Nick Perry remembers the fireworks. He was 8 or 9 years old, and Perry recalls the crowds and the food. Most of all, Perry's earliest memories of the annual Winslow Fourth of July celebration center around the fireworks.
WINSLOW -- The location was new, Winslow High School's refurbished Donald Matheson track, but the result of the Community Cup track and field meet was the same. For the ninth consecutive year, the Waterville girls and boys each won the title.
OAKLAND -- Both the Messalonskee and Brunswick boys lacrosse teams knew a fast start would be a key to Friday's game. It was Brunswick that capitalized early, while Messalonskee was left to lament another slow start.
THORNDIKE – As much as Haggie Pratt enjoyed his time coaching football at Nokomis Regional High School, the opportunity to return to the Little Ten Conference was too good to pass up.
Nokomis baseball coach Rob Dominick didn't hesitate when asked. His team's 12-11 come-from-behind win over previously undefeated Winslow on Monday was its biggest win of the season.
SKOWHEGAN -- It took a little while, but once the Messalonskee High School baseball team's offense found its groove at Skowhegan on Monday afternoon, it never lost the beat.
SKOWHEGAN – Brandon Berry, 25, a West Forks native, made his professional boxing debut on Saturday night at Skowhegan Area High School and defeated Bill Jones of Berwick, when the referee stopped the fight at the 2 minute, 9 second mark of the fourth and final round.
If you were hours from realizing one of the biggest goals of your life, what would you do?
SKOWHEGAN -- Brandon Berry took a sip of juice, then nodded his head.
SKOWHEGAN -- As a basketball player at Skowhegan Area High School, Tom Nadeau was a key member of the team that won the 1998 Class A state title. Recently hired to be the head coach of his alma mater, Nadeau said he's ready to rebuild the Indians into a contender.
