Presque Isle boys looking for tournament run

By  | 

The Presque Isle boys are in the middle of a very busy part of the schedule. They spent the last two days in the Ellsworth MDI area and then on Monday they will host Old Town. The Cats are once a very gritty team that features several players who are tenacious
(Terrry Cummings):" The mark of the Presque Isle Wildcats in my tenure here this is my eighth year hard nosed kids that work hard all the time. They never give up and believe they can win the game."

The Wildcats had some big shoes to fill thousand point scorer Griffin Guerrette graduated last year and this year everyone is stepping up.

Cummings:" It's been a transition when you lose a thousand point scorer. We have adjusted pretty well we have some starters back and they have stepped up and it has been a good start so far."

(Jonah Hudson):" We knew it going to be tough to replace someone who scored 28 points a game. Coming into the season we knew it was going to have to be a group effort. All of us chipping in and me filling in at the point I think we have handled it pretty well so far."

Jason Dumais is back this year after missing part of last year with an injury. Dumais has extended his shooting range hitting six three's against Houlton

(Jason Dumais):" One of the big things I didn't do a couple of years ago was spread the floor and shoot those threes. I was kind of a mid range and now I have a three pointer and that has given me more freedom outside the paint."

Jonah Hudson has been the team's leading scorer so far this year. He says that this is a hard working squad that has great chemistry.

Hudson:"Everyone has bought in from day one and everyone is working hard at practice and just a great team to be on."

The Wildcats picked up a huge win over Orono earlier this year and are looking for a successful season Cummings says that improving foul shooting is a goal of the team. He says the team is working hard on defense and are getting more comfortable every day. The goal is to get back to Bangor

Cummings:" I believe we can make a deep tournament run. We believe this year if everybody stays healthy I think we will have a pretty successful season."
