    Student Council:  Today is Hat Day.  Pay $1 to wear a hat in school.  Proceeds go to the 8th Grade end of year activities.

    Basketball:  For many of us, the most exciting middle school soccer game we’d ever seen was the 2021 PVML championship this past Fall in which Coach Duran’s Holbrook squad suffered a heart-breaking loss in double overtime to the Bangor-Christian Patriots.  When many of those same skilled B/C players visited the Ralph G. Russell gym this winter, they defeated a COVID-ravaged Devils basketball team by 18 points.  The law firm of Pangburn, Gideon, & Bowden made it their mission last night to exact some level of revenge in the home of the Patriots.  And they were successful. 

         Josh connected on a couple long-distance step-back 3’s, Devin, as he always does, captained our ship everywhere it had to be, even when the Patriots made it “stormy”, and it was delightful to watch Carson have another prolific scoring night as he put the exclamation point on the end of Coach Smith’s plays and Holbrook posted an impressive, 44-38 win. 

         Our thanks to the girls’ team members who stayed through to offer your support, especially as no ‘away’ team parents/ fans were permitted to attend.

    Last night the Holbrook A girls Basketball team lost to Bangor Christian 32-21. Rylie lead the team with 9 points, Madi, Addison and Josie all with 4 points. Keep up the hard work!

    After School:  Session 2 of World Culture Club starts next week.  There are 3 spots left.  Please see Ms. Norris for a permission slip if you are interested in joining.

Remember, you are not the only John, Nathan, Riley, Lily, etc. in the building.

    Basketball:  Good luck to the boys ‘A’ and girls ‘A’ basketball teams as they travel to play Bangor Christian today.

         Take away Captain Carson Bowden’s points and the boys ‘A’ team would have won by a single point last night vs. Wagner.  Fortunately, we got to count all 28 of his tallies and the Devils rolled on for a big win.

         Asa Sinclair-Steele wowed the crowd with two quick threes and a deuce, while Kam Weymouth connected for our other three-pointer and a 2-point field goal, as well.  Bryson Dameron also contributed a nice power move in the post.

         If you’d like to see a game, but find that the boys have already used up their COVID quota of invited fans, don’t forget that, thanks to Piper Clement, you can livestream all of our home games on Ollie TV.

    The Holbrook boys ‘B’ team faced a tough Winterport team last night.  The final score, Winterport 51 and Holbrook 26.  Kael Andrews scored 6 points, and Keelan Routh chipped in with 4 points.  A. J. Josiah showed great young leadership with his court awareness by making some great passes to the open teammates.  The boys showed grit as they played hard the whole contest. 

    Chess:  Last evening our Chess team continued their march forward to becoming a league contender.  We took another hard loss,  but our eighth graders shined in their matches.  Caleb Clark was not defeated in 5 matches.  Co-Captain Kane Cookson Goodridge, in similar fashion, brought the team 7 points.  Wyatt Allen continues to rise by finishing strong in his last three matches of the night.  Even though these students are mentioned, it was a total team effort against Wagner.  All of our students gave of their best.  Some very outstanding games were played last night.  GO Holbrook!

    Chess team has practice today.

    Basketball:  Good luck to the ‘A’ and ‘B’ boys basketball teams in their games against Wagner at Holbrook today.

    Good luck to the girls ‘A’ basketball team as they travel to play Wagner today.

    The Holbrook boys ‘A’ team startled one of the two most-talented teams in the 2021-2022 Penobscot Valley Middle League, the Caravel Bobcats, as we trailed by a mere five points at the end of the first period in a re-match here last night.  Nine of our eleven players got their names in the scoring column and all exhibited great heart, despite falling to the Bobcats in the end.  One example of that heart and determinations was when Max Jameson, following a bone-to-wood tumble at midcourt, made a few paces up the side hallway to regroup, re-entered the contest, and proceeded to knock down some pretty shots.  Josh Pangburn also put on a clinic that would make the Celtics’ Marcus Smart proud as he sacrificed himself in a successful effort to draw a player control foul against Caravel.  We hope to put more of that gritty determination on display this afternoon as we host Wagner.

    Last night the Holbrook 'A' girls Basketball team won a nail-biting game vs Caravel 37-36; Maddie leading the team with 12 points, Morgan with 6 points, Cecilia and Rylie with 4 points and Grace, Josie, Adriana, Ella, Addison, and Molly had 2 points. Keep up the hard work!

    The Holbrook B team fell to a very tough Caravel team last night 53 to 9.  Holbrook was lead in scoring by Keelan Routh with two points.  Kalib Nutter scored his first point of the season knocking down a free throw.  Nathan Larson grabbed eight rebounds during the contest.  Holbrook now has a record of 3 wins and 4 loses.  Nice effort everyone as we look forward to our upcoming game tonight against the Winterport team.

    Chess:  Good luck to the chess team in their meet with Wagner at home today.

    Cheering:  Cheerleaders have practice today at Eddington School from 3:30 to 5:30.

    After School:  Art Club, Reading Club, After school study

    Good luck to the girls ‘A’ basketball team in their game at Caravel today.

    The chess meet scheduled for today has been cancelled and will be rescheduled to a later date.  Chess team has practice today.

    Cheering:  Cheerleaders have practice today.

    Basketball:     If you told the boys’ ‘A’ team that they’d win three out of four games played back, to back, to back, to back, they’d likely say, “We’ll take it!” Your Red Devils did just that, the most recent one, a win in overtime here last Thursday vs Glenburn.

         One of the most memorable aspects of this contest was the SOUND; as our guys zoomed back from a double-digit deficit, the crowd, somewhat smaller than in years past due to COVID protocols, ROARED to life as Josh Pangburn knocked down clutch shots in the final stanza and overtime and ho-hum, Carson Bowden dropped in thirty-six points. 

         In the challenging week that was, we may have started to take for granted that a 6th grader, Kam Weymouth, has been handling pressure situations very well in a starting role, Ryan Michaud has been working really hard to secure offensive and defensive rebounds for our squad, and the consistent leadership and willingness to battle from Devin Gideon has been key to every win we’ve had to date.

    Thursday night the Holbrook ‘A’ girls basketball team had a tough game vs Glenburn losing 71-14. With only 7 players able to play, the Holbrook girls kept working hard the whole game.  Maddie lead the team with 7 points, Rylie with 5 points, Cecilia with 4 points and Morgan with 3 points. Keep up the hard work!

    The chess team played Glenburn Thursday evening in what I consider a great match.  Our final score was 36 - 24.  Scoring 24 points against Glenburn is a great achievement since Glenburn is the top team in the league and has beaten other teams by far greater margins.  I'm very proud of the sportsmanship of our team members.  We have many games to play and I'm confident that we will continue to become more proficient in handling the other teams.
