MPA faces historic vote on adding division in basketball

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: April 26th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Gary Stevens, the Thornton Academy athletic director, says the vote Thursday on a proposal to expand Maine high school basketball to five classes will be “groundbreaking.”

 

“In my opinion, it’s the most important vote we’ve ever had,” he said.

 

Several issues will be on the agenda at the Maine Principals’ Association Spring Conference at the Samoset Resort in Rockport – but the general membership’s vote on the basketball proposal is the most anticipated. Last winter, 138 high schools fielded varsity basketball teams.

 

“It’s a historic day in that so many major issues are coming to a head at one time,” Stevens said. “Each school has one vote (to be made by principals or their designees). We’ll make a decision as a state with the best interests of the students in mind.”

Portland, Maine - A chilly night at Hadlock Field couldn't cool off the Sea Dogs' bats, as Portland took game two of their four game series over the Trenton Thunder by a final score of 10-3.

JAY — Each time the Spruce Mountain Phoenix built a lead against Maranacook, the Black Bears found a way to rally. With Spruce Mountain clinging to a two-run advantage entering the seventh, that trend continued and those final three outs proved elusive.

 

"We felt good going into that last inning," Spruce Mountain coach Clint Brooks said. "You always want to get that extra run. We had it. We felt good. We just needed to get outs and not worry about base runners. Then the inning opened up."

AUBURN — She was a standout swimmer in the making.

 

When a young Kristi (Royer) Ouellette began her career as an athlete, one of the first places she excelled was in the pool. She was a promising young swimmer with many laps in the pool ahead of her.

 

Then she held a basketball.

 

"Before I knew it, I was on, like, five basketball teams in one season," Ouellette said. "My parents just put me in as many different situations and opportunities that I could have to play.

WALES — In the first week of the season, softball games are often a case of who’s ready and who’s not. Friday morning’s contest between Oak Hill and visiting Hall-Dale was more like a late-season contest — a series of little things determining the winner.

 

Hall-Dale had a few more hits, and Oak Hill made a couple more errors. That was pretty much all it took for Hall-Dale to come away with a 6-3 victory in the Mountain Valley Conference season opener for both teams.

Foster’s single to left-center in the bottom of the eighth inning scored Reid Shostak with the winning run as Cony rallied from a 2-0 deficit and picked up its first win of the season, 3-2.
