Medomak Valley jayvees net stellar 15-win campaign
Waldoboro — The Medomak Valley High School boys junior varsity basketball team experienced a strong 2013-14 season on the hardwood, which should prove to be positive news for fans of the Panther varsity squad in the coming years.
The Panthers, led by coach Richie Oliver, roared to a 15-2 mark, and proved to be one of the more elite subvarsity squads in the Midcoast.
Team members included juniors Tyler Emerson and Zac Ripley; sophomores Jackson Vail, Robert Cole, Patrick Madden and Tucker Prescott; and freshmen Jon Allard, Maty Moore, Cale Gee, Zidane McMurrin, Taylor McLain, Cam Allaire, Nicholas Grover, Patrick White and Cam Martin.
Medomak Valley scored 52.5 points per game and allowed 37 points per game. The Panthers also had winning streaks of six and seven games, respectively.
“Our defense was our strength all season long, causing opponents fits,” said Oliver. “We played a spread offense and put the pressure on with fullcourt defense.”
The Panthers' most convincing win of the year was a 62-18 win over Belfast, with their only losses being 63-50 to Oceanside and 48-43 to Lincoln Academy of Newcastle.
Medomak Valley netted 296 two-point field goals, 41 three-point field goals and 179 foul shots on the campaign.
