Bangor - The Foxcroft Academy Ponies girls basketball team has quite a few players coming back from last year's team, so they are hoping to be in the hunt for tournament time. Blake Smith is in his first season as head coach at Foxcroft and he is new to the area, which gives him an disadvantage starting out the season. Smith is confident he will learn about the teams they are going to be play this season fairly quickly.
Foxcroft returns star player MacKenzie Coiley, who scored 20 points in a preseason tournament game this weekend at the Bangor Auditorium. The Ponies have a good core of players returning along with others who have decided to come back after sitting out for a couple seasons. They are hoping they get a chance to play in February at the Bangor Auditorium.
I talked to coach Smith about his first season at Foxcroft Academy. Smith talked about some of the players returning and star player MacKenzie Coiley having to do a lot of the scoring this year.
