Nokomis is chasing another sporting championship

The Nokomis Warriors were new to the world of Maine high school sports last winter, as five-star inductee Cooper Flagg and twin brother Ace led the Newport school boys’ basketball team to the first Class A state championship in program history.

The Flag twins play AAU basketball nationally this spring, but the Nokomis baseball team is starting to make its own headlines with a good 9-3 record for a top four finish in the latest North Heal Class B points rankings.

“We have a good little baseball team,” said Year Two coach Jeff Chretien.

Nokomis returned from the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown last spring and finished the regular season with a record 5-11 while playing a dominant Class A regional schedule that included clashes with North Champion Bangor and North Finalist Skowhegan as well as Brewer, Hampden Academy and Messalonskie from Auckland.

The Warriors then overturned No. 4 Belfast 4-2 in the Class B Northern preliminary round before knocking out in the quarterfinals of No. 5 Mount Desert Island 7-6 in 11 rounds.
