Sport: University Of Maine Basketball  Message Board

Posted: April 15th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The University of Maine basketball team went on a 14-game winning streak, boosting the popularity of replica jerseys and other gear.

 

ORONO — Winning sports teams typically generate a buzz.

 

They can lead to a little more credit-card activity as well.

 

The University of Maine got a small taste of that this winter when its women’s basketball team went on a 14-game winning streak. Crowds for the final three home games exceeded 3,000. Sales of merchandise at those three games tripled the average from the previous year.

The University of Maine football team is going through spring practices with two players still trying to become the top dog.

 

Dan Collins and Drew Belcher both gained experience last year, but neither distinguished themselves in a 5-6 season. They are taking equal repetitions this spring with the Black Bears’ starting offense.

SOUTH PORTLAND — After an extended winter, Alexis Garrison finally was able to get her South Portland High softball team out of the gym and onto the field Monday.

Maine Baseball Report: PPH-Jantzen Witte made a perfect choice

Sport: Baseball

Posted: April 15th, 2015 by Matt Boutwell

BY KEVIN THOMAS STAFF WRITER


Growing up in Arlington, Texas, Jantzen Witte pounded ball after ball. On the tennis court it meant forehands, backhands and overhead smashes.


In the batter’s box, Witte lined balls into the gap. Witte became quite the tennis player, ranked No. 1 in his age group in Texas. But tennis is not baseball. There are no teammates and, well, for Witte, it just wasn’t as much fun.


“Just got burned out,” said Witte, who left tennis at the ripe age of 14. “I stuck with baseball. Hopefully that’s the right call.”
