ORONO – The boy’s basketball team from Orono High School turned heads last season. The Red Riots made their first Regional Semifinals since 1997, and weren’t satisfied with simply reaching that milestone.
In the semifinal game, Orono knocked off the defending State Champions from Houlton before losing the next week in the Class C Regional Championships.
The group that made that postseason run was led by a core of players set to return in 2015-2016. The Riots bring back four starters, the sixth man and have added a talented transfer student. Hear from Coach Jason Coleman and his team as they prepare to make another run at a state title.
