Cape Elizabeth junior Finn Bowe had his season compromised by injury, but he and his teammates still managed to produce some dramatic moments.

Scarborough junior Sophie Glidden was one of the conference’s best players this winter and led the Red Storm to the Class AA South semifinals.

South Portland junior Meghan Graff helped her team to the regional final, where the Red Riots nearly toppled defending champion Gorham.

The 2016-17 basketball season now belongs to the history books, but it’s certainly worth revisiting.

From the second weekend in December right through the first weekend in March, local players and teams provided entertainment and thrills.
