Wrestling's weighty issue

Sport: Wrestling  Message Board

Posted: January 27th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

A management program makes cutting weight safer, though not necessarily easier.. NORTH BERWICK — Craig Keisker is proud that his sons, Otto and Hil, are wrestlers. He is proud they have the discipline to handle the rigors of the demanding one-on-one sport at Noble High. He’s also glad his sons compete within the guidelines of the Maine Principals’ Association’s weight management program. They have learned to handle diet and weight loss in a much more sensible way than he did at Wissahickon High in Ambler, Pennsylvania, in the mid-1970s. “Back in those days we’d put on snowmobile suits and get in the (locker room) shower, put big drapes in front of the shower and the steam would run,” Keisker said. “We’d be busting weight. And you got out of class to do it. “There was no hydration test. We’d bust (the weight) all that day, jump on the scale, and then put it right back on...

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: January 27th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

By Michael Hoffer..FALMOUTH—The team with the promising present was a little too much for the squad with a very bright future in a key interclass showdown Monday night. Falmouth's girls' basketball team looked to strengthen its playoff positioning when it hosted rival Yarmouth, which was seeking a statement victory to get into the postseason picture. The Yachtsmen, thanks to a decided height advantage which spelled several second chance points, a smothering pressure defense and all-round dominance from senior Ally Hickey, shot to a 15-5 lead after one quarter and enjoyed a 27-11 advantage at halftime...

Lewiston claims EM 'A' cheering title; Bangor takes second

Sport: Cheerleading  Message Board

Posted: January 27th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

By Kalle Oakes..AUGUSTA, Maine — Lewiston left itself a high ceiling for Monday’s regional cheerleading championship. One week earlier, the Blue Devils struggled through a three­-minute routine that was well below its own standards, even as they won their program’s seventh consecutive KVAC title on the same Augusta Civic Center floor. Consider the roof raised and the ceiling smashed to smithereens...

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: January 27th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BANGOR, Maine —- The John Bapst High School Crusaders are in the midst of a youth movement. And it is certainly paying dividends.

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: January 27th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

AUBURN — Edward Little High School’s senior class, at long last, has its first victory over Hampden Academy. Since seventh grade, when the Broncos’ now-senior class was dishing out lopsided wins over Edward Little, the Red Eddies’ seniors had never been on the winning side of a matchup with Hampden. That streak ended Monday. The Red Eddies got their revenge and it was six years in the making. Kaleb Main, Elijah Roe and Ian Mileikis all finished in double figures and Edward Little never trailed in its 69-54 victory over Hampden. The icing on the cake was it made Edward Little coach Mike Adams a winner on his birthday...

In the case of those four players, they are doing more than playing. They have taken on leadership roles for competitive teams...

By Bob Beatham..I apologize. For those of you who have come to this spot each week looking for a celebration of all that is good and praiseworthy in the area of high school athletics, I am sorry. Unfortunately, this is not going to be one of those columns. When I started writing this column over a year ago, I vowed to be above the fray and celebrate all that is good. Having said that, I also knew that because this space would generally reflect a positive tone, when something ugly needed to be addressed, readers might take greater notice...

Monmouth's patience pays off in win over Oak Hill

Sport: Basketball (Girls)  Message Board

Posted: January 25th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

MONMOUTH — Sometimes patience isn't an obstacle but an opportunity. Earlier in the year, the slowing down of the offense and trying to run a patient play might have felt like being shackled for the Monmouth girls' basketball team. The Mustangs thought holding on to the ball and looking for the right shot might have cramped their style. Saturday, that wasn't the case. The plan was to be patient and the Mustangs made it pay off. "That's the first time this year where we tried to be patient with the ball," Monmouth coach Scott Wing said. "The kids didn't take it as 'We don't score.' Earlier in the year, they were thinking that I didn't want them to shoot. That's not the case. We wanted to be looking for that shot going to the basket. We finally got one of them there in the fourth quarter."...

Isaiah and Eli Calder give Leavitt brotherly boost

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: January 25th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

By KALLE OAKES..TURNER — Once a common experience in rural, working-class Maine, brothers starting together on the same varsity basketball team is decidedly rare in the tri-county region these days. Isaiah and Eli Calder of Leavitt are one of only two such combinations this winter. Austin and Andrew Darling of neighboring Spruce Mountain are the other. There have been a handful of other examples in recent years. The Barnies twins of Edward Little, Troy and Travis, come to mind, and Travis and Tyler Frost shared in a state championship at Dirigo. But with families having either fewer children or choosing to space them farther apart, it’s an exception rather than a rule...

Posted: January 25th, 2015 by Tom Nolette
