by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

It wasn’t the outcome they’d hoped for, but coach Jim Getchell said the Machias Memorial High School boys’ varsity basketball team is looking ahead after losing the Class D state championship game in Augusta on Saturday, Feb. 29.

“They love to win, and everyone loves to win, but when you think about the fact that you’re second place in the whole state of Maine, a lot of teams would like to be there,” said Getchell.

Machias lost 69-53 to defending state champions Forest Hills High School, located in Jackman.
