Telegram Baseball athlete of the year: Henry Curran

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: July 13th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Henry Curran of South Portland didn’t start pitching until his freshman year. By the time of his senior season this spring, the left-handed Curran possessed a fastball in the mid-80s, a sharp-breaking curve, and the command to throw both for strikes.

 

Curran gave an indication of the type of season he would have on opening day when he held Thornton Academy to one-hit through six innings while striking out 12 in a 7-1 win. Curran would go on to help lead the Red Riots to the Western Class A title and a berth in the state final, where they lost to Bangor, 5-4.

Sport: Track And Field  Message Board

Posted: July 11th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

WATERVILLE — The mark of a great athlete is that even when they have an all-time personal best performance they are left still wanting more.

 

That was the case for Waterville junior Trever Gray at this year’s New England outdoor track and field championships held at Thornton Academy on June 13. Gray uncorked a throw of 160 feet, 4 inches in the discus that was not only good enough for third place, but also broke a 39-year-old school record.

Sport: Track And Field  Message Board

Posted: July 11th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

WALES — Drew Gamage never used to fancy himself as a track and field athlete.

 

He had done the sport here and there during the summer in elementary school, but it was not until his junior year of high school he — at the urging of his older brother, Derek — dedicated himself to the sport. It was not long before he figured out he was pretty good at it, to say the least.

Matt McClintock always enjoys coming home to Athens.

 

Yet this return from Purdue University, where he just completed his junior year with a seventh-place finish in the 10,000 meters at the NCAA Championships, is even more special to the former Madison High School star because no one is trying to make him feel special.

Sport: Golf  Message Board

Posted: July 11th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

OAKLAND, Maine — Mark Plummer made a run. Then John Hayes IV ran away.

 

His lead sliced to a single stroke after Plummer’s birdie on the first hole Thursday morning, Hayes answered with three consecutive birdies and led by as many as seven shots before winning the 96th Maine Amateur golf championship by five.

 

“I don’t know how many birdies I had on the front nine, but it was a lot,” Hayes said. “The back nine kind of slowed me down every day. I got off to a good start and tried to hold onto it.”

WATERVILLE — For the first part of this past outdoor track season, Sarah Shoulta was not herself.

 

About one week after the indoor season ended, the Waterville senior suffered a concussion while playing intramural volleyball. She had dealt with injuries in the past — most notably a left hip issue that slowed her last spring — but this was different.

AUGUSTA — Transferring from one school to another midway through high school can take its toll on student-athletes.

 

For Cony High School senior Madeline Reny, however, it turned out to be the best thing for her track career.

 

“When I transferred it opened up a completely different door in the track world for me,” Reny said. “Cony has an amazing track program, great coaches and teammates. It’s a huge family, which makes that much of a difference.

Posted: July 10th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

OLD ORCHARD BEACH — Scott Heath was recently on the receiving end of a key pitch by a former baseball teammate at the University of Maine.

 

Heath, a left-handed pitcher from Westbrook, was a little despondent after not being selected in the 40-round major league draft last month.

 

To not hear his name called June 8-10, then to wait another week without getting a free-agent offer was perplexing.

“We had a good start to the tournament and were able to gain confidence in our ability to play at that level,” Koizar said in a news release. “What helped us win games was our focus on what the other team wanted to do.
