What do the following towns in northern Maine have in common? Caribou, Fort Kent, Fort Fairfield, Hodgdon, Easton, St. Agatha, Washburn, Dyer Brook, Mars Hill, Houlton, Presque Isle, and Stacyville. Wait for it….wait for it…awe; the picture probably gave it away. They all have a boys, or girls, or both, basketball team competing in the 2016 Maine Principals Association Basketball Tournament, quarterfinals round, in Bangor. Each will of course be hoping to be vying at tournament's end for a Gold Ball trophy, emblematic of a state championship in their class.

CONGRATULATIONS to one and all on your excellent season, and best of luck in the tournament!
