ORONO – High school basketball players have the opportunity to improve their games during the offseason, as the summer league continued with a couple games on Wednesday.
Hermon and Penquis squared off in the first game, with the Hawks coming away with a victory.
Last year’s Class C North champion Dexter also hit the floor to play Bucksport.
The summer league offers these schools a chance to play two nights a week against new competition, and Hermon coach Chris Cameron says it’s invaluable experience.
“Kids have the opportunity to improve their individual skills, but it really gives us a chance to improve our team chemisty,” he said. “Working hard in this offseason doesn’t let the rust set in, and we’re trying to [focus] on some of the fundamental stuff.”
