Freeport Girls Basketball
Nina Davenport of Freeport makes a move toward the basket on Lake Region’s Tiana-Jo Carter in Tuesday’s Western B girls’ basketball quarterfinal at the Portland Expo.
|Coach: Jim Seavey, first year
Last year: 9-10, lost in West prelim
Returning starters: 3
Impact players: Nina Davenport, jr., F; Leigh Wyman, sr., G; Aubrey
Pennell, sr., PG; Jocelyn Davee, sr., F; Hannah Chase, sr., G.
Outlook: After a year as an assistant at the University of Southern
Maine, Seavey is back at the high school level. His teams won state
titles at Scarborough (2010) and Greely (2004). Pennell’s health is a
concern. She missed the majority of the games last season due to injury
and “tweaked” the same injury at the end of the soccer season. Davee and
Chase played sparingly a year ago but Seavey feels they were
under-utilized and have the talent to play key roles. At 5-10, Davenport
is a strong rebounder (9.1 rpg), tenacious defender (4.1 steals) and top
scoring threat (17.7 ppg) who will have to match up against some of
Class B’s top inside players.
