MDI girls fall to Gray-New Gloucester in state championship game

You can reach him via email at mmandell@ellsworthamerican.com. Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 PORTLAND — It was a spirited effort, but the Gold Ball’s return to Bar Harbor must wait.Looking to win its first state championship in 16 years Saturday afternoon, the Mount Desert Island girls’ basketball team went up against the Gray New-Gloucester Patriots in a battle of the No. 1 teams in their respective regions. Although the Trojans stuck with their opponents early and made a game of it late, it wasn’t enough against one of the state’s top defenses.MDI ended the season as Class B runner-up Saturday with a 43-30 loss to Gray-New Gloucester in the state championship game at Cross Insurance Arena in Portland. The game marked the end for a Trojan team that still ended the year as both Big East Conference and Northern Maine champions after a strong 2018-19 campaign.“We had some good looks today that just didn’t go in the basket,” MDI head coach Brent Barker said. “It wasn’t a lack of effort or a lack of commitment; we just didn’t make enough shots, and that’s sometimes what happens in basketball.”MDI’s Julia Watras looks to pass against Gray-New Gloucester’s Jordan Grant during the second half of the Class B title game March 2 at Cross Insurance Arena in Portland. Watras led the Trojans with nine points in the loss. BARRY GUTRADT PHOTOThis is placeholder textThis is placeholder textAfter Gray-New Gloucester scored the first two baskets to start the game, MDI took a 6-4 lead after a Julia Watras layup, Hannah Chamberlain 3-pointer and Alexis Clarito free throw. Yet the Patriots (20-2) rebounded from MDI’s six-point spurt with a 12-2 run that gave them a 16-8 lead through one period of play.MDI got back in it to start the second quarter as 3-pointers from Olivia Gray and Watras cut Gray-New Gloucester’s lead to 18-14 with just under four minutes to go. Although Clarito had to sit out the final 2 minutes, 30 seconds after picking up her third foul, MDI (19-3) kept the Patriots at arm’s length the rest of the half and trailed just 23-18 at the break.Gray-New Gloucester scored two of the first three baskets to begin the second half before Clarito picked up her fourth foul of the game just before the halfway point in the third quarter. With Watras earning her fourth with 22 seconds to play in the period on a questionable charge call, MDI trailed 30-22 entering the final quarter.“I think that [foul trouble] changed how we approached the game a little bit,” Barker said. “Throughout the year, we’ve had a little bit of issues with foul trouble and have gotten different people to step up, and I was hoping a couple kids would step up and hit some shots. It just didn’t happen for us today.”After the Patriots got their first double-digit lead of the day when they scored a layup to begin the final period, MDI cut the deficit to 32-28 on a pair of Maddy Candage free throws and baskets from Rachelle Swanson and Clarito. Yet Gray-New Gloucester’s defense was simply too much in the end as the Patriots ended the game on a 13-2 run.“They hunkered down a little bit defensively [late in the game],” Barker said. “We didn’t hit shots, and we turned the ball over. … That’s what it boiled down to.”Watras led MDI with nine points in the loss. The Trojans’ other scorers were Chamberlain with seven points, Candage with six points, Clarito with three, Gray with three and Swanson with two. Bri Jordan had 17 points for Gray-New Gloucester.Members of the MDI girls’ basketball team sport their silver medals as junior Rachelle Swanson carries the runner-up trophy following the Class B championship game March 2 at Cross Insurance Arena in Portland. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLMDI proved to be one of the toughest opponents all season for the Patriots, whose 19 wins entering the game had come by an average of 25.9 points. With the Trojans trailing by as few as four points in the fourth quarter, Gray-New Gloucester head coach Mike Andreasen wanted to make sure his team wasn’t the second to fall victim to an MDI rally this postseason.“We were really worried because we weren’t in a lot of close games this year,” Andreasen said. “With MDI, we knew they came back and stole the Winslow game, and we didn’t want to be in that situation where we could be the team that lost on a buzzer-beater. The kids just dug in and said, ‘Let’s make it so one basket at the end doesn’t kill us.’”The Gold Ball win was the second in three years for Gray-New Gloucester, which won its first in program history two years ago when it defeated Houlton’s Kolleen Bouchard-led squad at the Augusta Civic Center. As was the case in that 2017 win over the Shiretowners, a championship game victory against the Trojans this time didn’t come easily.“If there’s a better team than them in [Northern] Maine, I wouldn’t want to see them,” Andreasen said of the Trojans. “They’re not the biggest team, but they’re really, really tough because they always put five kids on the floor who can score. They looked every bit the part.”The game was the last for MDI seniors Candage, Chamberlain, Clarito, Watras, Lindsey McEachern and Zoe Parker. Those seniors spent three seasons as the primary contributors for the Trojans, and their coach won’t let their accomplishments at MDI High School be forgotten.“They have a special place in my heart,” Barker said. “I just can’t say enough to what they’ve done and what they’ve meant for this program. It’s tough to go out like this, but you can’t ask for a better group of kids.” Latest posts by Mike Mandell (see all)center_img MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020 Latest Posts Biolast_img read more

UW out for revenge against SCS

September 17, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgGREG DIXON/Herald photoAfter starting the season ranked No. 1, the Wisconsinwomen?s hockey team had nowhere to go but down. For the entire month ofNovember, it seemed like all the Badgers did was fall further and furtherbehind. During an eight-game stretch in November the women?s hockey team went2-5-1 and looked nothing like back-to-back national champions.One reason for the team?s early struggles is theirdependence on five freshmen ? who have never had to balance college classes andcollege hockey before ? to play major minutes for the team.?It is always difficult to play your first semester and toplay hockey while you are preparing for your first exams,? junior goaltenderJessie Vetter said of the freshmen. ?So once school ended, and we just focusedon playing hockey and having fun, our team started to do a lot better.?Since the rough skid in November, however, UW (16-6-2,12-4-2 WCHA) is riding a six-game win streak in which almost all members of theteam have contributed. One major reason for the team?s turnaround is theoffense?s rejuvenation and ability to find the back of the net. In the past sixgames the team has averaged 3.5 goals per game.?The biggest reason that we are winning is our ability toscore three or more goals in a game,? head coach Mark Johnson said. ?In thegames that we weren?t successful, we only scored one or two goals. Our defensehas remained pretty good all season, so when we score three or more there is agood chance that we are going to win.?Despite their recent offensive success, however, someplayers still think the team could be scoring more goals.?To tell you the truth, I think that we should have scoredsix goals in all of those games,? senior Jinelle Zaugg said. ?We had a lot ofchances to score more goals, and we need to work on finishing thoseopportunities.?This weekend, the No. 5 Badgers will face No. 9 St. CloudState (15-5-4, 10-5-3 WCHA) at the Kohl Center. The Huskies ? who split a two-gameseries earlier this year against the Badgers ? are a scrappy team that has wona lot of close games this year and will present a strong challenge for UW?srevitalized offense.?Their goaltender can play exceptionally well,? Johnsonsaid. ?We out-chanced them and out-shot them last time, but she came up big,and we couldn?t find the back of the net in the first game.?Along with the usual motivation for winning the game, theBadgers have placed a little extra emphasis on sweeping the Huskies thisweekend. Back when these two teams met in September, UW was on an NCAA-record,32-game undefeated streak, which ended at St. Cloud in a 2-1 loss.?We want to win every game, but there is a little extramotivation because they did break our streak,? Vetter said. ?But in the end itis just another WCHA weekend, and we have to get four points out of it.?Along with the pressure to win this weekend, the Badgers arefacing mounting pressure to catch up in the WCHA race. With only ten more gamesto play, UW trails University of Minnesota-Duluth by eight points in theconference and probably needs to win out to have a shot at the WCHA title.?We have got ten games left, and we are trying to win themall,? Johnson said. ?With that said, however, you can only take the games oneday at a time, and right now we are focused on St. Cloud State.??We like the pressure,? Vetter added. ?Ourteam has made it a goal to win out, and we will work hard and see whathappens.?last_img read more

LA community discusses effects of HSC expansion

September 17, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgLos Angeles County supervisors addressed community concerns regarding possible displacement of residents, public safety and environmental impact on communities affected by the expansion of the Keck School of Medicine of USC. The Los Angeles Board of Supervisors voted in favor of establishing the county’s first “Health Innovation Community Partnership” on March 14. The objective of the partnership is to engage area residents, community and civic leadership in the coordinated development of the Health Sciences Campus. “It is critical for the community impacted by the development of a Health Science District to play a role in determining its future,” said Isela Gracian, executive director of the East Los Angeles Community Corporation. “We anticipate that USC will participate along with community stakeholders and civil leaders in planning for world-class medical services and a biotech center that also lifts residents and communities to new levels of sustainability rather than push us out.”More than 40 community leaders testified in favor of the expansion plans of the USC medical facilities. These plans include possible new dorms, parking structures, an additional hospital, a hotel and biotech labs. Potential uncoordinated development could lead to the displacement of residents in the surrounding neighborhoods leading to negative impacts on housing, children, family wellness and transportation. According to the press release, stakeholders called for more job opportunities, more affordable housing and educational opportunities related to science. “World class medical and biotech development in Los Angeles should happen,” said Maria Brenes, executive director of InnerCity Struggle at the press conference, “but not at the expense of residents’ quality of life, especially low-income communities that already face multiple cultural, health and economic inequalities.”last_img read more
