Portland AD to take Westbrook job
Portland High School athletic director Mike Connolly is leaving the school to take a similar position at Westbrook High School. Connolly, who served in his position for two years, is a Westbrook resident and said that living in town, in addition to having facilities on campus, as opposed to all over the city in Portland, influenced his decision. No immediate word was available on Connolly's successor.
Deering baseball coach steps down
Deering baseball coach Tim Eisenhart has stepped down after three seasons. Eisenhart, who went 10-38, said that focusing on his wife and two young boys, his duties as a math teacher and math department chair, studying for his Masters and time spent playing music all factored into his decision.
"Coaching has been a great deal of fun," Eisenhart said. "It helped me connect with the students I teach in a deeper way. I want to continue coaching (Legion ball). I can spend time with my family during the day and coach at night. By not being a high school coach, I can work with players all year to give them a chance to compete for college spots on a national level."
