Rockport — How best to sum up what transpired on the gymnasium court on Saturday night, March 24 at Camden Hills Regional High School?

Well, the words awesome, impressive, incredible, spectacular, stupendous, inspiring, thrilling, unbelievable and stunning come to mind.

However, even those descriptions do not do justice to explain the high-level of performance put forth by area teenagers in the two fun-filled, down-to-the-wire basketball games.

So we will stick with just one word: Wow!

The third annual Midcoast High School Basketball Showcase lived up to its moniker in every sense, as it truly "showcased" the shooting, passing, dribbling and dunking skills of the area's best student-athletes.

Watch videos below, including game highlights and the coaches miked up.

While defense clearly was not evident in the boys clash, while the girls, on the other hand, combined inspired defense and eye-opening offense, the final games of the high school careers of nearly 40 players kept hundreds of fans enthralled with the competitive drama that played out on the court.

Where to start?

There were lots and lots of points. The girls game needed overtime to decide. The boys game needed two overtimes to determine a winner, including having the matter settled with, appropriately, a three-point field goal.

The four teams combined to net 437 points, sink 65 3-pointers and throw down a handful of powerful slam dunks.

The games held high drama and, for the most, proved mesmerizing.

And the event was started with a beautiful rendition of the national anthem sung by Camden Hills student Emma Hallundbaek.

The seniors were divided into teams that represented Ken Waltz and Mark Haskell of the Courier Publications/VillageSoup sports staff.

The following are the players for each team:

Team Waltz girls: Belfast's Macy Gale; Camden Hills' Laticia Billings and MiAe DeWaard; Vinalhaven's Déja Doughty, Ashlyn Littlefield and Amber Shane; Medomak Valley's Gabby DePatsy; Mount View's Andrea Crosby and Paula Miller; and Searsport's Brooklynn Alberts. Vinalhaven's Sandy Nelson coached the team. Alberts was unable to participate.

Team Haskell girls: Medomak Valley's Hallie Kunesh; Oceanside's Gabby Simmons, Camden Hills' Lauren Miller, Nicole Brown, Mya Wiley and Kira Barley; Vinalhaven's Cheyenne Bickford, Gilleyanne Davis-Oakes and Paige Dennison; Searsport's Audrey Walker; and Mount View's Katelin Bennett. Medomak Valley's Ryan McNelly coached the team. Walker and Bennett were unable to participate.

Team Waltz boys: Camden Hills' Noah Heidorn and Jesse Fraser; Belfast's Tyler Bartlett and Skylar Perkins; Mount View's Adam Reed; Vinalhaven's Keon Arey; Medomak Valley's Josh Goldrup; Oceanside's Josh Peaco and Leo Reid; and Searsport's Ben Powell and Connor Kneeland. Belfast's Terry Kenniston, the school's assistant principal and athletic director, will coach the team. Fraser, Powell, Perkins and Goldrup did not participate.

Team Haskell boys: Camden Hills' John Curtin and Daniel Peabody, Oceanside's Michael Norton Jr. and Jack Freeman; North Haven's Brandon Brown; Medomak Valley's Brent Stewart; Vinalhaven's Elijah Ames; Belfast's Stanley Sturgis and Dakoda Doolan; and Mount View's Max Tomlin. Camden Hills' Jeff Hart coached the team. Ames did not participate.

In a last-minute change, Peabody volunteered to switch teams and, thus, played on the Waltz team, which gave the squads eight players.

The event's lead sponsor was Rockport Automotive, while the tee-shirt sponsor was KDK Embroidery in Thomaston.

The games, which were extended to four 10-minute quarters to give players extra court time (regulation high school games are 8-minute quarters), were incredible on so many levels, and for a variety of reasons.

Haskell's blue-shirted visiting teams swept to victories.

One of the most interesting elements of the games is that regular-season teammates often battle against one another on this night. There were plenty of interesting moments between classmates, most notably between Windjammers Curtin, Peabody and Heidorn, as well as Billings and Brown. A few times down the court, Curtin even enjoyed a handful of popcorn from friends in the stands.

There were plenty of fans of all the players and schools/counties in attendance, as well as a strong group of supporters from Vinalhaven.

Girls game

Haskell's squad earned a hard-fought 83-81 overtime victory. The game was tied 74-74 at the end of regulation.

The contest pitted the much taller Waltz team against Haskell's squad. The play was even throughout as the 18 student-athletes left every bit of effort and energy on the court with hard-nosed defense, scrappy play and intense action.

For Haskell's Blue, Wiley poured in 15 points; Kunesh 14; Dennison and Davis-Oakes, 12; Simmons and Miller, eight; Barley, six; Brown, five; and Bickford, three.

The team finished with 13 3-pointers, including four from Wiley and Kunesh, two from Simmons and Dennison and one from Brown. The squad netted 12-of-26 free throws (46 percent).

In the pivotal four-minute overtime, Simmons and Kunesh drilled key 3-pointers and the winning team made three foul shots.

For Waltz' White, the triple tall towers of DePatsy (21 points), Crosby (20) and DeWaard, (16), led the charge, while Littlefield added eight; Doughty, five; Billings, four; Miller, three; and Shane and Gale, two. The island girls, Doughty with five and Littlefield with two, keyed the overtime scoring.

The team netted seven 3-pointers, including two from Littlefield and one from Billings, Doughty, DePatsy, Miller and Crosby. The squad made 8-of-14 foul shots (47 percent).

In the end, White had most of the height — Crosby at 6 feet 3 inches, DePatsy at 5-11 and DeWaard and Gale at 5-10 — but the scrappy Blue pulled out the tight, hard-fought victory.

Crosby finished with a ton of blocked shots and rebounds. Several other players also grabbed a number of rebounds and dished a bundle of assists.

Boys game

The court battle, which ended with a 138-135 win for Blue, turned out to be a display of incredible speed, athleticism, skilled passing and impressive shooting range and accuracy, all made more special by an improbable shot to tie the game at the end of regulation and force the first of two overtimes.

With his team trailing by three points, Heidorn took an inbound pass, raced down the court, made a nifty move to the middle of the court and — blanketed by several defenders — tossed up an off-balanced shot that banked off the backboard in through the net as the buzzer sounded to send the game into overtime.

The crowd roared as one team celebrated and the other stood stunned as victory was grabbed from their hands.

"The game was a bunch of fun," Heidorn said. "I think it was a super fun way to end the season, to go out and have fun with a bunch of guys you don't normally get to play with. And I can say there was probably a negative-percent chance that I was thinking that last [tying] shot was going in. It was kind of a heave and we were just hoping for the best. It was just a fun way to end my season."

Heidorn said when his "heave" went through the hoop, at first, he was in disbelief, then euphoria swept over him and he jumped around and celebrated with teammates. Asked about his thoughts when he hit the shot, he said, "I was thinking it was way past my bedtime."

Norton said, like the others before him, he was simply trying to win the game by making a 3-pointer. To end the game. "I just shot it and it happened to go in. Everyone had the hot hand tonight. [It was fun to make the winning shot], especially since it was in double-overtime."

Asked if the longer-than-normal game was exhausting, Heidorn said with a smile, "I would say we took our breaks on the defensive end."

The teams were tied at the end of the first four-minute overtime and the coaches and players decided in the second overtime, the team that hit the first 3-pointer would be declared the winner.

With a combined 44 3-pointers to that point, it seemed appropriate to settle the battle in that manner. After several near misses from beyond the arc, Norton drilled a trey from the top of the key to give Blue the victory and send the exhausted players and fans home with happiness in their souls.

While the game included a boatload of 3-pointers, a couple even from near midcourt, it also included a handful of dunks, from Reid, Curtin and Tomlin, for example.

There also were many delightful and crowd-pleasing individual performances, most notable from Heidorn and Peabody, who played their final games on their home court. Heidorn finished with an incredible 46 points and 10 3-pointers and Peabody 35 points, with five treys, for losing White.

Also for White, Reid tallied 20 points; Peaco, 16; Kneeland, nine; Reed, four; Bartlett, three; and Arey, two.

The team drilled 20 3-pointers, including three from Kneeland, two from Reid, and one from Bartlett. Peaco took and made the only two free throws for his team.

For victorious Blue, Stewart went off from behind the arc, as he finished with 29 points, including nine treys (that means he and Heidorn had 19 3-pointers between them), while Norton not only hit the winning shot, but added 27 points. Curtin finished with 22 points; Sturgis and Tomlin, 16; Freeman, 12; and Brown and Doolan, six.

The team tossed in an astonishing 25 3-pointers, including the nine from Stewart, four from Curtin and Sturgis, three from Norton, two from Tomlin and one from Freeman, Brown and Doolan. The squad made 4-of-9 free throws (44 percent).

The officials for the games were Otis Kneeland, Bill Stuart, Chris Barstow, Mike Gamage, John Sprague and Juan Alcala. Cheryl Beveridge was the scoreboard operator, while bookkeepers included Holly Vanorse Spicer and Kunesh.

Three-point contests

At halftime of the games, there were 3-point shooting contests. In those contests, five boys and girls, who earned the right to compete from the day's earlier practices, got to take 15 shots, including five balls in three locations on the court, in one minute. The first four balls in each rack were worth one point and the fifth two points.

The girls who qualified for the night competition were Billings, Kunesh, Simmons, DePatsy and Davis-Oakes. The boys who qualified were Brown, Peabody, Stewart, Tomlin and Bartlett.

The winners were DePatsy and Bartlett.

For the girls, DePatsy scored 12 points, Kunesh nine, Simmons and Davis-Oakes seven and Billings, five. For the boys, Bartlett ended with 11 points, Peabody nine, Stewart and Tomlin, seven and Brown five.

Background information

This year's group included top players from a bundle of playoff teams, some of which surged to state and regional championship games, a player who tallied more than 1,300 career points, and a taller overall group, including 6-3 Crosby and 6-6 Peabody and Curtin, as well as 6-7 Peaco.

The Midcoast's version of March Madness — high school-style — took off on one night, four days after the official start of spring.

The teams had been selected/constructed from 40 student-athletes invited to participate in the fun, laid-back event, which this year was free to the public, although donations were accepted at the door to raise money to donate to area schools' athletic programs.

That, of course, meant the area's most talent and experienced high school basketball players got one final opportunity to showcase their talents.

Student-athletes from nine high schools were invited to participate in the showcase. The previous two showcases were at Oceanside and Medomak Valley high schools.

Again this year, student-athletes from Knox, Waldo and Lincoln counties had a day and venue to showcase their impressive court talents one final time for family, friends and fans.

Senior basketball players from Medomak Valley, Oceanside of Rockland/Thomaston, Camden Hills of Rockport, Belfast, Mount View of Thorndike, Searsport, Islesboro, North Haven and Vinalhaven were invited to participate in the games. Some of the schools did not have senior players on this year's team, thus, were not represented.

The players were selected by the Courier Publications/VillageSoup sports staff after consultation with area coaches.

After a pool of 20 boys and 20 girls were selected from the seniors on all the teams in the area, Ken Waltz and Mark Haskell of Courier Publications/VillageSoup drafted "their" squads, as they did in the first two years of the event. Thus, there again were two Waltz teams and two Haskell squads.

The White teams, the hosts, represented Waltz, and the Blue, Haskell's visitors.

Players invited to participate in the event were notified with a formal letter, sent to their schools, in early March.

A printed program that included photos of the players, coaches and officials, along with statistical and other information, was available at the games and appeared inside the March 22 editions of The Courier-Gazette, The Camden Herald and The Republican Journal newspapers.

The games were more informal but there certainly was plenty of exciting action as players from all four Maine Principals' Association classes — A, B, C and D — played together and against one another.

Structure often was thrown out the window, for the most part, and the gymnasium again became another driveway or playground court for fun-filled, pickup games.

Every player appeared to walk off the court, after representing their schools for the final time, with smiles on their faces, and perhaps new friendships and new-found respect for other area hoopsters — even, in some cases, getting an opportunity to play alongside neighboring rival athletes.
