Leavitt's Hersom to sign with Springfield

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: February 12th, 2012 by Tom Nolette

By Kalle Oakes..Jordan Hersom was the top senior football player in the state. He’s also one of the best in basketball. The gridiron distinction made the Leavitt Area High School star a Division I prospect. As a man for all seasons, however, Hersom has decided that Division III is the best option for pursuing his dreams. Hersom has committed to Springfield (Mass.) College, where he will attempt to play both NCAA football and basketball. He confirmed the decision Saturday night while attending the KVAC basketball championship game in Augusta, where Hersom was honored as the league’s player of the year.

Posted: February 12th, 2012 by Tom Nolette

By Kalle Oakes..AUGUSTA — It’s all fun and games until the Leavitt post players get into foul trouble. Then Nokomis takes over. That was the pattern when the two girls’ basketball giants met during the KVAC regular season, and it played out again Saturday in the conference championship game at Ryan Family Gym. Suddenly unshackled in the paint thanks to the Hornets’ difficulty with the whistles, the undefeated Warriors went on a tear to end the third quarter and sped away to a 65-53 victory. for full story

By Kevin Mills.  WESTBROOK — Sometimes the greatest of achievements are born from the most frustrating of failures.After Mt.

"Our coach (Bob O'Connor) got after us  a little bit after (last week)," said freshman Tyler Craig.  "We definitely weren't wrestling at our best last weekend. I think we did a lot better today. It definitely motivated us."  for full story

Sport: Cheerleading  Message Board

Posted: February 12th, 2012 by Tom Nolette

By Kalle Oakes..AUGUSTA — Maine’s best cheerleading program keeps getting better, or at least more daring and creative.

The trick: Six cheerleaders hoisted high above the mat, four of them held in place by only a single, female teammate.  for full story

By Mike Lowe...WELLS - Maybe it wasn't the cleanest of games or the most prolific offensive showing of either team. But for Rick Clark, the long-time coach of the York High girls' basketball team, the videotape of the 34-27 victory over rival Wells on Friday night still has great meaning. "I'm going to keep it and show it to future teams when I want to talk about toughness and the ability to overcome adversity," he said. "We showed a lot of both tonight."  for full story

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: February 11th, 2012 by Tom Nolette

By Kalle Oakes...AUBURN — Forget the Xs and Os and squiggly lines and the neon numbers for a moment, because they aren’t what settled Friday night’s battle for Twin Cities boys’ basketball bragging rights. Shawn Ricker and his fellow Lewiston seniors simply had that look. It’s the cold, self-assured glare that so many future college players had when they suited up for Edward Little in the past five years of this rivalry. And it said that nothing shy of an act of God would prevent them from leaving the gym with a victory.  for full story
