Maine/Nebraska Friendship Series: Maine shines

Sport: Wrestling  Message Board

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Maine wrestlers' confidence was high and the Pine Tree State contingent refused to let up en route to its most successful showing ever in the 31st annual Maine/Nebraska Friendship Series.

 

Mainers gained some momentum and it turned in to a snowball effect, which was certainly dominating and decisive. At the first of four venues through out the Cornhusker state, the Maine continent rolled to a 65-10 win at Fairbury Jeffs Gymnasium It is Maine' biggest margin of victory in the history of the exchange. The Maine momentum continued with wins at Hastings, 62-12, and Central City, 81-13. The final meet at Columbus was billed as the most competitive, however, Maine held its own.

N.H. track beckons for Pro All-Star Series drivers

Sport: Auto Racing  Message Board

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Since its inception in 2001, the Pro All-Star Series has taken Maine’s top stock car drivers throughout New England, Canada and even south of the Mason-Dixon Line for PASS South events.

 

But the series had never held a race at New England’s premier track, the tight-turned one-mile New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire.

 

That changes this weekend. The AIM PASS Super Late Model 60-lap feature will be held Sunday, with a full day of practice Saturday.

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

ORONO, Maine — University of Maine field hockey head coach Josette Babineau described her incoming eight-member class as “very talented and experienced” in a news release Thursday.

Wahlstrom opts out of verbal commitment to UMaine

Sport: University Of Maine Hockey  Message Board

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Oliver Wahlstrom has decommitted from University of Maine men’s ice hockey team according to Providence Journal writer Mark Divver.

 

It appeared that Wahlstrom would follow in his father’s footsteps after he made news in January 2014 that he had committed to the Black Bears as a 13-year-old. It was believed he was the first 2000-born college hockey recruit, making him the youngest player to commit to an NCAA Division I college.

A changing reality for the Senior League World Series

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

After watching the recent blind draw for this year’s Senior League World Series, I was tempted to invite Nick Cowperthwaite and Jesse Colford to join me for the rest of the day at Hollywood Casino.

 

The two Bangor Senior League baseball players, representing Maine District 3, had been just that good at alternately picking baseballs out of a golden bin to place teams in the two brackets that comprise the modified double-elimination format to be used for the SLWS for the first time this year.

Sport: Field Hockey  Message Board

Posted: July 2nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Months and months of practice dating back to the raw, damp days of autumn paid off over a couple of warm weekends in early June for the Maine Majestix field hockey club. For the first time, both its under-16 and U19 teams qualified for the National Club Championship next month.

 

The Waterville-based teams —with players from Cony, Lawrence, Messalonskee, Mt. Blue, Skowhegan, Winslow and Winthrop — both reached the championship game in their respective tournaments. The top two teams from the New England/New York region earned automatic bids to nationals.

Changes needed. At the old ball game

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: July 2nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

It’s easier to get boys out to a skate park than a ballpark these days. For that matter, it’s easier to get them to go to a state park, national park, dog park, amusement park, water park, animal park, marine park and Jurassic Park before they will set foot on a baseball field with a ball, bat and glove in hand.

 

This isn’t going to be a eulogy for baseball because, despite what you’ve heard for the last 20 years or so, baseball isn’t dead. It isn’t even on life support. But it is getting knocked on its keister by a brushback pitch from whatever we’re calling the generation that has the rotten luck of calling my generation Dad.

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: July 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Randy Small has coached hundreds of kids in his 19 years at the helm of the York High School football program.

 

Some kids he remembers more than others, while there are some that, when he hears their name, a wide smile goes across this face.

 

Jack Neary is one of those former players — a player who still, even though he graduated earlier this month, is a role model for the younger players in the York football system.

Post 188 bats go suddenly silent

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: July 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — In June, the shift from spring to summer can be subtle, not defined by a day on the calendar as much as a state of mind.

 

For the Eliot Post 188 baseball team, that line of demarcation has been a little more stark. A team that hit all spring is not hitting now.

 

Made up of many of the players who led Marshwood High School to title contention in Western Maine Class A, Post 188 was held to just four hits Tuesday in a 5-2 loss to Saco-Biddeford Savings on the final day of the month.

Watching good pitchers compete on other teams in an Amateur Softball Association tourney a few summers ago in Maryland served as a motivating factor for Bangor High School softball player Emily Reilly.

 

“It made me want to work harder as a pitcher. I saw how hard they threw and how much spin they put on the ball and I wanted to be like that.

AUBURN — The pitching and the defense were there for Rogers Post on Monday at Auburn Suburban.

LEGION NOTEBOOK: Zone 2 team Andy Valley forfeits rest of season

Posted: June 30th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

GARDINER — Franklin County of Farmington and Gardiner squared off at Gardiner Area High School on Monday night in a reunion of old Zone 2 teams.

 

Each team went into the game having won two of its first three games, but Franklin County already had an extra win in hand before the first pitch was even thrown. That’s because a team in the new Zone 2 has already called it a season due to lack of players.
