Posted: April 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

LEWISTON — The practice sessions for the high jump have been few and far between during the first few weeks of outdoor track season.

 

Attempts had been so limited that Lewiston's Jazy Dumas had meager expectations for Friday's season-opening meet at Lewiston High School.

 

"I was expecting to jump about 4-foot-8," said Dumas, a sophomore. "I didn't expect to do my best, and I wasn't expecting to do horrible."

The playoff race in Western Maine Class C is shaping up to be a competitive one this season.

 

Madison, Telstar, Hall-Dale, Mountain Valley and Dirigo should all be strong clubs and could be among the top squads in the MVC and Western C field.

 

The defending C state champs from Madison graduated five players, including standout pitcher Emily McKenney, but the Bulldogs still have a nucleus of last year's club returning. Eight players on last spring's roster were underclassmen. If the Bulldogs can fill some holes, they'll be back at it again...

2015 Western Maine Class D softball preview

Sport: Softball  Message Board

Posted: April 18th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

If there was a year to topple Richmond from atop the East-West Conference and Western Maine Class D, it might have been last year.

 

The Bobcats had graduated nine seniors and had a young team entering the spring. Still, that group managed to keep the Richmond winning tradition alive with a second straight state title.

 

Now, the Bobcats are back with another potent team. Richmond isn't so young and inexperienced as last year. The Bobcats had no seniors last spring and just three juniors, three sophomores and seven freshmen. That means the Bobcats will be the team to beat in the EWC and Western D.

CHINA — When Jeff Ross ran his first marathon two years ago in southern Maine, he said what most do after completing the grueling 26.2 miles.

 

“I had said I’d never run another one,” the China resident said with a laugh.

 

Ross, who teaches phys ed at Medomak Valley High School and coaches boys ice hockey at Gardiner, is not the type to turn down an opportunity to test himself, though. On Monday, Ross will be one of the more than 30,000 people to compete in the 119th Boston Marathon and the day cannot come soon enough for the 40-year old.
