FRANK 106.9, WBQX FM will broadcast local high school basketball for its eighth consecutive year beginning Friday, Dec. 8 when the Camden Hills Windjammers travel to Lincoln Academy to battle the Eagles in a boys matchup.

Veteran broadcaster Don Shields returns to lead the coverage. He will be joined by Terry Spear and Chris Seavey for the 34 game regular season that will include Wiscasset, Oceanside, Medomak Valley, Camden Hills, Belfast, Searsport, Lincoln Academy and Mt. View high schools.

The station is also planning to broadcast selected games involving these same schools during the Northern Maine Classes A and B, and Southern Maine Classes C and D Tournament from Augusta and Bangor in February.

“People are passionate about high school basketball in Midcoast Maine and the response to our coverage from fans and sponsors has been outstanding,” said Stan Bennett.

Shields, who is also the voice of the University of Maine Women’s basketball team, has been the voice of Midcoast Maine high school sports since 1985, calling more than 1,300 high school games in that time.

Spear has been covering basketball for nearly two decades in the Midcoast, Biddeford and Bath-Brunswick markets.

Seavey, a former Rockland District high school standout, has more than a decade of on-air experience.
