Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: April 19th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Statistics and baseball go together like hamburgers and ketchup.

 

One such number has a bitter taste for Poland in the WMC and Class B West preseason.

 

"We will have six seniors who had a combined seven games played on varsity last year," Poland coach Mike Connor said.

 

Alex Biron accounted for five of those contests before missing the remainder of the season with an elbow injury. Juniors Isaiah Dubois and Pat Kuklinski have minimal varsity experience, and senior Ethan Cailler missed all of last season with a bum knee.

Class C West baseball: Saints, Cougars part of loaded championship chase

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: April 19th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

St. Dom's has appeared in 11 of the past 12 Class C West baseball championship games. Three out of five state titles this decade have gone to Dirigo.

 

If you're expecting those two MVC powers to come back to the pack this spring, you're probably out of luck. Each team returns a one-two combination atop the starting rotation, with enough experience up-and-down the lineup to fuel another title run.

 

Dirigo is rated the favorite on the the strength of Kaine Hutchins and Gavin Arsenault on the hill and Tyler Frost behind the plate. All three are major threats with the bat.

Class D West baseball: Rangeley revives program

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: April 19th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The baseball program at Rangeley isn't new, but it might as well be.

 

Current players are barely old enough to remember when the Lakers won back-to-back Class D West titles in 2007 and 2008, capping the second run with a state championship.

 

For most of them, though, that's the extent of what they know about high school baseball. Rangeley dropped its program after the 2012 season.

BOSTON (AP) — Fifteen rows up, Travis Roy watched from his wheelchair as the goalie for his former team scored for the opponent in the NCAA championship game.

 

He could sense Matt O’Connor’s heartbreak. The mistake tied the game. A few minutes later, Boston University’s hopes for this year’s hockey title ended in a 4-3 loss to Providence.

 

“I just wish I could give him a hug and give him 20 years of wisdom,” Roy said after O’Connor dropped the puck and put it in his own net. “Matt was devastated, but I also know he’ll be just fine.”

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."
