The Mules are making the most of their chances at the U.S. Alpine Championships.. CARRABASSETT VALLEY — Craig Marshall’s injured left hand kept him from competing at the U.S. Alpine Championships at Sugarloaf, but on Thursday morning, Marshall was at the finish line, cheering on his three Colby College teammates racing in the women’s giant slalom. “Come on, Mardi,” Marshall shouted as Mardi Haskell neared the end of her first run. “Stick it!” Haskell, along with Colby teammates Sierra Leavitt and Jeanne Barthold, competed in Thursday’s giant slalom championship. Haskell placed 14th with a two-run time of 2 minutes, 25.76 seconds. Barthold was 21st with a time of 2:29.47, while Leavitt finished 26th, at 2:30.97.

Sportsman’s show brings outdoor enthusiasts out of hibernation. The three-day event features over 100 vendors and seminars and is expected to draw a large crowd..AUGUSTA — Roughly 10,000 outdoors enthusiasts will pay to be indoors this weekend for the 35th Annual State of Maine Sportsman’s Show at the Augusta Civic Center. The three-day event runs Friday (1-7 p.m.), Saturday (9 a.m.-7 p.m.) and Sunday (9 a.m.-4 p.m.). Kelly Allen, general manager of Maine Sportsman Magazine, said the show is the perfect time for hunters and fishermen to “come out of hibernation” and get ready for another year in the Maine outdoors. “It’s going to be a beautiful weekend. The weather’s not going to be super-duper nice, but warm enough so you can get out of the dang house finally,” she said...

After setbacks, Seth Wescott determined to make another bid for Olympics

Posted: March 27th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The two-time gold medal winner has been recovering from knee reconstruction and his father's death, but ‘absolutely’ plans to compete for a spot in the 2018 Games in South Korea.. CARRABASSET VALLEY — For many athletes, a serious knee injury at the age of 36 would signal the end of their careers. For Seth Wescott, it has only fueled his desire to push on. Wescott won gold medals in snowboardcross at both the 2006 and 2010 Winter Olympics, only to miss out on the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee 10 months earlier. But he still plans to compete for a spot in the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea – when he’ll be 41 years old. “Absolutely,” he said this week before the start of the U.S. Alpine Championships at Sugarloaf. “I think it’s doable.”...

Posted: March 27th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Husson University Eagles baseball team will play three consecutive North Atlantic Conference doubleheaders at the Winkin Complex beginning Friday. They will be using a portable fence provided by Allan Farm Fence Co. of Hermon because the Winkin Complex still has a few inches of snow on its warning track. The rest of the field is free of snow. The fence will shorten the home run distances by 15-20 feet, according to Husson head coach Jason Harvey. Husson (2-7 overall) entertains the University of Maine at Farmington at 2 p.m. Friday before hosting doubleheaders against Colby-Sawyer of New London, New Hampshire, at noon Saturday and Sunday...

Central Aroostook basketball coach steps down after 15 seasons, four state titles

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: March 27th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

MARS HILL, Maine — One of the state’s most successful high school basketball coaches since the turn of the century has decided to turn in his whistle after 15 seasons. Tim Brewer, who guided the Central Aroostook boys varsity basketball team to four state championships and five Eastern Maine Class D titles, has stepped down from that post and was recognized this week at the school’s winter sports banquet. Brewer’s son Chandler confirmed his father’s decision, though Brewer could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday due to work obligations. Brewer, a 1995 Central Aroostook graduate who as a junior helped the Panthers win the 1994 Class D state title, became his alma mater’s head coach at the start of the 2000-01 season after two years as an assistant...

MPA plans to cut high school Class C skiing, start Nordic and Alpine championships

Sport: Skiing  Message Board

Posted: March 27th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Significant change may come to high school skiing next winter, as a proposal by the skiing committee of the Maine Principals’ Association would reduce the number of the classes in the sport from three to two for the first time since 1989. “The genesis of this was that we had fewer and fewer teams competing for the overall state championship, particularly in Class C,” said Ted Hall, principal of Yarmouth High School and chair of the MPA ski committee. “In order to bring in a new sport you have to have a minimum of 10 teams — that was the requirement when we brought in ice hockey for girls — so we weren’t really meeting our own entry-level requirements for having combined [ski] teams. “That was really true across all the classes.”…

Posted: March 27th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Bob Walsh seldom passes up the opportunity to talk basketball or to promote his men’s program at the University of Maine. Starting Thursday, the Black Bears’ first-year head coach planned to do both — in the Middle East. Walsh is spending three days in Beirut, where he is the featured speaker at clinics for Lebanese players. “It’s a little bit of a different place to go for the weekend,” Walsh said before his departure. The clinics are organized by Lebanese representatives of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), which contacted the UMaine staff in the hope of enlisting Walsh’s expertise...

Eagles baseball looking to soar high

Mt. Ararat  pitchers and catchers open up training for the 2015 season..TOPSHAM..Spring has arrived. Well, at least according to the calendar. As far as Mother Nature is concerned, winter is going to hang around for a little while longer, or so it seems. However, that hasn’t stopped the spring sports teams from opening up their training sessions. Mt. Ararat High School’s pitchers and catchers reported to the gym on Monday to get things started for the baseball team, with goals for a successful, improved-upon season in the spotlight. Figure, the Eagles have traveled a few bumpy roads in recent time, finishing 2-14 last year and a combined 7- 25 during 2012 and 2013. But, that hasn’t stopped head coach Bob Neron and the rest of the squad from being optimistic. “We have good coaches,” Neron said. “I talk to the (middle school) guys all the time. I ask them who they have, who do they have that could help me, because we’re looking to improve. We’ve had a losing team over the last four years and I think we’re going to start to see a turnaround. There are some good, young players coming up. This freshmen class is probably the strongest class we’ve had since I’ve been here.”...

U.S. Alpine Championships: Vonn's comeback tour concludes at Sugarloaf

Sport: Skiing  Message Board

Posted: March 26th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Thursday’s appearance at Sugarloaf is part victory lap, part motivational speaking tour for Lindsey Vonn. Not that she requires the adulation, and not that she needs to say a word. Vonn, 30, is coming off a season in which she cast out the demons of two surgical reconstructions of her right knee, adding two World Cup championship globes to what could be her personal museum. Every win, every trophy, set a new record that further eliminated the need for discussion about who is the greatest female skier of all time. Yet that living legend, the face and voice of her sport, will travel to the wilds of Maine for what is essentially a symbolic appearance. “I’m not competing, just fore-running,” Vonn said in a telephone interview Wednesday morning. “I’ll be there for the kids. I’m looking forward to being there for the next generation of ski racers, showing them my support.”...
