Sports Around Greely High School

Sports Around Greely High School

Great day out today, sun in the sky, only a few clouds, so all in all a great day to be outside. Many spring sports are underway, but the weather in the past is making it harder to play for many of the kids. Despite the scattering of good weather, the rain and snow has stayed on the fields. Any player that tries to venture onto the grassy fields risks destroying them for all the water that's made it a marsh-land. My friend Lexi, griped about it today and told me how her softball team has been meeting in the gym, and even in sunny weather like today, may not be able to get onto the fields. Unlike the people on my tennis team, they are not in their natural element, and can't wait for the sun to stay put for a while.

Greely Girls Tennis Practice

Greely Girls Tennis Practice

Coryn here, posting about the Greely Girl's tennis practice taking place today down at the Valhalla golf course tennis courts. For some people that may not know much about tennis, I put up and image of the basic tennis court. On the actual court, the helpful words that describe each line tend to be left out. It's a great day to be outside, and fourof the courts down there are open, though the other two were a bit wet a week before. They're all set up now! Tennis practice for the greely girls starts at 4:30, and ends between 6:00 and 6:30. It's a great day to play tennis outside today, a nice blessing from the rain and mist we had earlier in the week. With the opening of the courts, it means that all you tennis pro's out there no longer have to stay indoor-reliant, and you can go out and play in your "natural element"

Critical Trail Link In Question

Critical Trail Link In Question

The Sebago to the Sea Trail project is collaborative effort to create a contiguous trail from Sebago Lake to Casco Bay connecting Standish, Windham, Gorham, Westbrook, Portland and Falmouth. Plans to establish the Sebago to the Sea Trail from South Windham to Westbrook were recently stalled by a $4 million bond that was passed to lay rail tracks down on the Mountain Division Rail corridor between South Windham & Westbrook.

A fully collaborative initiative, the Sebago to the Sea Trail is estimated to one day be a 28-mile hiking (and in some areas biking) trail, beginning at Sebago Lake and ending at Casco Bay. Already over 8 miles have been designated on Portland Water District’s Sebago Lake Land Reserve and along the Mountain Division Trail (a Rail with Trail corridor).
