WATERVILLE – Unified basketball is all about sportsmanship. But on Thursday night, there was a little bit more at stake as No. 2 Westbrook eyed its first gold ball in program history.
The Blue Blazes were able to pull away from No. 1 Hampden/Bangor in the second half to win 54-42.
“This is probably the best season we ever had and I was so proud that we came this far my senior year,” Westbrook senior Kevin Trynor said. “It was the greatest moment of our life. We all stuck together we’re one big family we all work together and we stick together,” Westbrook senior Matthew Fecteau said.
Despite falling short in the state championship, the Broncos were happy and proud to be able to play for a gold ball.
“I’m so proud of my team and i’m so proud that we at Hampden Academy have this opportunity to be able to display that and let them shine in a competitive nature,” Broncos head coach Andrea Lee said.
“We play, we try to make sure that everybody gets a chance and I think once more schools see that and the difference that it’s making on the people that don’t get these chances I hope that it really does open possibilities,” Broncos senior Sarah Southard said.
