    Student Council News:  Student Council is sponsoring a canned food drive for the month of February.  All donated food items will go to CHEFS (Clifton, Holden, Eddington Food Support).  Let's have a grade level contest and see which grade level can donate the most canned goods.  This will start Wednesday, February 1st.  Together we CAN make a difference.

     

    Next Friday, February 3rd is Holbrook Spirit Day.  The Holbrook teams are getting ready for tournaments.  Please show your support for basketball, chess, and cheering  by wearing school colors.  We want to see lots of red, white, black, and Holbrook clothing!

     

    Games Rescheduled:  The basketball games and chess meet vs Glenburn originally scheduled for yesterday, January 25th have been rescheduled to Friday, February 3rd.  

     

    Cheering:  There is cheering practice tonight at Eddington School from 3:45-5:30.

     

    Chess: The Bucksport team rolled into Holbrook looking for a win yesterday.  Unfortunately for them, their expectations fell short.  Coming off a disappointing loss to Orono, Holbrook rallied for the victory.  We had one of the most exciting meets of the season.  In the first three of five rounds we were tied, but in the fourth we took the lead and it looked as if we could deliver the knockout punch.  Bucksport wasn't having it and they almost caught us.  But in the end, with much better playing from our top boards and some unbelievable play from our second tier, we squeaked out a 31-29 barn-burner.  Great match.  Please encourage your Chess team as they close out the season with three meets next week and playoffs on Saturday.  We're in!

     

    Boys ‘A’ Basketball:  Some in the area have commented on the improvement the boys’ ‘A’ team has made since the beginning of the season, but it appeared in the first half of the game last night here at Holbrook, that the Bucksport Golden Bucks had improved, as well.  It was a one-point game after one period and our guys held a mere four-point edge at the break. 

               

    However, in the second half, with the highlight reel shot of Alton Potter, the rebounding efforts of Aiden Biecheler, and Josh Pangburn adeptly running the show from the point guard spot, the Devils prevailed.  Now Ty Williams may not like being referred to as a “garbage man”, but the way he cleaned up everyone’s messes and put them in the bucket on his way to a twenty-one-point night was certainly impressive. 

               

    Finally, we’d like to thank Emmett Lemieux for his efforts in making the difficult transition from contributing player to team manager, due to injury.

     

    Boys ‘B’ Basketball:  Yesterday the boys ‘B’ basketball team played here against Bucksport and was able to pull off a 37-31 victory, improving our record to 5 and 5 on the season.  Neo Cote had a phenomenal game leading the team with 20 points and 4 assists.  Ian Giordano added 4 points, Andy Girard had 3 points along with Korbin Cullen, Kaleb Nutter and Tyler Rose adding 2 points each.

     

    We head into next week playing Winterport Tuesday at home, Caravel away Wednesday, Milford away Thursday, and Glenburn at home Friday.  We will have our first playoff game next Saturday, February 4th, at Glenburn School.  Make sure to come out and support your boys and girls basketball team for our last week of games this season.  Go Red Devils!

     

    Girls ‘A’ Basketball:  The girls ‘A’ Team played in a barn burner last night. The teams were running end to end and the Red Devils worked hard to come back. Riley Soucy was leading scorer with 10 points and Maddie "Mad Dog" Peters had nine to lead the team. Bucksport won the game 30-28.

     

    Girls ‘B’ Basketball:  The B girls had a fantastic game against Bucksport. Sydney Kinkade had a game high score of 18 points. Mallorie Haulk added 12 and Ella Madden added 4 points. Lily Schaub and Savannah Madore had a few nice shots each that just missed! Emma Herald, Sophie Tardiff, Nora Williams, and Claire Fox played tough defense! ‘B’ girls have EARLY practice at Holbrook today!

The Girls battled with Adrianna Jandreau leading the way with her physical play in the paint. In the end CDS pulled out a squeaker. The girls want to thank everyone for their support. GO RED DEVILS! 

     

    Girls ‘B’ Basketball:  The ‘B’ girls had a great game against Center Drive! Sydney Kinkade was our top scorer with 8 points.

    Boys ‘A’ Basketball: Last night at Center Drive School, the boys ‘A’ team had its lowest offensive performance of the season…it was also our best game to date!  When the Eagles visited our gym last month, they posted 58 points and beat us by 19.  Your Red Devils held them to a mere fifteen points last evening and our guys escaped with a well-earned eight-point victory. 

               

    Once again Gavin Seavey delighted his teammates with his two buckets and our starters each posted between two and six points apiece, but as the saying goes, “offense makes the highlights film, but defense wins the game” and men, your team defense was OUTSTANDING.  Congratulations.
