Defending champs finish 13 - 5

by Phil Stuart

The defending state Class C champs Narraguagus girls. ended their regular season with a 13 - 5 record in a home game win over Class B Washington Academy 45 - 29.

The 13 - 5 record is a bit deceiving because of their 8th place finish in Northern Maine Class C.

The strength of schedule comes into play once again. Six of the twelve wins which applies to Calais as well, came against Lee Academy, Machias and Sumner.

The Lady Knights took control of the game in the early going and never looked back.

SnowMobs invade Machias

The expanse between Helen’s and the Machias Bay Area Chamber of Commerce looked like a snowmobile showroom as dozens of sleds shouldered up while their drivers grabbed a bite, took a break, and made use of the free charging stations. Winter storm Olson brought record snowfalls across the state, and a more than ample covering of the Downeast Sunrise ATV trails.

Tough finish for Clippers

by Phil Stuart

The University of Maine at Machias Clippers and Lady Clippers left the Shiretown on February 9th for their final two regular season games against long-time rivals UMPI and UMFK.

The Clippers lost games to both opponents earlier in the season and it would be tough to win on the road.

The first stop on the trip north was in the Star City of Presque Isle where the Clipper Ladies would face the Owls at Wieden gymnasium.

Machiasport News

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

According to a map posted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Machiasport clocked a mere 41-50 inches of snow in the ten days between Feb. 7-16. I’m no expert at measuring snow, particularly the kind that comes in horizontally at 40 mph, but those numbers seem low to me.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

We urge eligible donors throughout Maine to give blood or platelets following recent winter storms, which have compounded a severe winter blood shortage.   

Snow and icy roads forced 13 blood drives to cancel in Maine over the past week, causing about 343 donations to go uncollected. Since the beginning of the year, severe weather forced the cancellation of more than 300 blood drives in 30 states, resulting in over 12,000 uncollected donations.
