Hi everyone, there isn’t much to report this time, but what appeared was all sports-related news. And that’s OK—but what about the rest of you who are not involved in sports?

Please share your news via email, our Facebook group, or any other way.

Both Vicki Tolton Brown and Ashley N. Waters were inducted into the University of Maine Sports Hall of Fame in early September. Vicki was a track and field star at UMaine and holds six UMaine records. She was a two-time NCAA championship competitor and was named the America East’s most outstanding outdoor track athlete in 2010. Ashley, who was twice an All-America East selection, was the 2008 league player of the year and captained UMaine’s softball team for two years. She received the M Club’s Dean Smith Award in 2009, and is now coaching at Boston University.

Mary Nadeau G is Nokomis Regional High School’s principal and has also provided play-by-play coverage for the school’s field hockey and basketball games.
