Medomak Valley Boys Basketball
Justin Rogers of Falmouth drives the baseline past Jonathan Hendrickson-Belloguet of Medomak Valley during the 62-39 victory in the Class B final.
|Coach: Nick DePatsy, sixth year
Last year: 17-3, lost in Western Class B semifinals
Returning starters: 2
Impact players: John Murray, sr., C; Kazu Tibbetts, sr., G; Ryan Ripley,
sr., F; Jonathan Hendrickson-Belloguet, sr., G; Brandon Sober, sr., G;
Boone Olson, sr., G; Michael Williamson, so., G
Outlook: Despite key graduation losses, Medomak Valley is still one of
the top teams in Eastern Maine Class B. They have two of the best big
men in the region in the 6-8 Murray and the 6-5 Ripley. Murray missed
half of last season with a knee injury. Ripley is a 6-5 standout, who
averaged 12 points and eight rebounds a game. The underclassmen will
need to step up if the team hopes to get deep into the playoffs.
Motivated by memory, elevated by plenty of talent
