Officiating in Maine, Part 3: Those watchful eyes have multiplied

Sport:   Posted: May 31st, 2011 by Tom Nolette

By Kalle Oakes, Staff Writer

Game tied. Seven seconds remaining in overtime of a tense boys‘ basketball game replete with tournament ramifications.

Visiting team just missed its bid for a game-winning jump shot. Home team corrals the rebound with seven seconds remaining, enough time to dribble down for its own desperation heave.

Three referees — now the state’s norm for many regular-season games and all playoff contests — hustle into proper position. The hosts find the open man on the fly, but a defender’s presence of mind and wing span prevail, deflecting the shot far from its target.

Officiating in Maine, Part 2 of 3: Being the bad guy tough to learn

Sport:   Posted: May 30th, 2011 by Tom Nolette

By Randy Whitehouse, Staff Writer

A collision on the court forced the ball out of bounds. The whistle blew, but the official decided no harm, no foul.

The Wiscasset High School student section erupted in protest, directing its ire at the referee who looked like he could be sitting next to them in geometry class.

"Hey ref!," one young spectator shouted. "How about a foul? What, you gotta go do your homework?"

With his back turned to the hecklers, Ben Laflin couldn't help but take the whistle from his lips and let them curl into a small smile.

Officiating in Maine part 1 of 3 ... Sports officials needed to answer, make the call

Brad Fogg started officiating soccer around the same time he started working as a guard at Maine Correctional Center in Windham. After 36 years of doing both, he has found they have a lot in common.

"Being a prison guard and soccer officiating are kind of the same," said Fogg, 57, of Gray. "You learn good communication skills. You're firm, fair and consistent in your application of the rules. That's what we want referees to be — firm, fair and consistent."

MAINE SPORTS HALL OF FAME: Support common among inductees

Sport:   Posted: May 23rd, 2011 by Tom Nolette

By Gary Hawkins  

AUGUSTA -- Two-time Olympic gold medalist Seth Wescott choked back tears as he expressed his gratitude for support from Maine residents during induction ceremonies Sunday for the Maine Sports Hall of Fame.

The crowd of several hundred at the Augusta Civic Center gave the Farmington native a standing ovation at the conclusion of his acceptance speech. After assuring fans that he would pursue a third gold medal in snowboardcross at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, Wescott spoke of the inspiration he got from watching Maine's Joan Benoit Samuelson win a gold medal in the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles.

"It was a very impactful thing for me," he said.

6,000 runners expected at Beach to Beacon this weekend

Sport:   Posted: July 31st, 2009 by Tom Nolette

By Steve Sherlock, Sports Editor

CAPE ELIZABETH — Stressing safety concerns and admitting heartache for limiting the size of the field, race founder Joan Benoit Samuelson has an envious problem with no obvious solution.

Too many runners want to be at the starting line Saturday morning for the Beach to Beacon 10K.

Even though organizers increased the field for the 12th annual race to 6,000 runners, the field filled up within minutes after online registration began earlier this year.

"We want to accommodate as many people as we can as safely as we can," Samuelson said on Wednesday. "Obviously, some people are going to be disappointed because we need to keep the race smaller than some people would like us to.

"The runners' safety is our primary concern. We expect some attrition, and we watch those percentages very carefully. We thought we could increase the numbers a bit, again expecting some attrition."

Brown living his dream

Sport:   Posted: July 19th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

By John Cochin
Sports Editor

PORTLAND -- Nick Brown isn't much different from other 18-year-old recent high school graduates who are long on dreams and short on experience. He's earning a little money this summer and trying to bank a little.

He'll attend the University of North Carolina at Charlotte this fall. He's already declared his major: mechanical engineering. Got his minor picked, too.

"Auto racing," Brown said. "I love it."

He lives it, too.

For one so young, Brown didn't look out of place at the traditional midweek press conference for the TD Banknorth 250. He sat between veteran drivers Ricky Rolfe and Tim Brackett at the head table. Glen Luce and Joey Polewarczyk Jr., who ran second and third to winner Kevin Harvick, sat on the other side of the podium.

Everywhere Brown looked, he saw his elders, even if Joey Pole, as he's called, is only two years older. Brown's eyes didn't get big. He didn't even try to talk big.SANFORD—The Mainers snapped out of their midseason slump with four straight wins over the weekend, including a well-played 4-1 victory over Danbury at Goodall Park on Friday before 777 fans. On Tuesday, they came from behind to defeat Vermont 10-6 after posting a 6-3 win over Keene in a game played there Sunday. On Saturday, they defeated the Lowell All-Americans 8-5.

Gatti looms large to Lewiston's Gamache

Sport:   Posted: July 17th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

STEVE SOLLOWAY Kennebec Journal & Morning Sentinel 07/17/2009

As Joey Gamache sits in a Manhattan courtroom, listening to attorneys argue his seven-year-old lawsuit against the New York State Athletic Commission, he might ponder the tragic irony: In life, Arturo Gatti was much bigger than Gamache when they met in the ring at Madison Square Garden in the winter of 2000.

That's the basis for the lawsuit.

In death, Gatti has loomed larger than Gamache just when they were to meet again. Gatti, 37, was found dead in a Brazilian resort last weekend, apparently strangled by a purse strap while he slept. Police are questioning his 23-year-old wife, a former stripper.

Gatti was to testify in front a judge at the non-jury trial. His death, coming so soon after the deaths of quarterback Steve McNair and Alexis Arguello, another former champion, has been a bonanza for the Internet and New York tabloids especially. Gatti fought many of his biggest fights in New York and Atlantic City.

Sports deems Camden Hills best sports high school in Maine

Sport:   Posted: July 7th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

ROCKPORT — For years, Camden Hills Regional High School has produced state champion teams and individuals in a variety of sports, and it is that ability to be consistently competitive across the board — and from one sport to another — that again has enabled the Windjammer athletic program to gain national recognition.

"After sifting through state tournament results for the 2008-09 school year, contacting athletic directors from top programs, examining all-around success rates as well as weighing the importance of producing star athletes and teams that excelled on the national level, [Sports] has assembled a list of the top high school athletic program in each of the 50 states, plus the District of Columbia."

Those results include recognition for Camden Hills as Maine's top sports high school.

One sport or several sports: the choices they make

Sport:   Posted: July 4th, 2009 by Tom Nolette

Some athletes must decide to devote all their time to one sport, or spend summers juggling.
By MIKE LOWE, Staff Writer

Baseball or basketball? Basketball or soccer? Soccer or hockey? Hockey or football? Football or lacrosse?

High school athletes today have more choices than ever when it comes to summer sports. And it seems to be causing many of them to start deciding whether they want to continue playing multiple sports, or concentrate on one.

"You're seeing (specialization) more and more at a very young age," said Gary Fifield, the women's basketball coach at the University of Southern Maine. "And I really think that if they start specializing too soon, they really miss an opportunity for cross training and everything else.

"There is a certain point where it's a matter of keeping up with the Joneses; people are doing it because everyone else is specializing. And if you don't, and someone else is, you're going to be left behind."
