward) and Cheyenne Dyer (5-6 guard); and freshmen Delainey Kein (5-5 guard) and Anna Piotti (5-9 forward). Caroline Steeves is the team manager. The Mustangs have qualified the playoffs every year since Donato has been coaching there, but this year could bring more. "We have been in the playoffs every year, but we have a chance this year to make a step forward," said Donato. "That is if we work out the cobwebs early." Despite losing a three-year starter in Masessa, Donato knows he has people to step up and replace her and that is always comforting to a coach. "Hayleigh Kein is probably one of the better sophomores in the state," said Donato. "But we have to get everyone else to play at the level of my seniors. We are going to be a senior-laden team and hopefully they will guide us to the next level, but we have a long ways to go yet." Donato has been around the block and he understands what it takes to be successful in any conference, but he also knows the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B division is especially tough. "I think every game, if you don't bring your 'A' game you are going to have a little trouble," said Donato. "The KVAC has a reputation of being a little tough." Donato feels there is no question that Waterville is the team to beat, but other opponents will be difficult as well. "We played with Waterville last year and hopefully we can do it again this year," said Donato. "I've got to get more consistent inside play. If we are going to be successful, my strength is my inside game and I think we can probably play or beat anybody if we get our good inside game." Donato said Belfast is a little bit down with the loss of Julie Smith to injury and Rockland lost two players, including the Dana Clark, to graduation. Camden Hills also lost three of its better players, the coach said, and Lincoln Academy lost a senior to Oak Hill. "It's really up to us," said Donato of how the Mustangs fare. "We have to take care of our own business. Some teams have their veterans back and some do not. Everybody scouts, everybody knows what everyone is doing. We just need to do a better job doing it." When Donato took over the Mustangs the program was down and he had quality young players come in. He made the commitment to go with that youth starting Bennett as a freshman and Montminy and McAdam have started now for three years. "Now they are seeing the idea that it takes teams to win the games, not just individuals," said Donato. "They are very important cogs in the wheel. You throw in a Jessica Smith with two years experience and you bring in a good freshman, now a sophomore, in Kein and Larrabee who will be a factor. It's going to take seven or eight players for us to be successful, but they know the system, they know what I expect and hopefully they will respect my decision on how we are supposed to be playing and put it to good use."
