Recruiting information Maine Division I basketball prospects should know

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: April 20th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

With the Division I basketball recruiting period winding down, I thought it important to give next year’s seniors some information to keep in mind.

 

I have been very fortunate to have coached some outstanding players over the years. A few were heavily recruited by D-I schools from all over the country. Some were even top-50 programs.

 

I’ve always felt that Maine high school players who want to be Division I impact players by their sophomore year of college need to go to prep school.

Class B West baseball: Just like starting over for Poland

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

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.

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.
