Wrestling with a numbers crunch: Maine Principals' Association proposal would reduce sport from 3 to 2 classes

Sport: Wrestling  Message Board

Posted: January 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

This year’s Bucksport team began preseason practices with about 10 competitors, a number that since then has been reduced to six because of the attrition natural to what is perhaps the most physically demanding sport offered to high school students through the Maine Principals’ Association .But it’s not just smaller Class C schools such as Bucksport that are feeling the pinch of declining wrestling numbers. Even traditional Class A powerhouses such as three-time defending state champion Marshwood of South Berwick and neighboring Noble of North Berwick have experienced similar trends within their wrestling programs. “As teams win, the numbers usually get larger, but I can say we’ve won the Class A state championship the last three years, and our numbers declined this year,” said Marshwood athletic administrator Rich Buzzell, chair of the Maine Principals’ Association wrestling committee. “Noble’s had a tremendous wrestling program over time and their numbers are down, too. I think across the board the numbers are not where they have been in the past for numerous reasons.”...

Posted: January 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

HOULTON, Maine — What a difference a week makes. On Jan. 15, the Houlton girls basketball team narrowly escaped East Millinocket with an eight-point win over Schenck. On Wednesday night, the Shires set the tone early in an up-tempo game, racing by the Wolverines 67-32. “Down there we got off to a slow start,” Houlton coach Shawn Graham said of his team’s 53-45 victory last week. “Their 1-3-1 (zone) bothered us and it wasn’t until the third quarter when we got out in transition more — pushing the ball up the floor — that we got back to the way that we would like to play.”…

Hampden boys basketball team faces grueling road swing

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: January 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Hampden Academy boys basketball team has continued to dominate its Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference brethren on its home court, extending a winning streak at home that spans more than five years to 46 games with a 68-59 victory over previously undefeated Edward Little of Auburn on Monday afternoon. But where the top-ranked Broncos (12-1) ultimately will be seeded in their quest for a fifth consecutive Eastern Maine Class A championship may well depend on how they fare as road warriors next week. Coach Russ Bartlett’s club will travel an estimated 580 miles to play three games in five days against three rivals with a combined 30-11 record through Tuesday night’s schedule...

Sport: Football  Message Board

Posted: January 22nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BRUNSWICK, Maine — J.B. Wells understands the dynamics of being a student-athlete at a New England Division III institution. That should help make the Trinity College graduate a good fit at Bowdoin College, where he has been hired as the school’s 29th head football coach. Wells, a 1991 Trinity graduate, arrives at Bowdoin after a successful, 12-year stint at Endicott College in Boston, where he guided the Gulls to a 75-48 overall record (.640). He replaces Dave Caputi, who stepped down last fall after 15 seasons directing the Polar Bears. “JB has demonstrated an unquestionable commitment to supporting the academic, community and athletic interests of members of his program at Endicott, and we are excited for the future of our football program under his leadership,” Tim Ryan, Bowdoin’s Ashmead White Director of Athletics, said in a press release..

BANGOR, Maine — Aaron Wilcox has won numerous awards during his 17 seasons as boys varsity soccer coach at Bangor Christian School. But his recent selection as Region 1 Northeast coach of the year by the National Federation of State High School Associations Coaches Association almost didn’t happen, and it had nothing to do with his work on the sidelines or his team’s success last fall. Wilcox called the Maine Principals’ Association office in Augusta in October to check on a problem related to his team’s participation in this year’s Class D state championship match when he was congratulated by MPA assistant executive director Mike Burnham...

"I think the turning point was the end of the third," Dirigo coach Karen Magnusson said. "When Lauren hit that 3 and put us up five, that momentum going into the fourth, it was like, 'We've got it.' The confidence on the girls was different. That helped get our rally going in the fourth." The Cougars (11-2) produced an energized and dominant final quarter. Dirigo put together some efficient offense with its stellar defense. In the process, the Cougars held the Raiders to just one field goal...

After the Bull Dogs' run to start the second half, the Red Storm take control for good..With Scarborough High’s once comfortable lead chipped to four points by aggressive Portland defense, four-year starter Ashley Briggs realized something needed to be done. “I believe that we came out pretty flat in the second half,” Briggs said. “We weren’t making any shots. They were hitting some and it was like, ‘Well, something’s got to be done. We can’t let them go on a 12-0 run.’ ”...
