AUGUSTA — The fifth and sixth grade Medomak girls basketball travel team opened the season this weekend in Augusta for the Capital City Hoops Classic at Cony High School. 

After a strong showing throughout the weekend the Medomak girls team was able to return to the Midcoast with a third place tournament finish. 

Katherine McKenney was tabbed as the Player of the Tournament for the Medomak squad. 

The team would like to thank Lie Nielsen Toolworks of Warren for making it possible for Medomak to attend the event. 

Game One: Medomak 27, Winslow 8

“The girls were fired up and ready to start the game,” said Medomak coach Andrea Williamson. “They came out in a great full court trap and turned the ball over against Winslow time and time again and were able to put up 12 easy points to Winslow's three points early.”

Messalonskee took a 12-10 advantage before a foul shot from Katherine McKenny made it 12-11.
