  • Class A Wrestling: New coach Kevin Gray aims to keep young Noble in the mix

    NORTH BERWICK, Maine — It’s business as usual for the Noble High School wrestling team, which began the season last week with tryouts and opens up this weekend at an invitational meet in Saranac, N.Y.

    Of course, there is one big change with longtime coach Kip DeVoll stepping aside after 40 years with the program — 37 as a coach and three as a wrestler.

    Former Knight wrestler, Kevin Gray, is the new coach. He was an assistant under DeVoll from 2003 to last winter.

    Gray welcomes 25 wrestlers to the Noble roster, including 17 sophomores and freshmen.

    “I had hoped to get to 30, but some kids who signed up or said they would wrestle didn’t work out,” Gray said.

    Noble won 12 Class A state titles under DeVoll, the last one in 2011.

    Although young, the Knights should be competitive as always in Class A. They were runners-up twice in the past three years, including last winter to rival Marshwood.

    Noble’s experience will be in the lower weight classes, led by sophomore Sam Martel at 126 pounds. Martel was a regional champ at 106 last year and a state runner-up.

    Junior Duncan McGilvery, who was third at 120 last winter, will move up to 138. Sophomore Jaden Balcewicz gives the Knights a solid wrestler at 113.

    Four returning seniors who should have a major impact are John Grenier (152), Joe Pilecki (132), Hil Keisker (160) and Colin Cyr (170).

    A fifth senior, Chuck Russell, new to the varsity ranks, could fill in at 152 or 160.

    A trio of sophomores are battling for a spot at 145: Matt Beersworth, Logan Rendell and Alex Rachoskie.

    Two promising freshmen are Josh Cote (120) and Cody Hussey (106).

    At the upper weights, Emmett Levasseur and Jacob Mulligan are vying for the 182 spot; sophomore Blake Ouellette has the inside edge at 195 or 220 and freshman PJ Exel is the heavyweight.

    “We have some athletic kids in the 182 to 195 range who play other sports,” Gray said. “There’s a learning curve, but they’re coming along. We’re a young team so we will be under the radar. We have a lot of potential.”

    Gray expects matches with defending Class B champion Wells, a much improved Sanford squad and rival Marshwood, the defending Class A champ, to give the Knights an idea where they stand. But with an abundance of youth and then some inexperience at the higher weight classes it may take until midseason to get into form.

    “If we get the upper (weight) classes to be competitive, we’ll be OK,” Gray said.

    NOTES: Some notable dates on the Noble calendar are Dec. 13 (Wells, Sanford, home, 5 p.m.), Dec. 29-30 (Noble Invitational), Jan. 24 (Marshwood, home, 6 p.m.), Feb. 10 (Class A South regional at Marshwood) and Feb. 17 (Class A state meet at Sanford). ... The Knights did graduate three key seniors in Austin Shorey, Jake Martel and Kasey Rogers. Shorey, a two-time state champ, completed his Knight career with a 228-30 record, the second most wins in Maine high school history behind Marshwood’s Brad Beaulieu. Shorey is wrestling at the University of Southern Maine. Shorey is also one of three Noble wrestlers with more than 200 wins along with current assistant coach Peter Bronder(203) and 2016 grad Otto Keisker (208).

  • Noble joins Marshwood’s co-op boys hockey program

    SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Noble High School will join the Marshwood cooperative boys hockey team this winter that already includes Sanford and Traip.

    The team will continue to play in Maine Class A South. The new nickname will be the KnightHawks.

    After six years, Noble dissolved its cooperative team with Wells at the conclusion of last season. At the time, it came as a surprise to hockey parents from both Noble and Wells; neither of whom were given a reason by administration.

    Wells has since joined cooperative forces with Kennebunk High School.

    Marshwood athletic director Rich Buzzell said adding Noble bolstered a program that was struggling with numbers. Buzzell said it looks like there will be 37 players, 30 between Marshwood and Noble. That will not only allow for a varsity team, but also a JV squad.

    That is big, Buzzell said, because in past years, Marshwood not only had low numbers, but also had younger players that coach Eric Royal did not feel comfortable putting on the ice in a varsity situation. Having a JV team remedies that.

    Royal will be the KnightHawks’ varsity coach. This will be his 14th season. Royal has local roots. He was a star at Spaulding High school in Rochester, N.H., and later played at UNH.

    Buzzell said there are five players from Sanford and two from Traip.

    Last year the Noble/Wells team had 19 players, 11 from Noble.

    Marshwood and Noble will bear the brunt of the cost, including coach’s stipend, transportation costs and game officials fees.

    The agreement is that if a school has more than five players than they share all costs. Since both Sanford and Traip have five or less players, they are only responsible for a tryout fee and booster fees.

    The boosters, as has been the case in the past, will cover the cost of practice and game ice time at the Dover (N.H.) Ice Arena.

    Buzzell said every player on the cooperative team will have a patch with their respective school emblem sewn to a pant leg.

    Neither cooperative team made the playoffs last year. Marshwood/Sanford/Traip went 4-14, while Noble/Wells struggled through a 3-15 season that saw its coach, Geoff Negm, dismissed with a few weeks to play.

    The KnightHawks will open the 2017-18 season on Dec. 9 at the Dover Arena against Maranacook/Winthrop/Madison (2 p.m.).
