The Midcoast high school hardwood hummed with activity through last week and the early portion of this week as a bevy of area basketball teams looked to make marks in their win columns.

Among the recent area winners were the Oceanside girls, the defending state Class B champions, who have won 36 straight games as of Monday, Dec. 19.

The following is a recap of reported results:
