Basketball season is here! Coach Matt Welch has a good group of players who are really enjoying the game. This week the team traveled twice to play other schools. On Tuesday they went to the American School for the Deaf. They lost a close game 30- 28. ‘We were in the lead for a few minutes,” said Welch, ‘but ASD came back to win it.’
On Wednesday we went to the Marie Philip School in Massachusetts. We lost another close game 28 – 20. ”Many players are inexperienced, but they are very motivated,” said Coach Welch. “They have a great leader in Asad Deqow. We are thrilled to have a new star player, Alister Hannah. He is learning the game and has impressed me.”
here is the basketball schedule
It is Spirit Week here at Portland High School. Our students have been getting into the swing of things. Here are some of them showing off their blue and white Bulldog colors. “It’s been great fun this week,” said Josh.
David Murphy did a great job with his Spirit Week outfits this week. We hear he preferred being a doctor over a rockstar!
Portland High School has a new mascot. His name is Kamron King! Kamron will start his new job at the football game tomorrow at Fitzpatrick Stadium. PHS are playing Oxford Hills. Kamron will be the Bulldogs’ mascot for the entire football season. Kamron said, “Being the Bulldogs’ mascot is really great. I love football, and PHS, and I get to watch the games for free!”
