Waldoboro — The annual Medomak Valley Holiday Classic, an exhibition high school basketball tournament, was scheduled to tip off on Monday, Dec. 23, with four Midcoast squads and 12 different squads set to take the court during the day-long event.

The host Medomak Valley teams were to be in action, as were the neighboring Oceanside squads. Also in action were the Mount Desert Island, Nokomis of Newport, Skowhegan and Foxcroft Academy of Dover-Foxcroft girls, as well as the Penquis of Milo, Lincoln Academy of Newcastle, Nokomis and Foxcroft Academy boys.
