The high school basketball regular season is quickly winding to a close, with teams jockeying for possible playoff positions in games played Friday through Monday, Feb. 2-5.

However, one team that will not have to worry about going up or down in the standings, is the defending state Class D girls champions from Vinalhaven.

The Vikings finished the regular season with an unblemished 18-0 record with a pair of victories over visiting Searsport Friday and Saturday — with Saturday’s win being a 56-55 nail-biting affair. The win gives the islanders a 30-game win streak heading into the postseason.

The Windjammers posted Saturday victories over Mount Blue of Farmington, while the Mariner boys and girls split with Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield.

The North Haven boys and girls also fell in respective contests against Searsport and Temple Academy of Waterville, respectively.

The Medomak Valley boys added a victory over Mount Ararat of Topsham Monday evening.

The following is a recap of reported results:
