As usual, the annual Flanagan Community Center Boys Invitational Tournament for fifth- and sixth-grade basketball players had a distinct Midcoast flavor as all six participating teams had Midcoast roots from Knox, Lincoln or Waldo counties.

And, by the end of the three-day tournament — which began Friday, March 1 and concluded Sunday, March 3 — it was Medomak Valley that emerged victorious and claimed the coveted tournament title.

Medomak Valley and Rockland had especially strong teams and battled three times in the tourney.

The decades-old tourney now is hosted by the Rockland Harbor YMCA/Penobscot Bay YMCA. For years the event was hosted by the Rockland Recreation Department at the same venue.

This year's double-elimination event included teams from Belfast, Thorndike, Rockland, Waldoboro and Thomaston areas.
