Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: March 21st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Division I-bound senior helped turn Messalonskee basketball around..Something struck Nick Mayo when his coach at Messalonskee, Pete McLaughlin, called him Thursday night and asked him if he could be at the high school bright and early Friday morning. “He told me to meet him at the school at 6:45 a.m.,” Mayo said. “I knew something was up.” His suspicions were confirmed when he arrived in McLaughlin’s classroom to find not only his coach but his parents, Scott and Jennifer, waiting for him...

Longtime basketball official, tourney director will be missed

Sport: Basketball (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: March 20th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The state’s sports scene lost one of its most enduring contributors with the death of Bob Whytock on Sunday in Augusta at age 83. While Whytock turned in standout seasons as a tight end on the University of Maine football team in the early 1950s before embarking on a long, successful career as a Cony High School educator, my memories of him are as a longtime high school basketball official and director of the Western Maine high school basketball tourneys in Augusta...

UMaine hockey team expects difficulty replacing two players

Sport: University Of Maine Hockey  Message Board

Posted: March 20th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The struggling University of Maine men’s hockey program has suffered a significant setback with the departure of 2013-14 second-team All-Americans Devin Shore and Ben Hutton. Head coach Red Gendron and assistants Jay Leach and Ben Guite knew this was the likelihood and prepared for it during their recruiting. Even though neither player had the type of season they hoped for, they will be difficult to replace on a team that has a 14-22-3 record to overcome. Both passed up their senior years to sign pro contracts: Shore with Dallas and Hutton with Vancouver...

Posted: March 20th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

LEWISTON — Maine’s first officially sanctioned season of unified basketball was an unqualified slam dunk. Perhaps fitting, then, that it ended with the next-best thing — a buzzer-beating hook shot in overtime. Hampden Academy senior David Manzo’s flick of the wrist found nothing but net as the horn sounded, …

Maine high school wrestling shifts to two classes; co-op teams possible

Sport: Wrestling  Message Board

Posted: March 19th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Low participation in Class C leads to the change, which also shifts the class of some teams.

After the 2013 season the Maine Principals’ Association scrapped regional tournaments for Class C wrestlers. Now the whole class will be eliminated and wrestling will consist of Class A and Class B. Class A will be schools with 575 or more students. “The intent is that we’ll have more schools with full teams,” said Gerry Durgin, the MPA’s representative on the Wrestling Committee. “Then when we get to the regional tournaments, we’ll be able to fill all of the brackets.” The move to two classes has been much discussed over several years. It was recommended by the MPA Wrestling Committee last November. If there was any doubt, seeing only two of the 14 weight classes with full eight-man brackets at the Class C state tournament helped convince the classification committee and interscholastic management committee to be in full agreement...

Liz Wood is the driving force on the UMaine women's basketball team

Sport: University Of Maine Basketball  Message Board

Posted: March 19th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

The Black Bears have a 23-8 record with Wood as the star, heading to the WNIT on Friday night

ORONO — As sports nicknames go, “The Fulcrum” isn’t nearly as catchy as “Teddy Ballgame” or “The Galloping Ghost.” But anyone who has followed the Maine women’s basketball team’s rise the past three years knows exactly who Coach Richard Barron is talking about. “You’ve got to have some sort of fulcrum, something that you balance everything around, a starting point. Liz (Wood) is that for us,” Barron said. “Everybody plays better when she’s out there. There’s something comforting about her presence on the floor.” The Black Bears are 23-8 and about to play in the WNIT for the first time in 10 years, opening at Villanova on Friday. There are many reasons for this – starting with Barron, who arrived in Orono four years ago and quickly fashioned a deep roster full of skilled players who have jelled under his tutelage...

Potential growth of high school lacrosse linked to financial sustainability

Sport: Lacrosse (Boys)  Message Board

Posted: March 19th, 2015 by Tom Nolette

BANGOR, Maine — Interscholastic athletics typically comprise about 2 percent of an average school budget. But the competing interests for such scarce resources can be as intense as a Duke-North Carolina basketball game. Not only does the cost of existing offerings usually increase from year to year, but other sporting interests often evolve from individual passions to formal requests for a school to stretch its athletic budget in the interest of broadening the competitive menu. Ask a handful of Maine high school athletic administrators for a wish list, and they’ll invariably suggest adding the likes of volleyball and girls ice hockey to their athletic programs — if they don’t already offer those sports and with the benefit of an unlimited checking account...
